AvantGlide Sydney


In the meantime the following links might prove useful:

AvantGlide is the division within Dutailier charged with creating the most luxurious ergonomic gliders in the world. Six of the twelve models, including the Sydney, recline with a beautifully engineered mechanism that is secure at any point in its range yet effortless to operate. They utilize a self-locking nitrogen cylinder. All twelve models swivel and glide in the apparently friction-free realm of Dutailier. All twelve 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. Six of the models combine maple in various finishes with leather (or microfibre fabric) and steel. And they can be shipped economically.

The Sydney has its own exclusive feature--an adjustable headrest that gives you two inches of additional height. The extra-large Sydney is about 4" wider and 2" higher than the regular size. We stock them both. 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.
