Tis’ the season… the season of FOOTBALL!

                What better time to invest in a new recliner than football season. Picture this: It’s game day, 20 minutes to kick off. You have your drink, your chips and dip, you’re surrounded by loved ones, and an uncomfortable sofa or chair to sit in. Talk about ruining a perfect weekend. There simply is no better time than right now to buy that perfect new recliner. So what do you look for when choosing a recliner?

Your first consideration should be material. There are three basic choices: fabric, leather, and faux leather. Each have their own benefits and drawbacks. Fabric stays cool and doesn’t stick to your skin. It comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns so it gives you a lot more versatility when trying to match exciting pieces and styles. Though cleanable, it is also much easier to stain. Game day is full of dip and wings so this may be a major consideration when choosing a fabric. Leather is the most expensive but also the most durable. It is easy to clean and very resistant to stains. It provides a luxurious feel and many people find it to be the most comfortable choice. It is also the most expensive and can stick to you when you are sweaty.  Faux leather can be a lower cost alternative. Though the material doesn’t last nearly as long as a top grain leather, it can provide many of the same benefits. It is easy to clean and resistant to staining. Much like a leather, there are not as many color or pattern options when compared to a fabric.

One thing that is often overlooked when choosing a recliner is the chaise pad. A full chaise pad recliner offers support and comfort behind your calves when the recliner is extended. Many companies save money by not putting padding or support in this area. The main problem with this cost saving technique is that the recliner can grow uncomfortable when in use for extended periods. Our recommendation would be to make this a key feature to look for when recliner shopping.
