Gentoo Dura Operator Chair

My son said the chair was easy to assemble and he's delighted with it.

excellent website, very easy to use, and would definitely recommend Office Furniture Direct. The chair arrived earlier than expected, although it was a present for my son and I had no notification from the company that it had been delivered.

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave such great feedback.

Gentoo Rectangular Desk with Twin Cantilever Legs - (w) 1200mm x (d) 600mm

Easy to assemble and looks great.

Gentoo Eclipse 2 Chair With Loop Arms

Easy to assemble but not overly comfortable. Cushions are a little hard.

Office Furniture Direct were fast and efficient when dealing with my order. I was unavailable during the first delivery slot given to me, but the advisor quickly changed it to a more suitable time. The delivery men were bang on time also. Couldn't fault any part of my experience. I would definitely use again!

Thank you for the great feedback. It really is fantastic to hear that we were able to be so accomodating with your delivery.

Gentoo Rectangular Desk with Twin Cantilever Legs - (w) 1200mm x (d) 600mm

Good solid construction - no 'wobble', even with the vanity panel partially removed to fit the pedestal.

Gentoo Eclipse 1 Chair With Loop Arms

Good quality - runs well on the castors.

Gentoo Tall Narrow Under Desk Pedestal - (w) 300mm x (d) 550mm

The unit itself is of good solid construction. However, what was not made clear is it will not fit fully under the desk when the vanity panel is in place. To recess the pedestal back in-line with the desk front, otherwise it sticks out, you need to cut out a section of the vanity panel.

Gentoo Bookcase 800mm

Good solid construction. Could benefit from one more shelf

Gentoo Cupboard 2000mm High (4 Shelf)

Good construction, particularly useful is the 'solid' back panel making the cupboard very rigid and strong.

Gentoo Desk High Side Filer

Good solid construction -

They have a very good website where you can interactively view in detail the products available from the various office suppliers. Once chosen, the furniture was delivered on time, the materials supplied were all correct and well packaged.

Thank you very much for the really great 5 star review of both our service and easy to use website.

Gentoo Chelsea Leather Chair

Not convinced that the chair is leather (i.e. from a cow) as advertised.

Service is quite rapid.
The chair is very good and comfortable.
It is advertised as being leather, but I don't think it is real leather, which was slightly disappointing.

Thank you for taking the time to review us.
The Chelsea chair is made from Bonded leather which is also known as blended leather.
Bonded leather is not only environmentally friendly, but has exceptional consistency with no natural defects which is great for a professional look.

Great looking desk, strong but not too heavy.
Very easy to assemble. Added bonus of an addittional 2 cable routing ports on the inside back modesty panel that I didnt see mentioned in the details.

Fast and easy to use website, well layed out with detailed information on all products.
I used the webchat feature to ask a question and I was connected to an advisor with an answer in less than a 30 seconds.
Delivery was prompt and most importantly all in one piece, not a single dent or mark on the packaging.

reasonably good quality furniture..

I could not necessarily find all the choice I had wanted and it was not always possible to see all the colour combinations. But it was quick and easy to order and the desks were delivered efficiently and in good condition. Some products are better value than others so you have to choose carefully. I have ordered more than once and I will re-order in future.

the chair is comfortable and just the right height for my computer desk, but I wish the instructions would come with a few more words and not just pictures and arrows.

Gentoo Zure Fully Bespoke Task Chair Without Headrest

See earlier comment. Again, your web offering seems to be unstructured; you have already asked me to comment.

Excellent product but fitting / operating instructions supplied are not adequate. When contacted, your support team were able to provide a video of how to fit and operate the chair, which solved all problems.
The website suggests that the chair can be bought with or without headrest. However, in selecting to buy the chair, the option is not offered so I ended up buying the headrest that I did not want for an extra sum. Unsatisfactory.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review us. 
Unfortunately the option without headrest seemed to have not been added - I have however,  now added this.

We are available on the telephone (01480 220311) for anything that our customers are unsure of, or if you have any queries at all.
