We were amazed that the chair shipped so quickly and for only $2.95. When it arrived it was in very good shape with only one small nick on one of the legs, nothing to worry about. We had looked elsewhere for a similar chair and were dissapointed is both price and availability. The price was right at overstock.com and the chair is wonderful. It is a comfortable chair, but has to be a significant distance from the wall to be able to recline fully. The leather is of good solid quality and so far the char is very sturdy. It is not hard to recline and looks very good as a piece of furniture, not just another recliner. It is exactly what we expected . A good value for the money.
