Did you know? It might seem like recliners have been around forever but recliners as we know them today were first introduced in the 1920’s.
Recliners have long been associated with comfort. You may not think of recliners as modern, but today’s recliners offer a surprising variety of new features and a range of styles from traditional to contemporary.
Explained below are the 2 types of recliners that Urban Barn offers and what makes these premium recliners stand out from the competition.
The traditional, two-position recliner is a staple in living rooms around the world. The recliner functions by reclining when a lever or button is pushed that releases the seat back into the down position and the footrest into the up position. This type of recliner is better suited for bigger rooms, as about 3 feet of space is needed behind it to allow the seatback to fully recline.
Both the Belvedere and Vista Recliners at Urban Barn fall into this category (although their looks are far from traditional!)
The power recliner is similar to the traditional recliner except that instead of a lever or a button that releases the seat back and footrest, there is a power button that electrically reclines the chair to your desired angle. This allows the chair to be far more versatile, because the user has control over the recline.
Our Benson Leather Recliner at Urban Barn fall into the power or motion category of recliners. This recliner offers a truly first class experience! Just sit back and enjoy the ride.
Until June 19th, all Urban Barn recliners and leather armchairs are 15% off! Check them out!
