The real thing
The retail world is littered with low quality reproductions - this is not one of them. We checked the dimensions when we ordered and hoped for the best, and we were extremely pleasantly surprised. Everything about this chair is spot-on - the dimensions, shape, look and feel, quality of the components, features like the swivel, etc. From the interior feel, cushions and you name it, we can't tell the difference from the ones we tried in Finland and the design shops. We're extremely pleased with it and are looking at putting more purchases through this store.
Identical to the original ball char - same shape (slightly more than half a sphere, curves in a little bit unlike the low quality reproductions). Same 5 slice fabric arrangement inside. Padded with foam under the fabric, good sized and comfortable cushions. Nice lacquered exterior, very uniform without manufacturing defects. Good swivel base with heavy screws and bearings which look very sturdy.
Larger than we thought, even though we really measured twice. Make sure you really pay attention, this chair made it through our front door but not through the office door. Needs to vent a little bit when you take it out of the box, ours smelled a little bit like glue - the smell went away in a few days though.

Very Pleased with my purchase
Of course we all have dreams owning a ball chair. Finally i decided to shell out the money and get one sight unseen (orange and white). There was obviously concern that i was going to be unhappy with the quality. After i set it up, all my fears were laid to rest. It was shipped in a big box with the base not attached. The hardest part about getting it set up was all the protective bubble wrap. It is quite large, barely fit through my sliding glass door on my porch (Make sure to have a game plan for getting it inside) The rotating base is attached using two "roller bearings" and is extremely sturdy. Its nice and smooth and you can easily spin yourself in a circle. There isn't much back support for tall people (we just don't fit very well), so i added another pillow. My lady friends fit much better.
Duel Roller Bearings in the swivel Solid and smooth finish Carpeted base Exciting to sit in Great conversation piece
Strange smell for the first week or so No optional ottoman offered (I would have happily bought one) Difficult to get out of (But that is just a characteristic of all ball chairs) May need to add extra cushions for increased comfort
