I know this is particularly stupid but when we bought a new recliner, we didn't know it came with covers for the headrest and arms. They were in a bag under the chair for about 2 years before somebody tipped the chair all the way over and found them! :lol
:lol Jo, don't feel bad as that happened to us too and we had two of them! My problem was keeping them in place. I had gottent hose screw in pins but they always seems to shift....mostly on the arms. We now have leather recliner in the TV room.
