Don’t let the ‘real leather’ term fool you. This recliner is pretty and elegant but it is not made from real leather. As you will see in the manufacturer specifications, the chair is made from bonded leather, a fabric containing only few bits of actual leather.
But that doesn’t stop the Windsor Electric Recliner Chair from being one of the best automatic recliners we have ever reviewed. The bonded leather material is actually not so bad. You will find it easy to clean and it will last for quite a while. So if you don’t mind the lack of real leather there are plenty more features you are going to love.

What are you buying?
1. Rise and recline function
The chair is equipped with a motor that drives the reclining function. Just press a button on the control handset and the backrest reclines backwards. The footrest can also be raised to a horizontal position for the perfect snooze.
The best part comes when you press the button to resume normal position. You can return the chair to its normal upright position or you can keep pressing to get it to rise even further. This is a big plus for senior users who may have trouble getting up from the chair. The raised position makes it much easier to stand up.
If you have an elderly friend or member of the family for whom you want to buy a recliner chair, we highly recommend this one. It will go a long way in making their lives easier and more independent.
2. Available in 3 colours
The recliner is available in three colours: black, cream and brown, which I would say is the most elegant. All of them are very stylish thanks to the modern design and luxurious leather-like surface.
Whatever colour you choose, it will make a great addition to any room not just in terms of function but also aesthetics.
3. Very comfortable
Many users describe the chair as soft and plush but not too soft that it feels like you’ve sank into a swamp. It is soft enough to be comfortable but still retains some firmness for support. The arms and back are padded for added comfort, ensuring you can spend hours on the chair without getting sore.
How easy is it to use?
When the Windsor Electric Armchair is delivered, it will be in two boxes. One box holds the base while the other contains the backrest. The boxes are quite heavy (42kg total weight) so you might want to have an extra set of hands around to help you set it up.
Assembling the recliner takes only a couple of minutes. Use the accompanying product manual for instructions. Once you have connected the two parts, all you need to do is plug it in and you are good to go.
One easily overlooked bonus of this chair is the movable control gadget. It is connected to the chair using a cord and you can move it to your left or right side. Most people prefer the right side because you can tuck into a pocket. The left side has no pocket so it will remain hanging. As one customer noted, her husband is glad for the flexibility since he cannot use his right side.
Operating the seat is easy. The control gadget has only two buttons, one for reclining the chair and raising the footrest and the other for returning the chair to its normal position or raising it to a standing position.
What accessories are included?
There are no accessories that come with the chair nor do you need to buy any.
- Comes with a riser as well as recliner function. This is helpful for those whom getting up from a chair is a challenge.
- Stylish modern design.
- Easy to clean material.
- Very comfortable.
- No heating or vibration functions.
- Not real leather.
What accessories are included?
This chair has a surprisingly higher weight limit than most recliners. While most cap the allowable body weight at 18st (115kg), this one can support users who weight as much as 23st or 145kg.
The riser function makes this recliner great for elderly users. They can sit and get up from it without requiring assistance. The easy-to-use buttons make for a frustration-free experience. The chair also comes in handy if you or someone you know is ill and needs a comfortable place to relax.
