These days recliners come in different shapes, styles, and designs. Some look like the traditional one, while other recliners don’t look like recliners at all. Today’s modern recliners offer a lot more variety and comfort. Modern recliners do not really appear like recliners; most of them look like stylish armchairs or trendy loveseats. So, if you want to have a recliner that doesn’t look like a recliner, here are some bright ideas for you.

  • Legs – Most traditional recliners were square and antiquated stuff that do not show legs. However, modern recliners are trendy and often exhibit a fashionable, well-carved wooden leg. They look like a foundation of a posh and a chic armchair.
  • Upholstery – Just like legs upholstery is one of the most important aspects when buying a recliner. Old recliners usually use easy-to-clean vinyl faux leather that does not last longer than you expect. Modern recliners, on the other hand, offer a variety of upholstery materials and fabrics to choose from. It ranges from simple cotton fabric to classy and premium leather upholstery.
  • Body style – If you are traditional and old fashioned, you can still choose the old-style recliners or the classic wingback chairs.  However, if you are the trendy and fashionable type, you may opt for the neo-modern furnishings with exotic styles. Lastly, most modern recliners offer zero clearance or gravity-free lawn chairs.
