I am in Syracuse, New York. Local furniture stores only carry the Berkine 094 and 099. I tried both and found them too high and too soft. So I drove to Buffalo and tried the 088 in JCPenny. I like the firmness but I want better shoulder and head support. Looking at the specs, I hope 090 will fit the bill. I wish I can try a Berkline 090 before ordering them. Does anyone know somewhere I can try them in Syracuse, Rochester, or Buffalo areas? I like how the Lazyboy felt but is way over my budgets. If the 090 is closer to the Lazyboy (in terms of the firmness and support) than the 088/094/099, I might consider buying them without trying. P.S. I am 5'9" 150 lbs. and everyone in the household is about the same. Thanks in advance.
