Mac Motion Chairs has recently made changes to improve its packaging to reduce damage during shipping. "We have instituted ISTA and above on all packages. We now include solid cardboard corners from top to bottom of the carton. Our Oslo collection features a complete foam encased shell of Styrofoam in the carton," states McCracken.


International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) sets standards to determine the feasibility of a packaged product to survive a normal shipment. "High-quality packaging standards takes precedence when adding new products to our websites," says Matt Holmes, Wholesale Furniture Brokers' marketing manager. "Mac Motion Chairs does use high-quality standards in their packaging to ensure that orders will arrive safely at our customers' homes."

"The 'Oscar' group has options such as refrigerators, cold beverage holders, power recline, vibration massage, wine cavities and top-grain leather coverings," adds McCracken. "In addition to the Oslo collection, there will also be an addition of a new model that will revolutionize the recliner category. Its very sleek, with c-shaped steam bent arms. It has a pneumatic two-stage recliner with an all aluminium 360-deg swivel." states that the eight new Comfort Chair recliners by Mac Motion Chairs increases the total amount of products available to order online to 109. All of the products include free shipping in the lower 48 states.


Mac Motion Chairs has also recently introduced the theater table and Norway collection. "The 'theater table' has created a flexible seating option for the recliner category. You can add this table to 2, 3, 4 or even 5 recliners to create a home theater environment at a fraction of the cost. It's much more stylish with your flat screen TV also," says Tony McCracken, Mac Motion Chairs' vp of sales. "The Norway was introduced in Fall 2010 with a pneumatic height adjustable ottoman. This means that the ottoman can be used for a laptop holder or to elevate your feet." currently offers the theater table as an available option on all Mac Motion Chairs product listings. Online shoppers can add multiple recliners and theater tables from one product listing to configure their own recliner home theater seating arrangement.
