In October 2014, we took out our three La-Z-Boy Pinnacle recliners (great recliners for RVs by the way), and put in two new recliners and a reclining loveseat built by Lambright Comfort Chairs in Topeka, Indiana (just south of Shipshewana).
Vernon, owner of Lambright Comfort Chairs, is such a nice guy and they build high quality furniture. Our recliners and loveseat were the first in this particular style (Lazy Lounger) with lowered arms. We were sort of guinea pigs.
Unfortunately, the new chairs weren't quite as comfortable as our La-Z-Boys. At first, we thought it was just a matter of time to let the foam soften, but after almost a year, I was still struggling with my recliner. After two or three hours of working on my laptop, my rear would hurt. We were hesitant to call Vernon because he took such good care of us, and we didn't want to seem ungrateful.
But, since we were going to be in the area we thought we would call and see if there was anything we could do to improve the seating. Before I could make the phone call, Vernon called us, and he wanted us to stop by the shop/showroom. We made arrangements and today was the day.
As it turns out, Vernon had been getting some inconsistent foam from his supplier, and he wanted to make our chairs and loveseat right. Plus, he had discovered a new spring that increases the comfort and naturally adjusts based on the weight of the person sitting in the chair.
In the showroom, we sat in the same design of chair, and quickly felt the effects of the new improvements. And though we didn't get the electrical option last year, we decided we wanted to give it a try.
So, we dropped off our furniture for Vernon and his family to re-work it. For the next several days, we will be using our LaFuma outdoor loungers for seating.
After going over the plan with his sons, ultimately, they decided to put our furniture on the showroom floor and sell it as used (it still looks brand new and they re-foamed it).
Therefore, they are building us new recliners and a loveseat with the new springs, better foam, and the power reclining option in one recliner and the loveseat. We figured we'll have the inverter on when we're boondocking, so we'll still be able to recline. On my recliner, I'm going with a swivel-rocker as I missed the rocking aspect of my old chair, and it, therefore, can't be electric.
So, we will be here until late next week and I'll update this entry when we get our new furniture.
In the meantime, if you are in the market for RV furniture, and especially if you are going to be in the Elkhart/Goshen/Shipshewana area, give Vernon a call or stop in and see what he has to offer.

The coupon is only good at the Lambright Comfort Chair Showroom in Topeka, Indiana and you must print it out and present it (just showing it on your phone or tablet won't work).
P.S. For what it's worth, we've met many RVers that swear by Lambright, and our friends at RVs For Less replace the standard furniture in the DRVs they sell with Lambright Comfort Chairs. It's good stuff. :)
