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.
The third level of recliner is massage chair recliners. The main difference with a massage recliner is that it has a roller mechanism for the back. The rollers are able to perform a variety of massage techniques such as kneading and tapping. Most massaging chair recliners have a number of automatic massage programs. They can deliver a full body massage at the press of a button. There are a number of specialized programs to meet a diversity of needs. Many massage chairs have manual massage modes. This enables you to target a specific area with a specific technique. This is great for targeting a sore spot or avoiding areas that you do not want to apply a massage. Massaging chairs come with an LCD on the remote control. This enables you to see the activities of the massage chair in real time. Massage chairs enable you to select a variety of different massage treatments when you need them.
When you test out a used lazy boy recliner you may find the reclining mechanism too stiff or too loose. This is something that might be very easily adjusted even though it might have an impact on the price that the seller is asking. If you can, you may want to try adjusting the tension to see if this is a simple fix or something more seriously wrong with the reclining mechanism. Several companies sell slipcovers for Lazy Boy recliners and small problems with the upholstery may be easily fixed by purchasing a new slipcover. If the recliner you are considering purchasing already has a slipcover, be sure to remove it to see if the original upholstery is in good condition. Check with your local re-upholsterers to see if they can reupholster your recliner at a reasonable price. A used lazy boy recliner with a good frame and reclining mechanism may still be a bargain if you can get it reupholstered.
