everytime I see newson's felt chair, I keep seeing a giant noodle. !luc Well, you need to be a noodle to sit in it for long periods of time. I actually took it out of our bedroom and swapped it with a spring chair that I had in my office. The Spring Chair looks great, but it is not comfortable either. It is funny, we bought the "Birds" and the Felt chair at the same time. At first, I hated the birds and loved the felt chair, now I love the birds (which are soooo comfortable) and am a bit more lukewarm on the felt chair.
