After a month since the chair broke, I have finally taken delivery of its replacement. The process was slow and consisted of many repetitive questions, but its resoved and West Elm made the situation whole.

Upon sitting in the chair one of legs sheared off exposing defective manufacturing. There is clearly a missed weld or existing crack in the metal that had rusted prior to its finish chrome being applied.
I have emailed the company to ask what options they will present to make the situation right. I will report back with their response on fixing this $1000 chair.
Product or Service Mentioned: West Elm Lucas Swivel Chair.
Reason of review: Damaged or defective.
