Short, Active Person's Nightmare
We bought this chair because I am short and the chair I tried in the store seemed fine. It did not sit as high and huge as this chair. If I recline, I feel like I'm on a surgical table suspended in the air, immobilized. And it takes 5 minutes to get out of the chair if the doorbell rings! The head cushion shoves my head forward and I cannot settle in. (I am short).
I hate it!!! In fact, we are going to go buy me an Amity this weekend and this horrible chair is being relegated to a corner of the formal living room where nobody sits. It's like brand new and we've had it over a year. I guess if I'm ever an invalid, it might suffice. But, not yet!!!

Lift chair hunt
I was shopping for a replacement for my previous LaZboy "Luxury Lift" chair. My previous chair was of the single motor, 3 position type of lift chair. My back problems not require being able to independantly adjust the footrest and back of the chair. There are few chairs with this feature available. Nothing that I read in the available information on LaZboy's latest lift chair design indicated that they had this feature. I happend to read in an online forum, that the new "Luxury Lift" chairs had this independant motion. After visiting sales locations for "Pride", "Golden Tech" and "la Z boy" lift chairs, I decided the best quality was the La Z boy design and I have purchased a Clayton. Hopefully, others wanting this same type of design will read this review and discover, as I did, that the latest "Luxury Lift" chairs incoporate this function. La Z boy builds a great lift chair. Their literature and online information should be updated to specify how thier new design actually functions. In my case, if I had not stumbled onto it, I would have had no reason to actually go see their new design. I'm now glad I did, as in my opinion, theirs is the best lift chair on the market.
