    just what I needed

          Customer comments about Oskar Armless Lounge Chair:

          I have hip pain and need to sit on a firm chair. This works just great, the only problem is that when I have visitors they all want to sit in such a cool looking chair and I have to ask them to sit somewhere else as it is "my" chair. I also knit and the wide seat is perfect for holding my ball of yarn next to me and no arms get in the way of my needles. I have had it for a year and continue to enjoy it.

            Customer comments about Oskar Armless Lounge Chair:

            The chair is just simply beautiful. I purchased the Oskar in the Solid Walnut color, which I think is a little more ashier in person than the online picture shows. I went to a R&B store to look at all the colors in person and thought the Solid Walnut worked best for my home. It's actually much bigger than I thought it would be, as well. I haven't had a lot of guests since I purchased it, but everyone who has been over has complimented me on it, both as to looks and comfort. If I move into a bigger place, I am going to get a second one so that I have a set.

              I bought 2 of these and have them in front of an open staircase. The open look of the chairs and the staircase are perfect. Plus, it's surprising how comfortable they are to sit in.

                This chair works with any style, but its main
                feature to me is the simplicity, beauty of the
                design and wood. I also look for products that
                are made in America, so another plus.

                      Customer comments about Oskar Armless Lounge Chair:

                      I thought this chair would look great in our living room. And it does! The scale of the chair is ideal, it has a sleek, low slung look. Its sturdy but light enough to easily move around if needed.

                      I'm 6' and my husband is 6'4". I was concerned about a comment (by a taller person) in a previous review about the chair hitting in an odd spot for them. But we like the "sit" of the chair.

                      Thumbs up!

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Delivery was on-time, friendly and they were careful with our new furniture/house.

                        People walking into my small living room immediately notice these beautiful chairs. Everyone wants to know where i got them and comments on the comfort. They are hard wood but still inviting to sit in. My cats can't mess them up. They are a little lower to the ground than a standard armchair. A teeny bit lower than the seats of my sectional so I was worried as to whether that would look weird, but it works great. They don't take up as much floor space as a standard armchair and allow the room to breathe.

                            Truth be told, this chair was my husbands choice. He fell in love with it at the showroom and pouted about it for days before I gave in. He still adores it. We both find it comfortable, he more than I do, but we are both under 5'9"... My family members who are significantly taller (6'+) say that it hits their backs badly. My personal opinion is that it looks too wide for average sized folks, but my husband likes that as part of the styling. I would have given this chair a 3 star rating and doubtless, my husband would say 5... So, I gave it a 4. I still wouldn't pick it, but a happy spouse is a good thing....

                                A:

                                Yes. Initially, our natural cherry products are lighter in color. It takes about 6 months or longer for the wood to patina. However once that happens, the cherry color will stop darkening.

                              If someone who had buttons on the back of their pants were to sit on one of these chairs, would there be a good chance of the chair being scratched/damaged by such buttons?

                                Yes. Any metal objects can definitely scratch the wood finish and mark the surface.
