10 Recommendations and 115 Ideas
Genuine Leather Small Reclining Sofa
What we like: Genuine leather upholstery
What we don’t like: Color will show marks easily
Not so good for: Bright color schemes
Perfect for: Mid-century modern spaces
The charming look of this small reclining sofa would best suit mid-century modern spaces. The button tufting gives it a traditional edge that isn’t too old-fashioned. Moreover, the dark wood legs and brown-tan shade of the upholstery give it a cool 1970s vibe. We recommend pairing your sofa with mustard or burgundy shades for an authentic retro look that will make any space instantly cooler.
Crafted with a solid wood frame, this sofa is sturdy and durable. It reclines via a steel mechanism that can be secured with a locking design. If that wasn’t enough, the built-in USB port means you won’t have to miss out on the latest news when relaxing.
Low Recliner Sofa Small Space
What we like: Streamlined low profile
What we don’t like: Legs made of plastic
Not so good for: If you need extra support
Perfect for: Rooms with low ceilings
Coming with over fifty color options, ranging from flaming red to natural beige, this recliner sofa measures sixty-one inches wide. You can choose from a selection of different materials, too. It has a sleek and streamlined design with a low-profile back ideal for rooms with lower-than-usual ceilings. The flared arms add contemporary flair, too.
As this sofa features a power reclining motion, you can sit back without having to do any of the work. Even better, the seat and back cushions are all removable for when you’re doing your spring cleaning.
Sophisticated Reclining Small Sofa
What we like: Slightly weathered look
What we don’t like: Not easy to clean
Not so good for: If you don’t like a lot of upkeep
Perfect for: Extra-narrow spaces
Stunning and sophisticated, this sofa is made in the USA. Though expensively priced, it is upholstered in genuine leather. The frame is also crafted from solid pine as well as engineered wood.
The square arms and tapered legs add a gorgeously retro look to this sofa. It is finished in a camel brown color that will flood any space with warmth. We recommend pairing this sofa with a warm neutral décor scheme. Think taupe, beige, or light brown if you want to color match. Or, be a bit daring and go for a navy blue accent wall to create a chic contrast.
Matte Small Recliner Sofa
What we like: Non-shiny appearance
What we don’t like: Can’t sit two comfortably
Not so good for: Traditional living spaces
Perfect for: Modern living spaces
Upholstered in matte faux leather, this sofa is available in either deep brown or black. It features a frame made out of solid and manufactured wood. The faux leather type used is bonded leather, which prevents it from having the overly shiny look sometimes seen with faux leather sofas.
An excellent option if you’re looking for a cozy loveseat to nestle in a small living room, this sofa has a laidback luxe design. Additionally, the padded foam cushions and pocket spring seat construction will stay plump and firm over time.
Theater Style Small Reclining Sofa
What we like: Stain resistant
What we don’t like: No USB port
Not so good for: Constant everyday use
Perfect for: Home theaters
This stylish sofa is a great choice if you want to create the feeling of a theater in your own home. Able to recline 150 degrees, the seats are secured together through a button and slot connection, meaning they won’t separate when elevated. The frame is made of laminated hardware, making it a good piece to invest in.
This sofa is covered in a durable and easy to clean polyester microfiber fabric. Best of all, the fabric is stain-resistant so any melted chocolate during movie nights won’t sink in. However, the best feature by far of this sofa are the included cup holders and the storage on either side.
Chenille Small Sofa with Recliner
Signature Design by Ashley
What we like: Wider seats
What we don’t like: Fabric isn’t stain resistant
Not so good for: Pets or children
Perfect for: Creating a laidback and welcoming look
A larger sofa is available in the same range as this reclining loveseat. You can pick from gray-brown, khaki brown, or black for color choices. It is constructed from manufactured wood and has a subtly curved silhouette with a flat back top. As for the upholstery, the 100% polyester chenille fabric will feel soft to the touch.
Though it isn’t stain-resistant, the darker colors available mean drink spillages and other messes won’t make too much of an impact. However, we still wouldn’t recommend it if you have small children or pets. Nevertheless, the sinuous springs and plush foam-filled cushions make this sofa a reliable choice that will never go out of style.
Traditional Small Recliner Couch
What we like: Refined, classy look
What we don’t like: Manual recliner is a little stiff
Not so good for: Ultra-modern spaces
Perfect for: Warm neutral décor schemes
You can pick from cocoa brown or mid-gray with this recliner couch. Its traditional look is accentuated by charming but understated button tufting. We love the thin geometric line detail that runs across the back cushions and main cushions, too. It adds an accent touch that’s full of character.
If you hate the feel of hard armrests, the cushion-topped rests of this sofa are perfect for you. Not only do they look good, but they will help to prevent sore elbows. Plus, both seats recline with this loveseat, so there won’t be any fighting over who gets the best spot.
Velvet Reclining Sofa for Small Spaces
What we like: Soft and smooth to the touch
What we don’t like: Higher back isn’t as comfy
Not so good for: Extra-small spaces
Perfect for: Creating a modern luxe décor scheme
Measuring sixty-eight inches wide, this sofa is still small but not the best option for extremely narrow spaces. However, its luxurious velvet-look microfiber upholstery will both look and feel amazing when you’re relaxing. You can choose from chocolate brown or charcoal gray color options.
Featuring pillow-top arms so even your arms can rest, the power recline feature will do all the work for you. Plus, the arms and back are stuffed with plush foam that will feel like heaven any time of day.
Classic Compact Reclining Sofa
What we like: Classic, unassuming design
What we don’t like: Sunken cushions may deflate over time
Not so good for: Retro or vintage decoration
Perfect for: Contemporary and neutral spaces
This reclining sofa comes with five color options to choose from, including gray and white. All options are upholstered in PU faux leather. Featuring a manual-style reclining handle, it has black legs and a frame made of solid and manufactured wood. The seats are constructed of sinuous springs and filled with foam.
This sofa can be spot cleaned with mild detergent and water, meaning it’s a good option if you have pets or children in the house. You won’t have to worry about any marks, either – the back cushions are sewn together so pets can’t tear through them.
Red Small Couch with Recliner
What we like: Fun, bold look
What we don’t like: Will only match a few other colors
Not so good for: Neutral or minimalist rooms
Perfect for: Adding a pop of color to a room
Bold and bright, this small couch will elevate your living room to the next level. It is made of supple red PU faux leather and has a solid and manufactured wood frame. Conveniently, the back cushions are removable for deep cleaning, though they are not reversible. You’ll be able to keep the faux leather material clean easily, too – just wipe with a damp cloth.
In addition to the above, the contoured seats will mold to your body over time so you can get comfy immediately. The chaise footrests will also offer full leg support after a long day.
