Rated 4 out of 5 by Obbieuth Solid Chair Low Back
I don't want this review to sound negative because this is a great chair. Its very solidly built, takes very little time to put together (though two people doing it is a must) and it looks fantastic once its done. My one problem with the chair is that its back is about one hand length too short. If you are hoping to be able to recline in this and rest your head on it, you are going to be sitting in some funny positions to accomplish that. The back is simply too short. I'd have given this six starts for another 5 or 6 inches of cushion in the back. As it stands, I'm probably going to try to figure out how to reupholster a cushion that is longer to suit this need.
It is a solid build, great wood, and looks fantastic, but it leaves something to be desired in terms of head support. Oh one other bit. They quoted me 13 weeks as a shipment date on this, and it arrived in 6 weeks. I'm not sure if that is standard, but it was a nice surprise.

Bought the Morris Chair for my husband. Not too hard to assemble. Really a beautiful piece of furniture. When he sat down on it, however, his bottom hit bottom. The cushion was really insubstantial. Now, my husband is a large man but not gargantuan, but I thought, maybe I won't have that problem. But sitting on it is like sitting on a board. Since then we have bought more foam cushions and upholstery fabric (sitting on two cushions is squishy), and are experimenting. So far it is a beautiful but useless piece of furniture. I'm really surprised that nobody else reviewed in this way. Could we just have gotten unusually inferior cushion material by mistake? Any suggestions?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oarsman5 Excellent Craftsmanship
We ordered this Morris chair and ottoman with burgundy cushions for our summer home and are totally satisfied with the product. It is very well made with excellent quality wood, flawless finish and solid craftsmanship. The design fits perfectly with the mission style of our lake house. Moreover it's the most comfortable piece of furniture in the house! It was easily assembled with a power drill -- using a hand screw-driver may have been a challenge.

Comfy chair. Leather cushions are a bit lop-sided. Needs a bit more attention to this detail.

Rated 4 out of 5 by appalachiangirl Leather Cushion Morris Chair
We have enjoyed having the Morris chair (and ottoman) for several years now. It is sturdy and very well made. It's a comfortable design that will never go out of style! If I could improve any aspect of the chair, I would make the seat cushion a bit thicker. Seems just a little skimpy thin to me, considering the price of the chair. That's why I only gave it 4 stars. Otherwise, you won't be disappointed! My son in law, whenever he comes to visit, asks me if I'm ready to get rid of the chair yet. He wants it! But he'll have to wait awhile longer!

I bought this, with the ottoman, to go in my library. Some previous reviewers had issues with missing parts or difficulty assembling it. I had none of those problems.
I found assembly to be easy enough. However, I had to use my power drill with a phillip's head bit to get the screws completely seated. No way could I have gotten them tight enough by hand.
That done, it's a really solid piece of furniture in a classic style that my cats immediately claimed as a favorite place to curl up and snooze. I love relaxing in it to read a book. It's a lot more comfy than it looks.

Chair was packed well. Assembly was easy with everything lined up perfectly. The seat and back cushions however will not stay in place. when sitting the seat cushion slowly slides toward the ottoman so you have to reposition both cushions for the chair to look good. Some double sided tape has fixed this issue.
The chair is very comfortable and I have gotten several compliments on the design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DianaInFlorence A good buy....
The Morris Chair with Goldenrod Chenille Cushion arrived yesterday and my husband is putting the finishing touches on it as I write. All the pieces came and were in good condition.
The one exception is the cushion. The bottom cushion was packed so tightly in the box that it's indented in two long marks (mirroring the wood it was pressed against) and the nap showed this indentation yesterday. Time has passed and I've used a small soft brush on it and things are looking better.
My husband found the chair and ottoman easy to assemble, although the multiple screws required quite a bit of force to attach snugly.
The chair is both comfortable and lovely; the light oak matches the Bean Mission bookcases and tables in our greatroom.

I just assembled this chair tonight and have been sitting reading in it happily. It's a very handsome, comfortable, supportive, and functional chair that lifts my spirits. It wasn't hard to put together, and there were no missing or broken parts as a couple of recent reviews have complained, so perhaps the problems have been eliminated?

I ordered this chair several weeks ago and it arrived with the left side askew. Very shoddy construction. I called LL Bean and they sent me a replacement left side.
This side was worse than the first! The pieces were barely connected and falling apart.
It's hard to believe that someone who cared anything about quality actually put this in a box for shipment to a customer.
This is a far cry from the LL Bean I used to know. Maybe I should have paid attention to some of the recent reviews on this chair.
Waiting on a third left side...
