Dimensions

· 70cm wide (over arms)

Harriet score: 7 (Harriet’s lower leg (floor to top of knee is 55cm, her upper leg (top of knee to top of hip is 55cm, her body (top of hip to shoulder is 60cm overall she is 5’ 7”)


Gareth score: 5 (Gareth’s lower leg is 55cm, his upper leg is 59cm and his body is 60cm. Overall he is 6” 3’.


Our thoughts: The seat is rather shallow and the arms too low – this could be alleviated by replacing the 4in seat cushion with the original 3inch. Great for shorter people. We love the upsweep of the arms. The angled back makes for a more reclined sitting position.
