7 Stylish La-Z-Boys and Loungers You’d Want To Sink Into

Attention, dads (and bachelors, too): we’ve got the ultimate list of the coziest and trendiest reclining chairs you’d want to lounge in—or sleep in!

Ask any man with his own space what his dream furniture piece is, and chances are it isn’t a trendy sofa or elegant dining table. His dream acquisition is most likely a reclining chair—preferably in soft velvet or leather, and positioned directly in front of a 52-inch LED TV.

The reclining chair or lounger with a pop-up footrest is the perfect man-cave accessory, but this piece sometimes becomes the point of contention between couples and occasionally, the man of the house and the designer. This is because some recliners are incredibly bulky, and not all pair well with a few interior styles. Try placing a huge, sporty-looking reclining chair in a dainty, neoclassical room, for example!

To spare any husband-and-wife arguments, we’ve chosen seven loungers that will satisfy any man-cave requirements, but are incredibly stylish, and sleekly proportioned to fit in snug condo spaces. And since it’s almost Father’s Day, why not ask the siblings to chip in to buy the comfiest seat for dad?

Art Deco lines

Recliners are usually bulky, but this sleek number has sophisticated, Art Deco-styling ribbing on the seat and back, and has elegant arms in curvy steel and leather.

The classic lounger

The La-Z-Boy is the original, quintessential reclining chair which has been around since the 1920s. This durable chair is an all-American favorite, and this contemporary shape and color is a timeless classic.

Fits like a glove

Himolla is a German brand of recliners and sofas that has been around since the 1940s, and they are known for their ultra-comfortable, buttery-soft leather upholstery (the RL staff tested it in the Dexterton showroom, and we almost fell asleep). The Eden chair can recline and extend fully into a sleeper!

If you want to convince your wife to buy a recliner, then you better make sure it will appeal to her as well. This Himolla seat is gender-neutral with its lipstick-red leather and curvy, Mad Men-style retro shape.

Balancing act

This amazing chair looks like it teeters on a tiny base, but it is actually comfortable. It tilts along with the movement of your body in a gentle, relaxing, rocking motion.
