Homelegance Glider Reclining Chair, Brown Bonded Leather Review
Homelegance always used to stand tall and proud over most furniture manufacturers, which is the very reason why they survived since 1984, ploughing through financial crisis and never succumbing to the temptation of making cheaper product with lesser quality. No sir, Homelegance fancied sticking to their roots and their dedication always proved fruitful. That’s why we’re always fond of reviewing a product bearing their name. This time it’s the 9668BRW-1. Sadly, we have to start the review with one bad point – the name. Factory designation is for internal records, not for showroom sales. Your product needs a proper name. If you’re reading this, get your act together Homelegance, this is getting out of hand. Please give your products names that are as good as the products themselves.
With that said, every story should start from the beginning. Ain’t so simple with this one. This is a Homelegance chair, it’s never that simple with them. At first glance, it looks like a luxurious chair that you’re supposed to relax in after a hard day of work. Entirely dressed in lush brown bonded leather, immediately you can see that this isn’t your run of the mill chair though. A knob on the right side gives it out. Rolled arms and channel tufted design will tingle your imagination, bringing forth fantasies of an old wise man sitting in front of a fireplace, reading a book.
This chair has a couple of hidden secrets though. Pull that lever that we mentioned previously and the chair reclines, lifting your feet up so that you can finally have that rest you’ve worked for so hard. It sure feels good when all that effort pays off as you indulge into a soft, welcoming hug in this chair, trusting it to take care of all your stress and end your day in a relaxing sigh, sipping on a drink that warms your throat. When you’ve had enough of reclining though, lift yourself up and the chair will turn to a glider chair, slowly and smoothly rocking your worries and problems into oblivion.
If you happen to fancy this chair as much as we do, you’ll be happy to know that Homelegance also makes matching loveseats and sofas, so the chair won’t look out of place. The leather is easy to clean and all mechanisms are solid steel, very much bulletproof and guaranteed to handle any weight you throw at them. The size isn’t lacking either, regardless how big or tall you are the chair will envelop you comfortably with no body part being left out of utmost luxury.
There is a strange attraction in these gliding chairs and we never figured if it’s the motion reminding us of our parents rocking us in their arms or if it’s the big seat where we feel cocooned and safe. It always looks so inviting even if you’re the hyperactive type. You can’t help but lie down in it and surrender yourself to fantasies, an escape from the real world that everyone needs so sorely these days.
