Slightly off topic-but not...

So I have been trying to sway the wife towards the fusion escape chairs for the basement. I have had ZERO progress until today.On a separate but related note, we have a 3 month old boy as well. She has been trying to convince me to change from disposable diaper's to cloth diaper's. She has had ZERO progress until today.

You can probably see where this is going. She offered to compromise and let me buy my seats IF I compromise and make the change to cloth diaper's.

I told her that bribery like this is illegal...but I'm about to concede and call Roman...

What would you guys do?

worst case scenario- the escapes will last for at last for a least the 5 year warranty and you are done with diapers in 3-4 years.

best case- you still have the escapes when your child goes to college and your wife tires of cloth diapers in a month

get the chairs- I wish I would have went with the escapes. I covet that electric headrest my Lagoons are lacking.

haha. Good points.

Do you wish you had the Electric headrest(escape) or just an adjustable headrest(tribute)? I'm now considering the tribute as well, just need to get more feedback and opinions.

Getting my set of Escapes tomorrow and will have them set up on Friday. I will be able to give you my impressions on the weekend. Most everything I have read is positive on the whole line but Escapes are the top dog apparently.

Awesome. Look forward to hearing from you. Did you go bonded or reg leather?

Yeah I've read the fusion thread 2 or 3 times, seems like everyone loves their escapes. With the free warranty on the tributes, I'm on the fence if its worth the extra $$ for the escapes and then having to buy the warranty.

It really only takes a second to adjust the headrest on the tributes, probably quicker than the power of the escapes. Also, some have said the drink cooler on the escapes doesn't work that well, plus cooler glowing light that cannot be turned off. I could not justify the price difference. The 5 year warranty won me over for the tributes. Good luck it's hard not being able to test them out in person.

I can manually adjust the mini pillows my wife made in my Lagoons. I want E-L-E-C-T-R-I-C

Just got mine set up and they are very comfortable. Infinite positions available with the power recline and power headrest. The quality looks very good and they are not made of partical board like some other furniture. I am impressed with them for the price point and wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.
I will post some pics of the underside etc. tomorrow after my company leaves.

OK. I am back with a few minutes to spare.
I received my 4 Fusion Escapes last Wednesday and got them set up Friday night.
I bought them in black leather / match in a curved configuration.
They came well packed in cardboard boxes followed by plastic wrapping and then a soft fabric covering.
There is a dessicant inside in a pouch to absorb any moisture along the way.
They come in two parts, with the back detached and laid across the seat for little shifting in transit.
You just open the box and tip it over so you can slide the chair out on it's secondary cardboard insert out right side up.
Any ways, the stitching was very well done and the construction is a steel frame for the mechanism with plywood construction instead of the usual cheap partical board.
They seem to be very sturdy and the mechanism opens and closes very smoothly. They are quiet and look better than the website pictures.
A vinyl flap on the back is velcroed along the bottom for access to the power cord (which is 11' 6" long on the one I measured).
The side arm storage compartments are held open/ closed by a small hydraulic ram and are attached by heavy duty hinges.
Here are some pictures of the stitching, mechanism and construction etc. for you.
If you have any questions ask away and I will see if I can answer them for you.

Oh yeah, the seats are firm but very comfortable. 3 out of 4 people fell asleep in the movie on Saturday night.
I would definitely buy them again. They are an excellent value for the price.

The pictures aren't the best but...
