Elegant, stylish, very comfortable, I completely recommended it !!!
I've not had a suede/felt style chair or couch before, my seating choices have tended to be fairly utilitarian in nature with price/. I spent a long time going through the available options and decided on this chair partly for the base as well as the particular shade of green of the velvet finish - about which I have been very pleased! The green isn't too light and garish, and it's not too dark either. It could be a tiny bit darker but maybe then it wouldn't complement the color of the brass legs quite so well. I love the combination of textures (soft+fluffy with hard+smooth), as well as the complementary colors and the contrasting materials. It's as nice to look at as it is to sit in.
The seat padding is just right for me (thin, and quite light at 140lbs) and it wouldn't suite someone who is wider in the hips - it's only about 17" wide across the base at the widest part (the front). That said, I find it extremely comfortable and regularly spend most of 12hrs per day sat in it without feeling a need to get up and move around (I go and make lunch, use the bathroom, etc. but not because I 'need' to get up)
I am extremely happy with my purchase, and while I paid a little more than I was initially looking to, I think the chair represents good value for the price I paid and has exceeded both my aesthetic and qualitative expectations.
