Bottom line

Customers who want an adjustable leather chair for a reasonable price won't do much better than the Office Star EC4300, reviewers say. Most agree the chair is versatile and adjustable enough to accommodate users of different sizes, but some say the seat isn't exactly buttery soft, with an overly firm pad and prominent stitching that can be uncomfortable on the legs.

Comfort

Complaints about padding, stitching. The Office Star EC4300 has a leather-upholstered foam seat back and base. Some reviewers complain that the padding is too firm, while others say the stitching can dig into a user's legs. The chair has built-in lumbar support and adjustable seat height, back height, arm width, arm height, seat angle, back angle and tilt tension. Though reviewers say the seat accommodates a wide range of users, a few say the lumbar support is lacking. There is no headrest and no option to add one.

Durability

Solid, with a few issues. The Office Star EC4300 has a weight capacity of 250 pounds. Most reviewers seem satisfied with the chair's quality, saying it feels solid. However, several note the instructions are unclear, and a few report that their chair's seat or back was uneven after assembly. Office Star backs the chair with a 15-year warranty on non-moving metal, five-year warranty on component parts and three-year warranty on upholstery. There are few customer-service reviews around the web.
