Previous Customers Experience:
Ok, as someone who worked in the furniture industry for more than 10 years I would like to give a more specific review.
– The wheelbase is made of plastic but it seems to be very sturdy.
– The castor wheels are the cheapest black ones model available.
– The seat foam is very cheap, actually it is the only thing I didn’t like in the chair, if the seat was made of a foam with better quality this product would reach a whole different level in terms of quality in general.
– The back piece is very comfortable actually, at least for me it is, and I am 6ft height and 100kg.
– The chair’s strucutre is very sturdy in general.
– The assembly instructions were made by someone who cares about the customer and really dedicate some time to make something decent.
In overall I believe it is a very good chair for the price, it is cheap but it is good cheap if you know what I mean.
I would buy another one from this model if I had to buy a second one.

This chair is extremely comfortable and after a days worth of work I don’t feel any discomfort like with other office chairs.

Previous customer review
One review said this chair only stays up or reclines completely flat. (that’s it) is this true? the picture shows a 3 position reclining chair.
Answer: When I recline the chair, I use the lever on the left to allow motion and then push the lever back to lock the back of the chair in any position from upright to fully reclined. It is NOT limited to any particular intermediate positions.
What is the height of the seat back? From seat to headrest. I’m 6’3″ and worried I won’t be able to rest my head in a sitting position.
Answer: I am a bit under 6 feet and the seat depth is too deep for me, but the back rest height is just fine for me ( would be short for you)).. suggest you look at other options that might fit you better. The chair is soft and comfortable, but chairs like this must fit your body, look at more options before you settle on this product. I like this product, but I should have looked into the size a bit more.
Will this chair lay completely flat when fully reclined so you can truely nap?
Answer: It’s not like as flat as a bed or the ground, but it is very close. I take naps on it all the time fully reclined. Also feels good to stretch your back with the recline. Very good chair, I really shouldn’t be taking naps, but hard not to with this chair!
What is the seat width?
Answer: SEAT WIDTH IS 22 1/2 INCHES
Description : This sturdy and elegant chair is certainly one that gives off the impression of a strong leader. With its double-layered soft cushion, thickened backrest and headrest, and design parallelling the human spine, you will be guaranteed a strain-free workspace.

The armrests are padded and can be flipped. You can rock and recline in this chair, and it boasts 360 degrees as well. It has smooth propel wheels, allowing for greater access
Previous Experience: It is super easy to put together. It has a nice high back which was important to me since I am 6’2″. I can sit in it all day without getting any fatigue. Arm rests move up which is nice to get closer to the desk. I was surprised at how sturdy it is because it really is only a few bolts that hold it together. The only thing I wish is that it had more adjustments. It rocks back and forth and goes up and down. It is pretty basic. It is hard to find chairs with more adjustments at this price point, but if I had to do it over again I would have spent a little more on a chair with more adjustment features. But that is because I work from home and use it a lot. If you are not planning on using it every day, then this might not be a big deal for you.
Are the armrests adjustable or removable?
Answer: No. Definitely not removable as the seat and back are not connected by anything other than the armrests. And not adjustable on height either, the armrests just flip up.

Previous Customer Experience –
After researching tireless hours on the web for a desk chair that offers the features for lower back support, comfortable sitting, high & adjustable arm-resting, head support…The web is so saturated with so many chairs and companies offering you the stars & moon with chairs that do not meet what they promise. Also found desk chairs with these features with a high price tag – were very expensive & over price. I wanted a comfortable desk chair that would support my lower back and long sitting hours. I took a risk with this chair and did not disappoint. I think the cost of this chair is relative to what it’s offering.

Previous Customer Experience –
I’m so in love with this chair! My husband gave this to me as anniversary gift and I’m loving it. It’s easy to assemble and everything you need comes with it. No need to use screw driver coz it uses allen key which is also included in the package. The color is more like heather pink which is really nice so it doesnt look that plane. It’s also comfortable and not creaking like my old chair.
What you should consider before buying an office chair?
Your proficiency, mood, and productivity largely depend on the type of chair you are going to use in your workspace, and that is why you must consider some crucial factors before buying the right chair. The things you should consider are –
- Height and backrest Adjustability – Thoroughly check if the chair offers height and backrest adjustability, which helps release tension in your shoulder, thighs, and back. Since you are going to spend a good amount of time sitting, consider chairs which suit your comfortability the most
- Armrests – Armrests are a must if you want to take the strain off your neck and shoulder. Preferably, consider chairs with adjustable and padded armrests for increased movement capacity and comfortability
- Lumbar Support – Look for chairs with adjustable seatback, which can be raised or lowered to increase comfortability in our lower back
- Movability – Look for chairs with casters(wheels), swivels that can help you move around easily and increase productivity
- Breathability and Airflow – It’s absolutely essential you choose a chair made of breathable material, and we have covered some good chairs for this.
- Comfort and Aesthetics: Choose chairs with material that only is comfortable for you, but also matches the environment of your workplace. Ideally, you would want to avoid bizarre and colourful chairs, opting for something sober and professional. Also, make sure that the chair is padded generously
