mad black office chair is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good, but a bit uncomfortable We have had this chair for about 6 months. I love the way it looks, but it is not very comfortable to sit in after about 30 minutes. We needed a smaller profile chair, but we also sit at our desk for long stretches of time so this unfortunately for us it does not hit the mark on both form and function. I wish we had realized this sooner so we could have returned it and tried to find one that works better for us. That being said, if you don't need one for longer stretches, it looks really good and it may work for you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low quality casters Not very happy with this chair. It looks great, but the casters are super low quality plastic, which means they do not swivel on hard floors, and have scratched my floor several times already. Really can't recommend this at all for the money paid.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great but clicks/creaks when you lean back We purchased this chair to be used in our conference room but when we tested out the chair we noticed that previous reviews are correct and it does creak/click when you lean back in the chair. It is unfortunate since the chair looks great but it isn't worth turning a quiet conference room into a clicky, cacophonous space. The 2nd star is because it does look good but DO NOT PURCHASE unless you are okay with the clicks

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great, very uncomfortable I bought this chair 5 months ago, and loved it at first. Now I've come to realize just how uncomfortable it is. It's not even remotely ergonomic, and the seat is basically a flat board with some padding on it. I now dread working at home because I know it means I'll have lower back pain for two days, which is a shame, as I'd never had lower back pain before.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality and uncomfortable We've had this for about six months now. The chair looks great and fits well with our desk but is almost unusable for a full day of work. The leather has also started peeling at the seams which means it is quickly losing its appeal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adjustable height and looks great. I really like the adjustable height of this chair, this was a big bonus for me and is why I bought it. I can adjust it for a higher work counter and then to a lower desk. It's great for people of different heights if you share it. I can't speak to the castor issues as mentions as I have this on a thin rug and it works fine however I mostly swivel in and out of it. I used to have a vintage Knoll executive chair but this is a little more firm and upright and is helping my back for that reason. I find it comfortable and the faux leather nice. It not shiny like some faux leather but a nice natural finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Chair that fits under my desk I bought this chair because I needed a modern, sleek design, at an economical price that would slide under my desk since my desk is in my den and I wanted to be able to maneuver around it. It was easy to put together and even though I have a carpeted den, the chair moves easily across the floor. The chair is comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very simple and elegant design I love the simple look of this chair. It is also comfortable. Recommend using a pad or rug for hardwood floors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek and comfortable I bought this chair to sit at a mid century style desk in my living room (we have a small house). It blends in and is very comfortable. My favorite part about the chair is the size. It's not a big and bulky desk chair like what you find everywhere else. It's sleek get comfortable. I love the black. I did consider getting a second one for my office, and although I feel the chair is nice for the money, it's still a rather pricey office chair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable, and looks nice I've had this chair for about 2 months. It looks really nice, and the padding is comfortable. As others have said, the casters are horrible. They seem to just stay in whatever position they are in and just scrape in whatever direction they're pulled. One thing that really bothers me is that when I lean a bit to the left, the chair makes a loud "POP". I've ensured that the screws are tightened, and it feels like the pop is in the seat of the chair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful but Uncomfortable! While this chair is aesthetically pleasing, it is terribly uncomfortable to sit in for longer than an hour or two. Perhaps good for a conference room, but a terrible work chair. It made my back incredibly sore due to it's low back and zero lumbar support. Good for an hour or so, but not recommended for sitting longer periods of time. It looks so good I had to retire it to the corner and buy a proper work chair for my desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great chair Well made, fully adjustable, very comfortable for working at a desk

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice aesthetic, but uncomfortable, wheels are poor I bought the Mad Office Chair in black and had it for a month. I sit at the computer for work so I wanted something both mildly ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing. Unfortunately the low back and lack of lumbar support made it hard to sit in this chair for a full work day. Also the wheels do not roll completely in all directions on hard wood floors– I found myself having to aggressively push the chair into the spot I wanted at my desk for lack of any glide. I needless to say returned the chair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great low-back modern chair I have been using this for 3 months and it is exactly what I wanted. I don't like the style of office chair that has a very high back-- this one is a great alternative. The seat is very comfortable for even long periods of sitting. The armrests are narrow but I don't find them uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Chair! I have had this chair for over a year and still love it. I am about to buy 2 more. I highly recommend it!
