Rated 5 out of 5
by Cajkati Baby room
I purchased this product about a year ago for my second child's baby room. I am 5'4" and was concerned from previous reviews when I purchased, that the back of the chair was going to be to short or hit me in an awkward spot on my back. I have not had any problems whatsoever with this chair or its design, I actually really like this chair and would repurchase it in a heart beat.

by lawinkler2002 Very nice!
This is a very comfortable chair! I love the material, and the color (mocha) is beautiful! It doesn't take up much room, but as others have said, it is a little on the small side. My husband feels like a giant in it! It would be perfect if the back was a touch higher. Overall, I'm very happy with my new chair!

Rated 3 out of 5 by BabyNesting Glides well - shorter back than expected
This chair is comfortable and glides well (especially with the ottoman) -- but the back is shorter than I expected. Both my husband and I agreed we'll need to prop a pillow up in the night to support our head as this only goes to the top of our shoulders.
Also, delivery took over a month -- about 5.5 weeks -- so plan ahead. We weren't anticipating such a wait to set up a key part of the nursery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Elizg good, but not exceptional
The chair arrived in great condition with just a minor construction flaw that doesn't affect the use. The color (green or sage) is really pretty. The chair is silent, if I sit evenly in the middle of it to rock. The metal legs of the chair stick out just a little too far, so I've stepped on them in bare feet, which is uncomfortable! The back of the chair is well padded and very comfortable, but a bit low (I'm only 5'4") to rest my head back on without neck pain. Even an extra inch would help, so a small pillow or thick blanket will have to rest back there. The material appears sturdy and is a microfiber-type. Haven't had to wipe it down yet. The overall size of the chair is great for a bedroom - not too large, but big enough to do the job (with the exception of the low back). I'm pleased with the purchase, but didn't feel it was a great bargain - could've found a similar value and style for the same price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by firstreview Comfortable, color not as pictured
The chair is very comfortable and seems high quality (especially for the affordable price). Like others have said, the back is low, so it would be hard for a taller adult to rest his or her head, but it's fine if you don't plan on sleeping on it or plan to add an extra pillow or two. My one complaint is about the color. We ordered it in "spring," which appears to be a lovely light sage green on the website. Unfortunately, the actual color is bordering on chartreuse--not my personal favorite. The fabric is also not as pictured--a microfiber rather than the textured fabric shown online. The microfiber is nice, though, so for us, this is less problematic than the color misrepresentation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Susine Sad!!
for the first time my husband sit on the chair we heard a huge noise like a wood breaking, now everytime we sit its breaking more and more. I love the color, the texture, the price is good if it wasn't this problem, I am very sad, its a lot of money for aomething that didn't last 2 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JustStartingOut Nice quality and great value
We love our Jacob glider and ottoman! It was delivered in about 3 weeks and the delivery guys set it up for me (meaning they put it just where I wanted it and took it out of the plastic wrapping). It arrived in good condition, the skirts just need a little time to straighten out after being packaged for shipping. The chair is comfortable with a nice firm seat and soft over-stuffed back. I am 5'7" and my head is way above the back of the chair, so if you plan on sleeping in it put a pillow behind your head and neck for support. Our nursery is tiny, so the smaller size is actually a big plus for us. Together, the chair and ottoman take up about the same footprint as our crib. Both pieces glide nicely and we are pleased with the overall quality of the items. Great value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DCAngel Nice for a Small Room
This is a nice-looking, fairly affordable glider that arrived less than 3 weeks from my purchase (a big deal considering the shipping times for upholstered gliders at other retailers). We have a tiny nursery, and I needed a smaller glider, so this was a good fit for us. I would caution taller people to look at other chairs though - I'm 5'3" and I can rest my head at the very top of the back of the chair. It might be uncomfortable for anyone taller than me if you're expecting to spend any time sleeping in it. The chocolate color and fabric type also looks like it's going to attract a decent amount of lint (and cat hair!). Overall though, I'm pleased with the purchase.
