These are beautiful chairs, nothing tacky, tastefully finished in black matte leather that is sensuous rather than sinister. I've long been a fan of good office furniture, especially with a deco chrome accent that raises the stakes on the current craze for mid-century modern. And I still love the look—even though I can't sit in them—which altogether makes me feel foolish, not fabulous. For one, they are very over-stuffed to stand up to heavy commercial use. The effect is that they feel like you're sitting on top of a giant kickball from gym class. For another, although head support is not expected from a low chair, these also angle about 30°, so that if you relax back you must crane your neck forward to see other people or watch TV. There you perch, upright like Miss Muffet, precarious like Humpty Dumpty. So I bought some throw pillows to put behind my shoulders and prop me forward. That works, but is a little more fussy than I planned for such elegant chairs. And when I get done pouting, I guess I'll admit other people will likely enjoy sprawling in the corner of the big padded arms, staring at their phones, so seeing doesn't matter.
