Recliners That Don’t Look Like Recliners

Daybeds that don’t look like daybeds are a clear modern trend. And why not? Maybe you’re old enough to remember the first sun loungers. You may remember your grandmother’s or grandfather’s bed. It was probably a chunky chair, probably upholstered in faux leather called Naga Hide, and likely a base color like olive green, brown, or black. Today’s couches offer much more variety and – News Bulletin Ahead!!! – Most of them don’t really look like couches. They look like stylish armchairs or sometimes even love seating that goes well with your other furniture. Here are some of the features to look for in your next armchair.

Legs are key. Those old couches were square, chunky things with no legs showing. The Victorians, with their legs covered in pianos, chairs and just about anything else, would have been proud. Modern loungers, however, often feature elegant, well-turned wooden feet and legs that act as the base of any stylish armchair.

The padding is just as important as the legs. You are no longer limited to vinyl faux leather. The fabric is easy to clean, but doesn’t wear down that much over time – check out all the older daybeds, which have plenty of duct tape to hold the stuffing around the armrests, backrest and seat. Additionally, it’s not the most comfortable material to sit on. You can choose from a wide range of upholstery fabrics for your modern armchair, just as many as for an armchair, from simple cotton to fine genuine leather. This means, of course, that you also have a choice when it comes to colour.

The body style is just as diverse. You can still get those vintage daybeds, but you can also get daybeds that look like classic wingback chairs, with puffy 1990s upholstery, clean lines of modern or even neomodern furniture, or even more exotic styles like fuss-free slingbacks. Oh, and don’t forget there are no loungers or gravity-free lounge chairs!
