My husband needed a new chair at his office so he asked me to come shopping with him. I like nothing better than to spend someone else's money so we headed to Office Depot with a flyer full of coupons he had received from them.

After looking at the line up of chairs available I started walking around the little cubicle sections set up with desks and chairs and found this little gem. The color was what grabbed me at first, a rich coppery color that stood out and said "hey, look at me!"

The price on the tag was $149.99 and it was on sale for $99.99. I called my hubby over and suggested he try it out. The tilt-lock mechanism wasn't locked in place and he almost landed on his back on the floor! After I stopped laughing and could keep a straight face I told him he needed to lock it and try again. The second time was much better. He liked the mesh back, the cushy leather seat, he twirled around and said he was getting it.

We found a salesman and he brought one out to us in a box. We headed off to the cashier and my husband handed the coupons to her and asked which one would be best to use. There was a $20.00 coupon off office furniture so she deducted that and then another 15% coupon which she let us use. We ended up only paying $68.42 for the chair which I thought was a fantastic deal.

**As I mentioned this chair did come in a box so assembly is required. The instructions were in English, French and Spanish, very well written and with pictures! There is also a pictured parts list in case you would need replacements or if a part was missing.

**The seat is mostly soft leather with mesh trim and the seat back is all mesh. My husband really liked this feature as he is one that will sweat at the drop of a hat so that was the first thing he picked up on.. We also like the mid-back height which is very comfortable and supportive.

**The arm rests are leather and have a very futuristic design. It almost reminds me of the "D" in some of the Disney merchandise. The chair pedestal has 5 legs on casters for moving quickly and smoothly from desk to file cabinet even without using a chair mat.

**There is a tilt lock mechanism for the back of the chair and a lever for height adjustment. The recommended use according to the brochure is moderate with a maximum use of 5 hours a day and lists a maximum weight capacity of 250 lbs. Since my husband only uses it a few hours at a time and weighs less than 250 lbs we hope this will last for many years.

So far he really likes the chair and says it is very comfortable, lightweight and even the copper color somehow goes really well with his desk. Office Depot also included a limited five year product warranty. Overall I think we got a great chair for a very good price and would recommend checking Office Depot if you are in need of office furniture.
