Fantastically Comfortable but ...

Gary from Highland Falls, NY– Verified Buyer

I'm sitting in the Thatsit Balans Side Chair as I write this review. My friend and I assembled it a few hours ago and I'm just getting used to it. Now that I've adjusted the chair's settings more or less to my liking, I find it to be fantastically comfortable. I think I could sit in it all day! One thing noted as a selling point for the chair is that you can breathe easier, and that can help with alertness when sitting at the computer for long periods of time. This is definitely true, as the chair's contours force me to sit up straight, and the difference between how I sit in this chair compared to a conventional chair is noticeable. I'm very comfortable and relaxed as I write.

So, why do I only give the chair four stars? The chair is very expensive and because of that I feel that I deserved to receive better, clearer, and larger assembly instructions. I fault the designer and manufacturer for failing to think about this from the customer's perspective. The directions were very small and inadequate. My friend and I struggled to interpret what was shown in the small pictures presented on the two pages of directions For a chair this pricey, the company should do more to improve the instructions they supply.

With that criticism being offered, I'll close with this: If you want a great chair, this is it!

About the Manufacturer

Variér became its own company in 2006, when the Movement by Stokke collection of seating was separated from the juvenile collection of strollers, cribs and high chairs currently manufactured by Stokke. Since that time Varier has undertaken a fantastic journey. Varier is proud to continue offering the same outstanding iconic designs, quality and sustainable materials, while introducing fresh innovative designs paired with the latest fabric choices from popular vendors such as Kvadrat and Gabriel. Varier continues to grow its presence globally; today you can purchase the award winning seating collection in 36 different countries across the world. Varier’s success is embodied in a philosophy which they calls: A Human Idea. This is the concept of merging the knowledge of what is good for the human body (ergonomics), functionally and design.
