7 Best Reclining Sofas of 2022

West Elm

Obviously, recliner sofas are damn useful. With the simple touch of a button, or the effortless pull of a lever, you’ll really be lounging — leaning back with CNN playing quietly (which you definitely aren’t paying attention to) as you nap, or binging Stranger Things like you’re in an AMC theater, or unwinding the day in an ergonomic position that feels much better than your office chair. Yeah, reclining sofas are a dime and a half, and bring forth comfortable seating better than those old-faithful uptight couches— as much as we love them. But the one thing holding them back — and holding you back from buying recliners — is that they often look less than elevated, until now that is.

Call them ugly, grumpy, tacky, or “granny” if you will, but reclining couches are lumped into these adjectives simply because we’ve seen too many uncool people (like our parents and grandparents) shamelessly display them at home. But there are still nice-looking, decor-minded reclining sofas out there. We’ve curated the seven best reclining sofas below that are easy on the eyes, and of course, the body. Some even come with a handy USB port or hidden storage, so you can finally let your guard down and say, “Damn, reclining sofas are actually kind of cool”.

2 Types of Reclining Sofas

  • Manual: Sofas with manual reclining are kind of old-school, but kind of intuitive to use, like reclining a seat on the airplane or in your car. There’s usually a handle or lever somewhere that you pull to release the spring which then lean the back cushion backwards and raise the footrest. Manual reclining sofas are also often cheaper, albeit less adjustable.
  • Power: Reclining sofas powered by electric motor instead of a spring are the ones you’ll spot as a loveseat in an AMC theater, albeit with less suave in the control panel design front. You simply push the buttons or use the remote control, then wait for the sofa to usher you in the reclining angle you desire. No sweat. Power reclining sofas, thus, lend you more control over the position, though they are often more expensive and need to be plugged into an outlet.

What to Look For in Reclining Sofas

  • Size: Dimension matters a lot for sofas, but ultimately, it boils down to how many people you want to seat and where it’ll be placed. A loveseat for the basement, or a whole four-seater sectional for the living room? Up to you. But for a reclining sofa, you’ll want to add some space around it to make room for extended headrest and footrest.
  • Upholstery material: It’s just fabric, basically. And thankfully, quite a few reclining sofas we’ve reviewed here give you the option to customize or swap fabrics, in both materials — linen, velvet, boucle, twill, etc. — and colors. But to give you a simple rundown either way, sofas can often come in the water-resistant polyester, the lush and long-lasting leather, and the raised and soft chenille.
  • Features: Do they have cupholders? Or USB charging ports? Or hidden storage in the arms? Or pop-up headrests? Or come with throw pillows? Anything that’ll give your ass and spine an easier time on the sofa is worth considering.
