Recliners | Reclining Chairs

Recliners, or reclining chairs, are adjustable chairs with footrests and backs that can be raised and lowered by the user. Typically paired with a living room sofa, recliners were originally introduced as multifunctional furniture pieces that could transform between being a chair, a chaise longue, or a bed. Recliners are often optimized for comfort by including additional padding and the ability to set various inclined positions including the supine position for sleeping. Although recliners can be very accommodating for the user, recliners are often large and immobile—making them best suited for larger living rooms. Reclining chairs may also be found on airplanes, trains and buses.

Why do I sleep better in a recliner than a bed?

In terms of its form, a recliner is often cushioned with armrests and a headrest that can give more support than a couple pillows. It elevates the legs and feet as the chair reclines, rejuvenating the body by providing proper circulation of blood flow. Sleeping in this supportive position also helps with back pain by taking pressure off of the spine; an achievement that is rarely the result of falling asleep on a standard flatbed.

What is a wall hugger recliner?

A wall hugger recliner saves space in a home as it can be positioned closer to a wall than a traditional recliner. It sits on a track, allowing the seat to move forward away from a wall as it reclines rather than backward.

What is a power recliner?

A power recliner takes away the manual labor needed to operate traditional recliners via automated motors. With the push of a button, the chair reclines and can be adjusted accordingly. Typically, a power recliner will come with more than one button so that adjustments on individual parts of the chair, such as the headrest or footrest, can be made.
