I strongly feel furniture serves as the backdrop for our lives. It can help or hinder the level of comfort at home, at work, and even while vacationing.


  1. I have a terrible time finding a recliner to fit my small frame. I’m 4’10” and the seat height from the floor is only part of the problem. a major factor for comfort is seat depth. Even 20 inches is too deep for me to scoot back and have good lumbar support. and a push back mechanism is too difficult. I need a lever at the least to recline the back. Can you recommend a fabric covered recliner for someone as short as me?

  2. I was hoping the links in the names of the chairs would lead to a page with additional information on the chair, or possibly even a review. However, each link for the chairs appears to link to this page. I can search the names, but perhaps changing the link destinations would be helpful and improve your site flow.
