Opinions on Lazy Boy or Palliser Recliners


I am looking for a new recliner for myself.  I have narrowed it down to a Lazy Boy Pinnacle in leather or a Palliser (online from sofas&sectionsals.com ).  The Pallisers are made in Canada and the chairs measurements are the same as the Pinnale.   I can get the Palliser wallhugger with power recline for the same price as the Lazy Boy rocker recliner without power.

I am concerned about reviews I've read about both of these chairs.  I know most people only write reviews when they are unhappy about a purchase, so I'm asking if anyone who has either of these chairs can give me some feedback.  Do you have a wallhugger or regular recliner and what problems if any have you had with the chairs. 

Thanks for your help.

We bought a lazy boy wall hugger loveseat recliner this spring to replace our 6 year old sofa. I love the fact that you don't have to move it forward to make room to recline. I set it up once and it stays in place. I'd guess it weights a bit more than the sofa as the lazy boy is an all metal frame....and the sofa was built of very light weight wood. The back comes off on ours, and I believe all lazy boys, which made it easy to get it through the door and into our 5th wheel. It broke apart into three pieces, the bottom seat section and two back pieces. It sits in the living room slide out. So now we can recline while watching TV or reading.  We love ours.

Best of luck with your decision.

Lance

We have had three Pinnacle recliners - two in leather. I happen to like them a lot and they fit both of us pretty well. I use a footstool with the ones I had, since I'm 6'2". I like the recline feature without kicking up the footrest...works well with a footstool. All were well made without issues. And they are narrow enough for RV use, but still have a roomy seat. I have no experience with the other brand you mention - but one thing to watch out for with automated recliners is that you have no ability to affect how they recline - when the footrest comes out, etc. So make sure that you have operated one and understand it before buying.

I've had lower back problems for many years (protruding disks at three levels with pinched nerves). Over a period of 25 - 30 years, I went through a series of recliners trying to find something that I could sit in for more than 15 minutes without having to get up. Most were La-Z-Boys - even had a leather La-Z-Boy recliner sofa. I was never comfortable on anything for any period of time until I purchased an Ekornes Stressless swivel recliner. These come in a myriad of different styles and three different sizes. I can sit in the thing for hours reading or using the laptop (I have the swiveling laptop table on it) without pain. I've also seen them in several RVs since I learned what they were. I highly recommend them. (Note - I'm retired Army and work in health care... no connection to Ekornes at all.)

We have a wall hugger from Lambright Comfort Chairs, http://issuu.com/shopach/docs/lcc-catalog.  Really comfortable and well made.  If you are spending time in northern Indiana you can order direct and get them yourself.  It is an Amish family business.

I have no knowledge of the Palliser recliners, so I'm no help there.  We did replace about all the furniture in our Mobile Suites, replacing the two cruddy individual recliners with a La-Z-Boy Reclina-way recliner.  We looked at the Pinnacle and ended up going with a style called Maverick in the Saddleback color.  However, we aren't fans of leather seating, so ours is fabric.  I'm wanting to think that the Pinnacle was not as wide as our Maverick, so ours sits in the slide.  We do push it back against the wall for travel, but only have to pull it out a few inches for reclining.  We chose the Maverick style because Jo's feet could reach the floor easier.

We are both very pleased with the La-Z-Boy products, and I'm happy of how "flat" I can get when reclined for a nap.

You look pretty comfy Terry!
We noticed when we were going in most RVs on a recent discovery trip, that most of the furniture was not residential type, comfortable. Especially recliners. Mostly because Rex and I are both tall and they all seem small scale. We actually liked the Montana best that day because it's theater unit was long enough for us!
Having said all that it seems like replacing the furniture is something most people do anyway!

Today John and I drove to Fremont, which is south of San Francisco, to pick up my E-Bay score of a LaZBoy leather power recliner rocker.  I was so fortunate to find a new, with tags attached, recliner that the owner purchased and then never used because she decided she didn't like sitting on leather.  It is in absolutely mint condition, and I paid 25% of the price of a new one from the LaZBoy store.

Both are nice recliners…but you should buy the one you find most comfortable. Either will last pretty well and the wall hugger type is generally better for RV use. We have Lazy Boys and also had them in our house before we hit the road.

If I was doing it again I would get a Stressless…it was just way more comfortable when I sat in one. They cost more…but I would pay it.

I like my Ekornes Stressless recliner. Expensive, I admit, and Judy is less a fan than I. But my aging back craves the coddling.

The key to any of the recliners is to sit in them. I went to buy a Stressless....given the reputation and hype. I fond them WAY uncomfortable for ME. I ended up buying a custom made Norwegian recliner that I like far more. And it cost less, believe it or not.

I agree Jack.  When I first sat in the Stressless I thought it was very nice.  But I got out my Kindle (I always bring it with me when trying out chairs since I do a lot of reading in my chair) and just couldn't get the right position.  The arms seemed too low and my neck wasn't comfortable.  I guess that's why there are so many different kinds of recliners since everyone's fit needs are different. 

What brand did you end up ordering?  I'm extremely happy with my LaZBoy Classic( the model QVC sells which is just a bit larger than the Pinnacle) leather power recliner.  My husband remarked yesterday he had never seen me spend so much time in a chair before. I'm usually crashed out on the couch.  I'm thrilled I found such a great chair at a great price.

We are ready beyond words to replace the jack knife sofa in our '99 Allegro. That couch is not comfortable and we find ourselves retreating to the bedroom to comfortably watch a movie.
I'm unsure about those recliners on Amazon, they have mixed reviews and it's a gamble if you are going to be comfortable.
We are open to the idea of a comfortable couch with recliners.

 Aren't there requirements that the couches in a motorhome also have seat belts?  Of course, except at resale time, that may not ever be a factor for you.
