Purchased this chair for my 94 year old father who was struggling to get out of his XXXXXXX-XXX soft recliner. This chair has enough firmness that he has been able to stand up without using the lift thus far. He is 6 feet tall and the chair accomodates his height when he reclines. He loves it and that is the goal. It looks like most any other recliner, kind of innocuous. The controls were easy for him to learn and to operate. The chair doesn't take up any extra room over the prior recliner. Color is close to black. We are delighted with the purchase. It was delivered carefully packed to our front door.
we were in such need of a lift chair and everywhere we looked was so expensive not only was this chair inexpensive but met all our requirements we needed for fall prevention for our handicapped daughter the controls are easy to use and its so easy to put together just have to make sure all power cords are were they should be before you put top piece on
This chair was purchased for my 82-year old father with back and knee problems. He is 5'11" and 190 lbs. This chair is perfect for him. It is quite easy to use and very good quality. Two things to note: The burgundy color is really brown and, this chair is NOT a wall hugger...so you need to have adequate space behind the chair in order for it to fully recline back. This recliner was offered at a big box store, but was actually cheaper to purchase through Overstock.com & you get free shipping and delivery! Can't beat it!!
I don't think this chair is for anyone taller than 5'8. There is a bar in the leg rest that hits my legs in a certain way that hurts a lot, I have to put a pillow there. And it must be moved far away from the wall. I would have liked to return it, but too much of a hassle.
