Argos Leather Effect Managers Chair
Advantages: Good and solid
Disadvantages: Weak arms
Argos is a catalogue company which tend to do items which can either be poor and expensive or cheap and pretty good. I have brought this chair in the last few months and I found it to begin with pretty tough to set up.
You are given a box with all the necessary items to attach together with instructions but I just found the entire process of actually putting it together tough. You do need more than one person as the actual connections are not even and accurate enough to fit into the slots they are aimed to be secured for.
Once the set up is done the seat is actually pretty hard. The leather is the sort which is comfortable but at times it feels as if it could be softer. The arms are made with the wood which looks very clean and crisp and they are very easy to sit back and rest your arms however if you apply to much pressure to the arms they tend to bend and you worry they might snap and cause damage to the rest of the chair.
The pressure you apply to the seat can be good as well because if you want to be high up in the chair you can do that and if you wish to be lower down the lever lets you do that as well so it does give you plenty of options.
You can lean back on the chair and have the pull system which can lock the position as well so it saves you going back and forth with the motions you sometimes do. The feet have got wheels which are pretty good and easy to attach. I found the seat comfortable and quite hard but it shows how much quality there is. The arms are perhaps the weak point as I feel they could easily come apart and I think the overall price that I paid which was £70 to be slightly over the top.
The colour works well with the chair as this is a chocolate brown colour which seems to work quite well with the colours of the arms.
Summary: Good chair
