Eliza Tinsley High Back Executive Armchair in Brown Leather : Good looking chair

I bought this for my den/studio/study because whilst i want a supportive desk chair i don’t want something that looks like it belongs under david brent at wernam hogg. At the same time a glossy leather chesterfield captain’s chair whilst lush, would have looked grotesque in my small, organised space. This is just right – vintage colours and a classic, neutral design blend in well with my eclectic, mid-century aesthetic. The beautiful chocolate brown leather is soft and in good condition (one tiny scuff hidden by assembly) and is more a cadbury’s milk-chocolate brown than the mink/mushroom you see in the picture). The chrome stand is nicer than other models which have black plastic. Very sturdy (in fact surprisingly heavy) and the oak feet and handles are in solid, heavy, beautiful wood with a clear grain and very solid. Assembly was basic and took 1/2 an hour and only 1 pair of hands and the result is a very comfy, very supportive, really swish looking chair which spins freely and scoots around. Delivery took from friday pm purchase to the next wednesday afternoon which is not bad and it was on time, well-packaged and in good nick.

Nice piece of furniture overall. . Comfortable enough to sit in, leather facing is fine, back covering ok but that and the arm covering does look a bit cheap/pvc-ish. However, bought to look more like a nice piece of furniture as our office is in the living room, and the wooden base and arms (not so easy to get elsewhere) fit in with our existing wood furniture well. Fairly easy to put together, so no real issues and happy with it so far. Delivery was prompt and on time. Here are the specifications for the Eliza Tinsley High Back Executive Armchair in Brown Leather:

  • Soft feel leather faced upholstery
  • High backrest with pronounced lumbar support
  • Fully reclining tilt mechanism, adjustable for individual body weight and lockable in the upright seated position
  • Height adjustment mechanism
  • Stylish warm oak arms and base with chrome stem for comfort and stabililty

Great product let down by 2 flaws. Received this today after a very short delay – very impressed with delivery speed. The chair is very solid and of high quality, however there are two distinct problems that i have noticed. Firstly, the product seems slightly damaged on the sides and top of the chair which is rather annoying given the price. Additionally, one arm is absolutely impossible to attach correctly. After trying to figure out what is wrong, it appears that one of the slots for the screw on the left arm is slanted, making it impossible to insert the screw with the arm on. Really disappointed by these two points, however, as always, amazon is great with their customer service and are dispatching a replacement with an expected delivery date by the end of the week. Apart from these problems, the chair looks very good and will hopefully last a very long time. Also looks very comfortable and looking forward to receiving my replacement.

Easy to put together and comfortable. Just as described, easy to put together and comfortable.

Extremely comfortable chair. . But it was a bit of a bugger to put togethersome of the screws are very easy to get on the wrong thread. But have patience, and you’ll be pleased with the result, as i am.

  1. This chair was for use in our living room which also has an office area. It looks good as an office chair and also doesn’t look out of place in the living room. Slight problem with one of the arm covers but this was quickly sorted by amazon. Good options of seat height and back rest too.

    A couple of points to make about the chair and delivery which are slightly negative. The cardboard box in which it arrived was quite bashed and retaped poorly, which lead me to believe that i was getting someone elses return. The instructions for the carrier included ‘post through the letterbox if the custiomer is not present’ – i would like to have seen that. There were some cracks (where the screws fitted) on the underside of the feet. All that said, the chair is good and it is adjustable and very comfortable. I have marked it down due to the above but don’t be put off it is a decent product.
