Oof, this is tough. There are so, so many midcentury-ish chairs out there. I don't suppose you have any photos where the chair is visible, even if it's not the subject?

If this thread doesn't come through, maybe look for a furniture-specific forum? I feel like this is an answerable question, but you might need some REAL furniture nerds, retired dealers, etc, to say "oh yeah used to stock this one back in the day, lot of QC issues, never did get a build that could take a body-slam," etc.

so much "suburban parent" furniture is sadly in that category. huge overstuffed recliners just waiting for me to flop into them, as I wish I could afford and had the space for an Eames lounge chair + ottoman to get the same effect in a form I like.

Sadly my vote is the giant overstuffed easy chairs that Barnes & Noble made popular. Very cushy and womblike with room to sit sideways. They're enormous and ugly but you can really nest in them.
