Hi Scarr2k,

I am considering buying these, but as others, I'm hesitant without being able to try them first. Was hoping you wouldn't mind letting us know how yours are holding up 3 months since you purchased them. Also, how much do you use them? on the pics I see that you've placed small cushions in all of them. Are those just for looks/decor or do you feel you need them for back support?

Please let us know also how tall you both are (can't remember if you already mentioned that on one of your earlier posts).

Thanks a lot for your help! biggrin.gif

The fusion recliners are working great. No problems thus far regarding mechanical, material or workmanship. They are extremely comfortable and we probably use them 3-4 times a week. Every guest we have had come over have complimented on how comfortable and how nice they look. I am also very glad I got these with the tray table which has come in handy with drinks, food, etc. The cushions you saw in the photo were only for decor. The adjustable headrest on the seats work well but honestly I don't seem to adjust them much since when I'm fully reclined my head is at a good resting position with the screen. I'm 6' and about 220lbs, the wife about 5'4". The automatic recline is very fast and smooth and allows you to get the perfect position.

I would say one thing I have noticed is when you recline the seat back there is a small amount of hollow space between the back and the seat of the chair. I don't see it affecting the comfort but there is not a much lumbar support when it's at a specific recline. Hard to explain in an email.

I honestly think the fusion is the best value between the lagoons and the escape since for me the chilled drink holder and auto headrest on the Escape was not something I was willing to spend extra $ for. Good luck and I know its hard not trying them out but they are gorgeous in person and give a nice look to the theater.

I can't wait to check these chairs out next week (Tue). I'll be driving through the area so I'm going to stop at the warehouse to sit in these chairs. I'm interested in getting the Escapes.

I am about to pull trigger on Escapes and this comment has me worried as I am mainly looking for good lower back support for extended periods of reclining. Can Escape ownbers please comment on of they give good lower-lumbar back support for people with back problems ? I was even going to one of these for my work if you can believe it wink.gif

Not having the ability to try these out, I have been imagining a perfect chair based on all the comments here and am willing to shell out extra for Escapes. I hope I am not over-expecting !

I just received two brown leather Tribute FC-1015s. They arrived promptly and in good condition, although the top of one box was torn open. Contents were undamaged. The seat fully meet my expectations. Roman was very helpful in making my choice. Here they are in my family room.

Did you mean Tribute-1015?

The whole line is called Fusion Collection. Each style has its own name.

thanks to all who have posted on this thread, i now have 4 escapes sitting in my room... smile.gif

as everyone has noted, roman's service is exemplary... i ordered last friday afternoon, and they showed up yesterday... can't beat that...

color me quite happy... smile.gif comfy... "big enough" for me, but still not too big for my wife... automated controls are way cool... and the adjustable headrest is REALLY nice...

they are decently massive, so i was glad i had help to get them upstairs... i would have really struggled trying to move them myself... assembly was a snap, except for one zipper that fought me a bit...

more thoughts and a few pics to come... but initial impression is that these are "worth" every penny i paid for them, and then some...

Have you noticed any issues with lumbar support as mentioned in posts above? Lumbar support is critical for me and I am hesitant to purchase without trying them first. Additional reports are very helpful.

Thanks in advance for your help.

So I'm also looking to buy these seats. I'm wondering if there is enough people to attempt a power/group buy?

Uh oh, a power buy would probably push me over the edge. I'm not ready for chairs quite yet, but my bite early for the right price.

I just order a row of 5 curved Fusion Escapes from Roman. I have to say this is by far a lot smoother than I thought it would be.
He told me I could save money by paying with a personal check. So I mailed it to him at 4:00 Friday and on Tuesday he sent me the tracking number for the order. So the post office actually delivered from Texas to NJ over the weekend.

According to the tracking number It will be here next week. I am super excited.

As Roman mentioned in the post before yours, give him a call to discuss the chairs. He is offering excellent prices independent of a group buy. I pulled the trigger this weekend and sent a check yesterday for 8 Escape chairs.

Regarding the Escape chairs, I have yet to find a chair that even comes close to the value of this chair with similar features and quality. I was really struggling with the total price of these chairs, but once I thought about how much I spent for a single quality recliner in my family room (my favorite chair biggrin.gif) that isn't leather and doesn't have power features, I realized it wasn't out of line at all when you think about the price for each chair. The issue is that I am buying 8 of them. That is a lot of chairs.

Are you guys going with the bonded leather or leather/vinyl and why? Did any of you get the 5 year warranty?

Has anyone sat in both the Lagoon and the Escape? If so what's the comfort difference like?

Thanks in advanced.
post #326 of 850

bonded, because it appeared to be less shiny...

yes, i popped for the warrantee... i usually don't buy extended warratees, but given i will use these hard (2 of them, anyway) and the price was reasonable, i went for this one...

sorry, only have sat in the escapes... i bought mine blind...
post #327 of 850
I also have the escapes and the warranty on 4. The comfort level between the 2 designs is going to be hard to get an answer on because most haven't been in the same place with both of them plus that's a judgement call by each individual. I think the Escapes are really comfortable and I bet I would find the Lagoons the same way. IMHO, this is the best value for a high quality chair anywhere. But again, that's only an opinion but one from an owner/user.
post #328 of 850

yup, both swmbo and i find them very comfortable, and no complaints from guests yet... one of the reasons i popped for the escapes was the adjustable headrest... having used the chairs for awhile now, that is a REALLY nice feature in terms of comfort...

something that may seem silly to some, but was something i noticed as a "nice touch"... the power cords for the chairs are nice and long... dunno how many times i've bought something that would be unlikely to be used near an outlet that had way too short a cord...

yup, agreed on "value"' at least so far... i haven't owned theater seats before, but have owned plenty of furniture, and unless these wear a lot faster than i anticipate, the price tag is more than fair... i've certainly spent more and gotten less in the past... ymmv of course...

my only real "complaint" is that the table blocks the cup holder... my inner mcgyver is thinking of a solution for this... smile.gif
post #329 of 850
My single complaint is the trays themselves. The plastic ones I have I just don't use.

i'm workin' on it... smile.gif if i come up with something useful, i'll post it up...
