I went back and forth between this chair and the more expensive chairs but went with this one based on the great online reviews being honest. I wasn’t expecting much for the price, but I was thrilled when I received it. The glider and ottoman set were well packaged with no damage. Most of it was already assembled. All we had to do was screw the back and arms on and put the cushioning on. The assembly took my husband about 15 minutes, with only the tools that shipped with the assembly kit.
The glider is sturdy and looks like it’s much more expensive than it is the espresso color matches perfectly with our baby furniture. The chair is very comfortable and makes no squeaking sounds when I sit in rock vigorously. My sister got the same chair, but that one did squeak after she all doll the bushings and moving parts. The noise was all gone. The gliding motion is smooth and natural. The ottoman also glides smoothly and is at the perfect height for comfort the arms on this glider, provided the arm support to make it perfect for breastfeeding or bottle feeding a baby.
The back cushion is super soft and comfy during night feedings. I especially love the side pockets on the arms. They are convenient and big enough to hold empty bottles, soft toys, remote and books. Since I have had my baby a few months ago, this chair has really been a lifesaver. I use this only in the nursery but find my husband in it reading from time to time as well. He plans to move the chair to our living room next year when I don’t need it for nursery anymore. Overall, this glider and ottoman set are sturdy, stylish, comfortable and functional.
