This chair is a great value. This chair is very similar to the Ballard Phillipe Chair for a fraction of the cost. I'm planning to reupholster it to give it more of a custom look. For those who don't want to deal with that, the brick upholstery is more the color of a terra cotta pot, not a brick red. The fabric has a herribone pattern. The back of the chair (not pictured on Overstock's website) is also upholstered and features a wood "X" back similar to the arms.
