The subject of debate in our home
 Aug 22, 2008

I bought this chair after reading several reviews because of it's color, which is a very nice true red, with no hint of burgandy, but still a mellow red, not at all garrish or loud. When it arrived I had the legs on in practically no time without any trouble, just screw them in after slipping on the washers. The chair is sturdy but not heavy, I would prefer it to be a little bit heavier. The debate in our home is about whether or not it is a comfortable chair....a subject about which we have agreed to disagree. I am 5 feet three inches tall and I find it comfortable, but the taller men who have sat in it find it uncomfortable, as they must sit up straight in it. In the pictures it looks like it could be a good lounging chair, but it is too narrow and shallow from front to back to be that. It is more the demension of a chair at a posh doctor's office waiting room, the kind that is comfortable but only when you sit up straight. So for those of us who sit up straight it is a great chair, for those who need to slouch, keep looking. The leather appears to be of good quality and it is a nice looking chair I am not sending it back because it fits the spot where I wanted to put it very well and the color is perfect....but if it were the only TV watching chair in the room it would have been back in the box and returned the next morning. I think two of these chairs facing one another with an ottoman in between them would be very cozy indeed...though I don't personally have room for that in my den just now, if you do then you should set them up that way. They would be very stylish and I think then even tall men would like them too! :-)
