Helpful Review: “I purchased this chair for my 88 year-old mother who suffers from dementia and is no longer capable of learning new skills. I needed a chair scaled to her 5’1″-5’2″ frame and a gentle lift that would allow her to stand up to her walker as she has great difficulty propelling herself upright even from a hard-framed chair. I was very concerned about the lift “ejecting” her too harshly and that a more complex remote with multiple commands definitely be too complicated for her to use.
My handyman brought the boxes into the house and assembled the chair and the electrical connections. He felt the directions were not correct or clear enough, so he did struggle a bit with the electrical connections. I was disappointed that there was not an installation video available that shows how all the different cables are connected, and I could not find a company phone number to get help. This is a weakness with this chair.
Once assembled, we were shocked at how smooth the chair motion is and how easy it is to operate the motion remote control from the fully reclined position to the upright “lift” position. There are just two arrows for direction, one that points up and the other that points down, and they are both lit up bright green. My mother had absolutely no problem operating this simple remote! I know she will not be using the massage/heat remote which is too complex for her and much too noisy.
We stood right next to her in case the movements were brusque, and the tilt mechanism might eject her too harshly, potentially causing her to fall. To the contrary, the motion was slow and incremental, so an elderly person has plenty of time to decide when to stop the motion and control it at any angle. It is the most marvelous chair! My parents are elated, and I am beyond thrilled to have found a chair that my mother can use without any frustration or fear for her safety.
My mother also exclaimed that the chair hugged her perfectly as it is truly designed for a petite woman and not just someone who is larger. This is only our first day, so I hope that it continues to work well in the future. I could not be happier with this purchase! I would, however, ask the manufacturer to produce an assembly video.” – Isabelle Karsh

“I’ve had the COMHOMA Leather Recliner Chair in my game room for about a month now, and it has become my favourite spot to unwind. The black leather finish gives it a luxurious and modern look that instantly enhances the ambiance of my game room.
The chair is incredibly comfortable, with plush cushioning that offers excellent support. The reclining feature is smooth and easy to operate, allowing me to find the perfect position for reading or watching TV. The addition of the 360-degree swivel function brings in an element of versatility that I absolutely love.
The built-in rocker feature is a nice touch, adding to the overall comfort. But what sets this chair apart from others I’ve tried is the heated massage function. It’s fantastic, offering a relaxing experience after a long day of work.
The chair also comes with drink holders, a feature that has proven to be surprisingly convenient during movie nights or sports matches.
Assembling the chair was straightforward, with all the parts and clear instructions included in the package. However, it’s a bit on the heavier side, so you might need some assistance in moving it around.
In terms of size, it’s a substantial piece of furniture, so it might not be suitable for smaller spaces.
In conclusion, the COMHOMA Leather Recliner Chair is a blend of luxury, comfort, and functionality. It’s a solid investment for anyone looking for a high-quality recliner that offers more than just a place to sit.” – XennialLife
NOW READ WHAT MY FRIEND SHAWNA HAD TO SAY:
“We’ve bought our last massage chairs from this company. The quality is decent, delivery was very quick, and they are comfortable. Their customer service is prompt and attentive.
The good: This particular model is very comfortable. We’ve purchased two of them. They are well constructed (see photo) with heaving duty side frames.
The bad: If you are an older person or physically challenged…do not buy. I’ve attached a video that shows how much effort is needed to close the footrest. Both the chairs have the same issue so it appears maybe a design flaw. My wife couldn’t get it closed and I found the only way to close them is to hold the cup holders and slam the footrest in.
What is not shown in the advertisements for this chair is the flimsy plastic handle connected to a bicycle brake line that just sticks out next to the cushion (see photo). This looks like an afterthought.
The bottom line: Aside from the footrest that refuses to cooperate and the lack of a traditional recliner handle, I would purchase this chair again.” – Shawna

“I ordered two of these chairs one for home and one for our summer house. When they arrived I put the first one together right away and it was extremally easy to do. The motor on these are chairs are extremally quite, you can not hear them run at all.
I did run to an issue with the remote wire connections that control the heat and message that didn’t fit together.
After a couple of emails to the seller, they sent out the correct remote and it took two seconds to plug it and we where off and running. very comfortable and the price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend if you are in the market for one of these chairs.” – James Wytrwal
ON TO MY NEIGHBOR MURSE JEFF’S REVIEW:
“Upper part of my chair broke. The company via email [from china] remedied the problem by sending an entire new upper chair in a completely reasonable amount of time [from Georgia] . Problem solved. Exceptional customer service when something went wrong. Seat is reasonably comfortable aside from the hidden massage buzzers which would be ineffective if they had to pad more. I live how the buzzing massage when it stops…
I falling asleep as if I have been soothed to sleep. There are 5 buzz zones…even your legs. Doesn’t recline flat but very close. Many a snooze so far in my chair. Didn’t like the protective liner, sold separately. I got four my shedding dogs. It falls when the chair reclines and became a nuisance.
Save your 35 on that piece. Otherwise happy enough. Probably get less bells and whistles on next chair when I need one. One more note. When my chair broke it was locked in lift position and there was no easy to lower it until the new part arrived. This was confirmed through my email with anj. No manual operation which I think was poor design.” – Murse Jeff

“The chair came early that was great putting it together was easy. Most people will need help getting it in the house. My husband is sleeping in it right now.He loves the massage. I saw that people said it was small, my guy is 6’2 and 250 lbs he fits just fine his feet do hang off the end but not a big deal.
I bought this because he is in a wheelchair and I am having to pull him up to get from a chair back to his wheelchair and that was starting to get me in the back. This is great.. My only thing is and it has nothing to do with the chair is Fedex needs to have a class to show their drivers not to be afraid of a DOORBELL. This chair was left at my garage door it was not due until the next day.
We got up at 5 am to a downpour of rain that morning. I looked on Amazon make sure the chair would still be here on time. It said delivery yesterday…UGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH now I am running to the garage door to fine a soaking wet box. The chair was fine but my bp was not.” – Lori in georgia

“We got this chair for my husband who has back pain. He is able to adjust the chair to a position to help alleviate some of that pain. Shipping was very fast. It was easy to put together. It seems well constructed and solid. The cushions are soft but firm enough that you don’t sink into them.
I sat in it a few times… enough that it put my old worn out recliner to shame… so we bought another one of these today – for me. I’m 5’3 and this size chair fits me perfectly. My feet touch the floor, which is rare with the new gigantic furniture nowadays. The lift mechanism is quiet and the remote is easy to use. The massage is nice with several different settings. The lay flat design is super nice and invites you to take that nap you need…
We ordered the brown chenille fabric – One note about the brown chenille color… The photos for this color make it look like a medium/chocolate brown. What we received is very dark – more like dark cocoa.
I realize that different device screens can make things look different… Not a deal breaker by any means, but I would have liked the lighter brown. I highly recommend this chair.” – Lavender
NOW READ WHAT MY FRIEND KIM HAD TO SAY:
“Bought the Irene House Tall Man electric recliner after going through numerous other chairs over the past 10 years that promised to be designed for tall people but left my calves and ankles drooping over the end.
I’m 5’11” and this recliner fits! With the extender kicked out my heels are on the padding, not dangling over the edge. Added bonus, the lower portion lifts the legs up parallel to the floor, and the top really does recline back into a flat, bed-like position. The back support is great (so far, at least) and the fabric is good quality.
My only wish… some of the hinges and hardware show, and they are plain metal, not even painted. But they’re not unsightly, and every other feature of this chair surpasses my hopes and wishes.” – Kim Lind
