They are 67" full extended (top of head rest to bottom of foot rest). Remember also that the assembeld units will have a slight curve, so you'll need a little more room than that.
Just got mine today. My carpet installers won't be here til wednesday. So I have the left end unit setup in my garage.
The design is: left end unit has straight arm on left, wedge arm on right (this is the only unit with 2 arms). Then center unit attaches on right, with a wedge arm on right, then right chair attaches on right of that, with straight arm on right.
Very comfortable. I'm 6'5", ~270#s. With seat upright and with feet extended, my head is fully over the pillow (which is what I wanted). Fully extended, I could sleep on it.
Very handsome also. I got the brown leather. Nice quality. I really like the wood feet in front... wife is digging that also.
The screw holding the release for the recliner looks crooked/not fully screwed in to me... I didn't look at the other chairs to compare... and I didn't mess with it yet. The latch is firmly attached and works fine. One thread end of stitching needs to be trimmed. I'm really picking nits.
I've sat in Berkline 99's 90's 88's some others. Also tried Lazyboys at thier store, and other brands (MANY others) at our local "Dump" store.
All were significantly more expensive. None are significantly better.
The Berkline 90s are the most similar to these. The Berklines had a more solid feel, and richer feeling leather. I'd say the Berklines are slightly better... but not a lot.
I bought these unseen.
I'm VERY happy!
