Rated 1 out of 5 by Alex1980 Dislike it...a lot.
I honestly believe that this chair is but one small step up from a concrete park bench. The description says “Picture curling up with a good book in the wide-seated comfort of our plush, Toscano-exclusive armchair!”. There is no desire to sit in this chair a second time what-so-ever, let alone “curling up”. The firmness is perfect if you have someone with physical limitations that cannot get up from a modern “squishy” seating surface. It is the kind of chair where you sit on the edge of the cushion, with your very best posture.
The workmanship is not the quality that I, a discerning consumer, have come to expect from Design Toscano since my first purchase in 2003. The upholstery is attached unevenly (crooked), the wood finish is basically just black paint.
For $1,000 + freight, I personally expect much better. Save your money to go buy a real antique and have it refinished and reupholstered to your own demanding specifications. I feel as though I would have been more satisfied doing that over purchasing this chair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 1timebuyer The chair we were buying was a natural hard wood. We received a painted unknown wood. Althugh spacious it is quite uncomfortable to sit in. It does no
t look too bad but would look great with the natural hard wood instead of black house paint.

Rated 0 out of 5 by NH This chair is everything I hoped for. When you first enter the room you WILL think I bought an antique. The style and fabric look very period. In fact, the fabric looks a little worn, as it would be if old. The color is muted which is great for me as I have it on a Karastan carpet that steals the show. The chair is very firm, not cushy but that's ok for us as it is more for looks in the area we are using it. It is very light weight, not unmovable as it's bulk makes you think.
