I never paid much attention to recliners because they always reminded me of my father and grandfather (read: old folks’ furniture). However, Berkline has integrated some impressive technology into their line of recliners, which my folks would never find a use for! I could definitely see myself in one of these chairs, working from home with a laptop, listening to music, or watching a movie… all at the same time! The price seems right in line with your typical, quality piece of furniture, but you’re getting so much more.
The Concert Series recliners ($699), which were introduced last year, already had some technology built-in, including two stereo speakers and a subwoofer. This year, the recliners will also include a mini audio jack so users can plug in their iPods, MP3 players cell phone and other mobile devices.
