If you have lived in America for an extended period of time, there is a good chance that you have stepped foot into a home, more specifically a living room, that proudly displayed a recliner. Perhaps, it was even a matching set. What seems to be an American staple, the recliner definitely has a story of how it came to be. It is quite the journey so we won’t try to explain it in this post, but Apartment Therapy does a phenomenal job at taking you through the evolution of this American living room standard. While you read through that, we’d love to share with you some of our favorite modernized recliners that’ll up the comfort level of any space. Sit back, relax and recline to enjoy our list.
- The 808 Swivel Recliner Lounge Leather Chair with Ottoman by Formstelle offers the comfort of a reclining chair with a modern cocoon shape. The ottoman stool offers maximum relaxation while the hidden mechanisms in the chair allow the adjustment of multiple seat and backrest inclinations from upright to a fully reclined position. ($11,841)
- The Grand Relax reclining chair by Luminaire is all that its name boasts. It is quite grand, offering a relaxing and welcoming silhouette while offering optimal relaxation in its reclined position. The chair itself is self reclining once you are seated and the backrest can be locked in any position. ($13,590)
- The Human Touch® Gravis ZG Chair covers all of your relaxation bases. It combines the therapeutic benefits of zero gravity seating with air massage technology, a multi-zone heating system and remote controlled, powered positioning for every part of the chair. ($5,499)
- The Casino Royale Power Club Recliner is probably the most “typical” reclining chair on our list, but it is far from it. It offers extraordinary comfort with pocket coils encased in high resiliency foam, wrapped in feather down and polyester. ($7,950)
- Modern and minimal in design, the Risa Recliner checks every box to be a recliner without the fuss. The chair reclines to a laid position (as shown above) with the push of the seat. It is available in bold colors (rare for recliners) such as Bonsai and Goldenrod. ($4,795)
- The Flight Recliner resembles a first class airplane seat with a lot more comfort and leg room. The back comes in two heights (tall option shown above) and the Patented reclining mechanism offers an ultra smooth, handle-free operation. ($3,895)
