I love this chair. I was surprised at how simple and perfect it is. Helps you sit up properly. The cushion is weirdly sort of flat and stiff, but perfectly nice to a bony booty. I use it for when I'm painting at my easel. Well, that's why I bought it. I now also use it for when I'm recording seated, working on projects, sometimes working at my desk instead of the big ol' desk chair, etc. It's versatile and great - for sitting. What's not great is kranging your ankle on the protruding metal wheel base. It's a bit out there so it doesn't tip at its top height, or when you lean over in it. Great for butt in seat, not great for wheel base on ankle violence. That's obviously user error, not the fault of this fully functional product.
