Best all around recliner
We bought a very similar recliner to this one, however, ours is cloth. We have had it for over 20 years and yes, it's time for a new one. It makes a wonderful chair for my mother-in-law, who loves to rock and also needs a reclining chair, as she is 91 years old, and it allows her to rest during the day. I would buy this chair again, and our next purchase will definitely by a Lazy-Boy.

Pretty little chair.
I bought this chair in 2010. I needed a small chair for a small room. It has a steel frame. It doesn't set all that close to the wall, tho it is supposed to be a wall hugger.
The arms are a little high, it wouldn't hurt if they were 2" or 3" lower. If I have both arms at my side, it's too tight. If I try doing anything other than sit, my elbows rub on the arm material and the material I chose is rough. I loved the color, a warm brown with burgandy stripes. But after using it for a while the nubby fabric dulls and it is rough on bare skin especially the elbows.
I wish I had chosen better and that I had gotten the rocker/recliner version. This chair rocks a little bit, making me concerned that something isn't properly tightened. Maybe it's supposed to.
Overall, except for the arms, it's a nice size, I love that it comes apart for moving (I brought mine home in my Grand Am.) I also love the higher lift to the leg rest, I need my legs up at near the level of my hips. This chair does that and has two other positions.
As for the arms, maybe I'm just too big for the armrests. I tried it at the store, but I didn't try putting both arms at my side. I recommend you do that. The closeness wouldn't be so bad either if I had chosen a smoother fabric. I'm thinking about recovering the arms. That is something you can do.

Wonderful recliner purchase
I bought this recliner about 4 years ago and I have enjoyed it so much. I have back problems and this chair is comfortable, has back support and is so easy to get out of.
It is a recliner,chair and a swivel rocker also. It still looks great and was well worth what I paid for it. I sit in this rocker every day and when company comes they head for the recliner.
