I was looking for a nursery glider and was told Dutailier was the best. The only ones that didn't have the ugly wood bottom were over $1000 I was skeptical about ordering online but since overstock is good about returns I took a chance. I love everything about it. It's on the narrow side so it fits in small spaces but has the feel of a big recliner. The cream is just as shown not off white a nice warm color ..all I ad to do is slide the back into the seat very easy. The leather looks expensive too.
We bought this for the nursery before the baby was born. It gets daily use! When she's older and no longer needs to be rocked, we'll put it into the living room. It really is a nice looking glider and would fit great into any living room as well as being an extremely comfortable glider for a nursery. Best piece of furniture I've ever purchase for looks and comfort and worth every dime of the cost.
I first got a similar dutailier chair exclusive to buy buy baby and liked it a lot. However, it did not recline, because I thought I didn't want it to. That was before I had my son and realized that not all babies take naps or go down to sleep easily...or at all. I've spent so much time wishing I could lean back with him in my lap and just be comfortable and doze off in those hours. I had to get a new chair, so I picked this one. It speaks highly of dutailier that I looked at every.single.reclining.rocker, even those over a grand, but came back to this brand. The quality is exceptional with a smooth glide, the recline mechanism is easy and smooth and quiet so as not to disturb my son, and it rocks while reclined!! It's the same color as my old rocker, a nice warm, variegated wool-like gray. And overstock's price and customer service could not be beat!! I also love the nursing ottoman after sticking my feet inside my old regular style ottoman to prop them. The only thing it's missing is pockets in the arm rest...I used the ones from my old chair (which was the 2-post style, not the sleigh), and they fit - an extra $* for the old chair well-spent /sarcasm. Oh well. Love this chair though! If only I had known what I know now and bought it in the first place.
We purchased two of these gliders for our living room. They glider is incredibly well balanced: it will glide back and forth with virtually no effort regardless of the amount of weight in the chair. These required just a little assembly. We were missing a tiny part, but Dutailier mailed these directly to us immediately. Incredibly comfortable. Highly recommended.
