Who is the Hogan Oversized Recliner by Ashley Furniture Suitable for –
The obvious feature of this oversized recliner and what makes it stand out from others is its width. This chair is Extra-Wide at a whopping 59″, which means you have to make sure you have enough space in your living room for it. The measurement between the armrests is 28″ which is very wide but it also means that the arms themselves are very wide.
The chair is perfect for a heavy person that doesn’t want to have to squeeze into their favorite chair everyday and have a little space to shuffle around. It is worth noting however that although this chair has more width than most other oversized recliners, its weight capacity is still only 300 lbs. 300 lbs is still a decent weight limit but not as much as a big man chair, such as the Stallion by Lane Furniture or the Mega Motion Power Lift Chair, both having a weight capacity of 500 lbs.
Many customers talk about sharing this chair with their partner, just like a love seat. They snuggle up while watching TV, however you will need to be quite thin for two adults to fit comfortably in the seat. It is a perfect chair for sitting with a small child, whilst watching a movie or reading a story to them.
Don’t be surprised if you have to share this seat with your dog or cat because the space between you and that arm rest will look very inviting.
Materials & Construction
The upholstery is made of 100% polyester fabric and is very soft to the touch. It has a synthetic suede feel to it. One thing worth mentioning is that the color is darker than the images. It is more of a brown than the light mocha color in the promotional images. That being said, it shouldn’t be a deal breaker unless you have your heart set on a light color brown. Unfortunately, the chair is only available in one color, however the darker color will allow it to look cleaner and new for longer, especially if you have kids and pets.
Under the upholstery is high-resilient foam cushion wrapped in thick poly fiber. This is a well padded chair that will be great relaxing and sleeping on. The arm rests are quite large also, so it really is a large throne for your living room.
It has a solid and sturdy construction with a corner-blocked frame and a metal reinforced seat. As mentioned above, its weight capacity is 300 lbs, so not as strong as some other oversized chairs but definitely not flimsy.
This chair is also a zero wall recliner meaning it is not only a wall hugger but can be placed right up against the wall. This is a great space saver because you don’t need any room between the back of the chair and wall. The recliner will recline as normal and glide into place without hitting or damaging the wall behind.
