The Oxford Riser/Recliner is designed in the classic style so will sit neatly in any company, and is well worth checking out. Let’s have a closer look at what is good about this chair:

Ease of Use

An electric recliner should be easy to use, to the extent that you can do what you want with just the touch of a button. The control panel for the Oxford Riser/Recliner is a two-button design and, as such, is the ultimate in simplicity. The handset features the two main functions – recline, for when you want to find your ultimate comfort position, and rise, for when you need to get back upright, and also forward for easy exit. It’s a simple set up that makes things effortless and easy.


The Oxford Riser/Recliner is made from high quality fabric that is hard-wearing and designed for a long life, so you can rely on your chair to give you many years of service. It is also suitably padded for extra comfort, with added attention paid to the lumbar region, and provides a very comfortable seat however you have it set for use. It’s a great chair that will complement your existing suite, too.


Available in a choice of attractive colours – beige, brown or red – the fabric-upholstered the Oxford Riser/Recliner will look the part wherever you choose to use it, and its natural hues and traditional, stylish yet unobtrusive design make it a very viable addition to your lounge furniture, or indeed for anywhere in the home.

The Oxford Riser/Recliner is a well-made chair that has many fine attributes, but is this the one for you? On the plus side, it is stylish and traditional in its looks, and it is easy to operate and well-made. If leather is your thing, however, this is not your chair, although not everybody wants a leather chair so the fabric may be the selling point for you. At around £380 it may not be the cheapest, but we think it is a very nice chair that will provide you with excellent comfort whenever you need it.
