    The top one has more style. The bottom one looks like a big hemorrhoid cushion.

    I prefer the look of the top one. It's hard to say which would be more comfortable without sitting on them.

    hm i would say you might consider getting a chair with a headrest especially when it's about relaxing

    of the two choices i would take the lower one since it looks more comfy

    I've sat in ones like the bottom chair, and all of the ones with metal frames have been horribly uncomfortable. Pier One sells papasan chairs like that with Bamboo/Wicker frames and they're extremely comfortable. I think they cost about $100 for the frame and the cushion.

    I think the top chair looks good for you, but I would think the cat would prefer the bottom one. Buy both, one for you and one for your moggy .. :)

    That is exactly the case. I've sat in both the top and bottom. For me and my body type the top curved too much so that it made my head tilt forward because it was trying to ball me up too much. I could not adjust that at all. The bottom was similar to the papasan chairs @ Pier 1 but not adjustable like Pier 1's. At Pier 1 you can maneuver the top from the base and sit more upright if you want or put it completely horizontal (like a bowl) and lay in it. These were huge 10+ years back and my mom went through the phase. Bought two chairs and a love-seat. They were great actually. I used to put the chairs horizontally and sit with my legs crossed under me and chat on AOL (now I'm dating myself!!). I think the extra you spend for the Pier 1 model is worth it. That top one though is horribly uncomfortable.
