Product description

Description: “A relaxed seating position that can change is a very nice thing to think about,” says renowned designer Jeffrey Bernett. “And bringing the best thinking you can to a problem is exactly what modernism is all about.” When we challenged Bernett and Nicholas Dodziuk to create a recliner that didn’t look like one, they took us on willingly. Armed with experience designing ergonomic in-flight seating for private jets, Bernett knew how to create a comfortable chair with none of the bulkiness or macho pretense of a traditional recliner. Sleek and streamlined, the Flight Recliner (2005) is expertly upholstered with very few seams to suit its clean look. It sports a compact footprint and a patented conversion mechanism that takes it from upright to feet up to full recline with just a slight seated push. Includes your choice of a solid wood or steel sleigh base for stable footing. Backed by a lifetime frame warranty. Made in U.S.A.
Materials: Kiln-dried hardwood frame; steel recline conversion mechanism; unidirectional web suspension; high-density, high-resiliency foam cushions with Dacron® wrap; oak, walnut, stainless steel or powder-coated steel base; fabric or leather upholstery

Concept

“A relaxed seating position that can change is a very nice thing to think about,” says Jeffrey Bernett. “And bringing the best thinking you can to a problem is what modernism is all about.” When we challenged Bernett and Nicholas Dodziuk to create a recliner that didn’t look like a recliner, they took us on willingly. Armed with experience designing ergonomic in-flight seating for private jets, Bernett knew how to create a comfortable chair with none of the bulkiness or macho pretense of a traditional recliner. Sleek and streamlined, the satisfying Flight Recliner (2005) has a compact footprint, and its patented conversion mechanism takes only a slight, seated push to activate. Upright, the Flight functions as a comfortable, streamlined club chair, and it opens in three stages, from feet up to full recline. A steel sleigh base provides stable footing. Lifetime warranty on frame. Made in U.S.A.
