I've only had this chair for a month, so I can't attest to its durability yet. I will say that right out of the box, it was surprisingly stiff and sat quite high. It took a couple weeks to "break in" the cushions, but since they gave a little, the chair is pretty comfortable for brief sittings (for more than a brief time sitting in the chair, it definitely benefits from an ottoman). The color is gorgeous, just as it is represented on the site. The upholstery is soft to the touch, not super-slick and squeaky like I was afraid it might be. It was very light in the shipping carton, and easy for me to push into my house without help. Assembly was almost stupidly easy--it just pops together and the legs screw in. Overall, I'm very happy with this chair for our needs. I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for something to sink into with a good book for a long period of time (although that may depend on whether the cushions continue to soften or not). If you're looking for an accent chair comfortable enough for a chat or a cup of coffee, so far this fills the bill.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very good.
