Francis Harris. Recliner. January 11th , 2018.
Here are the basic three types of recliner available in the market. They are basically categorized according to the number of positions they can recline to: 1. Recliner chair with two positions: These types of recliner chairs reline only to a 45 degree angle and back to its normal position. It is very good and useful when relaxing or reading, but becomes uncomfortable if you want to sleep or think on it. Recliner with two position reclines are the cheapest, because they do not have as much mechanism built in them like the higher models. 2. Recliner chair with three positions: Three position recliner can be reclined and inclined back in three different positions. They are much more comfortable than their two position reclining counter-parts. Hence you can go for them with a normal budget. 3. Recliner chair with infinite positions: In this type of reclining chair you can recline or inline the back and footrest of the chair at any position and angle you desire. This is achieved by a two motor system which allows the back to recline and stay at any position you want. Unlike its two and three position recliner counter-parts, the footrest in the infinite position reclining chairs can be adjusted separately, thus giving you the best and most comfortable experience on the reclining chair. You can use this type of chair for all purposes, including sleeping, relaxing, reading, thinking and much more.
A recliner loveseat is designed especially for a couple. It is similar to a mini couch that has a reclining capability. It offers ample support for two people to recline together. Massage recliners are chairs padded with filling materials designed for therapeutic purposes, comfort and relaxation. It has vibrations installed in the chair that massages the body while seated. There are now patio recliners and garden recliners also for outdoor use. These are built with synthetic fiber as padding and are very durable and last long under normal use. Recliner wheelchairs are offered with unlimited back repositioning feature. It is comfortable and helpful in improving blood circulation. It also aids in sleeping. These recliners are made with standard folding frames, seats up to 24 inches in width and extended support for the head. The reclining mechanism is manually operated through levers that look like a bicycle brake lever.
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.
In the period around eighteen fifty, the French introduced a reclining camp bed one of which reportedly belonged Napoleon III. This camp cot was quite functional for its time serving multiple purposes. Thought to be modeled after the daybed lounge, the camp cot served as a chair, a bed and chaise lounger. Well upholstered for the times, the reclining camp bed was portable and featured padded arm rests and a steel frame. While the Napoleon camp cot lacked a complex mechanism it no less functional than todays recliner designs. The user could sit in an upright, recline with the feet elevated or the cot could be folded out for sleeping.
Pick a recliner that fits in your room. Another important tip to consider when purchasing a recliner is the size of your space. People decorating apartments may have a limited amount of space. This may mean that they need to shop for a smaller recliner product. Those who are looking for a recliner for a den or living room space have greater options. They will discover that there are recliners to fit their interior style. Home theaters are usually large spaces, which can accommodate recliners of various sizes. Measuring your space is a great way to ensure that you find the right sized chair. You will be able to find these chairs to suit any space or taste.
