We shopped around and soon I started to feel a bit like Goldilocks. Too big. Too small. Not tall enough to support my head when I pass out from exhaustion... etc, etc. Here's a look at what we found:
The gorgeous Canadian made Monte Gliders. I loved the style of these, really modern and clean lined. We tried out a few in store at Westcoast Kids and for the most part they were pretty comfortable, though I did find some of them to be a bit small in person. Biggest issue: price. All of these are in the $1000 plus range, eeeee.

A lot of people go with your standard Dutalier glider and, I must admit, these babies are comfortable. Unfortunately, they're just not our style and I can't justify spending even a few hundred dollars on a chair I didn't really like.

I am happy to say we did eventually find a winner! Enter the Karbon Swivel Glider from EQ3. It bears a striking resemblance to the Monte Grano Recliner but at half the price. Luckily, they had this chair in store at the Bay (did you know the Bay carries the EQ3 line?) so I could pop in and give it a try. It's comfortable, stylish, matches our decor and, compared to the $1000+ options, relatively affordable. Hooray!
Here's a sneak peek of it in the room:
