Reading chair in galley

I am wanting to put a small comfortable reading chair in my galley. It needs to be rather small but comfortable probably with wheels and maybe reclines. It would also serve as an additional chair at the table when eating with four+ people. Not a lot of room in my galley. Any suggestions and/or pics and where you got yours. Thanks.

maybe look at RV type zero clearance furniture. Made for smaller spaces and the recliners can be up against bulkhead and still recline.

Have you looked at the Ekornes Stressless types? Not necessarily the real thing, which is expensive.

Benchmaster's stress free chairs might be a good choice (if they're not too big).

Man....you must have a big galley in that Chubby. I've got a big galley too, but my Stressless and Lazyboy would take up all the floor space.

Are you sure you want it on wheels?
Anything on wheels would travel double the miles the boat would.

Comfy, reclines, nice looking.

AS long as the cook wont be in it while the stove is operating , most anything that fits should work.

To help out a working cook a SS post stuck in a floor socket with a bicycle style seat is easy to retro fit and most important easy to depart when chased by a boiling pot.
