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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DianaInFlorence Win-Win-Win
I'm impressed with the LL Bean Ultralight Comfort Chair; it truly is both comfortable and lightweight. Add sturdy to that and we have a winner!
This is a chair to snuggle in while watching TV or reading; there's even room for the dog!
And I like that I can easily move the chair myself to clean, even though cleaning is not my favorite thing.
The fabric is soft and pleasant to the touch, so we have win-win-win.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VBandridingmom Wonderful chair!
Well...I did get the chair for me. Except each time I'd like to enjoy it, either my husband or one of our girls is already in it. Sigh... Am going to buy another just for me! (that's the plan, at least)

These chairs are the very best. Sage green was exactly as I pictured it.Big comfortable and just right to snuggle in with a good book and a glass of wine. I bought the matching ottoman too. Made my living room complete. You will not regret buying these pieces !!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by hohocleveland Favorite Chair Ever!!
It's no exaggeration to say I waited several years to buy living room furniture. Wanted the ultralight sofa, chair and ottoman but waited until some reviews were in after LLBean introduced its new, improved version. I could not be happier.
This is a substantial chair - its wide cushion and big rounded arms make it roomy enough to curl up in. My cat fits nicely to my side when I sit in it. With the matching ottoman, it's a great place to stretch out and nap.
I ordered Burgundy and am very pleased with the fabric and color - just muted enough so it doesn't stand out too much. Thanks to the free color swatches LL Bean sent, no problem choosing the best color for my room.
If you have well-behaved cats as I do (2 of them), don't hesitate to order this fabric. Mine haven't scratched at the chair, perhaps because I keep a scratch pole nearby. They do, however, nap in it all the time. So far I've found it very easy to remove cat hairs - they brush off easily. Some fabrics seem to grab hold of fur but not so with this hobnail fabric.
Really convenient to be able to order online and have delivery to my home (about 4 weeks from date of purchase).
So pleased with this chair - will post again if I find any deficiencies to report, but I doubt that will happen. Just ordered the matching sofa today.
