Today, we can say we are an advanced society. Many modern inventions continue to not only serve a need, but also a want or a luxury. A motor in our Sofas, Loveseats and Recliners falls into the latter category.
Back years ago, my grandfather had a power chair out of necessity. Today, I have one because I just wanted it. Sure, you can say what my wife said - I was being lazy. There goes the only exercise I ever got, closing the recliner. But I say it's just a natural order of progression for mankind. Many years ago we had TV's with knobs that turned and now we have remote controls that can take us 400 channels up or down in a heartbeat.
Along that same line, we have had manual recliners for years, but now we have power recliners that adds functionality. With a manual recliner, it is either all the way open or all the way closed. However, with my power recliner, I can stop it at any point of the motion. Maybe I just want my legs just a little off the ground or maybe I want to be fully reclined. With my power recliner, I can do both.
Sure, you may be laughing at me now and calling me lazy, but then again, didn't they do the same when the TV remote control came out. Check out a power reclining Sofa, Loveseat or Recliner today and see for yourself why a power recliner isn't just for grandpa anymore. It's a legitimate want and luxury.
