This chair looks spectacular and is extremely comfortable. It is my favorite chair to watch tv or read to my daughter. Spills aren't a problem. They wipe off easily. The only bad thing is that we now have to get the ottoman. Thought we could get away with using the ottoman from the sectional we bought at the same time. The reality is that we needed two ottomans. We got both pieces of Ashley Furniture from http://www.furnitureblue.com/page/ashley.html. We got an extra 10% taken off due to their Buy More Save More special.
