Excellent Chair

 from Morrisville, NC– Verified Buyer

The delivery was great! It was an extermely large box though, because the chair comes already assembled and ready to go. The darker charcoal colors were not available, so I ended up going with the rootbeer, which looks like a dark grayish brown. It is actually very nice. The chair is super comfy and adjustable in every way. The best part is that I can feel that my back is properly supported, that the arm rest is right where I need it and that the seat is not so big that it is cutting off the circulation right behind my knees. Great Chair!
