When the box arrived I was scared to open it since I could tell there was going to "assembly required". To my amazement I had the chair put together in less than 20 minutes. Everything you need to assemble it is included. From the looks of it there seems to have been some kind of assembly problem and they threw in a revised screws/parts pack so you are left with lots of extra pieces. One word of caution, do not overly tighten the screws - the metal will concave inward if you over tighten.

The leather is soft and seems to be of high quality but I was disappointed to see that you can see material hanging from the bottom of the chair where it is stapled to the cushion. It was not folded over and then tacked or stapled in place. A blunt cut was made and then stapled near the edge.

The chair is comfortable and has amble padding, but it lacks ergonomic features like lumbar support and easy back support adjustments. I would not recommend it for real long periods of time like working an 8-hour work day. These are great for a computer desk at home or as conference table chairs. I have it stationed at my work station at home. It makes the desk and room look elegant and sophisticated.

One very annoying feature I must admit is the wheels. Instead of using some kind of plastic over the wheels metal tabs that insert into the metal stand, you can hear metal clanking every time you sit or move the chair.

This is pretty much a bog-standard inexpensive office chair. If you've ever assembled a similar chair then you'll know that they all seem to go together the same way and all the parts for all such chairs might be made in the same factory in China as they all have very similar construction.

This one is sufficiently comfy, and the tension-adjustable tilt mechanism makes it much much more comfortable than a fixed non-reclining chair.

The bright chrome plating makes it look a little bit cheap in my opinion, but that's just an aesthetic choice, not really a deficiency in the product.

The casters included are smallish, and roll pretty freely, so on a hard surface it will move around very easily, which may or may not be what you want. Much more expensive chairs give you the option of hard-surface casters which have more friction in them so that the chair stays put better on a hardwood floor or chair mat, but the included casters are typical for this type of product.

The downward curving arms mean the chair fits a bit better under a desk or keyboard tray than some.

The leather is nice and gives it a more high-end look and feel.

The seat cushion seems a bit wimpy to me, and I have a concern as to whether it is thick enough to hold up to long term use, but so far it's OK.

The only adjustments are seat height and tilt tension, but you can also lock the tilt so that the chair will not recline (much) by pressing the height adjustment lever inwards. The range of tilt and tension seem good to me.

It's really hard to choose a chair without sitting it it, but if you like the look of this one then I can say that it seems fine and has no major flaws or downsides that we have discovered.

I have to admit, It took me 15 minutes to pop this together. (If you purchased anything from IKEA, then you are all set for this)
it comes with very easy instructions, its own wrench and all the screws seem to have some kind of thread lock on it - nice!

PROS:
1) The BASE and arm rests are metal.. pure heavy metal.. shiny and nice!

2) The padding is comfy a nice amount on the arms, back and especially the butt!

3) The Adjustable height stays tight, no sagging. (I am about 180 pounds...)

4) I love this even as a Stool! I used this chair in two places.. one at my work space as a stool! I actually LOVE it as a stool!
No Arms, No back and I was comfy! I may use this in my little office just for a computer stool where I don't like a big chair!

5) COMFY! when fully assembled... yes THIS is a comfy Chair!
Adjustable height, Adjustable recline tension.. yeah I can take a nap.... I mean *work hard* in this chair!
NOTE: It does have some lumbar support but does NOT have adjustable lumbar support, so if you like or need extra support you may need a lumbar pad.

6) Adjustable Tilt Tension.. make it as tight.. or as loose as you like.. (I like it tighter.. I am afraid I will flip over! )

Ok.. the one con..
1) The Castors are in MY opinion cheap.. They should of went with better ones. We have a shop floor (epoxy coated poured concrete)
and I have seen these generic casters get stuck after a while and then get flat spots, luckily you can get new casters easily enough.

Oh .. And for the Big Question...IS it Leather?? I got an answer!
As stated in a few other reviews I also looked all over I can't find it anywhere.

Not much to state on this what hasn't been said in the other reviews. This is a very attractive looking chair and the leather does seem to look high end. The chair is comfortable seating and the arms are ergonomically placed for maximum comfort. I will state I am a woman in her 50's who is a little challenged when it comes to assembling these kinds of things. Although I was able to do it, it took me almost an hour to do as I found the instructions difficult to follow. It may be me, so I hate to deduct more than a star in the rating, but I think assembly could be clearer and easier to make this a more quality chair. Also, the fact that there is no adjustable lumbar support could also be a downside. However, to be honest, it's as nice as anything I saw in Office Max when I was there a few weeks ago and was easily $20-40 less in cost. I would recommend this chair but please be sure you are up for the challenge of assembly.
