I am enjoying this chair. As a few people noted, the profile is quite low, which works perfectly in my smaller space. The finish is a bit shiny, but I like it. The cushion is a bit stiff, but I imagine that will soften and it really doesn't bother now anyway. I did have a bit of trouble screwing in 2 of the legs. There seemed to be some sort of block within the wood part of the chair. Once I cleared that out (with a chopstick!) I was able to put all the legs on fine. I would buy another if I had another place for it.
