Buying Guide: Recliners

Remember Martin Crane (Frasier’s dad) and his favorite chair? That eyesore is what many people think of when they hear the word “recliner”. Contrary to that image, reclining furniture today is available in many fashionable styles that can be included in almost any setting. Hidden release mechanisms, tucked-away foot rests, and wall-away construction provide great function without compromising style.

The options in reclining furniture are virtually endless. In addition to the motions of recline rock, swivel, and glide, some manufacturers include features such as built-in massagers, cup holders, storage cubbies, phones, and even laptop computer sockets.  Power mechanisms are also becoming more common in the US market.

New designs in reclining furniture have been created for home theater settings. BILTRITE Furniture – Leather – Mattresses carries these new designs in reclining sofas, loveseats, and sectional sofas.
