    I have been in search of a high-quality office chair for several months now. After a few poor purchases, I finally ended up with this gem and couldn’t be happier. Here were my requirements:

    1. I wanted a high quality, but affordable chair. In the world of office chairs, you can pay $1k+ to get the super-quality chairs that you find in most corporate office buildings. Or, you can pay ~$100 for a super-cheap chair at Staples or Office Depot. Thus, began the search for the $200-500 chair that was quality but not cheap.

    2. Ideally, I wanted an “enclosed” chair that didn’t have openings in the armrests.

    3. I wanted a high quality leather chair; one that didn’t feel like a garbage bag. I, by no means, need real leather. I just didn’t want the material to crack and disintegrate after a year or two of use.

    4. I wanted a chair with a sturdy frame. I didn’t need one that would support 400 lbs., but rather one that didn’t wobble or feel like the armrests would pop off after 2 months of use. Basically, I wanted the chair to feel like it was one, solid piece of furniture. If you’ve used high quality chairs in corporate offices, you’ll know what I’m talking about here.

    5. I didn’t have any major requirements about ergonomics; I just wanted a chair that was comfortable.

    6. I wanted a contemporary look and feel.

    At only $275 (including shipping), this chair met all of the above requirements. This chair is very high quality. The leather is soft and matte. I trust that the leather will last much longer than the cheap stuff that the Staples chairs are made of. The chair comes [almost] fully assembled. I cannot speak to the material type of the frame, but the chair does not wobble and does not have any parts that feel loose. The chair-part assembly is entirely one piece, which is awesome (i.e. no assembly)!

    The chair is also very comfortable. The back is squishy but supportive. The headrest provides a lot of support. The lift and tilt functions operate as expected. The base of the chair is made out of REAL wood.

    I almost feel like this chair is priced incorrectly at $275. Overall, it feels far more quality than even the $200 chairs at Staples. I’ve been very skeptical about buying chairs online and have had several issues (in the past) with my search for the “perfect” office chair. I can definitely say that, if you have the same requirements as I, this is the best chair out there for you. Get it now before Amazon raises the price!

    Here are a few other things to note:

    * Shipping takes FOR.EV.ER (if you’re ordering from the Price Pros). This is not a prime item and it took about 2.5 weeks to arrive (from purchase to door).
    * Because it comes assembled, the box is huge. The box will not fit comfortably through a 36″ door.
    * Totally minor, but one of my casters makes a small noise when I move the chair.

    TL;DR – Great value for the price. High quality. Buy this if the picture matches your requirements for an office chair!

    This chair is available under many different manufacturers – same chair. So if you are shopping for a high-end looking office chair in black. This is a good choice. I particularly like the finish on the leather – it is a matte (not shiny) smooth and soft leather. For comfort – I rate this chair as one of the best I’ve ever used. This chair sits in my home office which is a library wall with a two-sided peninsula desk that has black leather inserts in the top. It’s perfect. However, I was worried about the size of this chair being too big as some chairs are – this is perfect for me and doesn’t look out of place. One more note about the size – if you are a “large” person (over 250) – this might not be the chair for you, but there are “big and tall” versions of office chairs that you should consider instead. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this chair to anyone looking for a classy, high-end look for their office.
