PROS

The Reclining mechanism is equipped with a special limiter, thanks to which you can reduce the angle of reclining of the back - this solution is especially important in the case when you want to take a sitting posture in the chair. Foot rest can withstand high loads and can serve as a pouf.

CONS

Lacquered wood legs are prone to scratches.

OUR VERDICT

This chair is the best fit for office employees who have to sit at the computer for days on end. A massage will relieve pain and discomfort in the back and lumbar region, and a warming massage will be especially pleasant during a cold season.

OUR VERDICT

This chair will definitely appeal to people who like to take a nap while watching TV or reading a book: just set the desired massage time, and it will automatically turn off after you fall asleep.

Total Massaging Experience

A problem that is common with massage recliners is that they often only provide a massage function for a limited area, usually somewhere just along your back. While this may be fine for some people, it does tend to leave many disappointed with the capabilities of massage chairs in general. Fortunately, not all massage chairs have such a limited range, and the HomCom UKA2-00630331 Luxury Leather Recliner Sofa Chair is a great example of this. This massage recliner includes an 8  part massage function that targets most of the areas of your body, providing 8 total massage points, spread across the back, lumbar, thigh, and leg. This makes the chair perfect for those who need those extra massage points, especially on the legs.

As a truly comfortable chair, this model certainly does not disappoint. The upholstery is made of recycled leather that is soft to the touch and comfortable on the skin, and the chair provides enough padding for a comfortable sitting experience. Also included on the chair are two side pockets and two cup holders, letting you keep a drink or two as well as necessary sitting materials on hand. Anyone who needs the massage function to work all over the body instead of just in a limited area of the back will certainly love this chair.

More4Homes (tm) TUSCANY

Perfect for Large People

Many of the smaller framed massage chairs out there have one big drawback to them: they often have a low weight limit, meaning that they tend to get worn out or even broken when a larger person sits in the chair. While that may be fine for those with a small frame, those with a larger frame find their choices limited. The More4Homes TUSCANY Bonded Leather Recliner Massage Chair is the perfect chair for those with larger bodies, as its quite durable frame is made to support those who weigh up to 115 kg. This lets a larger portion of the populace enjoy the comforts of this chair.

This electric massage recliner provides a 2 in 1 experience with a detachable footrest, letting you use the chair as a typical office chair, or as one with a separate footstool, giving you great flexibility in your sitting and reclining experience. The massage functions of the chair are built-in to both the chair and the footrest, and provide a vibrating massage experience for all parts of the body. Unfortunately, this chair does not include a heating function, but this obviously won't be a problem to those who don't need or want it. All in all, this versatile massage recliner with separate footstool is a great experience for people of all sizes.

Recline As You Wish

Most reclining chairs tend to be limited in regards to their reclining ability. They are usually either at a fully upright position, or at a deep reclining position, with no way to adjust the angle of recline. For those who want a reclining chair to serve as an office chair, this simply won't do. The Julian Bowen Malmo Heat Massage Recliner and Footstool Chair solves this problem by providing a reclining function that lets you recline the chair at any angle you want, between the fully upright position and fully reclined position. If you just want a slight recline in the chair, then you can achieve it without a problem.

This massage recliner includes a separate footstool that can attach to the chair, letting you use it as a full recliner with your feet up. The massage capabilities of this chair include 8 different massage points as well as a heater for the lumbar, letting you relax with a heated massage, which is especially useful on a cold day. The upholstery is made of soft touch leather fabric that is comfortable, and the base is walnut laminated, providing a firm frame that is able to withstand years of use. Those who want a comfortable heated massage recliner can find what they want with this model.

A Bright Delight

This cream colour massage chair is a luxurious looking addition to any interior. Where black and brown chairs add a rigourous feel to the vibe, this chair looks calming and fits in with any furniture. Despite its compact design, this massage chair has six massage points and a heater in the backrest, two massage points in the cushion, and two points in the footrest. You can make your custom settings to find the perfect temperature mode and massage pressure level. Even though the construction of this chair looks quite simple, it has an adjustable backrest recliner. It also has a smartly designed swivel base in case you want to use it without the footrest or just like a regular chair.

The compact design of this chair means you can use it like a regular armchair with an opportunity to recline and heat your spine to promote blood circulation. The price doesn't exceed what you would pay for a smartly constructed chair with no massage options. While some people may think the faux leather is less reliable than genuine leather, the opposite is true with this chair. In fact, it is easier to clean and no animals were hurt to make this armchair.

This massage chair comes flat-packed, yet it doesn't take long to assemble. Once you've finished putting it together, you will notice that no excessive parts are left and even the remote controller has its own pocket. The controller itself is absolutely simple and has only 8 buttons with captions that are easy to understand. You will see a body indicator which shows the massage and heating areas enabled but you will definitely feel them yourself in a moment. The swivel base is not noisy and doesn't bother you while you enjoy the relaxation.
