Christian Whitehead. Recliner. January 09th , 2018.
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.
Comfortable outdoor furniture has always been a subject of discussion. Different people focus on different qualities, some people tend to choose aesthetic appeal in a piece of furniture while some choose its utility. So they look for tables, chairs, glider recliners which they can put in their garden. However if you can afford you should have all the tables and chairs that you like within the home. Recliner swings and rockers are a better option when it comes to garden furniture. These are ultimate relaxation chairs and are suitable for any garden, lawn or home.
Taste Changes in Family and Living Rooms. Recliners of this era were typically heavy and overstuffed. When changes in decor style changes so did the chairs. 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.
You can now find a diverse range of recliners available on the market today. Sorting through this vast array can sometimes be quite daunting. For this reason, we have put together some tips. There are many new recliners available that has automatic and electronic features. Additionally, it is important to consider price, comfort, style, fit and the level of automation. The most basic function of a recliner is to recline back. Todays recliners have motorized controls to lower the chair back and raise the leg rest. Of course, there are still those operated by a manual lever on the side. Recliners need to fit in with the room that you want to place them. Placement of your chair should achieve your goals of what you want to do while in your recliner. You also want to consider the decoration of your room and other furniture.
While much of the written history of the recliner starts in the early Twentieth Century, the recliner chair dates back much further. The earliest recliner chairs actually appeared in the late Eighteenth Century, and were functionally similar to todays recliners. The goal was always to allow the user to sit upright or recline back with the legs and feet off the floor. What has been dubbed by many designers as motion furniture, the recliner has been with us in one form or another for over two hundred years. Modeled after the chaise lounge, the long history of the recliner has seen this popular piece of furniture go from simple to fully motorized. Thought to be an American invention, the recliner has its roots as far back as Napoleon.
