12/27/2015Colton Track Arm Club Chair
Lovely color....somewhere between a shade darker than a regular medium blue and dark aqua....if you can imagine what that would look like. That was my concern when I purchased the chair as all monitors pick it up differently. I read all the reviews, and called DL to see if I could get a better perspective on the true color. I guess this color is hard to explain to anyone so I guess you just have to take the plunge like I did. Although I would have preferred it more on the aqua color side, I am pleased. Looks very stylish, firm seating, and I love the tacks. Easy to put together. I have it in my, "soon to be office"...still decorating & painting or would have sent pic. I will only give this a 3 star on quality right now ONLY because I need to see how it wears, and the structure holds up. Very pretty looking chair, at a great price!!

I ordered 2 of the chairs for my parents' small apartment. The size of the chairs was perfect for their space and the color was exactly as pictured. The chairs are comfortable sitting chairs and make good occasional chairs or bedroom chairs. The nail head trim gives them a more expensive look. The legs have to be screwed in, but went in easily although it would be nice if they were labelled so you'd know exactly how to orient them. Overall we were all pleased with them, especially for the price.

First of all, very impressed with Designer Living after reading some terrible reviews. I ordered 2 chairs on a Sunday afternoon and had them by Thursday morning. They were well packaged and protected.
I was happy that the chairs arrived mostly assembled, just had to screw on the legs. This makes the chairs pretty sturdy. You have to play with the legs a bit, though, to get them all even.
The color of the chair is gorgeous, and exactly what I looking for. It looks pretty similar to the color in the picture. The fabric feels nice and the studding is done well. That said, this is definitely not a reading chair you can sink into, but it looks absolutely beautiful and fills in my space nicely.
02/02/2015Colton purple chair: Nice design, so-so-quality, weird color
Pros: Love the design of the chair. The clean, contemporary lines and nailheads are beautiful. The upholstery is neat and professional-looking. The size is also nice. It's fairly small for an armchair but doesn't feel small to sit in. Fits into a bedroom. Arms are just the right height for holding a book. The price was good for a chair this pretty.
Cons: frame quality, comfort and color. It feels sort of rickety when you sit in it. The back and seat are very firm, not ideal for the reading chair I was hoping this would be. Lastly, the purple color is not what I was hoping. I hoped the color was off on the photograph as the color is neither purple nor the "rich red wine" color as in the description. It's sort of purplish, but muddy/dusty. If you have access to Pantone colors, the closest Pantone color is 209. The odd color might make it difficult for this chair to blend with most decor; it's not primary, jewel-tone, earth-tone or neutral.
I'll keep the chair and use it somewhere else and get a more comfortable, sturdier chair for reading.

Purchased this chair to create a vignette in my living for more seating and to fill a void in the room. What drew me to this chair was the nailhead detail and color options.
