The recliner came in two boxes, as advertised. The seat and legs were in one box, seat was wrapped in some kind of protective fabric and packed inside a plastic bag. The back was in the other box, similarly wrapped. It was an easy matter to screw in the legs and slide the back onto its rails. The back is much shorter than I expected, not nearly as comfortable sitting upright as the old recliner. But it's wider, and the material feels nicer. After I set it up and collapsed the boxes, I drove back to work. BASFA tonight, when I get home I expect at least one cat on the recliner.
Now both old broken recliners are on the patio. Time to call 1-800-got-junk, I think.
