Meghan Sanchez. Recliner. January 07th , 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.
If you are planning on purchasing a second hand Lazy Boy recliner, or even an "as is" or clearance item from an authorized dealer, your purchase will not carry the Limited Lifetime Warranty available from Lazy Boy. 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. Since the recliner has several moving parts, you would be strongly advised to try it out first before you buy. Buying a recliner over the Internet or sight unseen can be risky. Remember that your recliner could also be damaged in shipping and you will want to take special care that it arrives at your home in the same condition as you tested it out.
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.
Everybody is under budgetary constraints and you should think about a price for your recliner. There are many trade-offs as you go up from the hundred dollar recliners to the thousands of dollars recliners. Check out the warranty coverage for the recliner. You have moving parts in a recliner and you want to make sure that if something goes wrong you will be covered. Warranties vary greatly between price ranges and also between manufacturers. When shopping for furniture, you will want to try some of the features to get a better feel for what is available. You should go out and try a few different recliners to get an idea of what you like. Just check out the features so you understand what is important to you. Dont worry too much about style as there are many available.
When shopping for the leather recliner, make sure you determine what kind of material it is made from. The looks of the recliner is not the most important. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable when sitting on it. If you visit the local store, you can sit down on the recliner and see if it is comfortable. You can recline several times to test if the mechanism is sturdy and working properly. The recliner should be covered with a warranty. If the recliner is not covered with warranty, you should not buy it. This is because you wont be able to return it and get a replacement if it is damaged.
