Eliza Tinsley 1611KATG/LBK Luxurious Leather Faced Gull Wing Executive Armchair : WAY TOO HIGH – NOT SO GOOD

I agree with previous comments. The chair arrived very badly packaged and was difficult to get through the door. We had to unpack it in the hall before putting it together at the desk. One person is unlikely to be able to construct the chair on their own, partly due to the weight of it. There was a deep mark in one of the arm rests where poor packaging had forced one of the wheels into the padding. This took over a week to disappear but didn’t damage the leather. However once the chair was in place the quality showed. It is very comfortable and supportive although not the easiest to move. The entire chair is well padded and feels quite luxurious.

I had been looking around for a comfortable fully reclinable chair for a while. I came across this and read the only review from ‘jay r’he gave this 5 stars which in my opinion is way to high a rating. Firstly the delivery was spot-on and arrived exactly as promised. But as jay r wrote thepackaging is extremely poor for a premium chair and dispite improvments being made the metalparts of the chair had marked the leather but over time these disappeared. I agree fully with ‘keitmort’ that this chair needs to go lower and even on the lowest settingit is way to high for my desk. I am having to take steps to raise up my deskonce the chair is locked in the reclined position it can be a little difficult to release backto the normal seating position. Having got all that off my chest the chair is comfortable but it has taught me a lesson neverto buy a chair online again, far better to try it out first. Here are the specifications for the Eliza Tinsley 1611KATG/LBK Luxurious Leather Faced Gull Wing Executive Armchair:

I recieved this chair a couple of days ago in a very large box, which was extremely difficult to take up two flights of stairs to my room. It was well packaged though, with any metal parts being encased in plastic wrap and cardboard, with alot of sellotape. However, it was more than worth it. The chair is, understandably, in several different parts which require some minor screwing together with an allen key – extremely simple to do, but you probably will need two people to assemble it. Two hands are simply not enough, as you have to really squash the parts together to line up the screw holes. Once screwed in however, the chair feels very sturdy and well built. The arms and back don’t even have a millimeter of wobble in them, and it is very comfortablei went for this chair above others because i particularly wanted the gull wings – other chairs (even more expensive ones) have very solid arms which just make your arms ache after a long session of sitting. Why not have padding for your arms.The arms on this chair are just as soft and comfortable as the rest of the chair, but still feels solid enough for your arms to have good purchase.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • An average Chair
  • WAY TOO HIGH – NOT SO GOOD
  • Comfortable chair

I’ve been using these gull wing chairs for a number of years now, however, over years of usage my current 2 chairs packed in. So seeing this identical looking chair i purchased it as it’s served me well in the past. I read the reviews about people saying that the seating is hard and the chair at it’s lowest setting is still very high. I thought nah that can’t be right because i’ve used this chair and the height is perfectly fine and adjustable to the right levels. However, with this new chair, that is not the case, because i’ve got the chair set to the lowest setting and it’s still very high as if the height is set to the highest. Luckily, the chair just about fits under my desk with merely a centre meter to spare. Also the cushioning is much harder, not as soft and comfortable as my previous chairs.

    1. Top of the range leather chair. I bought this chair after looking at many others before settling on this one. It is very comfortable, beautiful and built to a high standard. It has the option to tilt the backrest back and lock it in any position, something i couldn’t live without, seat height can also be adjusted and locked. I’m over 6′ feet tall and sitting down the backrest is taller than me, lol. Assembling the chair is easy although you will need one other person to help you. The only issue i have is with the packaging, its woefully inadequate for this chair, all the parts are pressed together in the box causing the leather to be badly damaged by the metal parts, i had to order an exchange because of this. Well amazon being amazon arranged for the chair to be collected and exchanged free of charge , and i didn’t even have to call amazon, they called me back and my call was handled by a very polite and helpful customer service guy. Anyway i am very happy with this chair and extremely happy with amazon. Amazon customer service: 5 stars.
