Lindsay Webster. Recliner. January 15th , 2018.
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 variety of upholstery options include leather, micro suede, and other traditional fabrics. Many of these fabrics are selected for long-term use, beauty and durability. These fabrics have also been refined to where many are very plush and comfortable to the touch. Manual control levers are now being replaced with powered recline systems. A powered recline is a great way to go to find the exact position comfortable for you. These powered systems usually include the chair back and the leg rest. The recline function of these chairs has been automated with motorized controls. Recliner is may use one or two motors depending on their design. In most cases the recline function for the chair back and the leg rest can be controlled easily.

You may not be able to purchase replacement parts for your recliner if it is a discontinued model. However, you may still find a good deal even if you take these issues into consideration.
