Kovacs Ohau Recliner Suite

Price: $2,825


For over 60 years, the Kovacs family business has passed down the skill of traditional European furniture craftsmanship, along with an unwavering commitment to innovation. Based right here in Christchurch, the popularity of the Kovacs brand has grown with each generation. The difference? The most comfortable, durable and timelessly stylish furniture you'll own.

Ohau provides full head and shoulder support, with a shallower seat depth that won’t leave shorter people "high and dry".

More compact than some, the Ohau recliner chair and settee incorporates high-back seating comfort with a narrower arm width.

The recliner chair has a fully spring assisted footrest and reclining action, with lumbar support for superb comfort. The inside back cushions are fully detachable for easy access to adjust the fibre-fill for maximum comfort.

The Ohau chair is available as a fixed armchair and a recliner with the space saving ‘wall away’ action (can be reclined fully even when positioned only 7cm from the wall).

Recliner versions:
   - Recliner chair with a fully spring assisted footrest and reclining action
   - Motorised recliner chair to let you recline at the touch of a button
   - Motorised Ezi-out (lifter or ejector) chair for assistance with standing and sitting, especially useful for those with hip or knee problems

The motorised versions have the option of a rechargeable battery, which avoids potential tripping hazards.

The seat height can be easily adjusted to suit your stature.

A further option is a version with a handle to assist putting the footrest up and down.

The price shown is for the item covered in a $42/m fabric. You can have the chair or sofa covered in your choice of any fabric or leather from our huge range to suit your décor.
