Help me find a recliner I saw on a Restoril commerical?

Where can I find that fantastic green recliner featured on a recent ad campaign by Restoril?

I knew it was perfect the moment I saw it, looking slender, green, and elegant on a BigPharma commercial. I wanted to take it, to use it, to put it in my living room. I scrambled for the remote, only to discover that the ad wasn't about the green recliner of my dreams, but rather about a rather confusingly advertised drug.

Does anyone else remember this recliner? Where is it from? Where can I get it? Thanks!

There is no easy way (that I know of) to get this info. If you want to do it the hard way, call Mallinckrodt pharmaceuticals and ask them which agency is responsible for their restoril commercials. Call the agency and ask for the account manager for the restoril campaign (or for their email address). Then ask them to identify the manufacturer of the recliner. Possibly, they will have to ask the studio where the commercial was shot, or they'll just tell you that they don't know and you're out of luck.

If you can find a picture (search for the commercial?), or sketch it for us, we can help you better.

I think it was a Requip ad - for Restless Legs Syndrome. You can watch the video and the recliner is shown about halfway through. You can see a little bit of the recliner in a photo on the main page. Maybe email them?

Given the name of the company (what Peep posted) it was actually easy to find your answer: But it's not an answer you're going to like (sorry).
Fwiw, I clicked on the link to see what the recliner you were talking about looked like and I also immediately wanted one. Bother it all.

Heh. I was lusting after that chair, too.

Alas, my dreams of filling the empty spot in my living room with that wonderful chair are dashed...well, thanks anyway. I was half-asleep when I saw the ad, which explains the pharma mistake. Thanks anyway.
