Not your grandfather’s recliner…

i can’t even tell you how many times a client inevitably asks when designing their space, “Is there room for a La-Z-Boy somewhere?” This is almost like fingernails on a chalkboard! I’m not saying that those ubiquitous ultra-cushy, almost marshmallow-like chairs aren’t super comfy, but it’s not a look that is appropriate for most spaces. So here are 5 picks for recliners that have some awesome styling behind it:

My first choice is this super sharp looking offering from A Rudin. Simply named the “750“, this could transition into any space seamlessly. The clean lines and slight curvature of the back beckons you to relax and kick up your feet.

Next, the Flight Recliner from DWR is just perfection for any contemporary space. The great open and airy feel of the chair, set up on a stainless steel sleigh base keeps it looking fresh and new!
This transitional piece from Room and Board is the Juno Recliner… With a nod to Mid-Century aesthetics, but the ergonomics and comfort of a traditional wing back chair, it’s a marriage made in heaven.

The Tate Recliner from Vangard Furniture is that beautiful piece that any lover of architecture or engineering would appreciate. The squared off bronze plated base lends itself to an unlimited number of possibilities for applications…

Lastly is West Elm’s Sedgwick Recliner… A simple and understated armchair that can transport you into ultra comfort in the blink of an eye. A great piece without being over designed or pretentious.
