I’m looking for a comfortable chair for my sitting room, that lets me sit back and rest my head. I’ve looked but unless I want to pay£600 ( which I don’t) then I’m at a bit of a loss. I’m not able to go and look round shops so relying on recommendations and feedback. Anyone any ideas please.

I truly would wait until you can go out and try lots of chairs.
Until you sit in them it is hard to choose.
I ordered one online, it looked so nice and comfy, and it was, for my H but not for me.
It became his chair but was bought specifically for me.
One I did sit in though, and loved immediately was a quite large checked covered one from Next furniture store, it came with a large matching footstool and was bliss to sit in.

Ikea do a nice one, which might suit, in a range of colours, with an optional footstool. About £200. Very comfy, but you would need to try it fir yourself.
I rather fancied the bright yellow one as an accent chair, sorry can’t remember the name, might have started with an S. Just love those Swedish names.

The ikea high back wing chair is Strandmon.
