Recliners Gains Wide Popularity. When the 1950s rolled around most American homes had a recliner or two. There function and style had grown as well. Although during this time the recliner was viewed as a "Mans" chair. Being able to put your feet up at the end of a long work day was sought after. Recliners became central to family rooms as TVs grew in popularity. This is when it became common place to have a recliner in a home. Whereas before the recliner was a luxury. Also around this time people began to see the health benefits of these chairs as well. With the nature of work during this period, a recliner might have been the only way a man coulee set without back or leg pain.As soon as Father got home everyone knew to vacate the chair.
A recliner, as the word denotes, is a type of chair that leans back or reclines into a comfortable lounging position with the feet elevated and the head lying down. It was first introduced to the market by a company called La-Z-Boy in 1928. The recliners design is based on the natural contour of the body when seated and leaned back. The ottoman was added to the recliner as footstool during the 1950s and became its symbol. The first recliner became very famous that other furniture makers jumbled to ride on its popularity and offered their own versions of this innovative furniture. Recliners are really comfortable and relaxing chairs. They are mostly made from upholstery, leather, vinyl or naugahyde, an artificial leather.

At this point quite a few individuals decided not to have these types of recliners. By the 1970 these comfy relics found their way to basements and garages. In fact this may have been the birth of the "Man Cave" concept widely known today. Changes in taste seemed to lean toward saving space. As many can attest through personal experience, these newer, more compact models found their way in to the living room of the 1970s. However these chairs tended to be in out of the way dens and not the formal living rooms. Some people just refused to get rid of these comfy chairs.
