Beardsley Heraldic Lion Armchair
Better than I'd even hoped
I had been coveting the Beardsley lion chair for a couple of years but always told myself that I couldn't really afford it.I meant it to stand with my 17th century English table which I'd inherited and which lacked three chairs. It was a fairytale table and I knew I needed something quite special so as not to disgrace it. The photo of the Beardsley chair was just the ticket. Later I told myself I'd built it up too much in my mind; that I was bound to be disappointed in the actual product. I was happily quite wrong. When I finally ordered the piece and it arrived, it took my breath away. It was actually even more beautiful than the photo. Moreover the dimensions were perfect for the dining table and very comfortable to sit and dine in. OK I'm gushing but I will add that I ordered the side chair as well and still haven't received it. Truly I can't wait!

Whow! What a chair!
The actual lion chair, the real thing, is much better looking than the way it looks in the ad. It is beautiful and royal. It sits comfortable. It is sturdy. It is an addition to the style I am incorporating throughout my house. Whoever is the mind at designtoscano who goes out and gets these products is much appreciated by me.

Needs better padding.
I like the chairs a great deal except for the padding. Initially i thought the seat padding was ok but it quickly compressed and requires me to sit on a loose cushion for comfort if I'm going to use the chair for any length of time. I expect I will have to take the chairs into a shop to get denser foam installed for a proper solution. I like the fabric a lot. Obviously carved in Asia for the price, but very solid and very good value for the level of detail.

Good Sturdy Chair
Well built, good sturdy chair. Nice fabric. Just the right weight, not too heavy. Color a little darker than expected, but matches close enough.This chair works well in my home. Thanks TOSCANO
