I was considering getting an Ekorn Stressless Chair, but the prices are a bit out there. Any suggestions for a nice, comfortable recliner? Also, I'd like a fabric that is "cat resistant" with regards to clawing.

Greywolf,
I don't know much about brands, but I'd say go to a reputable chain furniture store. Lane, I've heard is a good brand. IIRC our sofa is made by them. I don't know about fabrics, but leather wouldn't be a good choice. Then again, we have a leather recliner(actually a part of a sectional that was on clearance) that the cats we have had(we've owned it for about 6 years or so) don't ever go near it.
I don't know what chain stores you have down in Florida.

Good luck.

Deej

No opinions on recliners, eh? Hmm.

You can't go wrong with a nice cushy Lazy Boy.

Barcalounger...accept no substitutes!!

I got two of them in my rec room where the big TV is. They've managed to stay functional despite all the abuse I've hurled at them, including a buddy who has to be 300lbs, for over 5 years.

Lots of models? I got your lots of models right here:

A real "lounger" knows that leather is NOT the preferred cover of choice for resting your ass on for 8 hours at a stretch. Ask me how I know!

Mine are cloth, some sort of faux suede stuff I had double coated with Scothguard.

ROFL! Well, I WILL be moving in to my place that weekend and could use some moving help - and THEN we'll do the Kegger!

Seriously, the wife and I have been living on hand-me-down furniture for 16 years now. Now that we are finally making some decent scratch, we're looking at some major upgrades to furniture, electronics, etc. Woot!

I have an off name brand from the base furniture store. It is just as good as the lazy boy that I got rid of before I bought it.

We have three Lazy-Boy recliners at the fire station that have held up for over ten years of daily use and abuse. Mechanically they are still in great shape, they have been cleaned a few times and for the most part they have been great chairs.
