Very nice chair, very comfortable. I have a hardwood floor, so this is better than the swivel ones. Quite easy to assemble---obviously for a sturdy chair one should expect to do something more than just snap the legs on. I was afraid to buy it at first because of the assembly reviews, but now I cannot understand what the people were complaining about (especially considering the difference in reviews between this one and the same chair in black). The assembly went smoothly, very smart thinking from the designers there, because for such a good and sturdy chair, it could have been much harder to assemble. But after all that 's why one buys the chair, for the quality, and this one has it. Very pleased, seating on it as I write.
