You're not paying peanuts for this item but you're also not paying top dollar which is why I think you're getting exactly what you pay for. A mediocre product for a moderate price. It looks good but so do some miniatures in a doll set, it doesn't mean you can sit in them comfortably. Yes it's stylish and the fabric is acceptable but it really is a smallish chair, at least for an adult male. They could have used more foam to give the back a little more substance and the poor design causes the seat cushion to stick up which is why they have Velcro underneath to keep it attached. But that still can't hide the faulty design. If you just want something that looks good for the occasional visitor, than this is fine but if you'd like something that is designed well and is comfortable for daily use then I would suggest another item.
