Blue Box Somerset Leather Faced Office Chair : Office Chair leather faced

Well-made, sturdy office chair which feels as if it will give many years of service. Cream colour is almost bordering pale lemon, but looks nice. One thing to note is that if you are planning to purchase this chair to use without the arms as i did (so it can fit under your desk etc) this can not be done. The arms are used to connect the chair back to the rest of the frame, so must be fitted. Other than that, a very good buy.

This arrived the next day and went together with ease. However there were no instructions for using the tilt mechanism, and had to phone customer support who very kindly talked me through it as it was not obvious. You have to pull the lever out to the right, away from the seat, to tilt then push in, to secure in the upright position and this only worked at first by getting out of the chair, but works when sitting in it now.

Comfortable, well built if a little on the high side. . I bought this after my last desk chair fell apart, i chose this because i’ve found the weak points on these things tends to be around the arms which also act to hold the back on, the arms on this are metal. It arrived on time and was well packed, all the various bits and pieces were wrapped separately in the box. Assembly was quick and easy, it assembles in the same way as other chairs and the only hard part is pulling it together to get the last arm on, you might need a second person to help with this bit. The chair itself very comfortable, the seat isn’t as long as other chairs i’ve had but i didn’t have any real problems with it (i’m 6’1), in fact i found it made me sit properly and i’ve noticed i no longer get out of it like a 90 year old. The back is a good height, the bit that looks like a headrest fits between my shoulders and is comfortable, i would imagine it would support the neck of shorter people. The only problem i have with it is i can get it to go low enough to fit under my desk, this means it takes up more room that it should. That shouldn’t really put people off, i don’t have a measure handy but my desk is quite low. The cream leather is soft and cleans well with a damp soapy cloth. I bought this for the discounted price or 70ish quid, it’s well worth that, it isn’t worth the full £170+ though.

  • This chair is comfortable and looks good

This chair is comfortable and looks good. This chair is comfortable and looks good. I’d say it is well designed. The arm rests are padded and comfortable. I haven’t tried to fit it under a desk so can’t comment on the other reviews the only problem i have is that every now and then the seat drops down iincrementally, and unexpectedly. It seems to be something to do with adjusting the black thingy directly under the seat. I grab it and try to turn it and it seems to tighten up and stop the seat dropping for a while. I have to say it has had a great deal of use it the time i’ve had it.

This was a special promotion, wrong colour sent at first but replaced with correct colour no quibble. Easy to assemble but required washers to be inserted between castors and frame for the castors to swivel.
