The "Mocha" color immediately caught my eye as an alternative to the all-too-common black that we all have too much of at work or in the home office. I have teak office furniture on a light brown colored carpet with lots of natural daylight and the addition of this chair in this mocha color creates a very warm appearance.
I really can't tell what the actual material is and don't care. It has a mild leather-like aroma which isn't really noticable. The stitching is clean and uniform with a lighter appearance. The tilt-back function is smooth (pull the adjustment lever out to the "FREE" position). I'm 6'4" and fit well with half of the head cushion in contact. An average sized person would feel cradled in this chair. A 300 pounder would still fit comfortably. Arm padding is moderate. Seat and seatback padding could be increased but an added seatpad would be better for cleaning purposes. Nice chair.
With an MSRP of $325, substantially discounted with Free Super Saver Shipping, this is a classy, functional and economical piece of furniture.
I purchased two lower-end mid-back office chairs made by Office Star for my daughters a year ago and they've held up very well to typical kid abuse. I expect this Executive High Back Eco Leather will be around for a long time. John
