I think it was in 2010 that I bought my current recliner. I was actually shopping for carpets in AFS, and they had it on display as a customer return. The salesman said the customer had bought a full suite, including the recliner, and then found they didn’t have room for all the furniture they had purchased.
Whether that was true or not, I don’t know, but ended up buying a decent new manual recliner for just 99 quid. The colour was a kind of bright peach, but I didn’t care – I liked it.
