Ever since the 1920s, when recliner chairs were first introduced, they’ve been the ultimate indulgence for people who take their downtime seriously. Simply lean back, flip up the footrest, and feel the stresses of the day drift away. They’re particularly good for anyone with backache or sore feet after a hard day’s work.
Recliner chairs come in many styles and types. Some look more like office chairs, while others look like luxury chairs. When choosing yours, consider the space and style of the room in question. Since most recliners take up a lot of space – and extend when reclining – be sure to take measurements of your room and the chairs you’re considering when shopping for options. Naturally, you should ideally try them out for size by reclining on them in store.
A luxury recliner chair in tan leather will work well in a living room, entertainment space or office with a ranch-chic, Boho or Swedish aesthetic. Pair it with furniture made from wood in a similar shade. Going for elegance? Opt for a wingback fabric recliner in a neutral hue, such as white, off white or grey. For a cohesive look, make sure your fabric recliner matches the material of your sofa covers. In a home with kids and pets, a stain-resistant performance fabric is a smart choice.
Luxury recliner chairs needn’t be single-seaters, though. These days, two-seater and three-seater sofas with motorised adjustable settings are available. We can’t think of a better luxury furniture item for ultimate lounging in your home cinema or bedroom.
