Bought this chair in black based on the reviews and description. It really looked good and I had high hopes for it. Well it came in fairly quickly and I was impressed as I was putting it together. BUT Once I started sitting in it I realized very quickly that it is a piece of plastic junk no better than anything you’d get from the cheapest knock off factory in China. First of all it squeaks horribly. Every pivot point creaks and groans with every move you make. I cannot imagine a whole office full of these things. People on the phone constantly ask me what the noise is. I keep trying to oil or grease it but it only helps a little for a short time. Second, the left arm is slightly lower than the right arm so the stops for the adjustments don’t line up. Third the head rest isn’t square to the back of the chair. It’s off slightly so that when your head is on it , it feels like your head is tilted Also the arm rests themselves are just bad. I mean really bad. This is hard to describe but they are sort of cupped on the top where your arm rests so that your arm is in a sort of trough. I can see how that might be appealing to a designer but the bad part is that the inner high part of the trough closest to your body is the high part so that when I put my arm down on the arm rest I literally slide right off it . I do this once or twice a day and it’s really quite jarring and not good for an “ergonomic” chair to say the least. The last thing I will say is that the cushion on the seat is way too thin. I don’t have a particularly bony rear end and I’m not overweight but I need to get up out of this chair frequently in the run of a day to relieve my aching tush. It’s really REALLY not good.
So , in closing, do yourselves a favour and run away from this chair as fast as you can. I paid just about $500 CA and feel like I’ve been ripped off badly. When I emailed the company about 2 weeks after getting it to complain, I was offered a $30 voucher. What the hell good is that?
Do not buy this chair. I warn you. You see nothing but 5 star reviews but I’m telling you, it is NOT a 5 star chair.
