Leather High Leg Recliner Chair

Birch Lane™

Designed like a club seat, this recliner with legs is ultra-sleek. It is resistant to stains and mildew, has two positions and shiny nailhead trim, and comes in fifteen colors for you to choose from.

Designer Advice:

A high leg recliner made of leather is easier to clean and gives a more formal feel to a room. Pair it with hardwood or marble floor for luxury, quiet its look with a soft neutral rug, or make it bold with a patterned carpet. Because the cushions are genuine leather they will need more upkeep.

Buying Guide

High leg recliners are armchairs or recliners which have higher legs than regular sofas. Rather than short legs around 2-3 inches in height, high leg recliners have legs that are roughly 6 inches in height. This extra height often means that the armchair itself is also higher, making it suitable for people with back problems or those who benefit from a higher chair rather than sinking into a lower one. These recliners are a great way to relax in the comfort of your home, and the reclining feature enables you to sit back and enjoy the moment. As these items can be costly, let's consider some important factors before buying any furniture.

Although the style is mostly the same, the materials used to make these items vary. Let's take a look at some of the most common.

  • Leather: This creates a vintage look which is ideal if you have a home library or a living room which already has dark or vintage furniture. Leather is normally dark brown or black, so it is not recommended for rooms which have a lot of light furniture. The leather upholstery is normally very well padded, enabling you to experience ultimate relaxation.
  • Fabric: Ideal if you want to be flexible on patterns, fabric is a popular and cost-effective material for most furniture. A lot of suppliers will be able to tailor the fabric pattern to your requirements, and the most flexible and friendly of suppliers may even be able to work with a unique design of your own.
  • French style fabric: This is similar to regular fabric, although is it slightly more cushioned and warm. This fabric comes at a higher cost, but is a great way to increase the comfort of your furniture if you have the budget.

There are many variations you can choose from, ranging from light and subtle patterns and shades to dark and bold designs. The most popular include:

  • Paisley pattern: A busy yet subtle pattern, the best way to decrease the contrast of this pattern is to mix two or three similar colors and shades. This helps to balance the pattern a little, while still adding lots of interest.
  • Floral pattern: Most suitable for a room such as a conservatory or bedroom, a floral pattern is a lovely way to brighten up your day. Some have just one color theme running through them, such as a rose pattern which is mainly red, while others are made from a fabric that contains an array of different colors and flowers.
  • Diamonds: There are two colors used to create this pattern, with one of them normally being white. Geometric diamonds cross over each other to create a neat yet beautiful design, ideal for modern homes and versatile enough to match many different items of furniture.

If you already have furniture in the room you intend to put your new recliner, you'll need to think about the color combinations and what might not work. This is often very subjective, and you should consider your individual furniture items and your home décor specifically to decide what's best.
