Modern Reclining Loveseats


Recliners may have gone out of style due to their overly puffy nature, but these reclining loveseats are sleek and super comfortable. Their modern and contemporary lines look current in a living or family room and give an extra kick of comfort with their built-in ottoman. Perfect for an in-home theatre room, they’re cozy for two people to snuggle in together or for one person to sprawl out and use every inch of space. All they need is some popcorn and a good movie.

Our Picks

Modern Power Recliner Loveseat

Modern Power Recliner Loveseat

Winston Porter

What we like: Available in one of 55 color options and fabric types.

What we don’t like: The fabric on the front of the reclining supports wrinkles slightly.

With 55 fabrics to choose from, you can filter your options by color, material type and feature for this modern recliner loveseat. Search for features that are important to your home — indoor/outdoor fabric, pill- or stain-resistant, child/pet friendly, and several others. 

This loveseat is made to order, so it will take longer to deliver than ready-made furniture. Each seat cushion is 22” deep, so you can comfortably slouch down even without using the recliner. The seat back cushions can be removed completely to give more room for taking a nap.


Modern Reclining and Convertible Loveseat

Modern Reclining and Convertible Loveseat

Etta Avenue™

What we like: This loveseat not only reclines but converts to a twin-sized sleeper.

What we don’t like: The cushions are very firm, which not everyone may find comfortable.

This surprising contemporary reclining loveseat disguises that it can convert from a loveseat into a recliner and then into a twin-sized bed. The loveseat reclines with a manual push-back mechanism. The seat back folds fully flat to create a comfortable extra bed.

The velvet fabric is very soft and comes in rose pink, gray or topaz green. Its compact size makes it great for small spaces, although you’ll need 70” of free space to extend the sleeper fully. It needs 13” of free space behind the sofa to recline.


High Back Modern Reclining Loveseat

High Back Modern Reclining Loveseat

What we like: Extra high seat back height lets you rest your head and neck.

What we don’t like: Takes strength to keep it reclined in the second position.

Upholstered with top grain leather, this contemporary reclining loveseat is soft and comfortable. The loveseat manually pushes back into its reclining position. There are two angles you can recline at — slightly reclined and more reclined. Each seat can be separately reclined, so you can choose your own angle of comfort.

Once you assemble the loveseat, it needs to be placed 10-12 inches away from the wall to recline to the second setting. The reclining mechanism on this loveseat is not a wall-hugger. Once it is in its fully reclined position, it will take up 63” of space in the room.

Tufted Back Modern Reclining Loveseat

Tufted Back Modern Reclining Loveseat

What we like: Good choice for a small-scale apartment or living room.

What we don’t like: The off-white color option has a definite green undertone.

Although this modern reclining loveseat weighs only 88 lbs, it can support up to 440 lbs. The back of the loveseat has three reclining positions. You can adjust the metal brackets to change it from upright to slightly reclined to fully flat. It’s perfect for taking a nap in its flat position, but at 62.9” long by 42.5” wide isn’t the size of a regular mattress.

In order to assemble the loveseat, you’ll need to attach the arms and legs to the center part. The arms of the loveseat can be easily moved when you want to use it as a sleeper. Its light weight and versatile settings make it an excellent choice for a dorm room or first apartment.

Modern Genuine Leather Reclining Loveseat

Modern Genuine Leather Reclining Loveseat

Lark Manor™

What we like: Comes with a built-in USB port.

What we don’t like: May not be as comfortable for people over 6’ tall.

Crafted with a metal and engineered wood frame, this modern reclining loveseat is wrapped in genuine leather and leather match upholstery. The cushions are filled with foam and supported by sinuous springs to help resist sagging over time. 

Although the loveseat is not designed to hug the wall when in the reclined position, you only need to place it five inches away from the wall for clearance. Each side of the couch has its own control buttons, and the seats recline independently. The headrests are also adjustable with power.

Modern Fully Reclining Loveseat

Modern Fully Reclining Loveseat

Latitude Run®

What we like: The manual reclining option is smooth and easy to recline.

What we don’t like: It takes significant force to close after reclining.

Durably built with comfort in mind, this modern recliner loveseat uses a side lever to bring up the full-length footrest. When the footrest is fully extended, you can push against the backrest to reach a 130° recline angle. At 46” wide, this loveseat is smaller than others.

The seat bench is one continuous cushion, so there’s no sagging in between two cushions. The seat back and headrest extend to 47.2 from the floor so you can fully rest your head and neck against them. Two handy storage pockets are located on each arm of the loveseat.

Modern Leather Match Reclining Loveseat

Modern Leather Match Reclining Loveseat

Red Barrel Studio®

What we like: Extremely comfortable leather that doesn’t stick to your legs.

What we don’t like: The phone charger can get hot and stop charging.

This modern reclining loveseat is the ultimate choice for comfort and convenience. Its design is inspired by sports car interiors. Comes with a one-touch power control for the adjustable headrest and lumbar support. Other features include a UBS port, wireless charging station, two cup holders with lights and a storage compartment hidden in the armrest.

Adjustable lumbar supports are also included. The cup holders flip to let you set a coffee cup on top of the deep cup holder. When flipped upside down, a bigger lip could be used to easily grab and pull up. 

$2799.99 $2939.99

Compact Modern Reclining Loveseat

Compact Modern Reclining Loveseat

Ebern Designs

What we like: Perfect for a small space yet big enough for two people.

What we don’t like: Reclining assembly is made from plastic rather than steel.

The reclining loveseat comes fully assembled and needs 40” of side-to-side door clearance when delivered. A handle/lever controls the reclining mechanism. Both seats recline separately so you can sit upright while your partner reclines on the semi-firm cushions. 

There are 55 fabrics to choose from, including ones that are suitable for the outdoors and ones that are good for families with pets. We recommend ordering a free fabric sample before making a final fabric choice, as online images aren’t always accurate.

Buying Guide

Reclining chairs are some of the most comfortable, and loveseats are a great item to have in your living room if you want to snuggle up with someone (or have plenty of space to yourself!). Finding the perfect modern furniture for your home isn't always easy, and you can spend lots of time shopping around for what you want. Looking at photographs and designs can help you to decide what you want, and there are several factors you should take into consideration.

The typical length of a loveseat may range from approx. 50 inches to 70 inches, but don't make a mistake of taking it for granted. Take the necessary measurements of the area in which you are planning to place the loveseat. This will give you a base idea of how small or big the loveseat should be.

Loveseats are considered medium-sized sofas, so they are commonly used in rooms with an irregular shape or smaller size. A loveseat can also be used as a companion to a large sofa, which calls for considerably bigger space.

When it comes to material, in many modern pieces of furniture it is good quality leather. It's not impossible, however, to find loveseats made from fabric and other comfortable materials. A good way to make your furniture look more modern quickly is by opting for the items which have more square or sharper edges rather than rounded. You can also add large plain cushions to add a funky modern look.

Unless your modern reclining loveseat is going to be the only item of furniture in the room, you'll need to think about the other furniture that you have and whether or not it will fit in with the décor and themes. For those currently developing or renovating their home, this is an easy choice as everything is being chosen or changed so you can choose your themes all in one go. However, if you are buying a loveseat as a stand alone item, you will need to think carefully about the colors. Many furniture manufacturers will allow you to choose and customize your furniture to a degree, but there may be certain colors in which the loveseat is not available, or you may have to wait extra time to have it delivered.

Traditionally, loveseat recliners were made to fit just two people (hence the name!).

However, in modernity, these types of recliners can stretch to fit three people, even if there may only be two cushions or recliners. Before you purchase a reclining love seat, it’s a good idea to check the measurements to make sure that it will fit in your space regardless of how many people it’s supposed to seat.
