Thanks for your input, Donald. Much appreciated!

I'll check with the different manufacturers at ISE to see which ones have true high end seating. Peter's custom Cineak model might be the best one out there.

Continuing down this rabbit hole, my seat in my den/man cave/"theater" is a leather La-Z-Boy Randell Power Recliner. Full power footrest, recline, headrest and lumbar with two memory positions, wireless backlit remote, USB power port and battery back-up power.

Mine is the LaZ E Boy Oscar. Incredibly comfortable. Also very adjustable.

May I tag on in this thread and ask: recommendations for a high end, three seat sofa with the same features, i.e., power recline, headrest, lumbar, etc.?

TIA.

Continuing the Q&A, could anyone recommend a comfortable swivel manual recliner?

La-Z Boy

https://www.la-z-boy.com/?WT.srch=1&...wOgw&gclsrc=ds

La-Z Boy, search website by model to see available configurations and features. E.G., I have the Maverick power rocking recliner with headrest and lumbar (wired controller for footrest/bottom, headrest/top, cervical and lumbar). You can get all the Maverick features in a sofa or loveseat, too.

https://www.la-z-boy.com/s?Ntt=maver...questid=256531

Of all the La-Z Boy models Maverick was easily my favorite.

My understanding is that La-Z Boy rocking recliners all swivel - I got a pair for my daughter which are rocking manual and they also swivel.

IMG Norway has many models and most come in 3 sizes.

It just depends on the specific model. Neither of mine(current and previous manual version) swivel. Only rock. And some don’t even do that. The “wall recliners” , which can be placed very close to a wall and still fully recline, because they will actually slide forward automatically, do not rock (or swivel).

Found it!

Cineak showed a new model on ISE (it's not on their website yet) with a very small headrest. Looks like the perfect solution!
