Q & As

Rated 3 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Uncomfortable I'm finding this chair extremely uncomfortable. I invested in a new office chair, hoping that it would help relieve my lower back pain, but it's actually made it worse. I guess you get what you pay for, and this chair is certainly not suitable for all-day use at the computer. It'll have to go back unfortunately. 09 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Only lasted 15 months Started as a good & relatively comfortable PC chair for light home use. Perhaps a little low as some other reviewers have commented. Unfortunately after 15 months of very light use by my 12.5 stone behind the height mechanism has failed. JL will not do anything about it so I have to buy a replacement. I know it is a fairly low cost item, but I expected it to last longer than this! Save your money & buy something of better quality 16 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Office chair for the home This chair is a brilliant office chair for the home. It was easy to assemble and is a perfect size for a home office. We were so pleased with it that we purchased 2 more so we each had one. 08 July 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too Low! This chair is too low for a normal desk height and that prevents accurate typing. Very disappointed not JL at all.. 02 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple and comfortable The chair came when expected, and the men kindly carried it upstairs. The assembly was unusually simple and didn't take me long. The user reports it comfortable, it's the right size for the space, and so far it's doing exactly what a good chair should. 29 November 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Office chair. Arrived promptly and was easily assembled in a short time, comfortable as described and adjustment works well for different users. Clean looking design with highly polished legs, all in all a good buy. 10 October 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Simple Study chair fairly basic chair which is comfortable so far. Arrived promptly, was straightforward to put together but holes and bolts on underside of seat not quite in alignment, took a bit of 'wiggling' to get threads started. In use fine but has low rise and fall compared to previous chair,may not suit long legged individuals. 14 August 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointing Just assembled the chair. The seat and backrest are firm, but provide adequate support. May not be very comfortable for extended use? Purchased for home office/bedroom, so simple lines and appearance influenced my choice. Wishing I had paid more for a better chair. My main concern is that seat height does not meet spec. Max height is 52 cm unloaded. I weigh 90kgs. Max seated height is 48/49cm, which is too low for my desk. Beware. 08 August 2012
