Find out which Rise & Recline chairs are best suited to you

The most important consideration when purchasing a chair is the size of the individual who will sit in the chair.  Seat height from the floor, seat width and seat depth are all imperative to ensure that the chair is as supportive and comfortable as possible.  With all chair purchases we would strongly recommend visiting our showroom and trying a few models.  Our trained and helpful staff will then be able to assess which chair is best suited to your needs.

Riser Recliner chairs are available in many sizes and there are a number of manufacturers. Hexagon are pleased to work with 3 different suppliers and have a select range to cover all customer requirements.  Riser Recliners are chairs which will recline, bringing the feet up and the taking the backrest back, and will also raise upward to bring the person to stand.  Some riser recliners have just a single motor which operates both the footrest and the backrest.  These single motor chairs have just two buttons on the handset and offer less sitting/reclining positions than a dual motor riser recliner.  They will not recline as far as a dual motor riser recliner does.  The dual motor riser recliners have an independent motor for the backrest and an independent motor for the footrest.  The dual motor riser recliners have a 4 or 5 button handset.  The dual motor chair will allow the customer to get into the exact position required and also reclines to a near horizontal sleeping position.

Our Pride C1 petite chair is the smallest single motor budget chair which we sell and it is hugely popular.  It is suitable for anyone of small build looking for a compact riser recliner chair.  It has a very easy to operate paddle-lever hand control and is available delivered within a week.  Pride also make a larger single motor budget chair with the same easy operating paddle-lever hand control.  This chair has a weight capacity of 27 stone and would suit most individuals’ upto 5ft 10” tall.  Both the Pride riser recliners are available in 5 fabrics (subject to stock) and can be delivered within a week; they also come with a full year warranty.  In addition the chairs are supplied with an antimacassar (for the head area) and arm-caps, as standard.

Sherborne Upholstery are Hexagon’s mid-range riser recliner suppliers.  They offer a wide assortment of chair styles and 4 different sizes in each style.  Most of our customer’s will find a chair that suits, choosing from the petite, small, standard or royale size that Sherborne offer.  All Sherborne chairs are offered with both the single motor and the dual motor option.  Our most popular Sherborne style is the Lynton which has a traditional look with a button back and wings and is designed for excellent comfort and support.  The Sherborne Malvern chairs are also popular with their attractive scroll arms, full-width chaise seating and soft, fibre-filled backs for extra support.  All Sherborne chairs are available in over 400 fabrics and many different leathers.  Delivery is 12 working days as standard.  However, some models are available next day, in a limited range of fabrics, for an additional surcharge.  Sherborne also offer head cushions, neck rolls, arm caps and lumbar cushions as extras.  It is also worth noting that Sherborne do a range of matching fireside chairs and sofas in both fabric and leather to accompany your riser recliner.
