We've been searching for a nice leather swivel chair for about two or three years. We also wanted something a little less bulky than the normal leather recliners you find in every furniture store around. This one is perfect. It suits my 6-foot husband well ...he can support his head with the head rest, he can recline in it, and he can swivel around to face the TV. It suits my 5'4" frame...but more importantly, if fits our furniture style. It's comfy, and not bulky...a little more refined looking than the normal recliner. We returned the first one ONLY because we didn't like the color in our living room (it was the Diego Earth Yellow) and are re-ordering the Royal Tobacco color, and anxiously awaiting its arrival. I have already recommended this Leather Swivel Recliner Glider to our friends.
