Disappointingly shoddy "fix".

I ordered the Sam Rocking Chair. The delivery took 10 weeks. The chair is basically fine, but clearly they'd spotted a potential issue with metal rocker tracks on any hard flooring (wood, tile etc) so rather than fix properly, they'd attached some very low-quality foam tape that was just stuck on the rocking-track surface. This would have stayed intact for about ten minutes and then started to make a mess of my carpet. Removing it cleanly was a total nightmare (stanley knife & paint stripper did it, but took 30 mins of hard work). Now it's fine, but that was just a shoddy "fix" by whoever did it. Very shoddy. (Lucky not to get 2-stars).

Now the chair itself... It is what it is described as, so without the above issues I would not complain. The "PU Leather" is more commonly called "plastic", but I guess "brown plastic" is a bit too honest. It does look good. The "rock" motion has a very short "upright" arc, which is fair enough, but the designer should have designed the rocker tracks to make a longer "swing".

All in all, this is a tad on the expensive side for me to be able to recommend.

Very fast delivery, exactly the parts I wanted.

Bought a turntable lid, hinges and mat. Exactly the parts I wanted. Delivery was very fast. Packaging was great. Price was fair. Recommended.
