Rated 1 out of 5 by JenningsDoodle Very disappointed ~ weird "sagging" and dips
As a previous reviewer wrote about sags, I also have two chairs and an ottoman, and the weird sagging/dips in the cushions, arms is just odd. I don't know whether it is the foam (or whatever# is in the inside, but for the $1100+ I paid, I am returning it. I understand that these are NOT made by Bean #I vaguely remember after waiting 6 weeks for them to arrive that it came from a furniture factory in the Carolinas??#, but they say that they will take everything back...
Now the question is just how to get two chairs and an ottoman to a store! The plus is that the color #sage green) is just what I wanted and the lightweight was appreciated by my movers.

We have had this chair and ottoman for less than a year. They both show signs of extremely heavy use which is just not the case. The cushions sag in the chair and the arms look equally bad. The ottoman foam sags over the frame. The fabric itself is good quality but the foam underneath isn't holding up. The problem is the foam construction doesn't recover it's shape. Even the front of the arms of the chair have wrinkles. I should have stayed with something with a more conventional construction.

We bought two of these chairs and love them. They are clearly very well made and comfortable. They match our decor and fit us perfectly. I am short- 5'2" and comfortable chairs are hard to find. These not only fit me well but my husband and tall sons (6'1") as well! We love them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by kjjinme nice chair, wrong color
Be warned: I ordered sage green, what I got is really olive green. My third ultralight. New design - much larger, but only because the back cushion is so tall. Have had ultralights replaced in the past - they don't hold up (or at least the original design didn't). Hoping this one and the second one will stand the test of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by celeryheart Perfect!
This chair is much more impressive in person than online or in the catalog. We have the natural, and it fits into our home perfectly. It is lightweight, but sturdy with classic lines. Perfect for our century home; planning on purchasing the loveseat soon. For those who think it is too "hard", be patient. It softens with each use, and its firm cushions are a testament to how long the poly will last and hold up. We are very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PickySitter Great company and very nice furniture
I'm leaving a review because of their great service. Even though I returned this chair, my reasons were for personal preference and not because of any defect. The chair was lovely, solid, and very well made - in the USA (except for the feet). I just prefer a deeper seat and knew that I was never going to love this chair. LL Bean made the entire process of ordering, delivery and return as painless as possible, and their shipping company was very accommodating. I didn't have to be home for either delivery or pickup. I'd really like to see LL Bean either open some furniture showrooms or carry more furniture in their retail stores.

Rated 2 out of 5 by memeresue Extremely uncomfortable
As another reviewer stated, the chair looks good but is not comfortable at all. I returned the first chair as I thought it must have been defective. The second chair is the same. When you first sit down it seems to be okay but after a minute or two, you begin to slide forward leaving no support on your back. It's a little better if you have your feet up on the ottoman but it still gets uncomfortable after a short time and again you slide forward.
I think the construction of the chair needs some work to give more lower back support and eliminate the thrusting forward.
Very unhappy with the comfort factor but the chair looks nice. Would return but it is too much of a hassle for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gnvmom Ultralight Comfort Chair
I am completely please with the chair's color, comfort and size. It looks as if it has always been in my living room. The ottoman is solid enough to use as a seat in its own right. The delivery man was very helpful and pleasant, as was LLBean's telephone customer service. Kudos!

Rated 1 out of 5 by FurnishedByLLBean So Disappointed
I read all of the reviews about how comfortable this chair is supposed to be and I was so excitred when my two chairs arrived.
I love the color and I love how the chairs look.
But the chairs are not comfortable.
When the chairs arrived, everyone in the family was claiming them as their own. By the evening, no one wanted to sit in them.
I expected chairs that we could melt in to. I am so disappointed.
Any suggestions anyone on how to make them comfortable or how to sit in them so they will be comfortable?
I really do not want to send them back because that will be a great deal of work and I am not sure that the extra freight charges will be covered by LLBean.
I am so disappointed.
