Big, dark brown, battered leather is the stereotype image for a recliner, but there’s so much more. Today’s recliners can be more petite, with wingback and modern sleek designs. Some styles don’t even look like recliners until they’re stretched out! And some models are shaped more like chaise lounges, without an option to sit upright.
Recliners come in loads of fabrics, including prints and light colors, some with exposed wood detailing or with welting, nail heads or tufting. Some even have a swivel or rocker feature, and come with built-in heat and massage. What could be more comfortable?
Lounge, sprawl, stretch out. There are so many reasons to add a recliner for comfy, relaxed living. Give yourself a needed break and take time to watch TV, read a book, listen to music or look out at a beautiful view.
- Plan your recliner’s placement so there’s plenty of room for movement in the room when it’s totally open and so the chair doesn’t crash into a wall behind it.
- Place a table nearby for snacks and beverages.
- Add a lamp if you plan to read while lounging.
- Make sure the chair is the appropriate size for the room. If your other furniture is small, select a recliner that complements this scale.
For a new tilt on seating in your home, purchase a recliner. Then lie back and relax!
