This chair is a comfortable swivel chair with a high back. My only criticism is that when putting together I noticed drilled holes underneath the seat which perhaps were meant initially to fix arms. However one of the holes had caused a small split in the wood. Although I do not see this having an effect on the durability of the product and hence did not wish to bother returning it since the split is at the edge of the seat underneath which is unlikely in my opinion to expand and none of the holes can be seen unless you turn the chair upside down, time will tell if I am wrong about the chair lasting. It does seems a strong product and so I think it will last despite the small split in the wood underneath.
