Pulaski Harmony Swivel Glider Review

Pulaski Harmony Swivel Glider Review

When you come home from a long day at work, there’s nothing as satisfying and heartwarming as holding your little baby in your arms. As magical as parenthood is, there is no denying that it can be pretty stressful too, especially when you can’t get your babe to stop crying. That’s where holding your baby in your arms and rocking them in a chair like the Pulaski Harmony Swivel Glider can help.

The consistent movement you will find with the right swivel glider is sometimes all you need to put your little one to sleep even if they started out restless and fighting nodding off. The back and forth movement of this glider is almost tranquil and requires far less effort on the parent's behalf.

This gliding recliner has a much more contemporary and sleek design and is a good looking piece of furniture that will fit in nicely in any nursery. If you don't have a nursery, it would also make a nice addition to any other room in the home due to the available, neutral colors that will fit in nicely with any décor.

When choosing a glider, you may find it better to test drive each of your choices before narrowing it down to the one you want the most. You shouldn't rely solely on the style and design of the chair. Since you will be spending a lot of time in your glider with your new little one, you want it to be comfortable and soothing.

You should also make sure it fits your body type. The back needs to be the right height to help you with your posture, the seat needs to be the right depth, and the cushion needs to have adequate padding and the right firmness. You will find this with the Pulaski Harmony Swivel Glider, but don't take our word for it.

Try it out for yourself after reading this review to see if it will be the best fit for your home and nursery and those long days and nights gliding back and forth to get little one to sleep.

In our review, we are going to talk a little more about the features of the Pulaski Harmony Swivel Glider, and we’d like to give you an overview of what people who have bought the glider recliner had to say about their experience while using it for a while.

After all, you’re going to be spending a lot of time in your nursery chair.

About the Product

The Pulaski Harmony Swivel Glider is not like other gliders you may come across on the market because it doesn’t look like your typical glider. In this section, we will run you through all the features and components you can expect from this chair. We will run you over the specs and product details, and then jump into more detail about the major features that might be important to you.

Notable features of the Pulaski Harmony Swivel Glider include:

  • Individually wrapped, drop-in pocketed coils prevent sagging
  • Generously padded armrests, seat, and back
  • Product dimensions: 32 x 34.5 x 40 inches
  • Contemporary frame features sharply tailored knife-edge arms and handsomely piped detailing
  • Available in 2 Colors: Carlton Dove (Gray), Carlton Desert (Beige)

Comfort

The Harmony swivel recliner may become your new favorite piece of furniture because it cradles you in complete and maximum comfort. Its minimalist and sleek design allows you to place the unit in a small nursery without taking up a lot of space. The contemporary frame features impeccably tailored edging, with piped detailing that gives the piece a polished look.

The chair also contains generously padded arms, seat cushion, and backrests, with plush printed velvet. The pocketed coils also prevent sagging over time. These features are quite valuable, as it adds a layer of firmness which helps you spend time in this chair for long periods of time.

There is often a tendency to conflate “softness” with comfort, when in reality you want a padded chair that is also firm enough to stand up to all the parenting duties you need to get done (and that includes sleeping!).

Style

This swivel recliner looks more like a chair you’d find in someone’s living room, which means once your child grows up and has a big girl/boy room, you can move the glider out of the nursery and into any room in the house, and it will fit in beautifully. So if you are looking for a purchase that you can have for the long haul, this is a good choice.

This is a muted yet modern look for a chair. A big concern with a piece of nursery furniture is whether it will fit with the rest of your furniture. This simple look will allow it to fit almost anywhere. But of course, style is subjective, and this chair does come in a variety of colors and designs.

Features

When you’re sitting in the recliner chair, you can use the swivel base to rotate 360 degrees with ease and in silence. With the combination of the easy to use concealable parachute reclining mechanism (located between the seat and the arm) and the plus padding that is covered in the soft, premium quality fabric, you may discover that you won’t want to get up out of the chair.

A major part of a great nursery chair is your ability to sit comfortably in a variety of positions to complete a variety of different parenting tasks. With the swivel function, as well as the ability to raise the footrest, you will find that this chair can suit your needs in a variety of situations.

Quality

As with any purchase, quality is a major consideration here. This chair is well constructed with quality materials. The base is sturdy and trustworthy, and the swivel function operates smoothly without any jolts that might startle your baby.

When it comes to quality in a chair like this, you probably want something that “just works”. This chair is roomy enough for you and your baby, and many customers have reported it to function without any problems, and for a long period of time. In fact, the next section will look specifically at customer reviews to see what they have to say.

What People Had to Say

When looking at what people had to say about the Pulaski Harmony Swivel Glider, there were a lot of folks who were thoroughly impressed by the construction quality of the unit, how comfortable it is, and the design of the glider.

Customers were appreciative of the sleek modern design, the crisp lines, and the fact that they could move the chair to another room without worrying about it being obvious that it is a nursery glider.

Customers were impressed by how easy it was to assemble - some said it took them less than 30 minutes from start to finish. Also, customers were happy with the size of the chair. One person pointed out that they were on the taller side and they could recline in the chair without feeling like they didn’t fit, or that their head was overextended.

Although there were many positive reviews of this recliner, there were a few people who didn’t have the best experience with it. And in order to get an accurate picture of a product, we have to take the good with the bad. Fortunately, for this product, negative reviews were relatively rare. However, they are still important to consider so that you can make an informed decision.

Many of these customers felt that the chair was difficult to put back into the upright position. They shared that though the chair is very comfortable to sit in when they have their baby in their arms, they aren’t able to put the recliner down without help from someone else.

Another complaint customers had was that the gliding chair they purchased began making a lot of noise when they tried to glide in it. Noise is not ideal when you are trying to care for a sleeping baby.

Others have said that they felt like they were going to topple over, which made them not want to use the glider chair any longer, especially not with their little one in their arms. Customers have said that they wished the chair was a bit more stable so that they could continue enjoying it after the first few uses.

So while reviews were positive overall, there are some issues worth noting from some less than impressed consumers. Our mission is to give you an accurate picture of this product before you purchase it, so it is important that you weight these positive and negative reviews alongside what you are actually looking for in a chair.

Our Recommendation

As you look for quality gliders for your nursery, it’s understandable that you’re going to want a chair that is constructed well and is as stable as it is nice to look at.

There is no denying that the Pulaski Harmony Swivel Glider is a nice modern looking glider that can blend into any décor. Though the chair may look unassuming, you may find it to be the one piece of furniture that you turn to time and time again when you need to calm your baby, feed them, or if you just want to bond with them.

What we like the most about this glider is that it is versatile. While at first, you may have the glider in your nursery, once your little one grows up, and you no longer need the glider rocker, you can take it out of the nursery and put it in any other room in your house.

We also appreciate that while this is a glider, it also can recline, but it isn’t an obvious feature. Unlike traditional recliners that have the reclining swivel mechanism on the outside of the chair, the Pulaski Harmony Swivel Glider has a parachute pull situated between the seat and the arm for your convenience.

Because when you spend so much time in a chair, you are probably going to want to be comfortable in many positions. So whether you need this chair to swivel, to recline, to put up the footrest, or to simply sit straight, you will surely appreciate having the options.

If you’re short on space and you need a small glider for your nursery, this is definitely worthy of your consideration. The chair is available in two colors, a gray color (Carlton Dove) and a beige color (Carlton Desert) that will fit with any décor and other furniture; and for a pop of color, you can always add a bright pillow or a patterned quilt to the backrest of the chair.

While it may be a more expensive option when compared to other glider chairs for your nursery, it is definitely a top contender due to its many premium features, positive customer reviews, and comfort.

With these simple touches, you can bet that your chair will be a favorite for both parents and still be a lovely piece of furniture that will be a part of your home for years to come.

Glider Chair Buying Guide

If you are still struggling to make your decision on a glider chair for your nursery, we have written this section for you. Occasionally, decisions are difficult to make simply due to all the options available on the market. The choice can be overwhelming, but there is one trick to help make it simple.

If you can make a list of the decision making criteria that is most important to you, then you can effectively narrow down and simplify your decision. So in this section, we’re going to examine what we think are the most important factors in making a decision for the best glider for your nursery.

Price vs. Quality

Of course, price is a major factor in any purchase decision. However, it’s better to think of things as investments. What are you getting for the price? Do the features and quality justify your investment?

This is the way you should be thinking about price, and a glider chair is no different. You need to compare the price you are paying against the extra features and the design stability that you receive with the extra price.

As you can see from the features mentioned above, the Pulaski Harmony Glider is certainly a higher priced model. So you need to examine whether the extra features and design make this worthwhile to you. Sometimes, you can pay more now and save money in the future.

Longevity

When you think of longevity, you are probably thinking of the sturdiness of design. You think about the quality of materials and how long the chair can function as if it were new. Of course, this is important, but there is another type of longevity you should consider as well.

That longevity is the longevity of style. If you are very style conscious, and a product goes out of style, you likely won’t want to showcase it much longer. Therefore, when considering longevity, you can get more use out of a product with a more “timeless” appeal.

The Pulaski Harmony glider is certainly built for a more subtle, less bold appeal, which might make it the perfect choice if you are worried about your furniture standing the test of time and fashion.

Features for Your Baby

There can be a tendency to think that any glider chair will work for a nursery. In fact, there are many considerations that are definitely more applicable for a chair that will get heavy use in a nursery.

Most important is safety. These chairs are designed to have no cracks or pieces that could get your child stuck or injured. As a parent, having this peace of mind might be the most important thing in buying one of these chairs.

Additional features that definitely help to have include stain resistance, space for you and your baby, and the ability to comfortably nurse your baby upright or reclined.

A solid locking mechanism is also quite important. Being secure in where you are sitting is a major part of having peace of mind in these chairs.

Conclusion

Thank you for reading our review and buying guide for the Pulaski Harmony Swivel Glider. This is certainly a high end model of glider for your nursery, but we think the features and durability compensate for the price nicely. We would confidently recommend this product.

However, most important is that the product is right for you. So take some time to read through our buying guide to decide on your most important factors in a nursery chair. We are confident that by using our guide you can make the decision which is best for you.
