    You can find that there are several changes on this easy chairs.For the solid wood frame, there are several changes.First is the armrest shape,the rear parf of the armrest becomes thin suddently.The biggest difference for the wood frame is that this Germany version add one wood bar behind the upholstery to suppor the backrest while the original one has no this bar and screw is used to fix the armrest and the upholstery.To reduce the difficulty, the upholstery seat part is also changed.By doing so, the production will become easier than the original one,but the sense of whole is not so strong

    For this armchair made by China furniture factory,also there are some changes.First for the wood frame,it is almost same as the original one,but is is made walnut insteaf oak or teak.For the upholstery, you can find the the front seat part is thicker than the original one.The most biggest difference is the ridge on the backrest.The ridge provide greater comfort to human back makes it unique compared with the original one.But on the other hand, because of this ridge, it is very difficult for technician to make it.Even a little carelessness,there will some bubble after some time.

    On the whole, each version  has its own features.It is up to consumers to decide which one is apt to their house or offcice.
