A chair or a sofa is not just a piece of furniture. It is a haven to escape to, for your body to recharge and recover, for you mind to relax and dream. For your body to be truly comfortable, the chair or sofa has to be more than soft on your bottom.
True, long-term comfort requires correct, ergonomic design. Every chair and sofa that IMG makes is therefore designed to be both comfortable and as ergonomically correct as possible. Our chairs and sofas should support you in such a manner that the initial comfortable sensation is continued.
Sit in ergonomically designed, well-upholstered furniture and more than your muscles begin to relax. Your blood supply begins to circulate more freely. Your back muscles relax as your spine is gently supported in the right place and on the correct angle. This is a strange but true story. Read more.

Comfort is a personal matter - and it is found when your posture is correct and you get support where your body needs it. The human body is the pattern for every piece of our furniture. Each chair, desk chair, recliner and sofa is designed to contour to your shape, providing support to the knees, back, neck, head and especially the area around your lumbar region with proper cushioning.
The best way to identify comfortable and ergonomically sound recliner chairs is to follow some simple checkpoints:
•The chair needs to be Comfortable. This means that the firmness of the cushion needs to be suitable for your weight. The firmness of the back should be softer than the firmness of the seat, and the firmness of the seat construction must match the firmness of the back construction (the ratio needs to be proper).
•You should be able to lean back and relax the upper half of your body with a suitable back pitch and seat pitch angle. The chair should be supportive for upright seating, TV, reading and sleeping positions.
•The chair should give you support for a proper body posture including sufficient cushioning to the knees, back, neck, head and especially around your lumbar region.
•In the recliner you should be able to move freely, change positions, and the height of the armrest should allow you to rest your arms without slouching your shoulders. That way your shoulders relax and there is no undue strain on your lower back.
•Be sure to seek out correct sizing (seat height, seat depth, width and back height)
•Always keep in mind that a chair’s performance must be long lasting. Look for solid construction and durable components backed by a comprehensive warranty.
