This chair set is a great deal for the price. It is not super-high quality; the fabric is thin and seems likely to wear quickly and the padding on the arms is fairly minimal, but it looks good and is actually quite comfortable. It's not a squishy sink-into-it chair, but the seat and back are comfy and provide good support. It's just wide enough that I can tuck a leg under myself. Not great for those who like to sit sideways in chairs due to the thin arm padding. The ottoman is a good height, just a hair shorter than the chair. The seat is too deep front-to-back for a short person (I'm 5'4") to sit with back against the chair back and feet on the floor, so short folks may need to add a throw pillow against the back for optimal comfort. The fabric colors are muted and blend well with nearly any near-neutral or earthy palette. The fabric, as mentioned before, is not as thick as standard upholstery fabric and my cat managed to snag it with his claws by just jumping off of it within 24 hours. I don't think I'd recommend this chair set for a household with young children due to perceived lack of durability. Assembly (which consists of screwing in the legs on chair and ottoman) was super easy. The hardest part was getting the chair out of the box and into the house all by my lonesome. Still, I think this chair is a good value for the price, feels solid and definitely looks classier than many other chairs in this price range. It would be nice if the same style chair and ottoman set were avilable in a selection of solid colors.
