What are you buying?
1. Bonded leather upholstery
Bond leather is a lower-grade type of leather. Unlike real 100% leather, only part of it consists of actual leather. Of course the quality is not the same as that of real leather but bonded leather is still quite durable and wear-resistant. You will be able to use the recliner for years without any ugly tears or fading.
Because of the material used, the chair is easy to maintain. If it gets stained, simply wipe it down with a moist cloth.
2. Foam armrests and pillow backrest
The armrests are padded with soft foam to make sure that even your arms are comfortable. This can be especially helpful if you have a pain problem in your arms or shoulders. You can spend hours on the chair without aggravating the pain.
Another welcome feature is the pillow backrest. It ensures that you sink into a plush seat and lean into a soft and cozy back. Users with back problems say the pillow backrest has been heaven-sent. With most chairs, they would not be able to sit for long. With this recliner, they can spend an entire afternoon in it without any soreness or pain.
This chair focuses a lot on comfort perhaps to make up for the lack of a heating or massage function. But even without the heat, the bonded leather material feels soft and warm to the touch.
3. Good lumbar and back support
To make sure that users receive proper back support, engineers designed the backrest in such a way that it naturally aligns to the natural contours of the spine. You don’t have to strain to be comfortable. This keeps your back healthy, protected and pain-free.
Lumbar and back support is especially important for those with existing back problems. If you are buying this chair for an elderly member of your family or a friend with back problems, the support and comfort provided make a huge difference in their overall health.
4. Electric motor
The chair uses an electric motor to automatically change the back and footrest positions. All you need to do is press a button.
On the downside, you cannot recline the chair if it is not connected to the mains. So if there is ever a power outage, you cannot manually recline it.
How easy is it to use?
The Madison electric recliner chair is incredibly easy to use. The only bit of work you have to do is assembling. It comes in four separate parts. These include the seat and three other parts that make up the back.
Putting everything together is easy and should only take a few minutes. When it is ready to go, just press the button on the side to raise the footrest and recline the back. Press the opposite button to return the chair to normal position.
What accessories are included?
There are no accessories included with this chair nor do you need to buy any.
- Very comfortable thanks to the foam-padded arms, plush bottom and pillow backrest.
- Good back and lumbar support.
- Easy to use.
- It is heavy, making it difficult to relocate it to another position or room.
- No heating or massage function.
Anything else you should know?
The chair has a maximum weight limit of 18st which is around 115kg. This covers most users. But larger-bodied users may find that the seat is uncomfortably narrow (the seat is 40cm in width).
Even without the heated leather or vibrating backrest, the Madison electric recliner remains one of our top recommendations. It performs exceptionally well in both support and comfort. This is not to mention its sturdy built, ease-of-use and durability.
If you just need a simple comfortable chair to sit in, lean back and relax, this is perfect.
