Great seat for my studio!

Comments about Alvin Viceroy Drafting Stool:
The item I received does not resemble the one shown in the picture online, in that the fabric is grey and not green and the mount which the wheels attach do is a different design entirely, though I actually like it more than the one pictured.Overall, I am happy with my purchase. The only downside was the incongruity in the item displayed online and that which was delivered. Also, one of the screws on the bottom of the seat stripped when I was assembling the chair. However, there are five other screws that fastened correctly so I guess it will hold.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Glad I bought this well-made chair
from Pacific coast
Pros -- Very sturdy.- Goes up high enough that I can have my drawing table set at standing-height, making it easy to go from sitting to standing when working on a piece.- good back support- comfy, full-sized seat- pretty wide range of adjustments in seat height, back height, and back-to-seat distance.nice looking, good color lightish gray instead of boring black.- seat has thick plastic molding that should last longer than the thin plastic I had on previous chair (that eventually simply cracked)- has a tear drop foot rest that automatically goes up and down with the seat to keep a comfortable foot position. It is also very sturdy- easy to put together- price was reasonable and really good if you wait for a 20 or 25% off sale at BlickCons - - I wish it would go down as low as a regular chair just in case I want to use it that way, but it won't go quite that low.- would be nice if it came in more fun colors.- would be nice if there was an option for armsOverall I'm very pleased with the comfort and apparent durability of this chair compared to others I've used.
Perfect for what I needed
from Portland, ME
I am working at a tall workbench for 2-5 hours almost every night. I have used this chair for almost a month now and no complaints. I like the foot rest, it's solidly built. I was a little worried when putting it together as some cover up parts looked cheap, but the main construction is solid. Easy to put together and quick. Excellent bargain!
love the chair
By studio painter
I recently decided to buy a new studio chair to replace one I had for many years. This one is really nice. Very solid, easy to put together and has a nice range of heights for easel painting. It looks very nice also.
Beautiful, comfortable, and sturdy!

wish we could have kept it
By Artist's Mom
from Wylie, TX
This chair was great quality, especially for the price! I bought it to replace my son's old chair, which came as a set and was rickety from the start. This chair was easy to put together and sturdy, much sturdier than the previous chair. However, my son needed one that would go 2-inches lower, so we had to send this chair back. We wanted to keep it because it was a great chair all around! The return was super easy. Blick made the whole experience fantastically easy for us!
great seat with plenty of range
i use it at a drafting table. footrest is terriffic, can't go wrong for the price . dick blick does it again, great service as usual. thanks
