    Re: My trusty green machine

    We went with Omnia. Same thing—I hope this is the last leather furniture we need to buy, probably in our lifetime if they last as long as my old green recliner. 🤞🏼

    They sure don’t! Or if they do, you pay BIG time for it.

    Re: My trusty green machine

    Lol. Yeah, his dad definitely had his trusty, well-worn in chair. No tape on mine, though! Lol. I’m looking forward to the power reclining with the new one. The handle is stiff on this recliner...
  4. Is the power lumbar feature on Omnia recliner worth it?

    Hi! I’m debating whether I should call my local dealer to add the power lumbar to the Omnia recliner I ordered awhile back. At first I didn’t think it was necessary, but now I’m feeling it might be...
  5. Re: Smart Furniture Shopping December 2021

    Exactly. Patience is the key. My local furniture guy said the same thing about being in a queue. He said once they start working on our pieces, it’s not that long. But to remember we have many...
  6. Re: Smart Furniture Shopping December 2021

    That makes me glad we recently ordered our reclining sofa and recliner. It’s supposed to take 9 months before it arrives, but that’s okay. It will give us something to look forward to, similar to a...
  7. Re: B-Y Married Leather program vs USA made brands

    Thank you, Duane. This is the reassurance that I got from you when I read your feelings on Chinese leather in an earlier thread. I agree about the maintenance of leather. In those little...
  8. Re: B-Y Married Leather program vs USA made brands

    Hi Sue,

    I went directly to the Omnia website and then clicked on Leather up on top. I’ve gone several times. It doesn’t show the leather grades, although I’ve seen them in my furniture dealer’s...
  9. Re: B-Y Married Leather program vs USA made brands

    14236142351423414234Sue, I found more descriptions of some of their leathers and where they’re from and finished. I didn’t screen shoot all the higher grades of aniline. Some of these are also...

    Re: My trusty green machine

    They sure don’t. Nor does La-Z-Boy, as we found out with the fabric junk we bought 15 years after this Lane recliner.
  11. Re: B-Y Married Leather program vs USA made brands

    Sue,

    True, I had said you mentioned it, just as my furniture guy here did to me. He said he doesn’t work with anyone whose furniture is made in China. As for this particular Grade 3 “Eugene”...
  12. Sticky: Re: Leather Furniture and what you can - and cannot expect

    Thank you, Duane. I understand and I knew what you were saying before you wrote it. I also love the look of pure aniline and the natural patina. And later for our front room we very well may go...
  13. Re: B-Y Married Leather program vs USA made brands

    Sue, it’s funny you mentioned Omnia growing leaps and bounds from when it was just a small company. My own local guy said the same thing, and in fact, he said that he feels we’re hitting a sweet...

    My trusty green machine

    My old leather Lane Action recliner from 1994 is still taking good care of me. We’re both a bit more wrinkled and faded. Almost 28 years and we’re still watching tv together. That said, in nine...
  15. Sticky: Re: Leather Furniture and what you can - and cannot expect

    I’m feeling the same way. There seems to be a middle ground. The leather on the reclining sofa and recliner I’m purchasing seems to be the best of both worlds. A Grade 3 (in the middle) full grain...
  16. Re: B-Y Married Leather program vs USA made brands

    Thanks. I think I found a good compromise. Omnia makes a Box Chaise footrest style. It gives the recliner a look of box cushions vs the waterfall “recliner” look. But it also has a full footrest...
  17. Re: B-Y Married Leather program vs USA made brands

    Thanks for your reply, Sue. Everything you said makes sense. As for the how much we expect to pay for a power reclining sofa and reclining chair, we fully anticipate paying around $4,000 for the...
  18. Re: B-Y Married Leather program vs USA made brands

    Thanks, Duane. So basically it sounds like even though Omnia uses European leathers and H&M uses Chinese tanneries, overall a piece of reclining furniture will be constructed with better quality...
  19. Re: B-Y Married Leather program vs USA made brands

    Thank you, Duane. I had initially thought I was on B-Y’s website. Then I noticed it said Wellington House above. I’ll do a search here for Married Covers and leather from China, etc. I’m confused....
  20. B-Y Married Leather program vs USA made brands

    I came across this article when the term “Married Covers Program” came up on Bradington-Young’s website. So, now I’m wondering if it makes more sense to stick with Omnia which is ALL USA made. Or...

    Re: Omnia vs. B-Y motion sofa/loveseats

    Since this post was in 2013, did you end up buying the Omnia and if so, how is it holding up after 8 years? Would you recommend the brand? I’m also looking at a particular collection in the Omnia...
  22. Re: Do the better brands make reclining styles similar to Omnia? I like their look.

    Exactly. And this is where I have a “dilemma”. Go with the decent brand Omnia which offers the waterfall type cushion and footrest I want OR pay even more for the higher end brand recliners with...
  23. Re: Help newbie! Power reclining sofa purchase

    Duane, while I like the idea of a stationery sofa and ottoman, my husband enjoys reclining his head and torso back in addition to having his legs up. Is there such a sofa where just the top reclines...
  24. Re: Do the better brands make reclining styles similar to Omnia? I like their look.

    EDIT: The link didn’t come up, so I deleted it. I had compared three B-Y styles side by side. The Reece in 200 series seems to be my favored style of the three. The others were Discovery and...
  25. Re: Do the better brands make reclining styles similar to Omnia? I like their look.

    SueCT,

    I’m actually a bit surprised that the open design seems to be the norm with the higher end brands. If anything, I would think having no gap would give it a richer look. For some reason,...
