We love it

This chair is beautifully made and incredibly comfortable. It looks fantastic. My husband had been opposed to buying it but now that it's here, he loves it and has even made it his preferred place to sit. It took longer to arrive than we had expected (over 2 months) but we weren't in a hurry and it was well worth the wait. So thrilled to have something so very well made, and made in the USA. It's truly beautiful.

This is a beautiful chair--my first piece of adult furniture! I was worried it would be too big or bulky for my small (600 sq. foot) apartment, but I have it paired with the Nixon loveseat in my living room, and it works great. Highly recommended.

Worth Every Penny

Well made and surprisingly light considering how sturdy it is. A neat angular design but not an angular feel at all: soft cushions and the elbow rests on the arms of the chair make for a real comfortable chair. Customer service was also great. Very happy with the entire experience.

quick quality

November 14, 2012 - Written by

I was sold on the style, though I had a couple questions, so I emailed Thrive and a reply came back literally one minute later. So I ordered my two Kennedy chairs that afternoon, having good vibes from the customer service aspect. I ordered on November 1st and 14 days later, I have my chairs more than half way across the country. The packing was expertly done, and my chairs arrived in pristine shape. I took them up the three flights of stairs to my urban condo after unpacking them, and they are stunning. Very nice craftsmanship and excellent color, matching the swatch that I was sent earlier in the year. The chairs themselves are much more comfortable than they look, and they fit perfectly in the space that I got them for. I really couldn't be more happy with the entire transaction and product, and highly recommend these chairs to anyone who may be on the fence.

The Kennedy

September 28, 2012 - Written by

We just received the Kennedy(cordova eclipse) chair along with the Taylor(cordova amber) Sofa. The sofa and chair are both absolutely amazing! The wood, the material, the color, absolute works of art. We had never seen any of their products in person, so this was a big decision for us. I would recommend requesting the swatches before ordering, because some of them are quite different than they look here. They are definitely worth it, and we will be ordering from thrive again.

I love my Fillmore love seat in Klein Pool. It along with the Kennedy chairs in the same fabric look great in my historic, yes Southern home. The modern look contrasts nicely with my antique Persian rug. Impeccable craftsmanship. I'm already contemplating my next Thrive purchase.

Simply beautiful

February 02, 2012 - Written by

I wanted to leave a review on my experience getting the kennedy chair: Order Process: My purchase experience was smooth. Got my questions answered by friendly and highly knowledgeable people. You can tell by the conversations that they actually know what they are talking about! I was a bit angry that I had to wait 6 weeks to get the chair. But holy crap when the product finally arrived I completely forgot about the long wait and it felt like it was all worth it. Product: You can just tell at first sight that this was VERY HIGH QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP. Anyone who comes over the house instantly gravitates to this baby. It is the absolute best show piece of my living room. I can't find a single thing I would change about this product! Bravo. Overall - I would give the entire process 4.5-stars. If I would have received my chair a little sooner it would have been a 5 since the product is SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL!!
