Recliners & Reclining Furniture
Are you looking for the perfect way to sit back, relax, and enjoy some television or a great book? Recliners and other reclining furniture offer the utmost comfort for relaxing in any room of your house. From traditional manual rocker recliners to more modern power-lift recliners to oversized “big and tall” recliners, there is something out there for everyone. No matter what type of space you’re working with…a compact apartment or an expansive home…find the right recliner chair and reclining sofa or loveseat that will fit your needs at Carpet Weaver’s Flooring and Furniture Gallery.
Types of Recliners
Recliners are a type of furniture that can be used for both relaxation and comfort. Unlike traditional stationary chairs, recliners have the ability to tilt back and forth, allowing you to lean back at different angles. They usually feature an adjustable footrest which can also be tilted up or down depending on your preferences. Recliners are typically made from foam cushions with fabric covers and may also come with other features such as built-in tables or cup holders. Here is a list of some our our favorite recliner styles:
Power Lift Recliner
Power lift recliners are wonderful chairs for those with weak knees, legs, or hips. Also known as lift assist recliners, these chairs lift up and guide the occupant to stand up. Convenient and so comfortable!
Big & Tall Recliner
Some of our customers are looking for what they call a “big man’s” chair, which isn’t really a type of recliner but more of a feature. Carpet Weaver’s carries big and tall recliners that are rated for everyday use of 500 pounds, so they are suited for the large Papa Bears… and Mama Bears…in your life.
Probably one of the best inventions in recent times, the reclining sofa is a couch where an individual seating position can open out into a reclining position. Choose from reclining sofas and reclining loveseats for the ultimate in casual seating comfort for every guest.
Glider Recliner or Rocker Recliner
Instead of a traditional rocking chair, a glider recliner (or rocker recliner) both rocks and reclines. They are perfect for new parents and are usually much more comfortable that the traditional all-wooden rocker. The base of a glider recliner is stationary and some gliders also feature a swivel.
We love to add a swivel recliner to spaces where the focus is always changing. The circular base allows the recliner to turn 360 degrees.
Wall Hugger Recliner
This style of recliner is perfect for those with limited space and who like to sit up a little straighter than other styles allow. The wall hugger recliner is a little easier to get up from a seated position and only needs four to six inches of wall clearance.
Also known as “chaise longue” by the French and British, Americans call this style of recliner a chaise lounge for lounging about. (Translated, “chaise longue” simply means long chair.) A chaise lounge is a chair that that has a lengthened seat that forms its own leg rest for reclining.
