Double Recliner: Loveseats Perfect for Couples!
Picking a recliner is no easy task especially when you have to pick a loveseat for your family. Something like a big man recliner is great for a single Bachelor and his man-cave but it leaves other people without a seat. Loveseat recliners are made of the same materials and in some cases offer a more relaxing experience. They offer a lot more customizations including things like rockers and sliders as well as consoles with cup holders.
Loveseat recliners go by a number of names including dual and double. Often with these styles of recliners you want to be on the lookout for durability issues with the upholstery, as well as ensuring that you have enough space to accommodate the sheer size of this furniture. This day in age, an assembly is quite easy but some manufacturers make it hard. You should expect to spend a little more on these recliners as you’re paying for a larger piece of furniture.
The Double Recliners
The first loveseat being reviewed and the top of our list is the Homeglance. This recliner has hundreds of good reviews and for good reason; it features everything that you would want in a recliner including things like a glider, a console, and of course a reclining function.
The recliner is made of a bonded leather comprised primarily of polyester; more specifically 74% polyester, 18% Leather, 8% cotton. It is massive measuring lengthwise of 83 inches so you should do your due diligence before purchasing. Most loveseats are rather large, if need be you should check out oversized recliners and see if those are a better option with the same desired effect.
The reclining mechanism is smooth featuring D-ring style handles. These work fairly seamlessly in comparison to long handles. Assembly is also fairly straightforward as the box will come with 3 separate backings and the base.
Pros and cons
- A loveseat recliner with a console and gliding feature.
- Easy assembly.
- Bonded leather and animals sometimes don’t mix well.
- Not a wall hugger.
At the number two spot in another recliner from Homeglance. Like I’ve said in my other reviews, I’m not biased as far as brands, but Homeglance does make some solid recliners.
This double recliner features plush microfiber with faux leather on the sides, and an easy to use the lever action reclining system. The arms, seats, and backs are truly overstuffed.
To note, this version of the Homeglance has a few options coming in at manual and lift. When making your purchase decision, filter the reviews specifically for the one we listed, and every review is 5 stars. The complaints and lower ratings seem to be a result of the other versions.
Set up is fairly easy and can be done in less than 10 minutes. As with most double reclining chairs, they will come with the base assembled and the backings.
If you are looking for a loveseat for your recreational vehicle or camper, this would be a great contender. Many have noted they went with this loveseat for their motorhomes. It’s small enough to get through most doorways, yet luxurious enough when assembled for an RV.
Pros and cons
- Microfiber and faux leather. Best of both worlds.
- Overstuffed everywhere.
- Perfect for RVs and campers.
- None. This is a true value.
Third on the list is the Coaster Home Furnishings dual recliner. The material is a plush textured padded velvet. The size is moderate, sporting 65 length by 37 width. The style is very simplistic, and the upholstery is very comfortable. The padding combined with the pocket coil seating, and channeled backs offers a great experience.
A complaint is you need to push the footrest down in order to close it, could be difficult for smaller folks. With that said, this recliner is definitely built for smaller people, having more modest measurements. If you are taller than 6 feet you might overshoot the headrest and the footrest.
The padding is definitely on the light side. If you prefer a firm mattress, you may prefer this recliner as well. The recliner is still quite comfy courtesy of the micro velvet upholstery.
Like other recliners in this list, setup is rather easy, most manufacturers make them this way now.
Pros and cons
- Firm padding can be a bonus, others may not like it.
- Micro velvet upholstery is unique.
- Reclines 108 – 135 degrees.
- Definitely on the small side.
This is another double recliner by Coaster Home Furnishings. The recliner is made of a bonded leather and also features a middle console with cup-holders and perforated back and seats. The contrast stitch work is also a nice touch and looks very stylish. This is definitely a more modern style that would go great in any living space.
This option is similar to the overall pick but at a more budget price tag. Featuring the same style of material, padding, cup holders, and center console. The recline action is quite easy and putting the footrest down is fairly easy, although locking the footrest may give you some trouble.
The recliner comes in 3 pieces. The two backs slide nicely and snap into the base so no tools are required for setup. In comparison to similar options, you cannot beat the price tag.
Pros and cons
- Well priced and nicely made.
- Made of durable materials.
- It’s a rocking recliner.
- The material almost feels like a plastic leather.
Last on the list is the Furniture of America Blake Chenille. This loveseat reminded me a lot of something my parents had when I was a kid (90s). The loveseat is definitely on the smaller side of this list, but not everyone is the height of an NBA all-star. This dual recliner is truly a classic and gives me that feeling of home.
This recliner has TONS of padding, as they detail it is “generously padded.” The chenille upholstery is great but others may not like it, it’s all a matter of preference. Don’t be thrown off by the overall review rating that two customers left. If you’ve never sat on a sofa with this type of material, I encourage you to go to local store and try it.
It is available in two options, either gray or chocolate. While the chair features extra padding, it is still somewhat firm, combining that perfect ratio of stiffness and cushion.
Pros and cons
- I love the Chenille upholstery, others may not.
- Tons of cushion.
- Definitely on the smaller side.
There are three main winners in our review, and which one you choose depends on what you’ll value most about your oversized recliner. If you’re a true comfort junky, then the Catnapper is the chair you want. The level of comfort and adjustability is good, as is the price.
If you’re looking for something a bit more classic, you won’t go too far wrong with the Simmons recliner. It’s a lovely, traditional recliner and still manages to be comfortable and stylish.
If you have your heart set on the Catnapper, but your children are threatening to spill food all over it, then the Lane Furniture recliner is your best choice. It’s not quite as comfortable as the Catnapper, yet that high-density suede is super easy to keep clean. The high cushioned leg rests will help you get over the Catnapper too!
