Young Walsh. Recliner. January 01st , 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.
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.

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.
