Traditional Narrow Recliner for Small Spaces

Birch Lane™

Description

Perfect For: Antique décor schemes

What We Like: 100% genuine leather

Featuring a charmingly traditional look, this recliner may be narrow but will still offer immense comfort. There are eight color options to pick from, ranging from dark gray to chocolate brown. It is upholstered in a mix of top grain and split grain leather for a subtly worn-in look. Moreover, this recliner is accentuated by an elegant gold nailhead trim on the front frame and back cushion.

Designer Advice

This recliner would fit right in with an antique-inspired décor scheme. For a sophisticated and timeless look, opt for the dark chocolate or tan brown finish. As for furniture, mid to dark wood pieces would match best due to the leg color.

What Users Say

Perfect in every way! Incredibly comfortable, good size for a small space, reclines with ease, and glides back to an upright position just as easily. We love everything about it.

Swivel Detail Slim Recliner for Small Spaces

Viv + Rae™

Description

Perfect For: A nursery

What We Like: Swivel, glide, and reclining function

You can choose from microfiber or linen upholstery with this recliner, which has all the extras you could need. However, it’s our pick for style because of the sleek piping detail that outlines the edges. Alongside the piping, this chair features button tufting detail along the back and a smooth, clean-lined look. Six color choices are available, including gray, mocha, and beige.

Designer Advice

If you plan to use this chair in a nursery, we recommend choosing the microfiber upholstery, as microfiber is an easier fabric to maintain than linen. Both gray and mocha are soothing colors ideal for a child or baby’s bedroom. Place a fluffy rug nearby for a soft texture boost. 

What Users Say

This chair is just what I wanted for a reading nook. It is very comfortable and the perfect size.

Perfect For: If you want a modern recliner

What We Like: Plenty of support

What We Don’t Like: Arms aren’t padded

This recliner is available in navy blue, sage green, or platinum gray. All options are upholstered in velour-feel polyester fabric. It has a pine and poplar solid wood frame in a black finish. Rated best for comfort due to the thickly padded seat and back, it will offer both comfort and support. Additionally, a chaise pad between the chair and leg rest is included for leg support.

Designer Advice

Featuring a clean-lined and contemporary look, this recliner is an excellent option for a living room. The lighter gray finish may look sleek, but the navy blue and sage green finishes won’t show marks as much as the gray would.

What Users Say

This is a great chair. It is exactly like the picture. The padding is very comfortable and the color is great.
