I never write reviews I just felt very strongly about this inferior product and company.
I find the chair less than fully comfortable in all positions but the fully laid back, zero-gravity, position. Three issues contribute:
1) When the chair is fully upright, the seat tilts forward, so you tend to be sliding out of it. That's not good for a long sitdown (obviously, a reclining chair is not intended for fully upright use, anyway).
2) In all by the zero-gravity position, the rather thin padding makes the lumbar compression normal in sitting pretty noticeable. (I believe you can shell out another couple hundred dollars for some additional padding).
3) The leg-rest area doesn't support my feet. After years of using an ottoman, I found this decidedly uncomfortable, although it would probably diminish over time. A shorter person would not have the unsupported-foot problem, but then their knee-to-fanny length might not match that dimension of the seat.
It appears to me that the "zero-gravity" position is what this chair is intended for. That is, tilted all the way back so the occupant's lower back is totally decompressed and the knees are elevated. I expect all the zero-gravity chairs work fine in this position.Read more ›
comfortable for the most part
do not take up a lot of space
easy to move around
Leather cover is too thin, almost paper thin on a backing. Ours have already split and we are normal weight people.
Very hard to clean because of how thin the leather is. Rub it too hard with a cloth and you will rub off the leather.
I don't like not being able to straighten my legs out occasionally. The chair is designed to curve your legs and this bothers my legs at times.
The leg extender is a waste of money and doesn't fit well and doesn't do anything but scrape the floor. If you cannot straighten your legs out why do you need the option of paying more for a leg extender? Don't.
Overpriced for what you get. A little hardware, a little wood, cheap leather and some foam. $300-500 per chair would be more in line with what you get.
All the options are additional costs.
In summary, I would not buy this chair again unless the price came down by about 2/3's.
The design should be improved to be able to straighten the bottom of the chair when desired.
Find one at a store and sit in it and inspect it very carefully before you drop that much money on this chair to see exactly what you will be getting no matter where you purchase it from.
I usually find myself sitting on the couch as sitting is less uncomfortable. Sometimes I fall asleep there for the night. So I was looking for something that would maximize the comforting result of changing position and perhaps be something to really sleep or nap on.
At the same time, I have venous insufficiency and swelling of the ankles where elevating my legs is good therapy. For both these things the chair is terrific. My night is now comfortably divided between the bed and chair, the latter bringing great comfort. The leg elevation gives the chair a one two punch.
I couldn't have asked for a better solution to my problems.
I should say that the chair can be used to watch TV or sit and chat, but it isn't ideal or worth spending the money for that. I give it an " A+ " for the things it is directly for.
I rattled the cage at Human Touch the first three times it happened—the cable was replaced every time it broke on warranty—but to have to replace the cable on a $2,000 chair every six months is not acceptable.
the last time I had interaction with them they claimed I had received the old cable and they had a "new improved redesigned cable" so I got one replacement for free on warranty but had to pay for the second one (figured if I ordered two the inertia required to order another cable after I replaced the one that was sure to break in six months wouldn't cause me the mental anguish of knowing I'd paid $2000 for a piece of junk furniture that cost $200 to make and ship from Asia) and low an behold the "new improved redesigned cable" is exactly like the old cable.
so I've lived with the chair being "the imperfect chair and not a recliner" for a year and a half and today I'm replacing the cable yet again with what is claimed to be a "new improved redesigned cable" feeling all the world like Charlie Brown preparing to kick the football being held by Lucy who has just spent five minutes assuring Charlie Brown this time she won't pull it away at the last moment.
I weigh 220 pounds and do not perform gymnastics on the chair, nor do I obsessively adjust the chair up and down, nor do I slam the breaks on at full speed—to contrary after the cable broke the first time I adjust the chair sparingly and gingerly and yet the cable breaks like clock work
