7 Best Recliners for Your Home in 2020

Best Recliners for Your Home

Are you looking for a list of the best recliners to purchase this year?

Recliners offer a great deal of comfort including many health benefits. The best recliners will provide years of use and be passed down from generation to generation.

In this article, we’ll take a look at the best recliners for your home in no particular order.


We simply had to put ourselves on this list because of all the patented features and benefits you’ll only find on a La-Z-Boy Recliner.

La-Z-Boy invented the recliner in 1927. And we’ve collected many exclusive patents from our research & development throughout the years.

This means you’ll only find the following features and benefits on a genuine La-Z-Boy Recliner:

  • Lower Back Support: Receive lower back support in every reclining position to prevent pain and increase comfort.
  • Recline & Rock At The Same Time: Recline your back and rock without having to put your footrest up.
  • 3 Locking Footrest Positions: Adjust your footrest angle with three locking positions for greater comfort.
  • 16 Locking Rocker Positions: Cycle through the most rocker positions on any recliner to find your best fit.
  • 4-Sided Frame Construction: Your recliner will be passed down from generation to generation.
  • Dual Locking Footrest: Your footrest will only go down when you want it to in order to prevent accidents.
  • Contour Cut Foam: La-Z-Boy Recliners keep their shape longer, look nicer, and are more comfortable than others.

Other brands try to replicate these features, however they’re unable to because they don’t have access to our patents.

La-Z-Boy also offers the most available options, upgrades, and fabrics in the recliner market.

We’d be happy to help you find a La-Z-Boy Recliner that fits your unique body type at any of our locations in NC, SC, and GA.
