We got this chair for my parents office. The arms were difficult to put together, holes were not aligning but eventually we got it to work. The arms are plastic, not metal which I did not realize before the purchase. Overall this is an OK chair if you don't want to spend a lot of money.
Chair complements the traditional decor of our study. Would have preferred arm and leg color to be available in an oak finish. Purchased two for our work areas. I'm only 5'2", so a lumbar pillow makes it more comfortable. My husband's chair was dropping pellet ball bearings within a few months of purchase. Overstock quickly replaced the chair. Despite the "driftwood" finish on the chair legs developing small chipped areas from contact with shoes, overall, these chairs have held up well with daily use. Abrasions on legs can be touched up with a dark marker.
This chair is made by Bassett and does have to be fully assembled, arms included and back attached. It has 3 sizes of bolts and 1 was missing for the metal plate holding the base to the chair, so it tilts. I have to unscrew one to find a match at the hardware store. The back support and padded arms are great. Beware, this is a HUGE chair, so if you want a medium tall, this is bigger...46" tall.
I have owned this chair for a few months, so now I feel confident about leaving a review. I am a REALLY big guy and this chair hold me fine. Usually the gas chamber that holds the chair at the proper height is the first thing to go, not on this chair, it's still going strong. The seat is wide and the padding is comfortable for all day use. I work in an office at a desk and sit for a lot of an 8 hour work day. The only complaints i have is the depth of the seat could be an inch more and the back could be at a slightly better angle. The base is made of metal and is very sturdy. That and the wheels are usually the second thing to break on cheaper office chairs. I have seen this same chair on other websites for over $500.00 so I was very happy with the price i paid here on Overstock.
