I didn't read the reviews prior to ordering this chair because I thought it was so beautiful. While the item was in transit I did read some of the reviews and was a little surprised to see someone say that the chair is short. Fortunately, that buffered my expectations before I received it. Yes, the chair is short! The description says the seat height is 16". This is true, but that is at its highest point which is the front edge. The back part, where your hind quarters will most likely go, is about 13" high. When I first assembled it and put it in the room I thought "this looks like it's almost a child's chair height." However, I have gotten more used to it and I hear that this is the style that is being considered normal. Once you sit in it, it feels like a normal height (I'm 5'8"), I don't feel like my legs are getting pushed up from the floor. The total height of the chair fits just under my normal height window sill, so if you are wanting a chair that will not obstruct your window, this is a winner. On the positive side, the chair's fabric and tufting are phenomenal. High quality, thick fabric. Impeccable tufting. It must be well cushioned because the cushioning is pretty firm. The legs are black are came with a little irregularities in the paint but I was able to screw the front legs on in such a way those irregularities were hidden. The only thing that didn't hold to the website's description is that it says there are silver nailheads or silver trim or something like that. I don't see ANY silver trim or nailheads on it at all. It would've been cool though.
