    We have these too...they're great, plus high enough that my husband can get in and out relatively easily. We go to Laz-e-boy when we are looking to buy and hunt around for the tallest chairs. They always seem to have something that is high up enough.

    Another mod we have tried is building a box out of plywood that sits under the seat cushions. He uses that at his parents' house on their old, soft, low sofa and it works great (especially for the Thanksgiving post-turkey nap).

The nice thing about these are that they fit together like a love seat and are perfect height for easy transfer. We got them in black leather AND they both have CUP HOLDLERS!!! :}

    The couch I have is the Ektorp by Ikea. It is easy to get up from the floor to the couch and couch to wheelchair. It very comfortable to sit and sleep on. For the kitchen table, we measured my wheelchair to make sure that the wheelchair would fit underneath it. We bought it at Fry's supermarket. We also measured the bed from the height of the wheelchair and did not put a box spring underneath it. Instead, there are the bed frame, wood slots and then the mattress. All three are from Ikea as well.
