I purchased this chair to have something for my daughter to sleep on when she comes to visit. She now calls it her "rock bed." I tore the cover when trying to get it over the cushions, so I would recommend being very gentle. I placed the chair so you cannot see the tear and my room is very dimlit, so you can't tell. I reminded myself that I bought the chair on sale, Overstock has been great with my other purchases, and the chair works fine for what it was intended for. Otherwise, I would not recommend. If you're able to afford it, buy something else.
