Finding the right recliner for your space can be overwhelming. You may have an idea of what you want, or you may be looking for something that suits your lifestyle and design style. That’s why Decorum is here to help. We offer a wide range of modern living room recliner chairs that fit perfectly in your home. 

Things to Consider When Choosing a Modern Living Room Recliner

When choosing the appropriate recliner, it is important that you consider four main things—the function, material, size, and type of recliner. These aspects of your recliner can influence where and how you can use your chair. 


Depending on the functionality of your recliner, you can get a manual, power, or rocking recliner. Manual recliners can be adjusted by a lever on the side of the chair, or with the weight of your body. Power recliners are adjusted through buttons that control interior mechanisms which move the recliner in the direction and position you want. Finally, swivel rocking recliners provide you with the ability to gently rock back and forth in addition to reclining.


The cover of your recliner can elevate it to a modern fixture in your home. Options such as leather, offer your recliner a classic, timeless, and modern appearance. Or, if you are looking for a more resistant material Stressless has designed a type of leather known as Paloma that is a great option. Finally, dinamica is a great choice if you are looking for a fabric option.


The size you choose for a recliner should be based on what you feel would be the most comfortable. Some people like a smaller recliner that allows them to better control their reclining abilities. In contrast, other people appreciate being able to sink into a large recliner at the end of the day. Whatever your preference choose a size that fits your comfort.

Base Type

Different recliners provide different bases which can complement the modern appearance of your home. Swivel bases allow you to turn around in your recliner and spin in different directions. Star, cross, and signature bases provide a chic, modern look to your recliner. And power legs (found on power recliners) allow you to tuck away your footrest with ease.
