      Customer comments about Sandberg Chair:

      Except for the finish, I'm very happy with this chair. I realize that it is hand finished and made of wood, but there are several spots where the application of the finish mars the overall quality of the chair. It is difficult to photograph the problem areas because the finish is black.

      Comfortable minimalist chair

      By Tommygun

      from San Francisco, CA

      Style Mid-century modern, Modern/contemporary

      Pros

      • Comfortable sit
      • Great design

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Informal
        • Small spaces

        Customer comments about Sandberg Chair:

        We purchased this chair during the annual R&B sale after my wife and I were looking for secondary seating for our new (smallish) loft/apartment. We wanted something modern, comfortable, and not too 'bulky' since this chair would be placed in front of a window.

        We were originally looking at the Senna chair, but then thought it might block too much light, so we then moved onto the other all-wood designs. This chair was tied for the most comfortable all-wood design(along with the Eames 'molded plywood lounge chair'), and I liked that it offered low sleek arms. The chair is not made for long-term lounging and is uncomfortable after an hour or so of use, but a small back pillow increases comfort exponentially and doesn't look bad either. The walnut wood is truly beautiful and matches the feet on our Jasper sofa. A word of warning, the chair is unfinished, so you'll need to maintain it with wood conditioner 2-3 times per year. Cons are that the chair is low to the ground - but that's a function of the style as well.

        If you're looking for a modern all-wood chair that won't block a view and fits in nicely with all styles of furniture, look no further.

        nice chair

          Customer comments about Sandberg Chair:

          I purchased this chair to add extra seating in a very small family room. It is a nice solutions since it is airy. I can place it in front of built-ins in the corner of our room and it doesn't block the built-ins visually. It is also easy to move to another corner of the room if we want to watch tv. It is surprising comfortable and I often sit in it to knit since the arms are low and my elbows don't hit the arms when I knit. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that when an larger person sits in it the back gives or flexes a bit. I wish it was a bit more sturdy in the back.

          Customer comments about Sandberg Chair:

          I'll be very short: this chair is amazingly beautiful but super scratchable. If you sit with pajamas, fine, if you sit with jeans -like I did- the little rivets will scratch it bad!
          It's pretty comfortable for a all-in-wood chair, but not to be seated in it for hours.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Great service. R&B took it back.

              These chairs are superb! We bought them to create a small sitting area off to the side in a bigger room. They are definitely more comfortable than one might think. The best feature is that they can be easily moved to become part of the main seating area as needed - no heavy lifting!

                Customer comments about Sandberg Chair:

                We have this room in our living room where it goes really well with the adams media center and a couple of other maple/cherry pieces we've bought over the years. It's amazingly comfortable and at a good angle for reading. It was lower to the ground than I expected but that didn't matter once we got it in the room, it looked great. Well made, lovely cherry wood. Stands up well to 2 cats who like to experiment on new furniture with their claws.

                Service and delivery comments:

                R&B customer service is very knowledgeable and helpful. Delivery service is reliable.

                  I was unsure about purchasing a chair having only seen it online, but based on the great reviews, I decided to give it a shot. I was not disappointed. The angle of the seat makes it very comfortable to sit in for hours, and the craftsmanship is fabulous. I am glad that I made the purchase.

                    Very pleased with purchase; the chair is lightweight but sturdy, and really comfortable. It feels airy in our small living room. Beautiful wood, too. I have been a R&B customer for nearly 15 years, and have been pleased with every purchase. (First purchase was a couch that is still going strong!)
