Madison Park Justin Swivel Glider Chair in Tan

Customer Review: "I ordered two of these chairs and they came very quickly by UPS. The boxes were a little beat up, but the chairs were in perfect condition. They are exactly as pictured and both swivel and glide. Be aware though that these chairs are on the petite side and the back is not high for laying back and relaxing. For me though they are exactly what my space needed as I did not want huge chairs."
