This chair is really too big for my tiny office located in a walk in closet. However it is VERY comfortable to sit in for long periods of time. This is because the seat is very deep and has a "waterfall" edge on the front. This kind of a design supports the legs better than seats that are less deep and/or do not have the padded curve on the front. The back also has a very firm lumbar support that keeps the lower back from sagging after sitting for a long time. The chair is nice looking: matte black leather that cleans up well and resists stains atop matte plastic legs. The material on the back however is thinner than on the front (vinyl vs. leather?), and I imagine if the back edges brush the walls very often, it is going to abrade rather quickly. The seat is well padded, but the weight of a person sitting for a long time will probably flatten it over time. I weigh about 130 pounds, and I am already beginning to see the "cushiness" of the seat lessen after only a month of use. A heavier person might flatten the seat that much sooner. The back on this chair is higher than I need, but because the user can set the "tilt" of the chair, it is very comfortable for me when I lean back to rest from sitting at the computer too long. A six foot individual would find the dimensions of this chair just about perfect.

I was very careful not to purchase "bonded leather", which is not leather at all. It is Poly Urethane mixed with scrap leather, and basically, in my opinion is bogus! This is leahter, well cushioned, very comfortable, and priced very reasonably.You can get more, and pay more, but, for somone that is in the office all day as I am, I am very pleased with this purchase, and would absolutely reccomend it! P.S. very easy to assemble!!!
Very Nice Chair
kglad from orange, ca
this is a very nice office chair. i've purchased 3 other office chairs in the past 10 years. all of them were high-backed black leather and all of them were a disappointment. i just received this one yesterday and, so far, i like this chair. i just need to see how the arm rests hold-up over the next year or so to judge durability and make a final judgement. the assembly directions aren't fabulous but they are almost exactly the same as the directions for the other chairs i've ordered so i already knew to unpack all the bolts and washers carefully and keep each group of bolts separate and organized. all the bolt holes have grommets, the grommets are securely seated and all the bolts mated to their grommets perfectly. and that perfect mating was a bit of a surprise. in my (limited) experience, there's usually some strong-arming required for one or two bolt/bolt holes. but there were no assembly problems with this chair. the only tool needed is an included allen wrench. even before assembly, you can feel the leather is very supple for a chair this inexpensive. once assembled, you can appreciate the lumbar support is excellent, the arm-rest, seat and back cushioning is very comfortable, the hydrolic mechanism works, as expected, and the casters are fair. i still want to see that the arm rest cushioning does not crush with use. i've seen that problem twice in other chairs. if these arms hold-up i would give this chair an unqualified thumbs-up even when compared with chairs costing 3 times as much.

We have had this chair for a few years now. It has held up well. Looks very professional and is comfortable to sit in for hours.
EXCELLENT BUY BUT SEVERAL CAUTIONS
Brooklyn Bill from Newark, DE
[...] Directions were a bit foggy in places but the isometric drawing was helpful and aided in assembly. All assembly using bubble packed allen head bolts and washers. Tilt and up/down height adjustments work just fine. Arms far more secure than many higher priced office chairs. Professional appearance and sturdy. Biggest concern for me as a user is (1) the lower cushion on the seat back serves in effect as a lumbar support and it protrudes more than expected plus it is fairly rigid making for some mild discomfort so this will take some personal adjusting, and (2) when relaxing with a straight back and looking forward there is almost 3" from the back of your head to the top cushion on the chair instead of being "just a touch away". These two issues are key for me so I would say the chair does not have the best ergonomic design. In that respect I am disappointed. All other features are fine.
I absolutely LOVE my new leather chair!!

I was looking for an ergonomic office chair for my home office, and was dismayed at the high prices I was seeing online. After two days of researching different chairs I happened upon your store, and saw this beautiful glove leather $750 chair on sale for [$]. Pinching myself, I ordered it,[...] I assembled the chair myself (I'm a single woman) without too much trouble, and am completely and utterly delighted with it! It is exquisitely made and very handsome. The color of the leather goes perfectly with my antique burled walnut work desk, and the leather is luxurious and soft. I can spin around in circles if I want to, and in spite of being a rather large chair, it rolls back and forth like a dream.I also LOVE a good bargain, and this was the best one I've found in years. I've been unemployed since May, so every penny counts, and I am extremely grateful to your company for this magnificent offer! This is one of those instances where something seemed too good to be true, but it was and is true, and I'm very happy. The whole experience is a ten on a scale of 1-5! Thank you!
