I haven't picked mine up yet - they are waiting at a depot for me smile.gif
Has anyone else received their Jive seating yet?
This is a new design so I would love to hear some feedback.......

Looks like once you get them, you'll be the one to fill everyone in wink.gif Definitely will be watching this thread since I'm considering the Lagoons myself, but these would give me a couple more inches of space in my room. Fill us in once you get them and have them set up.

I have received mine. They are VERY nice! Here is a pic of the Jives in the front and the Tributes in the back.

136.jpg

They are a little shorter than the Tributes - which is actually good since my feet do not touch the ground when I sit on the Tributes. The Tributes are cooshier - which I like better. The Jives are VERY comfortable, recline smoothly, and you do not notice the thinner width at all. They are VERY good chairs.

Mine are power recline and real leather - I REALLY recommend the power recline, it is worth it. smile.gif

Be warned the boxes are about 3' X 3' X 3' cubes - VERY large and heavy!.

Still liking the Jive's? I may be getting them as they are narrower and I can use the |o|o|o|o| formation opposed to the |o|oo|o|. Or maybe the misses would rather the love seat middle for the fronts.

Yes I am. All my guests love the chairs and say they could easily sleep in them. They are definately wide enough and cushy enough for my "American sized" middle aged friends. smile.gif

Now you mention how they are shorter than the Tribute, now how is that in relation in regards to head support. 235 mentioned in his build thread how himself being only 5'6" that he liked the Jive's head support but thinks if someone taller may not like it as much. How tall are you and in relation to your Tribute vs Jive for example how does this compare for you. I see you like the closeness to the ground of the Jive, but what about the upper body comparison with the 2 chairs? Myself I am 6' so this is defintely something I am concerned with. Because I love the fact that the Jive would be a narrower footprint for my HT, but at the same time I cannot compromise on overall comfort of course. Man I wish you guys live a lot closer to me smile.gif

What I meant by height was the height of the seat cushion from the floor. When I sit on the Jives, my feet touch the floor. When I sit on the Tribues, my feet are around 6 inchess off the floor. Normally that would bother me, but I always raise the footrest anyway. Also, the extra 6 inches of seat cusion height helps me see over the front row better. smile.gif

The seat backs are plenty tall. I am 5'9" and my head comfortably hits the headrest portion of the seat back. When I recline, it gets longer due to the angles changing, so there is more room open. My only complaint is due to my setup - I am using two loveseat arrangements. This means each chair only gets one arm. The problem is if you are going to use the tray AND the cup holder - the tray covers the cup holder unless you angle it just right. Not a big deal, as I just place the tray on my lap anyway.

Schloob1,

Just for your reference one of the most successful and best selling Berkline recliners - 45090 had 41" high back, and I have customers from 5' 8" to 6' 2" who were quite happy with that.

The Jive-1013 has 41.5" high back.

I suppose aside from height the weight of the occupant could make even more of a difference. Heavier people would sink more into the base of the chair making the head support align higher.

What is the width of this configuration? I'm trying to decide if I can get away with this for my back row.

It should be 109" wide for straight configuration and 115.25" for curved one.

Excellent. Thanks Roman! I'm sure I'll be contacting you in the next month or so.

I am wondering what would account for the six inches difference, since the seat heights are not six inches different. Is the Tribute a deeper seat and that somehow creates that much difference?

Brian,

I have responded to this in the other thread:
Quote:
The overal depth on Tribute-1015s is bigger because of the shape of the armrest. The Tribute-1015 arm actually fully covers the seat and slightly sticking out in the front.

The Tribute-1015 seat depth is comparable with the Escape-1019 the seat depth on the Escape-1019 is just 1/2" bigger).

The Tribute seat depth is about 23", and the Escape - 23.5"

FYI: Seat depth on the Jive-1013 is 22.75"

Ugh, just noticed my "work in progress" picture. Here is a nicer one, showing the Jives in front and Tributes in back. I have removed the white blinds from behind the Tributes. I just received my black out curtain, so I will be putting the white blinds behind it (towards the glass of the window) and the blackout blind on the inside. My HOA says I have to have white or off white blinds at the windows. smile.gif

I think it is the angle of the seat...it is puffier by the knees, which raises them up some.

Looks great. I am curious about the comfort between the two models. Would you say they are much different?

They feel slightly different but both are very comfortable. The first thing people tell me when they fully recline the Jives is that they could easily sleep on them. I have slept on them myself (when I had a house full of guests) and you can easily get a good night sleep provided you are not one of those who toss and turn during sleep. smile.gif

I purchased four Jive's from Roman and they are great, unfortunately I am only able to use two of them as a move I was planning did not happen. I am offering the other two for sale. They are new in box s and are a black love seat configuration.

Would love to make someone in the Houston area a great deal on these seats as local pickup would be preferred. PM me a respectable offer and I will likely take it. If you need more than two seats Roman can sell additional ones to pair up with these. I'm not looking to make back all the money I paid for them, so this is a chance for a great deal for someone.

EDIT: I am willing to sell all four of the seats if anyone is interested, two are still new in box. If you are in Houston area you will get a GREAT deal on these.
