The Pro's of this chair is primarily that it looks nice. I purchased the charcoal and it is true to color. It's very pretty and it does look like a rather costly office chair (more so than the $125 I paid). The material looks/feels like a chenille. The tufted looks to be very securely done. The nail heads along the chair seat or strong and appear very secure. The chair material is tight and not loose. No loose threads. The base of the chair is strong. The wheels/casters appear to be good. The lever works appropriately and easy. The chair spends around smoothly. It is a very attractive chair. Only takes minutes to assemble. Now for the Con's. The near edge of the seat of this chair is hard and therefore is very uncomfortable to the back of my legs. I do remedy this by placing a cushion in the chair seat that is large enough to cover the front area. The chair back is at an angle in which I find myself hunching over my desk. In other words, my back will not rest at the back of the chair to work. It's almost like sitting on a hard stool with no back. The back is comfortable IF you lean your way back into the chair. If you are in search of a very attractive office chair and not concerned about comfort, this may be a great option for you. If you sit in an office chair for a minimal amount of time and don't mind placing a cushion in it, this chair may be an excellent choice for you. If you sit for long hours at your desk and seeking comfort, this is probably not the best choice for you. One more thing, I am 5 foot 7 and if you are a rather short person, you may find this chair is too tall for you. The lever does not bring the chair down very low...at least on mine it doesn't. My feet touch the floor just fine but not sure for someone 5 foot 3, for example. Me, I am going to move this chair to a desk I rarely use and I am going to move my old comfortable office chair back to my main desk.
