"Not functional"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This chair is only for viewing. It?s not functional at all. I bought these as an anniversary gift to replace my husband?s old African lazy chair which he use to read in and take naps. Now, I?m out of $239 for two chairs, no gift, and a shipping g cost which incentivized keeping chairs I don?t like. I will never buy anything from here online. Never.
