I needed a new chair for my office because the old one was making my back hurt. I thought id give this one a shot....im sorry i did! The seat lacks cushioning and after less than a month of use, a metal piece is protruding from the seat and making it very uncomfortable to sit in. It offers little lumbar support and is very creaky. The arm rests have very little padding also and you can actually see the foam through the mesh.
I'm returning this chair and exchanging it for another, hopefully better, chair.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
