Rated 5 out of 5 by Shed4Ever Pukka Purchase
I saw this chair in Asda the other day. I was in desperate need of one. I Looked around in different stores and one the same as this was probable a good £60. Then I saw it on special offer and said to myself 'That's the one'. It is an excellent chair. Lovely and comfy, just the right size. the assembly instructions were very good. It only took me a few mins to set it up. For a leather chair, comfy, adjustable and perfect size you couldn't grumble at paying £29. Anything like this in Staples would probably be about £69.99. I would recommend this chair to anyone who is looking for a comfy, leather, good price chair. An awesome purchase. I am really pleased. I will be sitting in it for ages now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lukasc Average Chair
I bought this chair to replace a similar chair that was showing its age. Assembly was pretty straightforward and oblivious and went mostly without problems - except for the very last part.
Upon putting the castors on the base, i noticed one of the slots was damaged (from factory) and did not hold the castor in properly. I couldn't be bothered to dis-assemble the chair and return it so i've superglued the wheel in place for now, though how long it will last i don't know. I was also disappointed to learn the chair DOESN'T RECLINE. If i'd have known this i might not have purchased the chair. But again i do not want the hassle of dis-assembling the chair and having to return it so ill live with it for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by klaxongirl Executive Chair
After looking for a new chair for my home office for a couple of weeks, I had almost given up. The ones I had tried were expensive and uncomfortable so when I came across this chair online and with £6 off, I thought I'd give it a try. I opted for the chair to be delivered to my local Asda for pick-up and I was impressed when I receieved a text the day after placing my order telling me that it was already available for collection. It took approximately 15 minutes for me to assemble the chair using the simple instructions. The chair feels sturdy and is definitely value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WeirdScientist Excellent purchase
Exactly what was promised. A comfortable desk chair. Took me 15 minutes to put together. It is worth noting that when putting these kind of chairs together, leave the bolts quite loose on the sides until the back is in place, then tighten.
I didn't have a problem with this, but only because I have been through it before with other similar types of chair.
Other people have said that the chair is too narrow. I didn't find this at all. I am a 15 stone bloke, so not on the petite side, however this chair has plenty of width for me.
Very comfortable. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Girlintheoffice Value and Comfort all in one!
My sister kitted her house with Asda products as she was doing it on a tight budget. We were sceptical about such a cheap office chair but 2 years on and it is still in perfect condition.
As I work in an office with full of men, the chairs are all much too big for me and didn't provide any support. This chair is the perfect size for me (5 foot 4) so now I can fit in under and tight to the desk with my back straight and supported.
It was easy to build and made for a good team building exercise at lunch time!
One thing - not suitable for big men - especially if you want to look big and powerful. My chair has been nicknamed Goldilocks' baby chair!
It has been such a novelty leaving the office without a sore back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by greatbudgetgreatchair Great value for money
I bought this chair to go with my new desk and I only had a small budget. It was quite easy to assemble, week 3 now of using it, so far so good. I use it for studying only and I find it is very comfortable, the back is not adjustable but I find a little cushion helps. The seat is very soft and I think it is very good value for money. It is a little wobbly but as long as you do not use it for anything other than sitting on, you should be fine! Also if you are tall and need proper back support than maybe invest in higher back support but I am 5ft 2in so no problems for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bigruss Nice chair for the money But.......
If you are a person on the large side like myself steer clear of this chair as the dimensions given on the spec sheet have no relationship to the seat width they are the overall width including the arm rests, this makes a considerable difference to the seat width it's about 10cm smaller than what you would think in my opinion it would make much more sense to give the actual seat dimensions.
Having said all that if you are of average size this chair is very good value for money at £29 and my son and daughter in law are now the recipients of a brand new computer chair

Rated 4 out of 5 by aldingo office chair
in the market for an office chair. searched and tried many outlets. didn't want to spend too much money. asda came out the best all round chair at a discounted price of 29 pounds. collected from store after ordering on-line. came flat packed but easy to assemble. a sturdy chair, comfortable (i'm, dare to admit, 15 stones) and of reasonable quality, not bad looking. one thing i wasn't completely taken with was the chairs description as being leather faced, i'm not sure if it is? i would buy this product again and would certainly reccommend it to friends.

Rated 1 out of 5 by studioman Not the size specified
Ordered online, went to collect it from my local store but was very disappointed to discover that the size specified in the item description is wrong! (H910-990 x W58 x D59cm)
The width of the seat is no where near 58cm wide. The seat is quite narrow and even a slim person would be uncomfortable sat on this for long periods of time. I also noticed that the plastic arm rests dig into your thighs. I have to presume that the 58cm width refers to the chair legs width and not the seat.
Thankfully I did get a no quibble refund when I returned the item.

I've recently moved from Ireland relocating with work and for the last year I have been using a hard old wooded chair that came with the flat for my work office. One day whilst surfing the web i stumble onto the Asda Direct site and start browsing for an office chair and hey presto! You will not find a cheaper, higher quality leather office chair anywhere else. It was easy to assemble and the delivery was fast. I have the leather office chair 2 months now and it most definitely the best purchase I've made since arriving to the UK. Thank you ASDA!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sartori Great chair for the money
Very pleased with this chair, especially its value for money. It comes in a fairly compact box, more compact than I thought it would actually and the instructions are nice and clear, well done Asda on that.
Unfortunately I was missing one of the four washers for the underneath of the seat which was a bit of a pain but other than that it was straightforward to put together and didn't take long.
The chair seems solid and i find it comfortable. Exactly what I was after and a good deal at the time so yes I would recommend it to others quite happily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kola Most comfortable desk/computer chair ever
I bought 1 of these to use at the computer as at 41 I have a slipped disc and just found out also osteo-arthritis it is absolutely fantastic. It supports the back, has extra support low down for lumbar region so you wont get any back pain sitting in this chair, and the arms are at a perfect hight I prefer sitting in this chair to any oither in the house It's brilliant for at my desk and on the computer as well as anything else I want to do. My disabled mother tried the chair and I got her one too as she liked it as much as I did.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tonyh Disappointing purchase
I suppose for £29, i shouldn't be TOO picky, and there's nothing really THAT bad about the chair - for the money. However, the fact is that it feels cheap, smells rather odd, is uncomfortable and worst of all has no tilt mechanism, which makes prolonged use problematic. Executive, it certainly is NOT, and I doubt it will last very long. I just wish i had read some of the less complimentary reviews before purchase, and i would have discovered all the points i found out subsequently and would definitely NOT have purchased!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by saali great value
i bought this chair over 2 wks ago and its been great so far. i usually like to go have a look in store to get a better feel of the product so you know what you are buying but I didn't have time. Its comfy & was easy to put together even though its was my son who did it, didn't take him long either. good value and would recommend to anyone. slightly rocky when you lean back but it may be that way. I use it for computer work but daughter usually sits on it the most even to watch TV, my cats love it. great value too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DerekC doesn't stand the test of time
The chair assembled easily enough but within five months the seam split on the seat cushion, I wasn't too bothered about this as I took into account the price (£27).
Nine months on however and one of the plastic arm assemblies has split at a point where the bolts connects the seat to the back leaving the seat and back wobbly and of course there's now more strain on the other bolt points.
I'm hoping asda will give me a credit note/refund for this fault as I really don't want an identical replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steph21 Glad i picked this chair!
This chair is excellent value for money. I was looking round at different chairs and spotted this one because of its very low price compared 2 similar chairs like it, however after reading the reviews, it sounded like a good decent chair, so i bought it and very pleased i did! Would have paid more for it. it is very sturdy, quite comfortable and looks nice, best purchase i could have bought, especially for the price! Easy to put together, not much need to look at instructions and only took 5minutes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by chiefassembler pleasantly surprised
One is always a little dubious when self assembling a purchase is required, at least that is how it was for me, until your chair was delivered, promptly to my address. It was wonderful to find myself putting this product together, with the minimum of fuss and in quick time. When assembled, the chair stood up to my expectations and it continues to provide the comfort and support I need when using my computer. I look forward to my next purchase from you. thankyou, once again for a reliable service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by scott12 Astinishing Value
If you are prepared to do a little self assembly then you will really get great value from this offer ! It takes around 30 minutes to put together, but is simple enough and no extra tools are needed. The finish and quality is excellent and the chair itself has good proportions, but recommend that you try it for size before purchasing. Important to note that this model does not tilt or angle at the back, the position is fixed, which suited me as l prefer a firm fixed position for my lower back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BOF2 Executive chair.
First the plus points. It is cheap and very easy to assemble- perhaps ten minutes. Now the minus points: This is not an executive type chair. The seat is cramped, it has no tilt, the armrests are so far back as to be useless and if they weren't structurally necessary for the construction of the chair I would remove them. They are also low and pinch the thighs and hips. The seat itself is small and uncomfortable and the back is so low that it offers no support. A previous reviewer also commented on the fact that the seat drops slightly on its pillar when used - this is a little off-putting. I would agree that if this type of chair is wanted pay a little more. It was a pity that I wasn't able to try this before purchasing it - if the facility was available I would not have bought it. Disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NazH Great for the price...
I recently purchased this chair for my son to use in his bedroom for his studies.
Assembly was relatively straight-forward and I managed to put it together on my own in about 10-15 mins (and that was with my taking my time!).
We purchased it when Asda had a 20% off all furniture so instead of the usual £35.00 we paid £28. For that price, it was a great purchase.
The build quality looks good but time will tell. If it can last a 9 year olds daily use for a few years I will be impressed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveWin58 Amazing Value!
I was a bit unsure about what to expect when I ordered this chair, but I should have known better & believed the other reviews!
This chair is excellent value - I've spent over 4 times the amount on poorer products.
Assembly took all of 15 minutes & only needed an allen key (and that's provided). In fact, the biggest hassle was getting rid of the cardboard box it came in!
All-in-all, a really comfortable chair that does everything you'd expect from something costing much more.

Rated 5 out of 5 Pleasently Surprising
The item was easy to order and delivered to the store of my choice earlier than expected. When I opened the item I was very pleasently surprised by the quality of the chair covering and the sturdiness of the arms, feet and the column of the chair. Really didn't expect this quality for only £29.00.
The chair was easy to assemble and is comfortacle to sit in, the hieght adjustment is very smooth, really everthing I was looking for to make the hours at my computer a lot more comfy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jules282 great value
after searching around to find a good value office chair, i found this one- it is a bargain- i got it in the sale, but for the usual price it would still be a great price.. good quality, easy to put together & it is comfortable, its surprisingly lightweight & i think it looks more expensive- very pleased with it [ perhaps the only disadvantage would be that if you are a bigger than average size, you may find the arms dig in to your legs- but it is a regular/standard size chair]

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gluedtocomputer Wouldn't recommend for daily lengthy use
Unimpressed. Lacks essential padding in seat area,resulting in a hard sitting area.Seat depth and width is skimped on, overall cramped feeling when sitting in it,especially cramped at the armrest area. If you sit for long periods at your comp( i do as i run a business)you need comfort and room to manoeuvre, this chair lacks that
Angle of back is severe far too upright.
No tilt, which was not pointed out in description.
Chair proportions more suited to an adolescent or child

Rated 5 out of 5 comfort at affordable price
I had a very good computer chair at home which broke and I needed a replacement in comparing this chair I have bought to my previous one it is more comfortable easier to manoeuvre looks better and is ideal for my purpose I am sure I can fall asleep on it and be comfortable also and this chair cost less than half the price of my last chair. I am very happy with it and have already reccommended this chair to friends and family and will continue to do so. Keep up the good woek.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lindie I Love This Chair!
After sitting on a hard chair at the computer for over a year, i decided it was time to allow myself a bit more comfort - i shopped around , and decided that this chair looked good, and was a very reasonable price. I made the right choice- it looks smart,doesn't look cheap, and is very comfortable.It seems well built, feels sturdy, and would recommend it as an excellent buy. Plus the service from Asda was great, I received the chair within a few days of purchasing online.

Rated 4 out of 5 by helly8 Very good for 30 quid
Reasonably comfortable but you need more than one person and strength to screw the back of the seat onto the chair. Once this is done its very sturdy and does the job. The description says the chair made from leather and a number of other materials, however it feels very plastic, but expected at only £30- this is also great if you have young kids or dogs as it could withstand scratches etc (it's durable). The plastic does not affect its appearance. Delivery was prompt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KingCobra Hard work but worth it
Whoever came up with the phrase "Easy home assembly" in the advertising for this executive chair, has clearly not had to assemble one! Yes it is a very comfortable chair but I am not impressed with this trend by manufacturers who, in an effort to save money on labour costs, or a few square feet of recycled cardboard, expect unskilled, untrained customers to do their own assembly. I bought a total of three chairs, in two orders but the first one took around 4 hours to assemble, the remaing two took around two hours each. Even vacuum cleaners come in kit form these days. As a retired manufacturer I would never expect people without training to assemble my electronic products. They all come ready to plug in and work. I'd rather pay an extra £10 to have it arrive ready assembled, in a larger cardboard box, ready to sit on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Majj Value for money buy
Did a thorough trawl through the internet for computer chairs before I bought this chair from Asda Online. Range from £15 to £100+. Obviously depends on quality, material and style. However, the Asda Mid-Back Executive Chair is top quality and very stylish. Looks lot more expensive than what I paid for it. Very comfortable and even has lower back support built into the chair. Very easy to assemble and the pick up from store option was ideal. Excellent Buy.
