This is a polyester and polyester-blend wing chair recliner that is made of a solid birch wood frame. The wood and frame finish are both espresso in color. Other hardware used in construction of the product is iron. There is one reclining position that is achieved using a push-back mechanism; this product does not come with power recline.

As for the stuffing, it is 93% polyurethane foam pad and 7% resin treated polyester fiber batting. The seat and back cushions are not removable, and neither are the cushion covers. The cushions are not reversible either. The cushions are though, and they contain flame-retardant material.

Before making a purchase, it is always a good idea to check the measurements of the recliner as given below against the size of the living space in which you plan to use it.

  • The seat measures 19″ H X 20.5″ W X 21.5″ D
  • When fully reclined, the seat extends to 63″ D
  • The arms are 24.75″ H
  • The back cushion measures 22.2″ H

  • The distance from the back of the seat to the footrest when extended is 49.5″ D

All the prices are only for reference, Exact price will be based on the latest quotation.

The Henley recliner is currently listed online for a price of $289.99. There aren’t any ongoing sales or discounts at the moment, but seasonal promotions and other marketing deals regularly kick in over the year, so make sure you check the latest price before finalizing your purchase so that you can catch any ongoing sales or lock in any deals at the exact time that you are ready to buy.

If you are interested in buying protection for this item, you can purchase a protection plan from Uniters for less than $35 your chair. The plan covers unintentional stains, rips, tears, burns, punctures, chips, dents, and water rings. It even provides a 30-day risk-free refund if you are not satisfied, and your coverage can be availed immediately. Finally, you can file a claim any time you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The only things not covered are damage caused by neglect, improper care, intentional abuse, a failure to comply with the manufacturer’s warranty, or as a result of using the chair for purposes other than its intended purpose of sitting on.


These chairs are actually nicer than they appear to be online. They come really well packed and can be assembled with relative ease. The color and materials are neutral but they make for interesting furniture pieces in your home because of the texture. They really lighten up the sitting area in which you place them, and they are also comfortable for watching TV or reading. For the price, they are highly recommended.

The fabric is soft but still durable, and the padding used is very high quality. The bonded leather is nice, too. The metal tacks/rivets are a little tricky to manage in some places (meaning they are not exactly straight and could be a little closer together), but the chair itself is comfortable and leans back easily. Overall, it has construction that is better than you would expect for the price.

A few people bought multiple seats for use in different parts of the house, and you can even mix and match different colors in the same room. It has very high-end and regal looks, and for less than $300, it is surprising how much style, function, and solid construction comes with this product.


Some people had trouble assembling this chair because it comes in four different parts (the back, the seat, and the two wings). Also, sometimes the holes and screws do not line up perfectly with the wings, meaning you will have to wrestle with it to get it assembled. Also, this chair might seem a little narrow to some folks who need more room to sit comfortably. This is important considering how much time you generally expect to sit in a comfy recliner. And for taller or heavier persons, this may not be the best option, because it has a weight limit of 300lbs and has fixed seat and arm dimensions.

However, beyond minor complaints, a few issues with delayed delivery, problems faced by customers during assembly, and a few instances of color selections not exactly matching the online pictures, there are no surprising issues that are not the kind often faced with online purchases. Everything with this recliner is pretty much as described and shown online, and the overall rating of 4.3 stars out of 5 from over 1500 reviews is very good indeed.


This is a recliner that has come with great customer reviews, traditional looks, pleasant colors that range from warm and cozy to traditional and formal, and solid construction. Delivery is quick most of the time, and it looks very good in a well thought-out design, just what you would expect for a home or apartment seating solution.

This recliner is relatively light, easy to set up, quick to deliver, and cheap considering the material, construction, parts, and brand name.

With this specialty item from Alcott Hill, you have the opportunity to make a good home investment for a comfortable, modern, and high value furniture piece. It makes a great purchase for first-time chair buyers, young adults, anyone looking for a little extra comfort or style, and for those who want to really enjoy their recliner instead of saving a few dollars on a bargain that isn’t worth it in the long run.

If you are looking for something that comes with value, a respectable brand name, quick delivery, easy setup, multiple color options, comfortable seats, and a great price, go for the Henley recliner by Alcott Hill.
