I was looking for a comfortable, attractive, well built, and modern looking recliner at a reasonable price. This meets all my requirements. It fits me perfectly. I'm 5 ft 4 in tall, so most recliners hit me in all the wrong spots. This is the first one that hasn't required me to use an extra cushion for the small of my back. It's very sturdy, and I like being able to make it recline without using a handle on the side. It's really hard to find an attractive, modern looking recliner that doesn't cost a fortune. This is the style I wanted, and the black bonded leather is beautiful and soft. I couldn't have found a better chair unless I was prepared to spend several thousand dollars. My only complaint is that the delivery people left the box in the driveway instead of in front of the door. This was really irritating because I was sick and had to struggle to push it to the door.
I've had this chair in use for about two years. It doesn't have a huge amount of use and because the color is so light, an off-white, I keep it covered. It is an extremely comfortable chair for me...I'm 5'4". Not sure how it would work for an extremely tall person. It's attractive and I've been very pleased with it.
Ordered the chair for some expected houseguests who were older and had problems getting in/out of some of our lower / plush chairs. Given the price (including delivery) it seemed that if I got even minimal use out of the chair, it would be OK. It worked out great for them and I use it sometimes as well when my own knees are acting up. As other reviewers say, you can't recline unless you leave room behind the chair, but that isn't an issue where we use it. The light sand color may get dirty over time; I'm considering ordering one of those 'chair covers' to protect it from kids/dogs and general dirt. The seating is higher vs. my husband's recliner and its pretty firm (at least to start). It is attractive and has the advantage of not being a huge, looming presence in the family room (unlike my husband's recliner). I'm pleased and would especially recommend it if you were looking for seating for someone who (a) is not a very large person, and (b) perhaps has some mobility issues and could use good arm support to get in/out of the chair. It's entirely functional, attractive, sturdy, easy to assemble but its not a piece that will likely become a family heirloom.
