Flash Furniture Brown Leather Rocker Recliner

We awarded this recliner our 1st place award because not only is it a nice sophisticated brown color, but its over sized stuffed cushions make it incredibly comfortable. We couldn’t get enough of this chair because it seriously feels like you’re sitting on a cloud. The setup is very easy and only requires two people for a proper assembly.

Flash Furniture Plush Brown Leather Lever Rocker Recliner with Padded Arms

Coming in at second place this recliner feels amazing and the dark brown glossy leather gives buyers another option for their interior decorating needs. This recliner is ridiculously comfortable, however feel that that the cushion maybe too soft and wear out faster overtime. If this is not a concern to you and the glossy brown leather matches your space than this is an amazing buy.

Flash Furniture Contemporary Top Hat Berry Microfiber Rocker Recliner

In 3rd place we have a brown cloth recliner that hugs your body in soft material when you sit in it. Not everyone is a fan of leather and we understand that so we made sure to review cloth recliners as well. For the price you won’t find a more comfortable recliner than this. While it may not be the most modern looking recliner its classic comfort will make up for it.

ACME Arcadia Chocolate Microfiber Recliner

In our 4th place position we have a cloth recliner that is priced at an amazing price. This is a small recliner that is both soft and comfortable, but was created for those who are on a budget. If you’re looking for a small recliner that will fit in a corner and won’t break the bank than you’ve found your perfect match. Overall we were very happy with this recliner.

Leather or Cloth Recliner?

This is a debate that has troubled many furniture buyers, because once you commit to leather or cloth you typically match the rest of your furniture to the same material.

First off, it’s important to say that it’s a preference and both have there advantages and disadvantages.

Leather furniture has a very nice look straight out of the box, is very comfortable and is very easy to clean. However, extended usage is more noticeable on leather furniture compared to cloth.

Cloth on the other hand is harder to clean and doesn’t always give that “wow” factor straight out of the box, however with some “tlc” it can continue to look good over many years without showing huge signs of wear. (Just think of the old bright colored furniture from 20-30 years ago that you see at your grandmas old house!).

Also leather furniture is more vulnerable to heat so if it’s hot in your house than your leather recliner will feel even hotter. Cloth not so much.

Things To Remember Before You Purchase

When it comes to buying recliners you should double check these three things before you buy…

  • Does this recliner fit in your allotted space? (Make sure the dimensions are not too big or small)
  • Do you want glossy or matte leather? (Be sure to make sure you know exactly what you’re getting)
  • Is my space far enough from the wall to recline? (Most people forget that it takes about 6-8 inches behind the recliner to allow it to recline)

If you can confirm these three things and have found a recliner that fits your budget than you’re sure to have a good experience!
