Rated 5 out of 5 by BigJohn A Big Man's Best Friend!
We gentlemen of majestic girth often have problems fitting into modern armchairs - too narrow, arms too close together, not sturdy enough, etc., but when I saw this chair I knew it was exactly what I wanted - massively sturdy, rounded back, wide design, and thoroughly un-modern! When it arrived it exceeded all my expectations! Magnificent look and design, and such perfect fit and comfort in every way it was as though the designer had measured me and tailor-made it to fit! Some say the seat is too hard, but I find that for someone my size it gives me just exactly the right amount of support for pure comfort. Everything about this chair is total, complete perfection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ssglovelace Simply flawless
I purchased this chair several years ago and now searching for another. The one I bought years ago is still as perfect as the day I bought it. Sturdy, easy to clean, seat is still firm (not sagging in seat) and simply elegant. I've had several people offer to purchase from me... But there is no way I am parting with the chair... Ever! Worth every penny!! That's why I'm buying another.....

by Jewels66 Exactly what I wanted for the look of the room
The chairs came packaged very well and were in excellent condition except one small mark on the wood on one of the chairs. The seat of the chair is a bit stiff and I would not use is for a long time, like for watching tv. The chair was exactly what I wanted and basicly a peace of 3d art. The visual effect in the room with my off white curved English loveseats is wonderful. I am really glad I got them!

Rated 2 out of 5 by maxxnas Not The Quality I Expected
I was anxious to receive this chair for my study. On the plus side the fabric is quite beautiful. It is a firm chair but I actually like how that feels. The size was also nice. It came to my door very well packaged.
Now here are my other observations.
1) Sloppy carving
2) The stain isn't really a stain but more like a paint. I'm guessing they use this technique to cover up the poor quality wood. If it were a "good" solid hardwood then you would allow the grain to show and be enhanced by the stain like all quality furniture. For all I know it's not even made of hardwood or they are using a lot of filler.
3# hand-tacked <-- This term should not even be allow to be used in the description. I reupholstered my piano bench and had to pull out over 200 upholstery nails and hammer them back. These are NOT real upholstery tacks #nails# but rather a series of connected plastic look-alike upholstery tacks that get hammered every 5 or 6 spaces. It's obvious it comes off a roll and they quickly tack them in.
4) Below the arms there sits a little vertical column of wood on each side. They apparently forgot to "stain" in between those and you plainly see bare wood
5) Buyer beware - The chair is overpriced for the quality. While it is a unique style and at first glance looks impressive, upon closer inspection the true quality of this piece reveals itself clearly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Norma64 These chairs are perfect for our room!
The excellent and unusual design and look of these gentlemen's chairs were the reason we were willing to wait 8 months for their delivery. I wasn't looking for comfort necessarily (tightly upholstered so a pretty hard sit) -- they are great for our purposes. They look elegant next to the fireplace in our gentlemen's room! I am having 2 ottoman made to go with them and velvety back pillows to add to the comfort. These chairs are very special - you won't see them in anyone else's home for sure!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JACK17 Looks great, but ...
Looks great, but the cushion was far from plush. Too firm, not really comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TPL1 Absolutely magnificent piece of furniture.
Have had this so far for a few weeks and it has been beyond expectations. Actually came week's earlier than anticipated. Well worth any wait. I bought two and arranged as a drawing room in front of a fire place. Perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by atlantasteve a rare find of a chair
This is one beautiful chair for a living room or den. Actually I purchased two of these chairs and believe there is nothing that would match how they look in front of the fireplace. In the daylight the upholstery appears light in color but in the evening it seem dark in hues. The wood is beautifully carved and the front feet are large and masculine. Solid chair worth the long wait. I have not seen anything like this anywhere else. A reproduction of an antique is top notch for me. I don't have to look at something that may look and smell old and wonder what it looked like when it was fresh and new. I'll take the new. Perfect gentleman's chair! Oh, and it is better looking than as pictured in the ad.
