Every person that went past their prime knows the struggle of getting up after sitting in the same position for a long time.
If you have severe arthritis, even the simple act of putting pressure on your knees is painful for you. Not to mention the pain that you get if you stay with your knees in the same position for a prolonged time.
In this case, a lift chair may as well be your savior from all that pain. Instead of having to get on your feet by yourself, these types of chairs will do the lifting for you. And in this respect, the Coaster Home Furnishings proved to be a very good ally.
This lift chair comes in many colors that you can choose from, and it’s the perfect acquisition for people who want more than the usual, boring brown or black.
The fabric is very soft chenille – which is pretty much a type of yarn that feels like velvet to the touch. It’s a budget option – but one that promises durability and comfort.
The cushioning is also very soft and will enable prolonged sitting without feeling the slightest discomfort. The footrest also lifts up as the back reclines so that you may be able to rest in a horizontal position.
This chair has a practical side pocket in which you can store various small objects – the remote control, your cell phone, anything. It’s very convenient if you have things around you, but you don’t want to keep bumping into them. Some notable features:
It may not recline into a fully horizontal position (only 20 inches away from its original position), but it will still provide a very comfortable napping place during the afternoon.
I bought this lift chair because I have a very bad form of arthritis that leaves me heaving each time I try to get up.
I’m that type of person who cannot get up too easy because my knees hurt, but also can’t stay in the same position for long because – get this – my knees hurt.
To be honest, I was surprised by the quality and how soft the fabric felt to the touch. Considering that it is yarn, I expected it to be a bit rough to the touch, but it was the exact opposite; it was so soft, it felt like I was literally touching velvet.
It was effortless to set up; in just a few minutes I was already relaxing in the chair. It may have been a better fit if I was slightly wider (I’m 5’8” and have 170 lbs), but nonetheless, it’s very comfortable.
It’s a lot better than many lift chairs I have seen that are sold at a higher price. It’s not too soft, nor too hard, and it gives me the support that I need while still being super comfy.
Plus, it’s very quiet, so it won’t wake up the whole neighborhood each time I want to lift myself from the chair.
A lot of reviews that I read talked about the efficiency of the chair as well as its comfort.
A lot of people even use it as a bed, even though it’s slightly elevated. Overall, they are all satisfied by its aspect, its efficiency, and its ability to provide comfort.
There have been, however, people that complained about its durability. A few people bought this chair only to realize that the motor has broken down after a few months.
I especially liked the cushioning of this lift chair: it wasn’t too soft, but it wasn’t too stiff either. For me, it was just right.
I also liked the fabric, that’s more durable than the standard suede. I’ve had this chair for a little while now, and I found it to be pretty resistant to dirt and damage.
So far, I haven’t had any issues with this chair, other than the fact that I could have used an inch or two more on it – and the fact that you cannot activate the footrest and backrest separately.
However, taking into consideration the reviews of other people as well, perhaps they might want to work on the motor to increase its durability.
There are several places from where you can buy this lift chair, and the price is just a little over $500 – which is very convenient if you ask me.
You might want to go to Amazon to get it since you have free shipping and all the chances of getting a pretty good discount if you catch the product at the right time. I got one when I purchased it, which saved me about $70 of the original price.
The chair comes with a 5-year warranty for the mechanical part, so if it does end up breaking down, you are covered. If you pay an extra fee to Amazon, you may even be able to extend that warranty.
Considering the price that I paid for it, this chair is quite good. The fabric in which it’s covered is obviously high quality, and the mechanism is powered – so you won’t have to be pushing any swivels to get it going.
It’s comfortable, practical, and does a very good job. Even small details like the side pockets make me believe the purchase was worth it. I’m going to buy another one for my mother who is almost 75 years old and could use one herself.
