Recommendation: VERY sturdy recliner/armchair
rharbuckle
November 8, 2012
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.

Any thoughts? Our experience is that lower-end options (IKEA, etc.) last about six months...

I'd look at La-Z-Boy recliners, they come in a million styles and fabrics (ok, maybe not a million, but a lot): http://www.la-z-boy.com/Furniture/Recliners/

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.

Leather is good. Very easy to clean.

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