John Lewis Milton Office Chair
Fantastic unless you actually want to sit on it...
As per the other reviews the fabric is nothing like in the picture: it is a much nicer woven pale grey fabric that looks almost like a wool mix (it's not). The only disappointing thing about the appearance of this chair is the metal 'handle' which is a rather bold shiny chrome-like finish and looks garish compared with the otherwise very contemporary look.
The chair is quick and easy to assemble.
It glides around on a hard floor very smoothly.
I have no concerns about the 'build quality'.
If I only ever wanted to look at this chair (rather than sit in it) I would have been delighted...
The major problem for me is comfort. I only weigh 8 stone or so but even so I feel crushed against the rock-hard seat. There is very little padding. If you had an average sized 'rear' (rather than my skinny one) this would feel like a very small chair to sit on. I don't work full-time at my desk, it's just a home-office, but I can't comfortably sit for long on this. Even worse the fabric doesn't allow your skin to breathe (even though it cleverly looks very natural) and so I overheat when sitting on it for any length of time. On fake 'leather' this would just result in clammy legs however on this absorbent fabric it results in a 'rear-shaped' subtle staining to the chair. It looks awful - akin to me having had an 'accident' whilst sitting on it.
Maybe I'm hotter than all of you (!) but, sadly, much as it looks lovely when new, I have to warn you off this product. I have tried to persist but will soon have to replace it with something made of better fabric and with more padding...

Easy to assemble, light to manoeuvre , simple , clean space saving design that gives support and height for desk work and fits under desk when not in use.
Good value for money.

The first one of these chairs I ordered came with a big lump in the seat. It was exchanged for a second one which had a dent in the seat fabric. Excellent service from John Lewis, as always, but disappointing quality on this item. It's a shame because it would be a lovely little chair if the seat quality was better.

Disappointed with the delivered chair. The chair seat has a dent in it and the fabric has not been fitted properly. Poor quality for the price.

Good, but not as described
This is a good chair, well priced, but as other reviewers have said, it is not the fabric or colour shown, it is a light grey woven fabric. Arrived promptly, easy to assemble.
