Editor's Notes

November 04, 2020:

For this update, we've added the Mcombo 740, which offers heating and massage functions. Its brilliant red pleather is a breath of fresh air for people who are sick of boring beige furniture - but don't worry, it also comes in several neutral colors.

The Esright Dark Brown is another model that offers heat and massage, and it replaces the Esright Power Lift, which is no longer available. We also removed the Bonzy Modern and the Domesis Renu due to availability issues, and the Lifestyle U1294Z was taken off the list because its price grew too high in relation to its reviews, which had dropped.

Another newcomer is the Serta Plush Grey, a chair from a highly-regarded brand that is particularly suited for shorter people. If you tend to slide down in your chair until your posture looks like a "C," consider the Canmov Overstuffed, which has "anti-skid" upholstery. The Bonzy Home Velvet is another soft-touch seat with a coziness that cold-natured sitters will particularly enjoy.

Finally, we updated the information on several items, including the Catnapper Stallworth, the Fanshi Home Irene, and the Pulaski Larson - the latter of which retains its spot at the top of the list.

One would think choosing a nice recliner would be a relatively easy task, not to mention enjoyable too. Unfortunately though, it often isn't. There is a lot of stress associated with making the right decision when it comes to buying furniture. And when it comes to power recliners, it isn't just enough to buy something that looks pretty. You also need to make sure you are getting something that is comfortable and reliable too. Luckily, we've got your back. We've thoroughly researched every one of the items on this list to ensure they can handle constant use without the motor failing, the stitching coming apart, or the cushions losing fluff. The Pulaski Larson definitely has to be the most versatile option, so if you want a recliner you'll never have to leave, this is it. It has a swiveling table that you can use to eat off of or as a base from your laptop if you want to work from it. It also features two USB ports and an outlet, so you can keep all of your devices topped up. Along with the Pulaski Larson, the Canmov Bonded Leather, Ashley Furniture Signature Design Yandel, and Catnapper Stallworth have the most high-end appearance, so if you want to impress your guests with both style and comfort, you'll want to take a look at these options. For those who may want a massage while they lounge, consider the Esright Power Lift.
