Recliner chairs are quite popular, for the nice blend of style and comfort they offer. They fit into different types of households, both with traditional and modern décor.
You can place these chairs in the living room as well in your study. This makes a cozy haven for relaxation after a grueling day’s work!
Acme makes some of the popular recliner chairs and the Arcadia Recliner is decent contender from its stable.
Design and Looks
The Acme Arcadia recliner is surely not going to win any design awards for its styling, but it is not exactly drab looking either. It looks decent and blends in with your décor.
You get a few hues to pick from including the Oakwood Chocolate- which is probably what most buyers will choose.
It does look quite comfortable, but the actual comfort level will vary on your body type and usage pattern. You may also opt for beige, sage as well as light brown hues for this model.
This recliner features pocket coil seating mechanism that not helps you maintain your posture but also makes the recliner absolutely cozy!
Material Used and its benefits
TheAcme Arcadia recliner is made of wood, Metal Frames and there are plastic parts inside. The exterior is coated with polyester microfiber for padding and cushioning.
The surface is smooth and it adjusts to your body contour easily, but it is not much glossy. The paced back-seat offers decent cushioning.
While the surface is easy to swipe for dust removal, removing specific types of stain can be tedious.
Sticky liquid, once spilled on the microfiber surface can be hard to remove and you may have to call professional cleaning companies to eradicate these stubborn stains.
In terms of features, the Acme Arcadia scores moderately well. You get an external handle with which the reclining mechanism can be activated easily.
The chair has a weight of 76 pounds when properly assembled. As far as setting it up is concerned, it is not difficult. You may be able to do it on your own- by using the included guidelines. The company offers warranty details online.
Massage and Heating: A number of recliner chairs you can buy include in built massaging feature. This is ideal if you suffer from aches and pains or simply want to soothe your aching body after a long and tiring day. Sadly, the Acme Arcadia lacks this feature.
It does not also have heating feature which is needed in chilly winter evenings. So, it is not fit for users seeking a recliner for absolute relaxation and comfort.
The cushioning used in this recliner is decent, but not great. People with big legs and tall people will find it inadequate for their needs. The armrest is decent though.
The footrest can get jammed at times and will need you to throw in some muscle to open it up!
The Acme Arcadia is a recliner with dimensions suited for small to medium sized users, for both genders.
It is 38 inches long, while width is 35 inches and the height is 40 inches. Those who are above 6 feet and heavyweight will have issues in fitting in the chair comfortably.
You look for a recliner chair mostly for comfort and relaxation. The Acme Arcadia definitely offers more comfort than budget airlines seats or school chairs do.
However, as far as quality recliners are concerned- it lags in the comfort department. While it is not exactly uncomfortable to use for extended periods of time, this is not a recliner you will fall asleep in as soon as you rest in it.
However, for daily usage- it does its job and rather well. The recliner is suitable for all age groups and is favored by the elderly too!
Overall, it is difficult to write off the Acme Arcadia recliner as a bad product in this category. It may not be the top contender in home recliners, but does come with some benefits too.
You get to choose from a decent choice of colors and setting up the recliner is rather simple. To get the best experience- you need to evaluate your usage needs.
If a basic and moderately comfortable recliner for daily use is what you need- it fits the bill rather well. You will have to be flexible with ease of usage and maintenance though. The company also offers varying warranty on the product parts.
