Jewel Duran. Recliner. January 11th , 2018.
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.
If three position power recliners lack flexibility, one can step up to the more versatile and expensive infinite position recliner. Gaining more bells and whistles, the primary difference is the number of motors. Two and three position lift chairs have one motor to do everything limiting flexibility and precise position selecting. An infinite position recliner has two motors, one to raise the foot section and another to recline and lift the recliner. An example why one would want an infinite position recliner over others types of lift chairs would be someone needing to operate the feet section independently of the back. This allows one to raise the feet leaving the chair seated in the upright position more suitable for eating and reading.
If a person needs more flexibility with their power recliner, one can opt for a three position lift chair. These lift chair recliners have all the options and features of a two position recliner but lay further back and more suitable for occasional naps than the two position recliner. Like the two position recliner, the back and legs move into position at the same time. Meaning there is one motor that moves the legs up and reclines the chair back at the same time. Either way, both a two position and three position power recliner will safely provide support for getting in and out of a chair.
The push-back recliner has to be pushed by your back to recline. The basic framework is completely covered with leather and generally matches a modern-looking room because of its sleek design. While the style is more fashionable, the leather materials make it quite expensive. There are many other types of recliners. The recliner sofa is similar to a recliner chair but bigger. It is getting more popular nowadays because it can provide relaxation and comfort to around three persons at the same time.
