I can’t believe I’m writing a post about reclining sofas! Haha! So here’s the deal—I’ve had a lot of people ask me for help recently on finding a reclining sofa. At first, I was quick to dismiss or redirect these requests (“Uhm, how about an ottoman instead?” or “Have you considered amputation?”) to avoid the reclining sofa at all costs. They just get a bad rap, ya know? When I think of reclining sofas, I think of bloated overstuffed sofas with cup holders. Eep!
But then I thought (and researched) more on the topic. One thing about helping people with their furniture is that I’ve come to really respect a wide range of styles and preferences. I have to respect that not all people are willing to sacrifice ultimate comfort (me!) in favor of better aesthetics. I’m probably in the minority, actually. People want a good, comfy couch to sit on. And even better, they want to be able to put their feet up with a flip of a button. I get it!
So with that, I set out on a search. Does such a thing as a good sofa that happens to recline exist? It does. And it can, especially with a little styling and really good room design.
Here are a few that I found with good lines and even better potential.
- “Audrina” Contemporary High Leg Power Recliner – Trisha Yearwood Collection by Klaussner
- Henry Power Recliner in Twill – West Elm
- Transitional Power Hybrid Sofa in Twill – Klaussner via Wayfair

So what do you think? Are you for or against reclining sofas? And if against, did I change your mind? 😉
