Eliza Tinsley High Back Executive Armchair in Cream Leather : Smart chair, looks the part, expected more though.

Some really good things about this chair and no real negatives. . Best things about this chair are:it has a good lumbar support ‘bulge’ near the bottom of the seatback and is a good firm back shape. The colour is really good, especially if you like a light coloured office, in real life i would say it looks abit nicer than the photos on the website. It’s very sturdy and solid compared to some other ‘executive’ chairs which i’ve seen which are abit flimsy in comparison. The tilting mechanism is great so you can really swing back with abandon. No real negatives although it isn’t cheap and depends how important the above strengths are to you.

This chair is great, very easy to assemble and very comfortable to use. It is fully adjustable and has easy to move wheels which can be stabilised with the brakes.

Our computer desk is in our lounge so the style and colour fits in very well unlike the usual black or blue office style chairs which stand out like a sore thumb. Ours came with cream leather pads for the arms which are not shown in the picture. Here are the specifications for the Eliza Tinsley High Back Executive Armchair in Cream 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 oak arms and base for comfort and stabililty

The chair was easy to put together and looks very stylish in my makeshift office at home. Looks far more expensive that it cost. Will provide an updated review after 6 months or so, to confirm whether the gas cylinder still works to raise and lower the chair.

The first chair we received had a fault in that the gas lift did not keep the chair at the correct height so the chair constantly dropped to its lowest level. To give amazon their dues they managed to get a new chair to me by 08. 00 on christmas eve, and i had only reported the issue to them on 23 december. The manufacturer did not even have the courtesy to reply to my query on the gas lift or how to dismantle the old chair which we had to return to amazon in two packages, partly assembled. The new chair seems to be functioning ok, looks very stylish in our study, and it also has the leather arm protecters as the first reviewer states. I am only giving it a 3 due to the first one being defective. Hopefully the new one will keep functioning.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Large, comfortable chair with tilt
  • Some really good things about this chair and no real negatives.
  • Smart chair, looks the part, expected more though.

Smart chair, looks the part, expected more though. . Lacking a bit of seat padding and i generally didn’t find it very comfortable, so my wife now uses it for work. Build quality wasn’t that great, as it wobbles a little from side to side and leans slightly but noticeably to the left by a few degrees. Feels more like an ornement in the office than a functional office chair, considering the price we’d hoped for better.

This chair is incredibly comfortable, even if (like me) you work from home and spend eight hours a day sitting in it. It looks great and was easy to put together, although you might need a second pair of hands to attach the chair to the base. All in all i’m very happy with it.

  1. This review is from : Eliza Tinsley High Back Executive Armchair in Cream Leather with Oak Effect Arms and Base

    Large, comfortable chair with tilt. Despite being only a couple of centimetres wider and taller than my previous chair, this is a more imposing piece of furniture than i expected. It tends to dominate the small room in which i use it. It is, however, fairly comfortable for a desk chair. I can use it for hours without fatigue. The padding in the back and seat is generous and has some substance to it – though unfortunately not quite enough to prevent me feeling the base of the seat when i’m using it. You can, of course, throw an extra cushion on it to improve the comfort. The covering material is “leather faced”, which presumably means pu leather (leather bonded to plastic). It looks and feels like soft cream leather but may not be as long-lasting. There are also zip-on covers for the arms, not shown in amazon’s picture, which are made of the same material and have a thin layer of foam padding.

    1. Quality is unbelievable for £80 and the chair looks stunning not to mention its very comfortable too.

    This chair took 3 weeks to arrive (which amazon informed me about) but was worth the wait. It arrived well packaged in a huge box. It was really easy to put together needing no extra tools (allen key provided) other than scissors to undo packaging and could largely be done by one person alone except for positioning the chair on its stand where another’s help made life easier. The chair is very comfortable, has a great high back (most cream leather chairs on sale on the internet do not so beware), wheels easily on carpet and fits neatly under my desk. It feels stable and sturdy to sit in so far but only time will tell how it stands up to wear, i bought mine for my home office so it won’t see the abuse it would get in a commercial environment. The leather front and fake leather (but good colour match) back is a lovely cream colour and the oak frame, whilst clearly not the best quality wood, is not as fake as i feared it might be and blends well into a room full of oak furniture. The very competitive amazon price also helped to make this a very satisfactory purchase and enabled me to get rid of my uglier, less comfortable but more expensive black chair.

    1. Easy to put together, a little confusing with which bolts to use, but no big deal. The chair looks very smart in the home, close to beech bookcases and desk.
