Love this chair. It is very comfortable and doesn't look like a recliner which is great. It was hard to get it to recline at first but now goes back easily. I do use a pillow for my head to add extra support when in the total recline position but that works fine. Also, a tall person's legs would probably go off the foot rest but I'm 5'5" and it's fine. I love the look and quality of this chair. It's very stylish and the finishing silver stud nails add a touch of class.
