Recommendation: VERY sturdy recliner/armchair

November 8, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I'm just starting the process of planning our new house. We're going to be returning home after many years overseas in furnished quarters and need to start with the basics. To keep the other half of the family, the absolute starting point has to be a very comfortable, very sturdy chair, recliner if possible - something that a large guy can use daily for a couple of years at least.

Out of those million ;-) La-Z-Boy styles, try to stick to the ones that are described as "high leg" recliners. Those are the ones that actually look like real chairs with feet on them for a real living room, rather than sacks of puffy potatoes for a bachelor pad.

Bobbi, exactly! So much more man-friendly than fabric.
