This such a fantastic chair in every way: the sleek mid-century modern styling, easy assembly, wonderfully soft upholstery, comfortable design, great price, and if you like teal like I do, it's a marvelous shade. Although the legs look delicate in the photos, this chair is amazingly sturdy, too. I weigh over 230 lbs. and it feels comfortable, level and very strong and stable - no worries that it will break. I bought it as an accent chair for my bedroom, and I use it every day to put on shoes and make-up, and to read and watch TV. I think it would make a great accent piece anywhere, from a living room to a dining room table. If you're looking for something that you will spend hours sitting on, like you would a recliner, this isn't the chair for you. But, if you're looking for a chair that is stylishly modern and elegant and also very well made, you will LOVE this chair!
