      These Chairs are incredibly uncomfortable. They dig in to your back and thighs. Additionally, they are unattractive and not worth the price.

          Comments about Steelcase Cachet - Swivel Caster Base:

          I enjoyed this cachet chair while I was a student at Santa Clara University's Law School, and ever since I graduated, I vowed that I would one day get myself one for home, and I am currently fighting to get my work office to adopt a set of them (I would bring mine in to show them, but it is mine, I do not want them touching it!).

          What I like most about its design is the firm lower back support and the armrests that you can flip up or down depending on if you are leaning in while working (or gaming...) or leaning back to watch a show or for when someone wants to sit in your lap.

          The material is very easy to clean, and to clean to a degree that someone finicky about sanitation can appreciate.

            Comments about Steelcase Cachet - Swivel Caster Base:

            We have this same chair in some of our conference rooms at work. I found them very comfortable and rugged so I thought I'd buy one for my home office. Given the Steelcase reputation for well-built functional office furniture, I figured it was a no-brainer. It was...I'm thoroughly happy with the chair. The fold up arms are a huge plus as I'm a guitarist who uses a PC to record, practice and play music. The arms give the guitar free clearance unlike most office chairs where the arms get in the way. I highly recommend.

                I use the chair in my confined home office space and its compact design is a big plus. Only negative in the experience, an incidental / minor factor at this point, was the length of time between order and delivery.

                    Our school ordered about 350 of these about 6 years ago. As far as I know, only one has been broken since. They see 6 hours of student action/day all year.

                    Very impressive quality and design.

                    Writing and working at my desk is not a chore. Love the support it gives to my back and being able to flip back the arm rests. I do not know of any other desk chair that offers this option.Wish the installed casters would turn more easily when not seated.

                        Comments about Steelcase Cachet - Swivel Caster Base:

                        I purchased this chair for my son who often complained of lower back pain from sitting for extended periods of time. After searching multiple stores he mentioned his college had equipped these chairs in their classrooms, and insisted that he have one. I thought it was a bit pricy for a desk chair but once it arrived fully assembled and saw the quality of it, I myself was also sold. We also upgraded the casters to the hard wood/floor type and they are great, No scratches or track marks are on my foors! Thanks Steelcase!

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Excellent, Process time took awhile but once the confirmation email was sent to us we recieved the chair within the same week! Fully assembled too!
