Just like the photo

I wanted this chair so badly, I called all over IL to get it. It was worth it. If you're having difficulty finding it, I suggest calling around to every store in your area and surrounding areas as there ARE stores that still carry this.

Pros:
1) Just look at it. The color scheme and the style can't be beat.
2) Are you kidding me on this price? Go to Anthropologie and you'll pay at least $1,000 more for this style.
3) The quality is really impressive. I was a little worried that for the price, the quality would be poor but I've been pleasantly surprised.

Cons:
1) This isn't a chair you can just sink into. It's comfy but you definitely need a ottoman or foot stool to be comfortable.

If you see this chair and like the color, jump on it!

love this chair!!!!

order two of this chair to place in family room, was a bit concerned with the front legs having such small casters but they turn out to be very sturdy. The seat is comfortable and wide and just enough tilt in the back that allows you to lounge in a good position. And the color is great as well, fits into my décor very well.

Beautiful and Comfortable

By

Very lovely chair, comfortable and well-made. The colors are a little less intense in person, I thought, but still a unique combination. I love the more traditional fabric and shape with the modern looking color combination. Using this as a reading chair and as a desk chair for a low antique desk. Shipping was speedy, and it was easy to put together (just the legs have to be attached, and they are stored in the zipped compartment under the seat!)

Exactly what I wanted

Buying furniture online is always a challenge, but I had my fingers crossed with this one and it paid off. It was exactly what I was looking for. It was super easy to assemble, it is sturdy and most importantly, it looks great -- I have it in my guest bedroom. Unfortunately, my dog thinks I bought it for him to sleep on.

Even more attractive in person

By

Purchased 2 of these chairs on sale to complete my living room. When the arrived, I was happily surprised that they were a little larger and more spacious than I'd anticipated. The color online is very accurate to what you'll see in person. The chair is on the firmer side which is great if you have a bad back or just add a throw pillow for more cush. Very happy with these chairs. The only downside is the cost of handling per chair, I could have bought a third chair for the price.

I love this chair. It's just what I hoped it would be. And it got here so quickly. I was really pleasantly surprised. The colors are beautiful and quality is excellent. I LOVE the wheels on the front. Makes it so easy to move around the room if I need to.

Better than I hoped for

By

I hate buying things off line that I can't see in person first at the store. This style of chair was our favorite at the store but I still was unsure about buying it in a fabric I could only see on line. The combination of olive green and blue really is a perfect fit for our house and this chair has become a comfortable place that is used daily. It seems that everyone that walks into our house comments on the chair in regard to look and comfort.

Looks and Feels Expensive

By 

from Undisclosed

I purchased a pair of these chairs in 2011. This chair is very well constructed and the fabric on both of mine is as good as the day I purchased them. This chair stands up to 3 boys and their need to drag furniture all over the room as they eat and play. The castors concerned me at bit when I brought them home, as they look quite dainty, but they are solid metal and we've had no problems with them. The colors make a lovely accent in our family room without fuss. I shopped at several stores looking for an upholstered chair in a smaller scale, and just could not stomach the 400+-600+ price tags that seem the norm for chairs of this sort. This chair fits the bill perfectly for price and you get more then you pay for with it.

Lovely chair, bad casters

By 

from Central California

Love the chair. It's very comfortble and the fabric is lovely. The little casters broke within a month of purchase, however, and World Market does not carry replacements. I was unable to find any to match the size of the broken ones and finally had to buy raw wood legs to replace the whole front legs. I was able to stain the wood to match the back legs and screw them in place, so the finished product is actually better than the original. I would much rather have had real legs in the first place than the flimsy casters.
