Great chair really the only chair that I liked in my workspace a modern natural wood with grays and red theme.
This chair has lots of adjustments. Adjustable backrest pretty useless only comfortable place for it pretty much at the bottom by the cushion... the adjustability is awesome though. My chair didn't come with a stop for the forward and backward adjustable seat cushion position though. So everytime I push it around the carpet the seat cushion pops out of adjustment, really annoying... also about a week after getting this chair it was making aweful squeaking noises. Which I was able to fix with liberal application of liquid wrench to all joints... did not have proper lubrication of joints.
Seemed disappointing considering the cost of this chair. It should not be joseling around like a cheaply put together chair.
