Ahh the recliner – beloved by husbands and reviled by wives (and designers) for decades.
When one of our luxury design clients requested a recliner in their basement-game room a few years ago, I choked – visions of over-stuffed, lumpy leather chairs began flashing through my mind. But when we started searching for potential options, I was struck with a realization I’d never thought I’d have…
“Holy crap, there are some good-looking recliners out there!”
Trust me, girlfriend, no one was more surprised than I.
To bring you over to the dark side (or the comfy side?), I’ve gathered the 7 most stylish recliners on the market today.
A high back, delicately curved arms, tapered legs – this couldn’t possibly be a recliner, could it?! Yes, girlfriend, it can. This beauty from MotionCraft has all the style of an elegant sitting room with all the comfort of a man cave, AND you can choose your fabric. Win-win. 😊
Ooh, la-la! This sleek silhouette from La-Z-Boy has got style to boot – just look at that exposed wood detailing! Did we mention its available in a number of fabrics and finishes? We’ll take two, please.
With wide arms and a deep, comfy sit, this stately fellow has, “curl up with a good book in style,” written all over it. Don’t mind if we do. 😊
Joss & Main
We love the rich, camel leather and handsome, tufted back of this Joss and Main recliner. It’s perfect for a cozy transitional den or a modern urban loft.
At just 33” wide, this compact recliner is an excellent choice for spaces that lack square footage. But don’t worry, with luxe, nail-head detailing like this, you won’t be sacrificing style for size!
This mid-century style recliner from Vanguard Furniture has a hidden footrest that kicks out when in use (Can you spot it? I can’t). Vanguard deals only to the trade, so you’ll have to find an online retailer that carries their products in order to pick up one of these bad boys. I’d say it’s worth the extra research though, right?
And last but not least, this swoon-worthy stunner from MotionCraft. Add one to your reading nook, den, family room, home office, or bedroom for an elegant look and cushy sit. 😊
So, have you seen the light, my lovely?
