When we got married, my wedding gift to Stephen was a recliner chair from Costco. I bought it for him while he was away on his bachelor houseboat weekend and put it in our new apartment to surprise him. He loved this recliner, a.k.a. his "man chair". And it has gotten great use over the past 8 years. Stephen spent many nights falling asleep on it, I used it as my temporary bed during my pregnancies when heartburn was so bad I had to sleep sitting up, hours of rocking Madeline and James to sleep, a comfortable spot for guests to sit in often 2 at a time (it was an extra wide recliner and could seat two!). But it shows it's years of use with the upholstery tearing. I've covered it several times with material. But it was time to replace it. So when we got this new sofa couch set, we also got the over-sized chair and ottoman. We love it! And it's even wider than the "man chair" so I guess we'll call it the "two-man chair". I predict Stephen will fall asleep on this one too!
