Default Recliners for big folks?

Does anybody out there have any leads on recliners for big folks?

I got mine @ Wicks Furniture of all places. They told me they had one built for big loads -- the same one Shaq had when he was with the Lakers in LA. I am not in California right now, so I can't tell you the make/model, but it handles my big self with ease for about 2 years now... but it did cost me just under $1000.

However, if you are under about 6 feet, you legs will likely dangle like a 6 year old on it.

I found that your request is quite easy. There's almost one "Big Man's" Recliner in every furniture company.

Use Google images: "big recliner"

and you'll find hundreds!

Yeah, I did that along with a couple other variations like "Heavy duty". A lot of them came up, but most were not very big when the actual dimensions were examined, and little or no info on how they were constructed.

We found out the hard way some years back, that just because they say things like "Big and tall", it does not mean that they are constructed for it. We paid a couple thousand dollars for a sectional/recliner couch that was supposed to be a "Big man" version...it did not last much beyond the year warranty, before it started coming apart. Before we pitched it, I tore it apart, and some of the framing was actually nothing more than multi-layer laminated cardboard...not even plywood.

I was hoping that some of the folks here had run across durrable ones.

My hubby and I bought two fat-man recliners two-years ago. It came with the massagers and everything.

I enjoy my arse massager immensely, but since having my chair, I have developed a bad back. I think the back issue comes from other issues, but I am almost 100% certain the chair doesn't help.

Since my surgery, I have been unable to sleep in my bed, (something that will be changing soon, because I am buying an adjustable bed) so this chair has helped me tremendously in that department!
The only thing is, because it gets a lot of usage, it has lost a lot of its shape. I got the Lazy Boy big boy's chair w/massager and heat.

If you can get out of buying an easy chair, I would encourage it. I just feel it isn't good for posture or one's back health.

Good luck to you!!

Zandoz,

I have the big and tall recliner made by LazyBoy and love love love it!! I've had it between 5-6 years and it's held up remarkably well, and I use it ALOT. Sometimes I have trouble sleeping when I am sick so end up sleeping in the chair rather than bed and it's held up really, really well. I can't remember the name of this model and went to LazyBoy's website and still can't pick it out, but online they all look the same to me. As of a year ago, they still were selling in my area so I don't think they've discontinued - at least I hope not!!!! Oh and I paid $499

I hope this helps ya, I couldn't live without my recliner.

edited to add: I looked again and the Atlas model looks to be the closest to what I have.

A few years ago, I was having some back trouble. My husband found a lift recliner with a 500 pound capacity from Med-lift. I cost over $1000, but I love it, and often still sleep in it.

Sears has a nice massage/recliner and it is great for me. It is a pretty super size chair as I don't fill the whole seat and I am 431 pounds.
This chair costs about $500.00 but it is well worth it for the comfort.

Zandoz, I bought a great recliner for my ex a few years ago. It was purchased at the Sear's Homeplace store and made by Lane for big folks with a heavy steel frame. It's seriously heavy duty and huge. I think it cost about $600. He always joked that it was big enough for him and a cat on each side. I've always hated recliners but loved this one.

I am pretty sure that that is the one that I have, but my three cats share mine with me and there is still room to share.

So far I've not had any luck tracking down anything on the Sears/Lane big recliners.

Here are a few options we're considering...has anyone had any experiance with these?

Default My Recliner

I own this one. Bought it for about $800 at a place called Wickes Furniture (Maybe just Wicks). I have abused it with my 300 - 400 lbs for about 3 years with no wear or compression at all. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I was told by a friend who is a Personal Assistant in LA, that Shaq owned this one while he lived in LA with the Lakers - that is how I knew to look for it.

Lane Magnitude

I have a big friend who swear by his below... also a Lane.

Lane Comfort King

Best,
EB

I've run across several Lanes on line, that I like, but the problem is finding a local furniture store that is not of the "if you have to ask the price, you shouldn't be shopping here" variety. No Wicks furnitures that I know of around here...Wicks around here is a lumber yard chain.

Lane is carried at large Dept Stores like Dillards or Lazarus... a little high end, but well worth the money. I used to go through recliners every 2 years...

All the stores at this link sell them in your area... call, ask if they carry the model and get the price. Worst case you waste an hour. Best case, someone hooks you up.

Cincy Lane's Dealers

Either way, good luck!

Thanks! The Lazarus and Dillards ones kind of fall into the category I mentioned. Hopefully we'll be making the store rounds soon and check out some of the others.

No worries on the Steeler's things...some of my dearest friends are Steeler's fans...LOL. Basically I root for the Bengals by default of location....not a big football fan.

Hi again Zandoz,

I can't comment on your selections specifically but did want to mention that I've found it best to shy away from any recliners or couches with recliners that have the push-button rather than the lever. I have round the push button doesn't work most of the time and doesn't hold up under pressure. The lever action guarantees you are up and locked into place.

Ok back to my lurking around.

Thanks for the heads up. I had not thought of that...and it seems most of the ones we've been looking at are the push-button ones... it figures...LOL

Here's my question: How do you use a recliner with cats in the house? See that space under the foot part? Mine would be in that in a flash. Then someone rings the doorbell, close it quickly to get up, an hour later you're wondering where kitty is. Or at least that's the scenario in my brain.

Cat sits on recliner. Human uses floor. That's how it works in my place.

Edited to say that my brother and sister-in-law just have a really fat cat who can't even fit under the bed, so recliners aren't an issue.

About 7 years ago, Guy and I bought a Lazy Boy double recliner sofa. Jeez, I love this thing. It is roomy and comfy (room for both of us and room to spare), and has lasted well. After having my knee injury and surgery last summer, I ended up on the recliner (a lot!!), as I could keep my braced leg - up and straight all the time (which was necessary).

Anyway, the double recliner sofa, which looks like a larger version of a love seat, is a great way to go for big folks.

Honestly I just sit in the recliner. I don't lean back in it. Although bigger cats are at least a little crush proof, I always have kittens running around.
