What I looked for in a recliner (La-Z-Boy)

Recently I bought a La-Z-Boy recliner. Both my wife and I have really been enjoying it.

Before purchasing the Lazy Boy I came very close to getting one of these recliners available from Amazon:

Acme Sage Microfiber Recliner: Home & Garden – Amazon.comhttp://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002WGJHHM/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=pixensity-20&linkCode=as2&camp=217145&creative=399369&creativeASIN=B002WGJHHMProduct Description The Acme sage microfiber recliner is a space saving product that you can place in one corner of your house, without eating up much room. Perfect for those…

I am still curious about the Acme recliner, but after trying out the Lazy Boy in the showroom I decided to go with La-Z-Boy instead of the Acme. These were some of the determining  factors:

  • comfortable feel
  • ability to get choose different materials/covers
  • you can get a swivel base installed (in not much more than one hour)
  • the model I wanted was made in the USA (Missouri to be specific :-))
  • the warranty

I was happy to buy the Lazy Boy.  Since I plan on using it for many years to come,  I did not mind paying a little more.  🙂

On the other hand, if I was looking for a recliner for a dorm room, shop or someplace else where low-cost is king and longevity might be sacrificed… then I would definitely try out the Acme recliner!
