AvantGlide is the division within Dutailier charged with creating the most luxurious ergonomic gliders in the world. All models recline, swivel, and glide in the apparently friction-free realm of Dutailier. All models have ergonomically sophisticated head and lumbar support. They all come with the gliding, ergonomically angled ottoman that distributes weight all along the calves rather than on your heels. All models are available in a terrific spectrum of leathers and microfibre fabrics. And they can be shipped economically.

The Chicago, San Rafael, and Dallas models have their gliding mechanism, and that of the ottoman, enclosed within a high-tech plastic cowling over a metal base. Wood bases for the chair and ottoman (see photo at bottom right) are also available in four finishes. These chairs are quite wide and high and luxurious. They are excellent chairs for a home theater. The Chicago (left photo above, and below left) has wide arms and a gently curving crown. We prefer it to the Dallas (below right). The San Rafael (above right) is notable for its lower back support. We stock our AvantGlides with an additional feature--the multiposition lock that allows you to restrain the gliding mechanism when you feel like doing so.
