Recliner chairs, a staple of (US) American households, are a veritable wonder when it comes to forms and function.
The chair, which has its origins in a medical environment of all things, is the gold standard when it comes to relaxation for many people. And for a good reason! With built-in massage systems, hidden compartments for remote-controls or magazines, extra wide arm-rests, additional cup-holders or dinner-trays, these chairs are a veritable universe in and of themselves.
Generally speaking, you can distinguish between two kinds of recliners:
A basic model, that comes with a comfortably reclined, often times sprung, seat and a matching footstool.
And the jack-of-all-trades model that comes with a recline-able back, a foot-part that can be elevated, and a myriad of add-on possibilities.
Both versions are equally comfortable, and it’s your personal requirements and tastes that will ultimately end up being the decisive factor when it comes to which type you will want to choose.
We have collected a variety of the best of both recliner typed for under $200 for you, in order to help you kick back and relax as soon as possible!
