Blue Box Somerset Leather Faced Executive Office Chair : Comfortable and a good height

We ordered two for home use which arrived very quickly – excellent packaging – easily put together – look magnificent and are comfortable. Husband likes the ‘rocking’ action – says it helps him to think.- looks and feels good – easy to clean.

Comfortable – which is what i was looking for. Here are the specifications for the Blue Box Somerset Leather Faced Executive Office Chair:

  • Pronounced Headrest
  • Additional lumbar support
  • Contemporary chrome aremrests with complementing pads for comfort
  • Fully reclining tilt mechanism, adjustable for individual user comfort
  • Gas height adjustable

Good for the price, but you really need 2 people to put them together at any speed. We had a race to see how fast we could put them together (we ordered 6), and managed to hone it down to 20 minutes from closed box to sitting on the chair and whizzing down the office.

Comfortable and a good height. I wanted a chair to rise to over 55cm and so there were few possibilities. But the somerset seems well built and is very comfortable. As another reviewer commented the chair does rock slightly when in the locked position; it didn’t bother me but it might if you wanted a rock solid chair. Fairly easy to assemble; i found a drop of 3 in 1 oil on the threads of the bolts used to fix the chairs made assembly much easier.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Comfortable and a good height
  • didn’t expect much but
  • Back support worth the extra

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.

Derby DER300T1-BLK Der300T1-Blk Executive Soft Leather Faced and Air Mesh Fabric Chair 1160-1230X765X675 : Great all rounder.

Have now been using this chair since july, and it really is great. First off it’s priced right in the middle of the chairs i looked at. I paid £150 for it, which, for a solid chair that should last for years to come, it’s well worth. In terms of comfort, the chair feels solid. I am 6’2′ and have no issues getting under my desk. The back is pretty high, rising above my neckline. Pros – materials feel nice quality & durable. – aesthetically it looks good. – (non adjustable) lumbar support for lower back (helped with my back pain) – easy to assemble.

Have had many similar chairs over the years. Very comfortable & represents good value for money. Easily adjustable for: height 6′ 2′. Always a sweat to assemble this type of chair. Office needs delivered on a date of my choosing.

Leather will flake off after three years. . I was worried that this wouldn’t match the price tag, but i’m pleased to see it does. Suitably padded (including the armrests), easy to put together, and smooth rollers. My own downside is that even when the chair is fully compressed, it’s still too tall. It’s something i can live with but would be nice if it it went lower. As reference, my desk is roughly 85cm in height. Edit: having owned this chair for three years, i’m afraid i have to report bad things about it. I use it daily and unfortunately, the leather has started to flake off from around the head location and the torso area. I’m forever brushing up specs of leather and it will only get worse. If you’re fine with the chair only lasting three years, it’s a good purchase, but i consider £160 to be an investment that should last longer than that.

Fabric Operator seating : It’s plastic covered, not fabric

It’s plastic covered, not fabric. Ordered this because it got good reviews – one saying the fabric was good. The chair i received has a plastic covering. Meant to look like leather i think. So, although the chair seems sturdy enough and has good options for altering height & back positions, i’ve only given it a 3 because i really wanted a fabric chair. Not convinced the plastic will wear well. Plus it’s already showing finger/hand marks. Price is good but it should’ve been fabric as described.

This is one of the most comfortable typist chair i have ever had and it moves around with great ease.

Chair appears to be fine – after problems experienced during the delivery process. Chair appears to be fine – after problems experienced during the delivery process.

  • Traditional style conference chair
  • Stylish and comfortable versatile stacking chair
  • Ideal for any multi seating purpose – training, conferences and lectures
  • Polyurethane moulded seat and back

Plenty of adjustment up and down and the backrest is perfect for lumber support. Does exactly what the advert says, plenty of adjustment up and down and the backrest is perfect for lumber support, very good cloth finish which really makes this chair comfortable, the adjustment on the backrest is open to almost full recline so cannot complain at all. Very easy to assemble, took all of 5 minutes, no screws or bolts to do up.
