I just purchased two of these chairs for my home. Unfortunately one of them was damaged during shipping. Its not very big. If you are of a larger frame consider something else. However its really comfortable. Its perfect for a small space because of the size. Absolutely no assembly required. It comes assembled. All you need to do is remove it from the box. its genuine leather and its very stylish. it compliments my living room set. As for the damaged chair I contacted Customer service and another one is on its way. I just wish they would provide expedite shipping for replacement item. I have to wait 5-10 days for my other chair.
