Do reclining sofas recline only at the outter two seats or also in the middle seat?
All depends on the sofa. We had one that had a both recliners on one end and a pull out bed on the other. It was a sectional. If it's a smaller sofa, probably just the two ends. And I don't think a rocker recliner will have a mechanism to keep it from rocking... It just won't rock while it's reclined.
I have a Lazyboy swivel recliner that I want to make stationery. How?
Good question. I've seen this before and notice that usually people use those little screw in upholstery holders. I don't see any sense that they work very long. I think I would use the two way carpet tape which is sticky on both sides and less apt to fall off easily. The idea of having arm chair covers is a good one because it helps keep the arms clean from oils and dirt and easily washed and cleaned without doing all of the chair or sofa. I purchased hand towels in a matching color and attached them in place this way because it saves getting the arms worn out and stained. I think it would be great if the manufacture of the furniture pieces would suggest ways to secure them in place and offer any tips. Hope this might be of help to you.
How do you fix a squeaking la-z-boy recliner?
When you flip it over In the center near the front, sort of centered, before the footrest there is a double row bar with "teeth" and a claw-like device that engages it (It kind of reminds me of an ice scraper. It is what makes that ratcheting sound when you lean back with the footrest up and keeps it from tilting forward. This is likely where your squeaking is coming from. Use a good pasty lubricant like axel grease or a spray-on teflon grease that is meant for use with metal.
Why are chairs from the 50s so uncomfortable?
Metal patio furniture, or also called garden furniture, is a growing trend. While there are many types to choose from, they are all very durable and will last for many years without the need for maintenance. With the growing abundance of accessories and options that can be added to any set, outdoor furniture is ideal for setting up a gathering area outside for family and friends. Metal patio furniture was inspired by formal living room sets. Outdoor furniture was first limited to rocking chairs made of wood, or folding chairs with canvas backs. Inspired by formal living room chairs from the 1950s, the first metal patio furniture was curvy and very decorative. While the metal patio furniture can be very decorative and functional, in the hot sun the metal can warm up and be very hot to sit on. On a hot day, a cushion should be used or water placed on the chair to cool it off before sitting on it. Many of the older metal furniture pieces used an old painting technique that often lead to the furniture rusting over time. To prevent this, these pieces can be repainted with the newer types of paint that will prevent the rusting from occurring. Furniture made in the 1950s and 1960s is considered to be mid-century modern and includes low sofas in solid shades of green, brown, rust and orange. Vinyl upholstery covers the sofa, but the extra seating in the room is made of shaped plastic or thinly curved wood. Large drum lampshades and thickly piled rugs accent the simple, yet elegant living room decor. Those 50's furnitures are not that much comfortable to sit with ease. Recently, one new invention in chair has been done.

What kind of chair is good after hip replacement surgery?
I've had both hips replaced in separate surgeries and here's what I've concluded about chairs. The best place to sit has a firm seat that's no lower then the bend in your knees and has two arm rests so that you can raise and lower yourself easily, and has a straight back. This pretty much eliminates sofas & couches ( I didn't sit on mine for 6 months). Certain recliners are ok especially if they don't rock or swivel. Seat height can be a problem for tall people. And they're frequently overstuffed - not firm. I also used a boat cushion to raise seats that weren't the right height - kept it in my car and used it in restaurants, theaters. At home I stacked two resin deck chairs - the cheap kind you get at discount stores. Put a thin cushion on the seat and it worked just fine.
Well... where can I get another Antique chair like this?
Thought this might still be useful esp for others who are also looking for the same stuff. Here's what I can say on this: Looking for a leather armchair that looks old-fashioned, and at the same time, has the kind of usage you are thinking about (the term “gynaecologist” was kind of a dead giveaway) can be rather difficult, and may require you to go to a custom furniture maker. This can be a somewhat embarrassing ordeal, if the design you showed is any indication of what the chair is to be used for. There are websites however, that do have similar looking seats, although not with arms as long as you pictured. There are chairs that are old fashioned looking, and there are chairs that have relatively long arms, as you depicted in your sketch, but for an old-fashioned looking chair with arms that long, some modifications may have to be made if you purchase a ready-made one from any of the online stores you search through. There are some that may be worth looking into, like this traditional looking button armchair with red leather upholstery and leather padded arm rests. You can have a local furniture maker alter the seat’s arms to get these to be as long as you want them to be, and to have them pad these with the same colored leather as the seat, to give you what you want.
