A beautiful and comfortable modern styled drafting chair. The foot ring easily adjusts in height without tools. This chair has an unusually large seat height adjustment range.

Wonderful, exactly as described. Very sturdy and the colors are vibrant. There was a very short delay in shipping/fulfillment, which I don't doubt because I bet they are popular items.

I bought this for my craft room and it is perfect! I can adjust it to fit the sewing machine or raise it up to work at the craft bench.

Our new arm less drafting chairs can go at a regular height desk or bar stool height....they are very comfortable and easy to raise and lower. We love the graphite grey with white, the flex edge on top, back, and seat of chair. They looks so cool in our newly designed art/craft room. They are made so well and designed...well worth the money. They come in one piece and are very well packed with a variety of devices.

Great item for any sit/stand workstation

Arrives completely assembled!

from Oakland, CA on 05/05/2015 – Verified Buyer

I have purchased other Steelcase chairs and have never been disappointed - the same for the Cobi. Unlike other drafting chairs that I have tried, this chair has a wide range of seat heights that allow me to use the chair as a comfortable desk chair as well a drafting chair so I now have two chairs in one. It is an attractive, well-constructed chair that I would classify as a "medium" size chair. I appreciate the depth of the seat as it allows me to sit back and maintain better posture, even in the drafting position. It is not an inexpensive chair, but the quality is evident and makes the chair worth the cost. The quality extends to the casters - I ordered the standard casters, thinking that the difference would be negligible, but for a hard surface it would better to have the appropriate casters to keep from sliding across the room!
Rated 5 out of 5 stars.

Great product!

The selection of colors and finishes is great! It's super comfortable and the height flexibility is perfect for sit-to-stand configurations.
