Rated 3 out of 5 by segLA I love this chair...but...
First let me say this chair is as many reviewers said, comfortable, stylish and a great fit for a small nursery. However, I had to give it three stars for one reason, the mechanism for the reclining function is so incredible stiff that I just gave up on using it that way.
-The foot support shoots up so fast and hard (and therefore loud when it locks in place) that the first few times we used it flung our legs in space, certainly not a good thing with a new born on my lap.
-In contrast, I have to use the entire weight of my body to push the back into recline position (and I'm not a small person) and keep it there. Most of the time is just pushes me back to upright.
-Lastly, in order to push the foot rest back down and lock it in place, it takes a huge amount of force specially since my hands are already full with baby. Even my husband the soccer player has trouble with it. And because you have to push so hard to lock it shut, it make a very loud clicking noise that can wake up the baby.
I'm not sure if I just got one with a bad mechanism or if they are all like that. Like I said it's great for rocking, feeding, super comfortable and I love the orange color and matching pillow, but beware the reclining!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mikey Can be used besides a nursery
If you are expecting, already a parent or just looking for a very well built, fuctionable and excellent rocker, this is the 1 to get...what can I say, this chair is awesome. My wife is currently 7 mths pregnant, and this chair is what she uses to relax if she gets tense or feels tired, I even use this chair to relax after work sometimes, the rocking motion is so smooth, I've fallen asleep quite often. I know when my baby is born it will be just as useful and helpful..well worth the purchase. The great thing too about this rocker is that it can be used in any part your house as decor and not confined to a nursery. Great purchse, I'm extremely happy with is Item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HMC15 PERFECTION!!
If you're thinking about getting this glider, don't hesitate! It's incredibly comfortable, stylish and doesn't take up a lot of space. My husband and I are expecting our first child next month and this glider has already been put to good us! Whenever I have trouble falling asleep in bed, I get on the Grano, recline, put my feet up and pass out :) I'm looking forward to nursing with on this too..I couldn't be happier with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EllisMom Great glider
Got my glider just before the birth of my daughter. We have been using since we got home a week ago. The chair is very comfortable with smooth gliding motion and great looking too! It is a bit difficult to get up from it with a child in arms because of discomfort from c-section, but this is temporary and minor at that. Haven't used the recliner option much, but will try for skin-to-skin contact.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SFDC Style & Comfort
Love all the Monte Design pieces, but this one has a modern look that should stand the test of time when we want to move it out of the nursery in a few years. We bought the Grano for the reclining feature, though sadly it really doesn't recline back far enough for me. Still, the seat and glide are so comfortable, this is my favorite place to nurse. I gave up on the boppy and other specialty pillows, and just use the one that came with the chair to prop up my arm. Works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by paga20 Outstanding customer service!
I have been meaning to write a review for a while now and I never have the time to review products but this one is worth it. My youngest son is 4 months and I purchased this glider when I was pregnant. The glider is not only a really space saver, comfortable and stylish; the customer service team is outstanding! My son has reflux and stained the chair I tried to removed the stains as instructed by the company but the fabric color rubbed off ( I purchased the orange) on the cloth. The company sent me a new chair and removed the old one and they were a delight thru the whole process. I highly recommend this product it's worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bucktown10 Dream Recliner!
I just got my chair delivered today and I must say... it's SUPER soft and comfortable! We have a small 2nd bedroom for our future baby on the way, so we needed a recliner that took up little room but still had a sleek design. The Grano fits all my requirements. It's virtually the same height & width as the Luca Glider, but this is nice b/c you don't need an ottoman since it reclines for you = less room necessary. Can't wait to snuggle up with my little one once he/she is born! I'm glad Giggle is finally selling it without having to special order it.
