Recliner. Thursday , December 21st , 2017 - 18:48:39 PM
In the late eighteen hundreds, a number of designs emerged for motion chairs. Typically made of wood, with a padded seat and back, these early recliners may have been more conversation piece than a furniture staple like a chair or sofa. Designs from France and America often featured what was referred to as document or a book holder. Two American cousins, Knabush and Shoemaker, are credited with gaining the patent on a wooden recliner. There was nothing remarkable about the design as it resembled a wooden beach recliner. The difference between this and other recliners was the patent. Issued in nineteen twenty eight, the patent led to the founding of LayZBoy. It would not be until nineteen thirty one that the cousins would patent an upholstered model with a mechanical movement. It would not be until nineteen forty seven that a competing company would add a built in foot rest. The addition of a foot rest would become a standard part of recliner design.
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.
The third level of recliner is massage chair recliners. The main difference with a massage recliner is that it has a roller mechanism for the back. The rollers are able to perform a variety of massage techniques such as kneading and tapping. Most massaging chair recliners have a number of automatic massage programs. They can deliver a full body massage at the press of a button. There are a number of specialized programs to meet a diversity of needs. Many massage chairs have manual massage modes. This enables you to target a specific area with a specific technique. This is great for targeting a sore spot or avoiding areas that you do not want to apply a massage. Massaging chairs come with an LCD on the remote control. This enables you to see the activities of the massage chair in real time. Massage chairs enable you to select a variety of different massage treatments when you need them.
