March 19, 2020

Recliners are a classic addition to any living room, but there’s so much to take into consideration when you’re looking for that perfect piece of furniture. The best brand recliners offer a wide range of functions, design features, and styles, which means you can find something that supports all your personal needs. From recliners for smaller spaces to the best recliners for seniors, here are the top Southern Motion recliners to suit every kind of living space and lifestyle.

Southern Motion’s Fame Wall Hugger Recliner

Best Recliner for Cozy Living Rooms: Wall Huggers

Looking for a recliner, but don’t have much space for it? Wall huggers are unique recliners that can be positioned inches away from the wall even when fully reclined. This saves you valuable space in your home, especially if you live in a studio or apartment, or have a snug living room area. Recliners like Southern Motion’s Fame have a power headrest option that can be combined with its power recline capabilities, which means you don’t have to sacrifice any comfort just because you don’t have a whole lot of space in your home.

Southern Motion’s Shimmer Lift Recliner

Best Recliner for Seniors: Lift Recliners

Perfect for individuals who have injuries, disabilities, or for people who struggle standing up and sitting down on their own, the power lift is a motorized reclining chair. These recliners lift upward, helping you get out of your chair with ease. Lift recliners come in all shapes and sizes. Southern Motion’s Shimmer lift recliner offers contour through the arm pads and seat cushions, which can help support any aches and pains. You can also choose from 380 fabrics and leathers, because practicality and style should never be exclusive.

Southern Motion’s Excel Chair & ½

Best Recliner for Couples: Chair & ½s 

Like the name suggests, this type of recliner provides the space of one and a half chairs. It’s the ideal recliner for a romantic couple’s night in or just to enjoy by yourself! Southern Motion’s Excel Chair & ½ makes an afternoon reading session or movie night even more relaxing thanks to its intricate back cushion. The horizontal partition in the middle of the kidney back ensures stylish stabilization for long-lasting comfort. Unlike most recliners designed for comfort, this recliner has a cutting-edge style that will work in even the most modern home design.

Southern Motion’s Bombay Recliner

Best Recliner for Millennials: Recliners with USB Ports

If there’s one thing this generation can’t get enough of its lifestyle-enhancing technology. Power recliners with USB Ports unite comfort with technological advancements that will resonate with anyone (not just millennials). Southern Motion’s Elevate Collection contains the perfect examples. The silent power motion recline and optional power headrest systems allow for an infinite number of settings, so you can get your recliner just the way you like it. USB ports come standard in all Elevate products.

Southern Motion’s Colby Rocker Recliner

Best Recliner for Families with Young Children: Gliders

Thanks to their sturdy steel frames, gliders allow you to gently glide back and forth while sitting comfortably. This can be very relaxing for anyone using a recliner, but especially for parents with babies and young children. Southern Motion’s Colby glider is a great example of this kind of recliner. With its oversized shape, clean track arms, and generous cushioning, it’s a practical piece of furniture that can lull anyone into a relaxing sleep. What’s more, with hundreds of special order fabrics and leathers to choose from, you can customize this recliner to match your interior design style or to be more child friendly.

Southern Motion’s Full Ride Recliner

Best Recliner for Relaxation: Zero Gravity and Next Level

Whether you suffer from back pain or just enjoy the opportunity to relax at the end of a long day, Southern Motion offers the perfect solutions. 

Recliners are a great way to incorporate comfort and support into your daily lifestyle. You can up the relaxation by adding the SoCozi massage system to a number of recliners, such as Southern Motion’s Full Ride recliner. This advanced technology combines air cell design, heat therapy, and lumbar support to help you unwind and renew.

Need to crank up the therapy? A Zero Gravity recliner could be just what the doctor ordered. By mimicking the position of astronauts in space, these Southern Motion recliners allow you to achieve the ideal weight distribution and reduce the stress on your body. This can help improve blood circulation and lung capacity while reducing joint swelling and back pain.

Southern Motion’s Next Level Collection makes the reclining experience even more comfortable and therapeutic. The innovative mechanism allows you to recline with your feet above your heart, as with Zero Gravity,  while the extended ottoman provides three inches of extra length in full recline. This optimizes your circulation and takes the pressure off your neck, back, and legs for an unparalleled furniture experience.
