Probably the one thing I don't like is that it seems short and the upper back rest doesn't come anywhere near my head. The fixed recline angle is fine (I guess…could be a little more), but it's difficult to REALLY relax and rest my head in this chair. May I assume that all of these lounge chairs are made at a fixed angle, and are NOT recliners? Also, I believe real Eames lounge chairs are available in a taller size, so its entirely possible that's been my frame of reference all along. More padding in the lumbar region would be nice too, but that can be remedied easily enough with a small, narrow pillow.
I read a good amount of reviews several months ago when I was considering buying one for my home office, but came to the conclusion that I didn't want one unless it was an original (where I could get a taller size), or that's it's just not the chair for me. On the upside, it seems to be pretty well made and it's really great to look at...so there's that.
Oh, well. It was a gift and its the thought that counts…so I'm a gracious recipient. Thank god my wife didn't buy me a real one, or I'd feel REALLY guilty! LOL.
