We bought two of them to update a little office alcove, and they are really nice. They tip back a bit a raise and lower, but the seats do not recline at all. We wouldn't be using them to recline in anyway -- they are office chairs! The seat is nice and firm... honestly we haven't sat in them for any length of time yet, but they are attractive and made by Sealy. They require assembly, and my husband says it helps to have a partner, but you could do it yourself.
The chair is beautiful and comfortable. Unfortunately, "some assembly is required." While this was not difficult - for the most part, neither my husband nor I were able to push the casters in. We ended up having to buy different, smaller casters, which we, then, shimmed.
