For our bespoke riser recliner collection you are able to specify five different measurements to ensure your chair is just right for you.
(Note: Extend back height (D) to top of the head. Remove G
When taking these measurements, always ensure that the person who will be using the chair is wearing their normal footwear.
Seat width (A):
In a seated position, measure from the widest point to the widest point of the bottom. Add 2.5cm/1” to this measurement to determine the ideal seat size.
Seat depth (B):
Make sure the bottom is positioned as far back in the chair as possible. Measure from the rear most position of the bottom to the back of the knee. The required seat depth is usually 2.5cm/1” less than this measurement. However, as a general rule, you should be able to place two fingers between the back of the knee and the front of the seat cushion.
Seat height (C):
This is the measurement from the floor to the back of the knee.
Back height (D) - extend to above to the top of the head
The ideal back height is one that is tall enough to adequately support the head. Measure from the top of the seat cushion to the top of the head.
Armrest height (E)
To determine the ideal armrest height, the arms should be in a position such that the shoulders are not in a raised or dropped position. Measure from the top of the seat cushion to the top of the armrest.
