Recliners are often bulky, so we have a line of smaller recliners for apartments, which won't take up too much space. Apartment living can be great, but the constraints of square footage can make furniture buying tricky. Ikea designed these small recliners for apartments specifically, giving the comfort and luxury of a recliner, in a tighter, neater package.
