Plycraft Recliner

Twenty-five bucks will get you a pretty sweet recliner at the Seattle Value Village, Capitol Hill. I left this one behind for some lucky lounger.

Very comfortable arms, placed high and wide. Decent back support and great reclining position, with your feet way up. The side knobs were  hard to tighten while seated, so the chair was difficult to lock into its extreme positions. But the knob system is intriguing to look at and intuitive, which is more than I can say for most recliners.

The worst part, ergonomically, is the footrest. When you place the chair in the upright position, this plank still sticks out, making it difficult to get into and out of the chair. It should tuck under the seat. How am I supposed to stand up if I can’t get my feet underneath me?
