I'd been on the hunt for a great looking, quality built desk chair since beginning to work from home two months ago. I stumbled across this "Manhattan Plus" after hours of scouring Amazon.com and Overstock seemed to have the best prices so I ended up here. The order process was easy, the shipping was cheap (although it had originally said I'd pay nothing for my first item but was charged $2.95) - my only complaint was that after purchased the item was reduced by 15% in price and I was told "that's just the way it is" by a Chat representative. They offered me an Overstock credit on my next order, but I've never seen that come through. Anyway, on to the chair. What grabbed me was the classic styling of the chair and the clean lines, none of these crazy s-shaped seat backs or ribbed cushions. The fake leather is of high-quality, if you can say that about something that's fake, and I thought the cushioning was ample for a day of on-again / off-again desk work. I HATED that the legs and other metal components were wrapped in this blue plastic wrap, but I guess that was to protect the finish. The arms of the chair are unobtrusive which is good for my use since I also play guitar and they don't interfere. Since they're just bolt on arms it would be very easy to remove them and I think the chair would look normal. Finally, ever have that experience when you've bought something or researched it and then you see it everywhere? I now see this chair and other "Manhattan" style chairs EVERYWHERE. I've seen these on TV shows (How I Met Your Mother seems to have them in every apartment scene), in architectural magazines as stock seating and, most notably, on the show room floor of my favorite furnishings store in town. So, although it's seemingly not unique, I love the chair and thought it was a great purchase.
Great chair! I went with green and other reviewers were right, it's more of a turquoise or bluish green which matched my home perfectly. I think if it's slightly off it the color just blended in well with my furnishings. I'm glad I went bold with color instead of just gray or black! NO REGETS!
