Comments about Alvin Griffin Drafting Chair:
I do a lot of oil painting and find this chair is great with its height adjustments and maneuverability. It was easy to assemble. The curve in the backrest is nicely supportive. I got the version with the open-ish backrest to have good air circulation. I have long legs so would have liked the seat to be a little longer, but that has not been a problem. Overall, I would recommend this chair, and would purchase again.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This chair is just right for doing art work at my drafting table. I particularly like the mesh back and the excellent lumbar support it offers. It was easy to assemble and adjust to my specific size needs. It is sturdy and comfortable for long sittings.

I do a lot of Pen & ink drawing, ergonomically comfortable this is a great chair for the value. I would give it 5 stars but the castor wheels don't lock, and on my studio's smooth floor, it is unsafe. I like the chair so much I'm going to lay down a mat to make it stay put when I sit.

Great chair, but back falls off!!!
I really liked this chair, but had to go to the hardware store to buy 2 longer bolts and NUTS to secure the back of the chair!! This fell off with the present design. What were they thinking?? How can 2 screws that are simply screwed into the plastic behind the back of the chair, and not secured by nuts, hold that back on for long?? Too bad. Now I've fixed the problem i really like the chair.

I'm very pleased ....

I ordered this on Tuesday and it was delivered from the manufacturer on Friday !!! Assembly was easy. The assembly diagram is very clear, all the parts are obvious as to what is what and the chair was put together very quickly. So far (half a day) it seems very comfortable. I'm still playing with the adjustments - of which there are many - back rest height and depth, seat height, foot ring height. The chair is very well made. I think this is going to work really well. I use it in my watercolor painting area and needed something higher than a standard chair. And I wanted good back support and a raised foot rest. This chair has it all. I'm very pleased.
