Choose the Right Chair for You: Top Recliner Types

Whether you're settling in for your latest binge-watch or just the morning paper, a recliner can be the ultimate space to unwind and relax. At Hayneedle, discover a wide variety of recliners that suit any space from traditional to contemporary. Read on to discover how each style is different and find the perfect pick for you.

Standard Recliners

This is the style that most people envision when they think about a recliner. It provides two configurations – upright or reclined – controlled by a lever or button on the side of the chair, or by pushing back against the back support. These styles come in a variety of sizes from slim designs to oversized recliners. Be sure to measure your space to ensure it fits in the fully reclined position.

Swivel Recliners

Swivel recliners place the chair on top of a circular base, allowing the occupant to easily change the direction the recliner is facing. They may operate similar to standard recliners with a button or lever, or may feature independent ottomans for the foot rest. These styles are available in a variety of materials and configurations to suit your space.

Power Recliners

For the most customizable option, a power recliner puts you in control with the touch of a button. Similar to designs you may have seen at movie theaters, these styles let you adjust the back and foot rest to your exact specifications. Look for a power lift recliner for those with limited mobility who need a little assistance getting up from their seat.

Rocking Recliners

Rocking recliners provide extra movement when the seat is in the upright position. Great for soothing children, these styles can recline using a lever, button, or power option. Rocking recliners are available in a variety of upholstery options and styles, providing a fresh take on a classic design.

Whether you're looking for a stately leather recliner or a stylish wall-hugger recliner, Hayneedle has the styles and features you want for any room in your home. Shop by material, features, size, color, and more to find your perfect relaxation station.
