Designed for life
Our range of lift chairs starts with easy-to-use single-motor models. These are designed for easy mobility and feature easy-to-use two-button remote controllers.
They allow full control of the backrest and leg rest at the touch of a button.
The perfect choice when you need help going from sitting to standing with minimal fuss.
Mobility Help with Power
On the other end of the spectrum, we offer top-of-the-range power lift recliners with abundant technology.
Some models include manual or power adjustable headrests, motorised lumbar motors for the lower back, heaters for a cold day and even the latest Zero gravity seating and reclining positions.
Why Would You Choose a Lift Chair?
Simple, they offer the convenience and the freedom to sit down, relax and then get back up whenever you want.
The freedom to enjoy all the things you have always taken for granted, such as watching television without discomfort.
Why are there so many types?
What we in Australia consider Lift Chairs are basically recliners that will also assist you in getting from a seated position to a standing one.
Regardless of the many names and industry jargon, they are basically all the same thing.
Their primary goal is to help in the day-to-day lives and well-being of Seniors, older adults, and anyone with arthritis, back pain, leg pain, or other debilitating issues.
Sitting to Standing at the Touch of a Button
People often ask about the difference between recliner chairs and, for example, a power lift chair.
Well, it's pretty simple. A recliner chair will help you to relax and get comfortable in any position you like.
Still, it won't assist you in getting up and out when it's time to grab a cup of tea or coffee.
Or grabbing a glass of water if that's your thing, but these models do it all.
Like everything in life, there are many choices and, depending on your needs, can be powered by one, two or even three or more motors.
Safety First - The Reason We Don't Like Poorly Made Models
Grabbing a cheap one from a hardware store or supermarket might sound attractive, and yes, at first glance, the price is tempting but think of the person using the chair and their needs.
Will they be able to get out if it fails? What if there is a power failure? Or if the remote fails, which is more common than people think.
Unlike a TV remote, when a lift chair remote fails, it's potentially a huge problem for someone living alone.
Efficient Service and Repairs if needed.
What about access to easy repairs and national repair service if one does fail?
You can't keep someone needing help to function in their daily life to wait weeks for a repair—or worse, months for spare parts.
We are cautious about who we deal with. As such, we will only supply and recommend brands that can offer fast repairs, carry a full range of spare parts, and generally are built to a much higher standard.
Single Motor Electric Lift Chairs
These chairs have one motor that controls both the footrest and the backrest, meaning they move together. When you recline the chair, the footrest comes up.
Still, in the case of La-Z-Boy, this only happens once fully extended, thus allowing you to eat dinner in a well-seated position.
These models are simple and generally more affordable. Perfect when all you want is practicality and simplicity.
They are also geared, for the most part, to smaller people.
For example, the La-Z-Boy Ascot Bronze is perfect for anyone under 5ft 6 inches or approximately 170cm, as your feet must touch the ground when using the lift mechanism.
Dual Motor Models
These chairs have two motors that allow the footrest and the backrest to move independently.
You can adjust the backrest without raising your feet, providing more individual comfort.
This dual motor style offers a never-ending range of positions.
They are ideal for anyone who intends to or has no choice but to spend extended time in their chair.
A clever choice when you want your back angled downwards but your feet planted firmly on the ground.
These designs can often accommodate taller and heavier people.
Zero Gravity Lift Chairs
These are the ultimate choice for anyone needing to get their feet higher than their hips or heart for comfort and circulation.
Nothing beats the comfort of zero gravity. It allows circulation to improve and takes the pressure off your lower back.
La-Z-Boy - The Platinum Standard
Designed for style and enduring use, most brands aspire to the La-Z-Boy standard. Whether you want to unwind in the living room or find an easy way to elevate yourself comfortably, they are designed to help.
La-Z-Boy caters to different preferences and needs with various models and designs.
Offering a perfect blend of comfort, durability, and style, La-Z-Boy can assure independence and exceptional reliability for many years.
Luxury features, supportive adjustment, generously padded footrests, as well as perfect headrest and lumbar support.
Every Imaginable Option Available
La-Z-Boy covers all possible options, including standing lift chairs that feature the comfort and support of the La-Z-Boy Bronze range, like the Ascot or Harbortown, all the way up to Zero Gravity Lift Chairs like the Astor Platinum or Eden Platinum Plus.
La-Z-Boy models are upholstered in a wide selection of durable fabrics or genuine, high-quality leather. La-Z-Boy does not use PU (Bonded) Leather under any circumstances.
They are designed from the ground up to offer practicality, functionality, and supreme convenience.
Using the cleverly designed ergonomic handheld remote control, which is wired in for safety and a convenient way to ensure that you don't lose the remote, you can, with minimal effort, relax or move into an assisted standing position.
La-Z-Boy considers your safety as a matter of business; the remote controls all have illuminated buttons, no need to turn on the lights.
All models can install backup batteries in the transformer, perfect for returning to a seated position in case of a blackout or electricity grid power failure.
They also back their power lift recliners with a fantastic warranty that includes ten years on the frame and padding and an extremely generous five years on the lift mechanism.
La-Z-Boy Nordic Lift - Modern and Convenient
If you want all of the benefits of lift chairs for the elderly, including premium features that allow relaxation, a seamless transition from sitting to standing, and even heaters and massage, look no further than the La-Z-Boy Nordic range.
They are super stylish and imminently comfortable, indeed unique chairs that must be seen to be believed.
Mlily is a relative newcomer to the Australian market. However, their offering is a simple, budget-friendly alternative to La-Z-Boy or Moran.
Always check with us before buying a lift to make sure that it meets your requirements.
Moran - The Pinnacle of Comfort
Moran is another respected name in the industry.
Their lift chairs are designed with the user's comfort in mind, featuring plush cushioning, sturdy construction, and smooth lifting mechanisms.
Moran models are functional and aesthetically pleasing, bringing elegance to any environment.
Furniture Zone is perfect for innovative designs and reliable, well-priced products.
Their lift chairs are equipped with simple yet robust features, providing users with the utmost ease of use.
Can you still get a good lift chair on a budget?
As a rule of thumb, a quality lift chair can range in price from as low as twelve hundred dollars all the way up to over five thousand dollars.
Seemingly cheap but poorly manufactured or specified lift chairs can be a trap for older people or anyone with a disability.
Unlike genuine cowhide leather, cheaper PU (Bonded) Leather, where the leather is basically painted onto a synthetic background (yuck), will definitely come off.
Non-commercial poor-grade fabrics will easily stain, tear, and wear out quickly.
As for safety, a Lift Chair without a battery backup built in is potentially hazardous for an older person with difficulty getting out.
They could quickly become trapped in the chair in a horizontal position and become trapped.
Whether you prefer the luxurious comfort of a La-Z-Boy, the elegant design of a Moran, or the simplicity of a Furniture Zone lift chair, we have you covered and can arrange every aspect of your purchase.
