We're excited to introduce the Comfort Air from American Leather, a unique and innovative release that moves with your body, glides effortlessly, and is designed to make you feel like you're floating on a cloud.


What is it


The Comfort Air is neither a recliner, a chair, nor a glider. It's a combination of all those styles and more. The Comfort Air moves with your body and is designed to let you lounge without restriction. Although it's technically not a recliner and the seat and the back are independent of each other, it does recline. It's available in six styles, all named after clouds: Cirrus, Cloud, Cumulus, Nimbus, Pileus, and Stratus.


How much does it cost


The price of the Comfort Air ranges from $2,899 in fabric to $4,399 in leather, and it has a matching ottoman available. Recliners, in general, can cost anywhere between $250 to upwards of $5,000 depending on quality, construction, and material. Classic American Leather recliners, like the Ada Comfort Recliner, generally sit around the $3,000 mark. Stressless recliners range from around $1,600 to $4,800.

Who is it not for


The Comfort Air chairs take a little getting used to. During an informal poll of our design consultants and customers when it first came out, people either love it or hate it. Those that love it appreciate the weightless feel it provides when you settle into just the right spot. Those that hate it seem a touch confused and have a hard time finding that right spot. The Comfort Air sits a bit lower to the ground, which can be difficult for those who prefer a higher seat. Plus, they don't lock in place like some recliners, which you may or may not prefer. However, if you hit the perfect spot you'll know immediately if it's for you. The best recommendation we have is to give it a try!
