A new smile in one day


THERE are many reasons for purchasing a new chair. Perhaps you are moving house and feel the need for some new furnishing­s. Your joints may be getting creaky and you crave a more supportive solution, or maybe your favourite chair is simply worn out! Modern reclining chairs work by tilting back and raising the legs to support the body in a relaxed position.
