This chair's black color has finesse and will have it fit in nicely everywhere, while the cognac color is elegantly added in and even more attractive and pleasant to the eye. This chair's overall design has it suit any working or gaming environment. noblechairs consists of German designers who apparently had an avant-garde inspiration. As a result, a fresh design has now been brought to the flourishing chair market, something that finally goes beyond the omnipresent bucket-seat design most chairs adhere to.

Nothing is perfect, though, and the same applies to this product. Its price is stiff but you do, on the other hand, get a chair with a sleek design that uses nothing but top-notch quality materials, and this chair will most likely last for quite a while and is as comfortable as you might anticipate. Yet the two-year warranty has us worried. Since it is quite pricey and the company has said that the best materials have been used to forge the ICON Real Leather, we were expecting a much longer warranty; and once more for a noblechairs product, we have a very high quality product with no matching armrests. We find the armrests to be rather cheap-looking. They do offer the right ergonomics and expected functionality, but look out of place in comparison to the rest of the chair's aesthetics. A little more padding on the armrests in order to make them feel softer would also go a long way.

According to most, less is more, and comfort matters the most. This series does, as such, promise to raise the bar of durability, comfort, and aesthetics by using the finest materials - aluminum and top-grain real leather featuring precision-diamond-pattern stitching. The ICON Real Leather is no doubt very expensive at $579.90, but real leather isn't cheap and nor are the other quality parts it uses. If you want something elegant and unique in your office and can afford this chair, we are pretty sure you won't regret it. This is why it earns a recommendation from us. We know that a great number of users prefer investing in highly affordable chairs; however, given our experience so far, we strongly encourage you to invest in a quality chair and consider comfort and reliability first, not the price. A good chair will accompany you for many years and will keep you from back injuries and other such problems.
