Merax Barwick PU Heated Massage Recliner Sofa Ergonomic Lounge with 8 Vibration Motors Review

Manual reclining, PU leather, and massage function are just a few of the things this Merax Barwick PU Heated Massage Recliner Sofa offers to everyone.

Aside from the functionality it promises, it will also impress you with its stunning look. Who wouldn’t agree? The way the leather covers this whole recliner together with how the stitches run onto it is so clean. There’s a lot more to say about this Merax Recliner Sofa, so better keep on reading.

They dressed it in onyx black PU Leather from headrest up to its leg rest. You’ll like how smooth the upholstery is. It feels thick and doesn’t wrinkle when you use it unlike other leathers that crease whenever you lounge on it.

Another thing you’ll like about this fabric is its stain resistant feature. This is one of the reasons most consumer choose the leather fabric. It’s easy to clean and easy to maintain. Spilling something on it is not a major problem, right?

While they covered the body with stain-resistant leather, underneath is heavy-duty steel to support this Massage Recliner.

So, how heavy-duty this steel is? Well, it could support up to 330 pounds of weight. It’s impressive, right? This only means that even though you have a significant weight, it could still accommodate you and give you the relaxation you expect from it.


It looks like your typical Massage Chair with an overstuffed back and armrest. It doesn’t look so different from other brands, though. But, what really caught our attention is the double stitching used on it. It makes it look so elegant and adds a cleaner look. It also gives us the impression that the upholstery together with the fabric has great support.

We’ve seen several recliners which need assembly and noticed that most of them have a gap in the middle of backrest and seat when you recline them. But this one doesn’t have the unnecessary gap.

Pads and Cushions

They overstuffed the backrest and armrest with foams, while they leave the seat and leg rest with just the right amount of pads.

The foams they used on the backrest and armrest are soft, and it truly gives the comfort you are looking for. It’s not stiff, and you won’t feel any pain when you spend quite a long time on this Heated Recliner. Also, even though you have a significant weight, this foam won’t lose its shape as other foams do. This is something we like about this item. It did not give us the headache of getting flat after several uses.

So, even though the seat and the leg rest are not as overstuffed as the back and armrest, we still find comfort on it because the cushions are as soft as the ones you’ll find in the back and armrest.


First, it’s not a rocker or a lift recliner. It’s just your ordinary recliner, which sits flat on the floor. So, if you’re looking for a rocker or a lift recliner sofa, then maybe this is not for you.

Well, what’s great about this Merax Barwick PU Heated Massage Recliner Sofa is, it’s manually operated. It means, regardless if you have a power supply at home or none, you can use it. All you have to do is pull the lever at the right side of the armrest, and it will recline on the position you want.

The mechanism reclines smoothly, and you’ll hear no sound while it does its job. On this process, we noticed that the mechanism at the leg rest is difficult to put down. Since it’s manually operated, the only way for you to put it down is to force it back to its original position. The lever is only for extending the legs, and not for bringing it back to the seating position.


The question is, how much it could extend its back and leg rest?

Well, if you are expecting a 180-degree recline, it will fail you. Because it could only extend up to 145 degrees. Even though it could only extend up to 145 degrees, this is still enough to provide a sleeping position for you. You’ll still love the comfort and relaxation you’ll get while on this position.

There are three available positions for this Massage Recliner Sofa. These are the following:

  • Standard Seating Position—The backrest will be at its 110 degrees, and the leg rest is not extended yet.
  • Partial Recline Position—Just like the Standard Seating, the backrest is extended at 110 degrees. The difference is, the leg rest is now on its horizontal position. This is the best position for watching TV or reading books.
  • Full Recline Position—This is the position where both leg and backrest is on the extended state, which is the 145 degrees.

Massage and Heating Feature

Now, we’re at the highlight of this Recliner Sofa.

There are 8-point massage nodes on this one. They positioned all the nodes on the key pressure point of your body.

  • 2 nodes at the back
  • 2 nodes at the waist
  • 2 nodes at the seat
  • 2 nodes at the footrest

You’ll love how they positioned each node. It really works well on helping you relieve the stress you carry with you. And these nodes function in just one click of a button. If in case you experience body pain, stop using it. Because it might not be compatible with your body.

Well, there’s a handheld remote control for this one which only means you need to plug it when you are about to use its massage feature. By the way, in case you worry about where to place its remote control, they sewed a side pocket so you could hide it there.

Yes, we mentioned that you can recline this sofa without power supply, but the massage feature needs it to do its job.

Aside from giving you the massage you need, you can also experience the warm and heat feature on this Merax Barwick PU Heated Massage Recliner Sofa. The thing is, this characteristic only works on the waist part. But, even though it only works on that part, the heat runs all over your body.
