Searching For The Right Italian Recliner

Gone are the days of one-size fits all recliners. We have come to know recliners as the “dad chair”. I mean, who wouldn’t want to come home after a long day from work and relax on their favorite armchair? There are various options to choose from when it comes to the type, size and overall look of your dream Italian recliner. Therefore to help you decide, it’s important to know the various types of Italian recliners available on the market.

Today we will go down the list of todays most coveted styles and hopefully help you decide on what is best for you. First up, we have all seen it and therefore holds a special place in our hearts; the classic two position recliner. This recliner has only two positions; fully reclined or upright. Simple right? This is why it is the ultimate dad chair.

The runner up is the rocking recliner, which is a staple piece of furniture in any nursery. This recliner can either have a traditional back and forth rocking motion or for a more modern feel, a gliding motion. Two-position recliners come in a variety of colors, and materials and allow you to fully stretch whenever you want.

Moving into a more modern path, we have the power recliner. Talk about being comfortable. This recliner moves on commands with a simple push of a button. A power recliner is the ultimate chair for those that look for comfortability and versatility. Last but certainly not least we have the push back recliner, and as per its name does exactly that. This recliner allows the user to simply push back to the desirable position.

Italian Recliner Sizes

Overall, Italian recliners also come in different shapes and size and materials. So keep in mind how much physical space you have allotted for a new recliner. Another check off on your list should be longevity. Invest in a recliner that will last you many years by choosing the right material, and finish for years of comfort. Narrow down your preferences, so it’s easier to choose the right fit for you and your homes aesthetic.

Recliners nowadays also offer a variety of features, so this is another checkpoint to have in mind. New Italian recliners like the one Ego Italiano creates feature a head rest for optimum comfort. While some offer lumbar support, for the more down-to-earth persona they come with built in USB drives for music, and let’s not forget cup holders and my favorite, storage. Recliners are a “must have” piece in our homes, because they are so versatile and just so awesome to snuggle in and take a nap.

We completely understand that it’s a very difficult decision to make, since recliners are often the most coveted lounge area in the house due to their comfort. Thus, why it’s also important to find the perfect place for you to shop for it. Here, at Michelangelo Designs we display only the best of Italian furniture.
