I found a Lane recliner at the dump... after bracing the cracked wooden support underneath the seat back together, it's as good as new, and very comfy. Boring blue fabric, nothing really stylish or modern looking about it. You might see if Lane is in your price range (or is the moving company paying for it?)...

Thanks for the reply. I am not too terribly worried about price as the fellow who moved the furniture is going to pay half. (No moving companies in the BVI though).
The furniture was rather worn and nothing special ... but I did warn him at the time he loaded it that it was not properly secured and that if he gave me 15 minutes (I am a wizzard with knots), I would redo the way he had them tied down. He didn't want to take the time and, well ...
I found the Lane site, but they have no photos at all on their site. I tried to download their PDF files and encountered one error after another. No joy. Their stuff "sounds" interesting though!
Any other suggestions?

The best recliner I ever had was a La-z-yboy. One that rotates and also has a lever on the side to bring up the foot rest. It can't take kids playing 'king of the mountain' and spinning each other in it though. They destroyed the bearings and the reclining mechanism so it fell over if someone sat in it. Was good as toast after 15 years of abuse.
Have you thought of a hammock? :)

The Lane is the only recliner I ever owned... I don't remember the brand of the recliners my boyfriend used to own, but they were very similar to the one I found. I'll ask him if he remembers.
<added>He said they matched set were La-z-boy... but he wouldn't necessarily recommend them. Don't know why, they seemed fine to me.</added>

Thanks guys ... guess I'll just have to stick with La-z-boy afterall. A hammock won't work :) ... no back support! The other sites I've looked at offer very weird and wonderful chairs ... but a tad too modern for my taste.

I have a recliner that my wife's tried to throw out several times. I finally put it back in my office where I can keep an eye on it. Don't know the manufacturer, but it has a button on the right instead of a handle. Press the button, it releases a magnet, and the footrest pops right up. Like it much better than the handle.
