Eliza Tinsley High Back Leather Faced Executive Armchair : Ideal for the average height home user

Very adjustable, super comfortable, and leather face is a nice touch too. A great purchase and i totally recommend it – coming from a software developer who spends all days in her chair.

At first i was really pleased but after just a few weeks of use it makes the most godawful metallic creaking sound at the slightest shift of my weight. It’s so bad, loud and annoying i’ve gone back to using my old less comforable chair. Tried tightening all the bolts and wd40 to no avail. Do not recommend this chair. Edit: turns out it was a faulty gas lift piston which can be replaced with a few tools for about £10. Chair no longer makes any noise at all. I’ve upped my rating to reflect this isn’t a design flaw with the chair just a faulty component. Here are the specifications for the Eliza Tinsley High Back Leather Faced Executive Armchair:

  • Luxurious high back leather faced executive armchair
  • Synchronised mechanism for simultaneous adjustment of seat and backrest
  • Fully reclining tilt mechanism with tension control adjustable for individual body weight
  • Seat height adjustment
  • Co-ordinated stitching on back rest and seat

This product is very suitable for me, simple design and reasonable price, the product is very good. Very good product, especially in such a low price to buy it, i am very happy. Amazing product and fast service. Does exactly what it says and does it well i used it several days, no problem. A great product with high quality.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Just What I Want!
  • Excellent/ lasting investment
  • Strong and very comfortable.

Being of a slightly ‘bigger’ build i have been looking for a suitable chair at my pc desk. This suits me very well and give me good support.

Delivery a day late, tracking having stated it would arrive a day early via amazon logistics, but they did refund the shipping fee. The chair is very promising, solid, heavy, and well made. The leather face feels like it will last better than leatherette, and should be more pleasant in hot weather. The padding is thick and comfortable. Construction was straightforward, though the tilting base looked damaged initially. One corner had been bent down after painting. I concluded it had been bent deliberately so the base sat better on the seat base which isn’t quite symmetrical, and it doesn’t show from above. I have short lower legs, and found the lowest seat height a bit high, so i initially put the lower castor base on from my old chair. I decided to buy a footrest and put the new base back on, which means i’m a better height relative to my desk.

    The chair is great, i just wish the armrest were made of a stronger material.
    1. Strong and very comfortable. . Very comfortable, extremely robust (i’m 19 stone plus and it barely notices me). Tension control is useful, and the thing will rock or sit in whatever position you set it to – the control for that is a little clunky on mine, but it works perfectly well. Please be aware that this is not what i would call a high backed chair – i expect that term to mean that the back is head-high. This is shoulder high on me and i’m not huge, just under six foot, so i think of it more as a mid-back. However, that’s the only thing i can find to say against it after a few weeks of use. Highly recommended on that basis, but come back in a year.

    At this price point (£153 including delivery) this is an excellent, well built comfortable chair. Overall it stands at 44 inches high, 25 inches wide and approximately 26inches in depth, i have the seat at its highest setting at about 20inches. It is quite heavy, weighing 22 kg due to its sturdy build, and is quoted as supporting up to 25 stone user weight,which i’m sure it will. The leather front looks very smart, the back comes level with my shoulders (i am six foot tall and weigh fifteen stone) the swivel and tilt both work smoothly. It was delivered, very well packed in a sturdy box within four days and i found it very easy to assemble with some help from my wife. I hope and expect that it will give us a good few years service. Our “much used” chair is over three years old now.

    1. The product was well packed and delivery was extremely fast. It was easy to construct and a good idea to give spare bolts etc. It is not as high backed as i thought but this does not detract from the chair being comfortable and good looking.

    1. Ideal for the average height home user. The chair components were well protected when the carton arrived and the relative bolts etc. Were blister packed so that each size was separated from the others. No more guessing which one went where as i have found with other items of furniture.And there was a section of spares – just in case. The chair took about 20 minutes to assemble and i encountered no problems (i had read the other reviews first and picked up some tips). I have only one minor criticism in that the chair cannot be angled back enough to give full support along the back of my legs when sitting in the normal “working” position with my feet flat on the floor. As i am 5’10” i do not consider myself to be overly tall and this would, i have thought, have been a reasonable expectation. That aside, it is a very comfortable chair and ideal for the home user.

  5. This chair is very good but is not high back. Have no complaints about the construction, comfort and quality just the back description.

    Excellent/ lasting investment. Easy assembling and as per illustration. An empty room is ideal for unpacking and laying out listed items. Don’t use sharp implements to unpack. ) i held up back-rest against a wall with my knees and aligned screw-holes of seat and metal-plate on back-rest. Then, to screw on the heavy duty gas lift unit. Mount the seating onto the legs and screw on arm-rests last. Uncomplicated mechanism for tilting/raising/lowering seat. Robust, smooth and comfortable. I am confident its an excellent and long-lasting investment.
