Learning to Love the Modern Recliners
Does the word recliner send a chill down your spine? Perhaps you get images flooding your mind of the one Archie Bunker used to practically live in on as he spewed forth nonsense on the controversial sitcom All in the Family? It would make sense, as this seat was so iconic it is now on display in the National Museum of American History.
But if you can see your way to shake that off, after all it has been more than a few decades since that show was in production, I would like to introduce you to a new era of recliners. You can find them with classic lines, with turned wood accents so they will work in a traditionally decorated room. When it is not in use, you can’t even tell it converts to prop your feet up.
If you like a retro look, you can also locate a recliner with brass nailheads lining the edge of beautiful distressed leather (or new and crisp looking leather should you prefer). Again, this piece looks as though it is a regular chair, without the more modern bells and whistles.
So you see, you can be a recliner owner and live happily in its presence. Should you still be a bit tarnished by its earlier image, then you will certainly be pleased that when it is not being reclined in that it looks like all the other items in your living space.
