DS Tip Of The Week: Our “Love/Hate” Relationship with Recliners

Most of us “love” the comfort of a recliner, but many of us “hate” the look.

Where do you stand?

This week’s Decorating Solutions Tip of the Week comes from Debbie Gray, an interior designer based in our Steinhafels Superstore on High Crossing Boulevard on Madison’s east side.

Debbie explains, “Historically, the majority of recliners tended to be oversized and bulky, making them difficult to incorporate into smaller spaces or with more tailored designs. For years this created a dilemma for both shoppers and designers as they were faced with making a decision between comfort and style – but times have changed!”

She adds, “The furniture industry listened to the feedback from consumers and came up with an answer to this dilemma – push back recliners. These recliners look like a conventional lounge or accent chair but have a hidden footrest that pops up when you ‘push back.’ Available in styles from traditional to contemporary, in both fabric and leather, they are the perfect compromise. Also referred to as hi-leg recliners, manufacturers industry-wide have added these to their collections. This trend means that there is truly something for everyone – regardless of budget or style. So next time you are replacing a chair or redecorating your room make sure to take a look at push backs. Even the most ‘anti-recliner’ shoppers among us are sure to be impressed!”
