I have only had this for a couple of months what I can tell you about the chair is this:The cushion behind my head exceeds the the back and lumbar cushions and you sit with your head forward.it is very loud when reclining and puting back in the rest position. The chair is comfortable other than that, I guess time will tell how it will wear.

Depends on How Much You Use
This chair is comfortable, but not as well-built as the ten-year old one we were replacing. It accomodates a 300-lb. man very well.
But, we had a problem with the leather. My husband is hot-natured, and many times sleeps in it at night, since he suffers from insomnia. Within two years, the leather broke through in the area where his head rests. And, beware of Guardsman warranty - this was considered this normal wear and tear!!! Next time, we'll probably buy a chair off Ebay.
NOTE: In case you have a similar problem, we did find a thick bath mat at Bed, Bath and Body (Microdry Memory Foam) that actually matches and brown leather well and stays in place perfectly. Wish I had used this from the beginning.

Feeling As One With My New Rocka-Recliner
I'm a big guy and I'm hefty too. I have arthritis in my lower back that also makes my recliner my bed . I got tired of buying one of those recliners made in China that would last me only a year or two. My last new recliner broke after two months, and I made up my mind I was going to buy American made.
I headed over to La-Z-boy in Torrance. The salesman was Derrick and I told him what I was looking for, and he showed me the Crandell. The construction of this chair is way better than what I was used to buying . Solid plywood construction and no staples anywhere that I could see. I got it delivered to me two days later and I've been in heaven ever since. I've never had a chair that was built as well, nor as comfortable as this one. La-Z-boy has it's act together from the understanding my needs, making a high quality product and delivering it when they say they will. Everything about them is what most Americans used to be able to expect from a good retailer. You still can get that and at a good fair reasonable price. Its nice to be able to buy American and know you are buying something of this quality.
