This chair is made from high quality materials and was easy to assemble. It is lightweight with the mesh upholstery and works well. It is comfortable and balanced and glides like a dream. Purchased for a heavy man (240#) and it works well for him. Hoping I get to sit in it, too. Although it feels like a big chair overall, the fixed (not adjustable) lumbar support is the perfect curve. Arms are adjustable in height, but not width. I like the gray color in my home office in the kitchen -- less stark and more stylish than the basic black. It looks really good with my stainless steel appliances! The price was a little higher than I would like to pay, but I have watched cheaper chairs fall apart in one year. This one should last!
I've had this chair for a couple of days now, and these are my first impressions. If you're small, you're going to get lost in this bad boy. I'm 6'3" and 220 lbs, and for me it's great. The furniture frame material description on Overstock is misleading - it indicates that it is all plastic - not true - the frame is mostly steel. The chair arrived in a very solid box and was very well packaged. For me that was an indication of professionalism from the start. The chair itself is no lightweight, it weighs 50 lbs and is most definitely a quality product. The instructions were straight forward, and I put it together in 15-20 minutes. Like I said earlier, this is a big chair. The tilt locking mechanism is great. I often like to sit with the chair back fixed, and this one allows for this with no issue. The tilting option is also really comfortable I have to say - it is very firm - you won't go flying over backwards if you're into leaning. The lumbar support seems good, I don't have back issues, but I can safely say that it's really comfortable to sit in all day, and if you're so inclined, you can move the lumbar support bar up and down - with the right Allen keys. The arms on this chair might bother some people. They are pretty widely spaced apart, so a petite lady might find them of little use. I like the folding facility, as it enables me to push the chair in further under my desk, thereby minimizing its footprint, but aside from that they can't be adjusted. I'm fairly broad, so for me I lucked out, it's almost like it was designed for me. A word of warning though. If you intend using this chair on a carpeted floor, be advised that my carpet is getting chewed up by the wheels. I'm having to order a chair mat - probably normal practice I suppose. This chair would be perfect on hardwood flooring. All-in-all, I'm very impressed. What do you spend on a good chair? $65, $100, $1,000? I guess it all depends on your bank balance, or how tight you are. My company recently upgraded all its office furniture, and I checked the cost of the chairs online. Evidently they were in the region of $1,200 each - (I'd love to have had the sales person's commission for that contract). To me, $*for a home office chair is probably a bit much, but I'm also a big believer in quality, so I'm dubious of anything under $200 (which is probably stupid). Anyway, I did a lot or research, and this seemed like a good deal, significantly cheaper than on Amazon, and although there weren't too many reviews, I'd seem some others for similar chairs made by the same company. I can safely say I have no post purchase dissonance. This chair is a keeper!
This is a very solid chair. You can tell the build quality while assembling the massive pieces of steel. To be able to also make such a sturdy piece adjustable is a feat of engineering. The real test will be time in my opinion. I have owned several office chairs from supermarkets that ran about the same price as this chair and they all only lasted a year or so. This is due to the faulty plastic construction based on having the support for the backrest being completely derived from the armrests. The fault being the bottom-back screw that attaches to the chair seat. All of the chairs I owned previously broke in this exact same spot. That is why I specifically looked for a chair with separated back and arm rest supports with a sturdy steel construction. I found this. I am quite happy with it. I can only give it a four star right now as only time will tell the true build quality. Also, the arm rests are wobbly when fully extended outward, even after tightening the support bolts with a wrench.
Appearance: correct as in details and picture. Black, cleanly-stitched leather cushions add an accent to the chrome five-point base, hydraulic, and armrests. Assembly: if you've put one of these types of chairs together before, it should be a snap. Took me about 30 minutes, but I was disheveled and excited, so that probably added at least an extra 10 minutes to assembly time. All tools and hardware included with package. I had a couple issues with my previous chair that led me into purchasing this one. The old chair's seat cushion flattened in less than a month - this one is still plush, and returns to its natural form when I leave the chair. Secondly, the old chair's hydraulic lift slipped constantly and it was just not worth replacing only the hydraulic unit. I enjoy many aspects about this chair, namely the contoured back and waterfall design of the cushioning, and the padded armrests. I do wish the hydraulic lift increased a couple inches though; the spec of 37 3/4" tall is with the hydraulic fully extended. The fact that it blends so well with my modern decor (black, stainless steel, & glass) is an added bonus.
