I bought this chair to match the wood of my Koala sewing cabinet, about 20 years ago. Both have held up very well over the years. Four kids and several animals later, my chair was badly in need of TLC. The chair itself was still in great condition, however, I never really loved the dark green color fabric. There weren't may very exciting fabric color choices when I chose my chair and even today I still see a very limited range of fabric selections for the newer versions of these chairs.
