Great chair for the priceWe like the chair for the following reasons: The arms are wood and the seat and back are leather. It is attractive and sturdy. It rolls easy on the plush carpet and it tips back. The only thing that would make it better is if the arms sloped down more so it would fit in the opening under the desk top. But that is not a deal killer.

Attractive, solid chairI ordered this desk chair for a client to go with her new white washed desk. The look is consistent with the description. The chair feels solid and well made and it adjusts and swivels smoothly. The feature that allows it to rock back and forth is not really practical because it goes back with a jolt and you feel as if you are going to tip over backwards. We just changed the tilt position lever to disengage the tilt feature and my client is happy with it. She is vertically challenged, ok short, and has the seat at the lowest setting which is perfect for her. I raised the seat and was also comfortable for my 5'10" height. Overall, this chair is a winner!

Overall, very nice!Overall, I'm pleased with the chair and decided to keep it. It is a beautiful chair and nice quality. I've looked for a long time to find a desk chair that was a little different.
Here are the reasons I give it 4 instead of 5 stars:
I ordered the white-wash with camel leather, and the camel leather color is much darker than the photo, more brown than creamy tan.
The chair is bigger than I expected and doesn't fit completely under the desk. The seat is so deep I put a pillow behind my back...my husband needs this, too, so it is really deep and doesn't offer the back support of a typical task chair.

Kingston Desk Chair - Buy it for the look, not comfortRecently purchased the Kingston Desk Chair in white for my home office. I was very happy with the overall look of the chair - the color and aging is natural and rich looking - much better in person than it shows online.
As for comfort, the chair is slightly wobbly from left to right and you can definitely feel the board in the center of the seat.
Overall, I like it, but it could be improved for comfort.

Good looking, not good seatingI've re-checked so many times that this was installed properly but the movement is clunky when one tips forward or back. Side to side however is the worst.
My husband rebuilt our last house from the studs and says there's nothing to be done about this chair. We had a cheapo ugly chair before, and I wouldn't have bought this if I'd tried it in a store first.

Not worth the $$$Put chair together and seat was crooked. Had to go out and buy extra washers to get chair to sit level. Not worth the $$$.

This chair is absolutely not worth the money.I've never reviewed a product before but this chair is so bad I felt compelled to warn others. We spent $600 on this piece of furniture approx. 1 year ago. I work from home so wanted something that would be functional, comfortable, and look great. The chair is horrible. The wood on the arms is so soft that every time it touches the desk it dents. The arms already look like they are 20 years old. The chair does not align properly and is completely crooked. We had it looked at by two professional repair companies and both said the chair was misaligned, poorly made and could not be fixed. It tilts improperly and isn't balanced. We are now stuck with an expensive piece of furniture that looks horrible and is extremely uncomfortable. I would not recommend this furniture at all.
