We've had a Dutailier glider rocker in our living room for the past 20 years. We replaced the cushions on our last one twice and the current set is in need of replacement. The wood frame of the old one was a blonde maple and we decided to go with the darker wood and gray cushions of this new one. What was immediately noticeable is the lighter weight of this Colonial Glider in comparison to the older maple model. The cushions are comfortable, but the angle of the back is slightly straighter and therefore it is not as comfortable a chair as the old one. It's ok, just not great.
I've had mine for years now. If you're looking for a comfortable and nice looking glider, this is it. I've always used a glider and this has better cushions than most for sure My only complaint is that the arm rests twist so the Velcro edge comes up. You just have to rotate it back down but it's a little annoying..
I did A LOT of shopping around before deciding on purchasing this glider. I am a BIG review reader and spent hours upon hours reading about ALL of them out there. This glider is everything. It was extremely simple to put together, came in about 4 parts. The glide is smooth with no squeaking. The cushions are thick and the fabric is soft. The fact that it continues to glide while reclined is a godsend. While I've only reclined a time or two in the few weeks I've had it, I noticed in those times that it's a little hard to go back to the regular position from a recline. I kind of had to jerk it up. Could be something that works itself out the more I do it. But it's not anything that would deter me from recommending this to everyone! Also- the stationary stool that this comes with is well made with a perfect resting space to slide it in the ottoman when not in use. My one and only complaint is that some pieces came with the black stationary stool but no directions were included, so I'm not sure if it's supposed to be attached to the actual ottoman or not. I can't find directions on the internet either! Overall, you can't go wrong with this glider!!!!!
