Some thought you cant take your bed with you. That was until the Pillow chair was invented. Aside from being an obviously unique and modern piece, the chair is also supremely comfortable and effective. Like a day-long massage, the vinyl cushion rolls take care of your back at all positions. From the neck and shoulder to your lumbar regions, Pillow is there to help. The chair and padded arms are height adjustable, and the high seat back makes Pillow suitable for people of all heights. True to its name, the chair even tilts back to assist which those much needed power naps as well. Set Includes: One - Pillow Office Chair Dimensions:

There are a couple of issues with quality. One of the wheels was missing a ring that keeps it in place, so if you pick the chair up it will fall out. This is not usually a problem. I suppose I could find a ring to replace the missing one.
The other more troublesome problem was with the button that locks the arms in place when moving them up or down. One of them popped out so the arm would simply fall to its lowest level, and was unusable. Luckily I was able to fix it myself by putting in some spacers and replacing the screw that keeps the assembly together with a larger one.
Other than these two quality problems, it's a comfortable chair. Maybe not the most comfortable ever, but it does the job just fine.
Quick Edit: Wanted to clarify I took the castor out just now and the castor itself is fine, it was the plastic base that broke. The hole that holds the wheel is in pieces.
1. Looks nice. Obviously if you are considering this chair you like the way it looks.
2. The openings between each cushion make it very breathable. So even a fatty like me doesn't sit in a puddle of his own sweat all day.
3. About 50% of the chair is very solid feeling. The seat and cushions are nice, somewhat firm but comfy. The seat feels solid beneath the cushion. The back is even more so with the metal pipes. With it in lock position I feel comfortable leaning back on it. When it is not locked I do not lean all the way back though.
4. It is easy to put together. All the people saying they're missing things didn't check the chair itself. Some of the bolts come already attached.
1. I don't think it was meant to support someone as heavy as me. When I lean back without the lock I hear lots of creaks. On top of this one of the casters already broke off. (More below.)
2. The other 50% of the construction feels extremely cheap and NOT solid feeling.
2a. The base is plastic. It isn't weak feeling but the chair would be a lot nicer if it had been the same metal as the bars on the back.
2b. The casters are total junk. Like I said above, one already broke. Even over the weight limit I wouldn't expect this to happen so quickly. (They don't actually give a weight limit either so I don't know if I am or not. Just assuming it is probably in the 200s somewhere.) This is the main reason for the loss of 2 stars.
2c. The arm rests are also hard plastic and only bolt on under the seat. If you don't like armrests at all you can remove them no problems. Otherwise they are wobbly and weak feeling. I wouldn't be surprised if I snap one off anytime soon. Also being hard plastic, they're not really that comfy anyway (there is some kind of cushiony material over them but it may as well be more hard plastic...) I didn't actually let this one affect my rating too much. I usually don't use them and have thought about leaving them completely off and they are fine for what they are to me.
1. I haven't had any problems with the lift piston because I don't really use it. It feels solid enough but I keep the chair in the lowest position the entire time anyway. I've never had a chair piston go bad because of this and I do not expect this one to either.
2. No real lumbar support, but the upper back support is nice. The shape of the back initially feels pretty flat, but third from bottom cushion actually is closer to your back than the others. This could be very annoying if you are short enough that it rubs over your shoulder blades all the time, kind of forcing a slump. It sits just under mine which makes it pretty comfy for me. Though I do wish the second from the bottom also came out further for lumbar support.
Overall I still like the chair despite the broken castor and cheap feeling base. The style is perfect for my office and it sits nicely. I plan to replace the base completely now that the castor broke and I'll probably try to figure out a pillow or something for more lumbar support.
How they could have made it the perfect chair.
1. Use a solid metal for the base instead of the plastic and get stronger castors for it.
2. Make the 2nd from bottom cushion adjustable in and out. (This might be difficult but it would be awesome. Otherwise just pushing it in toward the back would be enough.)
3. Instead of a single plastic support from the seat to the arm rest use two that go a little in front of where it is and one that goes toward the back of the seat so it is sturdier. Also make the padding both look and feel more like the cushions on the back. And actually making the supports metal bars like the back would be great too.
I would have definitely paid more for these features.
