In for 4

So the Fusion chairs are bonded leather? They're not top grain leather?

at least with the escapes, you have a choice, not sure on other models...

ime, besides my early comment about the shinyness, "good" bonded leather takes more abuse than "inexpensive" top grain... ymmv...

I just tell everyone that visits that little silver button is used for the optional ejection seat upgrade. They are generally relieved to know I didn't go for that option. Some have asked what the cost for it was though...cool.gif

smokarz,

All style groups are offered in BLACK and ESPRESSO BROWN full latest generation bonded leather and top grain leather w/matching vinyl on the sides of the armrests and back of the chairs.

Anyone have the manual recline option? Does the manual recline allow you to stop at any point?
post #336 of 853
Opus33,

Currently we only offer the motorized recliners, and I strongly recommend going with the power recline regardless which chairs you end up buying.
post #337 of 853
Is anyone know how much power draw on the motorized recliners? I am going to use the plug share with other small kitchen appliance. Just want to make sure it won't blow the circuit.

I don't know the exact draw for the Fusion chairs, but here is a thread with info on how much power motorized chairs draw. It isn't much.

I received 4 Fusion Lagoons in leather/vinyl this past November. They still look new.

I put out all 7of my theater seats yesterday for the 1st time since I bought them in January. Turns out the love seat configuration is a home run and I ended up switching the back row from IOIOOIOI to IOOIIOOI

Also the love seats add seats. My wife, older brother's wife, and younger brother's girlfriend all shared the 2 love seats

yep same here.

We use our chairs on average 6 days a week for 1-4 hrs at time. The chairs still look and feel great.

I got my Fusion Escape seats from Roman a few weeks ago. They are destined for my new theater addition, which is under construction, but I could not resist setting them up in my current family room theater. Overall, I am very pleased with the seats. It is always concerning to order something online without being able to try them out but Roman had not steered me wrong when I bought my Berklines from him in '06 and he did not steer me wrong this time. Here is a mini-review, based on 2-3 weeks of use.

Overall: I am extremely satisfied with the Fusion Escape recliners. Coming from the Berkline 094s, I was concerned these would be too small. My dog loves to sit next to me between me and the armrest during movies and he is not tiny so I need a good amount of room. I was not disappointed. While they are a little smaller (at least they seem like it) than the Berklines, it is minimal and their is plenty of room for both Buster and I to enjoy a show.

Fabric and Build Quality The build quality of these recliners is as good as, if not better, than my previous Berklines. All of the leather seams are straight and aligns properly with the edges of the cushions and armrests.

Comfort The chairs are very comfortable. They have a bit more Lumbar support that I was used to in the Berklines and the Pocket Coil definitely provides more support. Essentially, you give up some of that "falling into the chair" feeling for a more supportive seat that you could sit in for hours without feeling fatigued. They tend to sit higher than my previous seats (and I am 6'1"). You also have to adjust your sitting location when you recline or you tend to be sitting to far forward in the chair. That was odd at first but, now that I am used to them, I don't even realize I am doing it. Perhaps I had to do the same with my old seats, I don't know. Either way, they are comfortable as heck. And the Power Head Rests are great. Every theater chair should have adjustable head rests. Nice to be able to recline to watch a movie and still have great head and neck support. Also, the full length chaise lounge provides great support for your legs and calves. At 6'1", I never felt like it was too short to give the support that I needed.

Operation and Features Everything works the way you would expect it to with the some pleasant surprises. First, the recline mechanism is quieter and faster that the Berklines...seems minor but the speed is really nice when someone is at the door or the phone rights...not a huge difference, but definitely quicker. The tray tables are nice...I know some have complained, but they are basically the same as my Berklines other than that they tend to scratch more easily. I don't use them much and, when I do, it is in a dark theater so I don't really care. Speaking of Dark, I was very nervous about the Cupholder LEDs, based on a lot of the posts on here. I am picky about a dark theater and pretty lights distract me, so I was sure I was in trouble. I only ordered now, rather than waiting, because I needed seats when my theater was done and Roman assured me I could replace the cup holders with his new ones (for a fee) myself. I was pleasantly surprised in that the lights do not bother me at all. They are not too bright. The only issues I have with them is that my dogs tend to like to stand on the armrest and are always putting a seat or headrest in or out...not a big deal unless you are almost dozing and you seat starts to recline unexpectedly. smile.gif The touch controls are awesome, however. I like them much better than the buttons mounted inside the side arms. Much more convenient. Cooled cup holders? I just pretend they are not there. They don't really do much and the fan noise is annoying - just like the ones they put in cars (I knew what to expect when I got them). Overall, I could not ask for anything more in regards to features.

Sales, Shipping and Support What do I need to say here besides the fact that these chairs come from Roman? The service was great, communication was excellent and the shipping was light speed. Just want I have come to expect from him.

Without further ado, here is a pic of their temporary spot in my Family Room. With any luck, i will be able to post a pic of all 7 in the new theater in a few months.



If you have any questions, let me know.

Thanks again Roman for the great experience, awesome product and terrific price!!

So has no one gotten the Jive's yet? Still waiting for any possible feedback/thoughts on this series in the Fusion line. Pics as well of course would be nice. I know Roman has pics but seeing them in someone's actual space helps as well. Finally, nobody then has done a couch arrangement then with these it appears?

Someone has started another thread on the Jive chairs. Take a look here:

There is a lock button on the cup holder. When you adjust your seating and headrest to a desirable position, just press the lock button, and it will lock all controls. You dog, you or anyone else for that matter will not be able to accidentally change the reclining or headrest position. By pressing the lock button again you will activate the controls and will be able to readjust your reclining and headrest position.

Ya Roman, I lock them. I just usually remember there is a lock button about the time they freak me out by moving the chair. tongue.gif. Still getting used to them. I am a slow learner. Don't anyone get me wrong, I love the new control location. At least the can be locked. The controls on the side of the armrest on the old chais were terrible...especially when a dog is between you and the controls and they could not be locked. These are a MUCH BETTER solution.

post #348 of 853
Is anyone can tell me how to manually adjust the headrest on my Tribute?

By the way, they are great and my girlfriend cannot get out of it. smile.gif
post #349 of 853
Just pull the top of the back forward. It should bend up to 30 degrees.

When you want to bring it back into a straight position just push on it with your head.
post #350 of 853
Just to bring the thread back to the Lagoon model, here is a picture of my three in brown leather set up in the basement.

Initial impressions are very good, the leather looks good, the seats are comfortable and supportive, and the recline mechanism is smooth and feels solidly engineered.

Add me to the list of happy customers for RSH, my check was delivered on Friday and the chairs were delivered on Monday morning.

I placed an order for 1 black fusion escape for my family room. Can't wait! I would have liked to get a pair but the wife wanted a recliner/rocker from the furniture store instead. I'll post again when it arrives and is set up.

Hi cp59, you went with the bonded leather or leather/vinyl?

I went with the bonded leather. It's cheaper and I think it'll stay cleaner / easier to clean.
post #354 of 853
Can the Fusion Escapes be moved around easily?

If not, can they be placed on furniture movers?

The reason I ask is I want to by 2 love seat configurations (I00I) to be used in one row for watching movies, and use them as regular love seats perpendicular to each other when not watching a movie. This requires me to move one love seat configuration frequently.

yes, mine slide rather easily... a good thing, as i need to vacuum underneath mine on a regular basis... i live in my theater room, we even eat dinner in there most nights (no kids, so we don't have to set a good example for anyone... tongue.gif )... plus the fur from my cats really builds up underneath there...

you'd probably have to unplug them though, depending on your actual layout, and plug them back in once they are moved... other than that, it should be no problem...

someone asked a "durability question" earlier... i've had mine since july, so far, so good... mine (2 of them, anyway), get used at least 6 hours every day (much longer on football weekends), and the recline mechanism gets used many many times each day... we'll see what happens a year from now, but given the abuse they've taken so far, i'm pretty confident i'm not gonna be griping... smile.gif any number of liquid items have already been spilled on them (including one of my cats doing a VERY BAD THING tongue.gif ), and the bonded leather cleans right up...

up...

Great thanks. Do you have carpet, tile or wood floors?

rug and wood...

the chairs aren't that heavy... they are substantial enough so that they stay in place, but they are still very easy to move...
post #358 of 853
Just ordered 4 more Escapes from Roman for the second row.

Was going to go with a couch back there but we love the chairs and decided it anyone wanted to sit on a couch and watch a move, they could go downstairs and watch it on the 64" Samsung.

I placed an order for a IOVOIOIOVOI (row of 5, middle 3 straight, outers curved, all with armrests) Jives in brown leather match with buttkickers BK4-4 in each. They were a quite bit more than I ultimately wanted to spend (because of the BKs) on seating but considering my room is only 15L x 14W, I'm glad I can fit a single row of 5 in it.

Let us know how you like the BK4-4 in the Jives. I tried the minis in my Jives but returned them and am now waiting for the BK4-4's.
