No detail has been neglected when it comes to the Richmond, from the plushly padded supportive back-cushion, to the elegant wooden knuckles that allow you to sit and stand with confidence.

Unique High Leg Lift

Customers rave about our high leg lift motor, which raises your feet to above the level of your hips. Not only is this blissfully comfortable, it brings a wealth of health benefits including improving circulation and reducing swelling in the lower legs and ankles. Because the backrest and footrest move together as one, your body is kept at a comfortable 90 degree angle at all times. Basically it’s heaven in a chair.

Beautiful Button Back

A button-back like the Richmond’s gives a wonderfully cosy look that would be right at home in a chocolate box country cottage. Seven individually covered buttons are hand-stitched onto the well-padded back-rest, providing wonderful support whilst exuding heaps of traditional charm. Trends may come, and trends may go, but this is a classic look that’s sure to stand the test of time.

Wooden Knuckles

While the clever motor is designed to gently lower you down into your seat, and then steadily back up again to your feet, many people like having something really solid to hold onto for extra security. Those gleaming wooden arm-ends on the Richmond don’t just look beautiful; they’re there provide a firm grip, giving you extra purchase and making standing and sitting even easier still.

Wingback Design

Elegant wings provide lateral head support, meaning you can turn your head to the side and rest against them, which many find just the trick when it comes to those afternoon naps (or a nap any time of day, for that matter.)

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.

Handy Side Pocket

No need to worry about losing the remote. We’ve built a convenient side pocket into the chair so you can pop it in to keep it safe and close to hand. It also comes in useful for your favourite read and your specs…
