The Hainworth Leather recliner chair is electric with a button on the side to easily recline the backrest and raise the footrest. To make your experience even more relaxing, there is an 8-point massage function included. That’s not all. You can also press a button to activate the heat, a big plus for those with aching muscles and joints.
If you are looking for a recliner that is not short of ways to help you relax, this is it.

What are you buying?
1. Automatic recliner
The electric motor makes it really easy to operate the chair. Using the button fixed on the right side, you can put the recliner in the most comfortable position for you. When you press it, the footrest rises first then the back begins to recline. You can release the button at any point when the back gets to your preferred position.
The recline position is great when you want an afternoon snooze or when you need to stretch your legs. Getting the chair back to normal position is just as easy using the button.
Unfortunately, this chair does not come with a riser function. If you are looking for a recliner that rises forward to help someone stand up, this is not it. It has two positions only: normal and reclined.
2. Heat and vibration massage
To make sure that you are completely relaxed, the Hainworth recliner comes with two additional features: heat and vibration massage.
With a click of a button on the remote, the backrest transforms into a heated pad. It feels incredibly comfortable and can be especially helpful if you have back problems. It also comes in handy during the cold months of the year.
Using the same remote, you can turn on an 8-point vibration massage system. There are two vibration points on your shoulders and upper back, two at the lumbar area, two on the seat and two on your legs. So wherever you have an ache or are feeling sore, the massage will help.
The vibration and heat functions are especially helpful for elderly users with limited mobility. They help improve blood circulation and keep muscles functioning.
3. Bonded leather exterior
Note that this is not a real leather recliner despite what the seller calls it. It is actually bonded leather, a type of lower-grade leather with only a few bits of actual leather in it. These bits are held together with a polyurethane coating. The coating is then given a leather-like look and texture.
But that is not to mean that you shouldn’t spend your money on it. Even with bonded leather, this recliner is still very durable. Some customers have had it for more than 4 years without any tear or fading. It is also easy to maintain, which is a good thing if you are buying it for an elderly family member or friend.
How easy is it to use?
There are two ways to operate the recliner. The first is by using the button on the right side. Pressing it operates the backrest and the footrest. The second is by using the remote control that comes with the package. The remote contains buttons for the vibration and heat functions.
Generally, the chair is easy to operate and if you have any problem, you can contact the seller for advice.
The only bit of work involved is assembling the chair when it arrives. Because it is heavy, make sure there is someone around to help you put the two pieces (base and backrest) together. It should only take a couple of minutes.
What accessories are included?
The only accessory included is the remote control. It comes with batteries.
- Great looking design
- Comes with heat and vibration massage.
- Easy to use.
- No riser function.
- A bit heavy
Anything else you should know?
The manufacturer specifies an 18st weight limit. This translates to around 115kg. The weight limit is lower than that of some recliners but still high enough to cover most users.
Having the riser feature would have been nice especially for elderly users. But the Hainworth recliner still scores highly thanks to its ultra-comfortable padding, heated backrest and 8-point massage system. There is also no denying its stylish design.
