The Ultimate Made To Measure Chair
The bespoke riser recliner chair is handmade to measure here in the UK, and comes with a choice of designer fabrics, choice of eight different backrests, six different bases, single motors, dual motors, lay flat and tilt in space, plus other options such as washable arm rest covers, memory and pressure cushions, heat and massage etc.
The fabrics you choose are from UK designer ranges such as Ross Fabrics and Christina Marrone Fabrics, you can choose plain, floral, stripes, check, or a combination and ‘two tone’ your chair at no extra cost – call into our showroom and you’ll see some we have commissioned to show you what you can do. Matching chairs, sofa’s available. No two chairs are ever the same, even his ‘n’ hers, unless you happen to be the same size, and choose the same back and base! Should you wish to go ahead delivery and installation in your home is normally 2 to 3 weeks from order.
Single Motor Wall-Hugger: This is a very clever design allowing the chair to sit just 3 – 4 inches from a wall, and yet still recline. The whole chair moves gently forward once your feet have been lifted, then the backrest goes back into what we call the TV Position. When you want it to rise the button that puts your footrest down, and once away, also picks you up, you can stop at any height you wish, or go all the way. (please see Jubilee Chair for single motor video)
Dual motor: Allows the backrest and footrest to be moved independently of each other. Once again the button that puts your feet down picks you up (but only when your feet are firmly back on the ground)
An important feature of the chair is the relationship between the footrest and seat. When the footrest is raised it is higher than the seat, this clever piece of design helps reduce or eliminate water retention to the feet and ankles.
TIS Dual Motor: suggested by Occupational Therapists for certain conditions, the TIS action takes pressure off and keeps the body in the same position on initial recline
The bespoke prices start at £1295 for the single motor wall-hugger, with your choice of proper British designer fabrics. Come along and see them, and try for yourself. Should you wish to progress you can borrow some designer fabric swatches to enable a match to other furnishings, carpets etc.
Because we aren’t all the same size, these riser recliner chairs are made to measure. Why is this so important?
Seat width, if a chair width is too wide we all tend to compensate by sitting sideways on it, resting against one of the arms. This is probably ok for an active person who’s getting up and down for cups of tea etc. but for someone spending a lot of time in the chair it is clearly wrong, as this bad posture will cause aches and pains, and potentially longer term damage.
Seat height is important for spreading the load, easing pressure. If the height is too low then ones knees tend to be quite high, leaving a gap where support should be, the body weight is spread over a smaller area, thus increasing pressure. If the height is too high there will be too much pressure under the knee potentially causing blood flow problems for the user.
Seat depth is another important factor dictating posture and pressure displacement. If the depth is too deep then the user will feel the chair pushing into the calf, automatically we compensate by moving forwards, of course as soon as we do this we will notice curvature of the spine, which is a really poor posture position. If the seat depth is too short, then we see the body weight being distributed over a smaller area, again increasing pressure with potential risks of further aches, pains or ulcers.
Back height is not as important or critical as the three measurements mentioned earlier, but really helps with comfort when positioning the head to a particular part of a cushion for example.
