Three years ago, we bought two big leather "power" recliners for the living room. I referred to them as the electric chairs, the mechanism for titling forward and back was electrified. We are not that lazy, the chairs were the most comfortable we could find, and comfort is important at our age.
Before you get swept up in power recliners, let me tell you about a couple of drawbacks. The chairs move at their speed, when Fed-Ex is ringing the doorbell with a package that requires a signature and you are trying to get out of the chair to get to the door in time before the driver disappears taking the long awaited delivery with her, you have no control over how fast the chair moves. Then there is the issue of the mechanical system, when it fails, you either can't get it up, or can't get it down -the foot rest that is. One of them failed recently, up. The new chairs were delivered on Wednesday, no more electric chairs for me.
