We purchased 2 of these swivel chairs and took about a month from time of purchase to delivery. This was drop shipped directly from the manufacturer and packaging was solid in thick cardboard with a white sheet protector over it. Since we purchased two the delivery truck guy loaded this and left us with the pallet that it came shipped on. It’s not super heavy, two person job can carry it in.
Upon opening it I was in love with how pretty it looked. We debated over and over between this color and another and I’m so glad we went with the crescent color. It added an airy feeling while looking lux. I underestimated the size of this even though we measured it. It does stand out in the formal room (in a good way). Assembly wasn’t necessary. Out of the box it was ready. The swivel is smooth. The chair itself is super firm so it’ll take some time breaking in. It does sit low to the ground and seat height is low as well. It’s a perfect chair for reading and love wrapping my arms around the elbow rest.
