    Customer comments about Shay Swivel Glider:

    We have twins and this chair has worked great for us. It glides and swivels very smoothly and is wide enough to comfortably hold mama and babies during feedings and book reading. The design is very sharp and doesn't look too much like nursery furniture--will easily move to another spot in the house when it is no longer needed by babies.

    The twins are now 1-year-old and we've noticed no creaking problems and despite a lot of spills and spit-up the chair still looks brand new. Can't believe how well this fabric is holding up after so much use! This chair is by far our favorite piece of furniture in the nursery.

    Customer comments about Shay Swivel Glider:

    I've had this retro swivel glider with the matching ottoman for 14 months. I bought this online without seeing it in a store (big mistake, I guess!) It was a bit of a splurge item for me and I justified the purchase thinking I'd use it while nursing my son or eventually put it in his nursery or the living room. Big no.

    While the teal set is inarguably beautiful, it's simply not practical for me.

    1 - Not actually that comfortable. You need lots of pillows if you're considering nursing in this chair. But heck, I don't even sit in this chair to read or relax. The gliding movement is wonderful and relaxing, of course, but the structure of the chair isn't comfortable.

    2 - Be careful what you put on it. We just moved and I put a wicker laundry basket on the ottoman for a few days. I have a feeling we'll be seeing the impressions on the fabric for a long time.

    3 - So far we've had no spills but I can't imagine what product you'd use that wouldn't damage the fabric.

    Please check it out in person first and at least sit on it!

    Disappointed in the quality

        Customer comments about Shay Swivel Glider:

        We purchased the Shay Glider for our Nursery and loved the chair when we tried it in the showroom, but when we got the chair home and unwrapped it the glider was not smooth at all. There was also a loud creak to it.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I put a call into customer service at the store and did not hear back so called again the next day. I did hear back, but then tried to schedule a time for a technician to look at the chair and he was booked out two week for a Saturday appointment and one week for a week day apointment. I am hoping the chair gets fixed the first time. I am very disappointed in the quality of the chair and the service I received.

          Customer comments about Shay 28x22" Glider Ottoman:

          The ottoman broke three weeks after purchase; the gliding top disconnected from the base that sits on the floor, and half the ottoman collapsed upon itself. But we know that Room and Board stands behind its product, right? Well, no. When I called customer service, their recommendation was that I pull out the tool set and repair the thing myself.

          So I did that. I think. The ottoman now makes an unfortunate creaking sound, and I can't really say whether I repaired it in a manner that will be reliable or not. But I can say that R&B really didn't handle the problem appropriately.

            Customer comments about Shay Swivel Glider:

            The chair is not as comfortable as I had hoped; I had read every review before purchasing, specifically paying attention to all the customers who bought it for their nursery, and I am disappointed no one said anything about how hard it is. Although it's sturdy and great design, you can't really picture falling asleep in this glider while rocking your newborn. You can't rest your head back at all, and it is really low to the ground, making it difficult to get in and out of while holding a baby, and it's just not soft and cozy at all. In the end, I will keep it because it works, but I'm hoping it will break in over time. Also, the desmond grey color is a little cooler in person, almost light blue.

              We ordered two of these chairs online. They are very comfortable and great for what we wanted. Better than that, the customer service is outstanding. They called to schedule delivery; then called the day before to confirm and give us a two hour window; then actually made the window! We had a question about the fabric on the arms; Lisa took our call immediately, we sent photos, she got back to us the same day. It turns out there was nothing wrong, just the fabric was pushed down from the wrapping job and it's fine now. But, she would have been glad to pick them up and replace them. Very good customer service.

                Great customer service--was notified of my delivery date and time well ahead of time. The delivery crew was on time and called to verify the delivery the night before.

                  Customer comments about Shay Swivel Glider:

                  My husband and I searched all over for a modern looking rocking chair/glider for our nursery and kept coming back to the Shay Swivel Glider. The design was simple and the colors had just enough pop (we ended up choosing the teal). The price was also very reasonable compared to other modern, well-made gliders on the market (actually the least expensive after considering delivery fees).
                  We were not able to physically sit in the chair before we bought it, but are very happy with the dimensions, design, comfort and feel of fabric. The chair is supportive and will hopefully be great for nursing (I don't know if I would want to sleep in the chair - a little too supportive for that). I am 5'8" and my husband is 6'2" - we both find the chair comfortably, although he cannot rest his head back.
                  The fabric is soft and hopefully we clean up well (baby hasn't arrived so don't have any spills yet).
                  Overall, I am happy with the chair and can't wait to glide with baby in a few weeks.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Delivery was made at the beginning of the two hour time frame. Product was in good condition. Customer service was great about returning e-mails and checking in on us to make sure we got the shipment.

                  We like this chair so much we bought two. They about swivel and glide me to sleep as soon as I sit down. I think most people get them for babies' rooms but we have them in a sort of a lounge set up by our fireplace. We have a big open space where our kitchen, living, dining and TV areas are connected. The chairs are easily repositioned to face the TV, the fire, the kitchen to visit with the chef, or the window overlooking the park. They are very comfortable and they look great too. I think they look and feel better with pillows at the back. My husband is tall and doesn't need them but I usually prefer having them. I ordered some custom 21" square box pillows for each and a 13x20 knife edge for my lower back (in different colors). They look and feel great.

                    I love everything about this chair, and it is working perfectly in our nursery. What's best is the fact that its design is just as attractive as it is comfortable, and I plan to move it to another room of the house when our daughter gets a bit older. I know from experience with other R&B purchases that it will be durable enough to last for many years, so we'll have this piece for a long time.

                    The only con about this purchase was the waiting time. We ordered our chair in the teal colored stock fabric, and we were under the impression that it would be readily available, but there was almost a one month wait.

                        The Desmond fabric that we stock the Shay in would be a great choice. It is extremely durable and easy to clean.

                      Q:

                      Hi there. My wife and I are looking for a rocker that has low or no VOCs. We noticed that your mattresses are made with non-toxic materials so I'm wondering about the Shay Swivel Glider in the Vance fabric. Thanks in advance!

                        Our upholstery does not contain PBDE’s or chlorinated tris. These 2 chemicals have recently been in the news, due to the fact they are chemicals that had been used in foam that release in the form of dust that could be ingested or inhaled.

                        Our upholstered does use flame retardant chemicals to meet California’s TB-177 requirement, which mandates that all upholstery sold in CA must be able to resist a small open flame for 12 seconds. We, like the vast majority of furniture retailers, use flame retardant chemicals in our upholstery to meet this requirement.

                        We work to understand the raw materials used in products and try to provide the safest product to our customers while strictly adhere to government guidelines for product safety. As regulations change we adjust our products promptly.
