Sit in perfectly supported comfort with the timeless Canterbury. Beautiful wooden knuckles provide a tactile grip – and a gorgeously gleaming finish to the arm rests.

Waterfall Back

With its elegant and luxuriously filled waterfall back, the Canterbury has a beautiful look whilst offering superb support. The three plump, cascading cushions are cleverly contoured to follow the shape of your spine, giving excellent lumbar support for your lower back. This helps you maintain good posture even over long periods, preventing pressure points so you don’t end up with niggly aches and pains! A god-send for anyone suffering from back trouble.

Wooden Knuckles

While the clever motor will gently lower you down in the seat and steadily back up again to standing, many customers like having something really solid to hold onto for extra security. Those gleaming wooden arm-ends on the Canterbury don’t just look gorgeous; they’re there provide a firm grip, giving you extra purchase and making standing and sitting even easier still. They also reduce wear on your upholstery – a win all round!

Dual Motor

Customers rave about our dual motor, which allows you to adjust the foot and backrest independently. Not only does this help you get really comfortable, it brings a wealth of health benefits including improving circulation and reducing swelling in the lower legs and ankles. Basically it’s heaven in a chair.

Simple 2-Button Remote

Our high-leg lift motor remote couldn’t be easier to operate. There’s one button to simultaneously lower the back and raise the footrest, and a second to bring it back upright and the footrest down. Keep pressing and it will continue forward into the ‘rise’ position.

British Beech

You won’t find low quality MDF or chipboard in our chairs. We use kiln-dried British beech for its inherent strength; a hardwood that's well suited to the stresses and strains placed upon it in everyday use in a rise and recline chair.

Castors and Gliders

Buy a beautiful Made to Fit chair with us online and they’ll come with quality lockable castors so that you can slide them into place across your carpet then fix in position. Have a hard floor? Gliders are also available when you buy in store.



This stunning Canterbury Rise and Recline Chair is available to order online in three sizes: classic, petite, and grande. The classic chair is ideal for most people. If you are shorter than 5'2", we recommend you choose a petite size. And if you are heavier than 18.5st we suggest choosing a grande size.
