Customer comments about Otis Swivel Chair:

I LOVE these chairs. I bought two of them and had them reupholstered in a custom fabric which made them look more elegant and not so "men's club" as the standard fabric. They're very comfortable and fun. Perfect scale for my room, which has a great view that I don't want to block. The chairs face away from the front door, so the fact that they swivel makes it nice, because whoever's sitting can whirl around to see the new arrival. This is a psychological plus.

The only thing I didn't like about them was the fact that the seat cushion tilted towards the back of the chair. When I had them reupholstered, I had the cushion adjusted to correct this.

They feel very solid and well built. The turning action is a little draggy, but I'm extremely happy overall.

bottom line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
