Whether it’s for the Super Bowl season, Netflix binges or that maternal nesting instinct, no comfort beats the souped-up cushy comfort of a recliner. As you scramble for that perfect seat, here are some of the best recliner brands to available to help you make the right choice.


Started during the ear of the great American depression in 1922 by Ray Jackson, the Jackson Catnapper Furniture prides itself as an all American furniture company, assembling its furniture fully in the U.S.A. Catnappers were built for taking quick cat naps by the T.V on a Sunday afternoon, so they make your comfort as a priority as much as you do yourself.

Their recliners are not only stylish and elegant, but come with various features such as heat and massage features complemented with digital musical systems. Catnapper furniture can be bought directly from their factories, but through 2,500 Catnapper authorized dealers and retailers. These exquisite but costly furniture pieces have a limited lifetime warranty for the recliner mechanism, springs and the frame and five-year warranty for the comfort coil seat cushions. Smaller parts have a one year warranty that covers labor and shipping.

There are a few complaints about the quality of their furnishings, mostly being the durability factor, but all in all most users testify to Catnapper’s comfort and easy to assemble recliner features.


The very apt name, La-Z-Boy has become synonymous with recliners such that most people call recliners by this brand’s name. This company with modest roots in Michigan in 1928, paid 25 dollars to an employee with an excellent aptitude for branding. La-Z-Boy manufactures their very famous recliners, sleep sofas, loveseats, stationary couches and other upholstered furniture pieces, whose comfort is unbeatable. They also assemble most of their parts in the US, and their mid-price point for their pieces is well received.

It has almost a thousand fabrics available, and your choice affects the final price of your seat. La-Z-Boy’s customers’ pet peeve is that their designs are a bit too old school, with little regarding style variety. The company though seems to be addressing this aggressively. Their recliner bases, wood frame parts springs, and reclining mechanism parts have a lifetime warranty while the fabric and leather parts have a one year warranty. These magnificent recliners can be purchased through many La-Z-Boy franchised retailers worldwide.
