Question:

I am looking for  a higher end zero gravity recliner that has heat/massage. I want something that won’t fall apart in a few years. I looked at Southern Motion, but read somewhere that they are not good quality.  Can you help?

 Answer:

Almost all popularly priced reclining furniture (including Southern Motion, LaZBoy, Flexsteel, Best, Catnapper, Franklin and recliners imported from Asia)  uses low cost 1.8 density foam.

  • Most of their reclining furniture also has non-removable cushions, which limits the lifespan of the seating.

Southern Motion’s zero gravity line is SoCozi, which was designed in partnership with Italian manufacturer Cozzia.

  • If you want a better quality zero gravity chair, check out Cozzia, but the prices will be considerably higher.

Southern Motion (and all of its competitors) get a lot of negative reviews for their mid-range reclining furniture. Keep in mind, however:

  • Most problems occur in larger pieces (reclining sofas and sectionals.)
  • SoCozi is more expensive than many of Southern Motion’s other products. It generates fewer complaints.

There are better quality zero gravity recliners, but they can get very expensive.

A few of the better quality zero gravity brands include:

  • Ekornes Stressless (Not sure whether they make electric or massage, but their chairs are extremely well made and comfortable.)
