#1 Stone & Beam Lauren Oversized Living Room Armchair

Stone & Beam Lauren Oversized Living Room Armchair

Stone & Beam Lauren Oversized Living Room Armchair is made of solid hardwood frame, down feather padding and moisture repellent, stain resistant fabric.

It’s moderately firm but in a comfortable way, even if you find it too stiff initially it will become softer as you ”break in” the padding. It’s certainly cozy enough to fall asleep in it. It’s also very huge – two adults can fit in it. Upholstery is soft and nice to touch. Armrests are very wide and flat.

Stone & Beam armchair is well built and sturdy. As you use the chair some permanent creases will appear on cushion sooner or later but that’s what you get with down feather padded furniture.

Overall this is a great armchair for a living room. It’s spacious, comfortable, well made and great looking!

 

Details:

  • Chair width: 46.1″
  • Chair depth: 44.9″
  • Chair height: 37.4″


 

#2 FDW Modern Living Room Chair

FDW Modern Living Room Chair

FDW Modern chair is designed to hold up to 275 lbs.

It’s on smaller side however it probably won’t be too small for you unless you are crazy tall. Your feet will still probably hang over the footrest when reclined if you are of normal height but despite that the chair is still pretty comfortable. T here will be some people of average height that will find this chair uncomfortable because of these reasons, but most will find this chair just fine.

It’s upholstered with synthetic leather. Materials are of good quality although for this pricing they obviously aren’t top notch. Stitching and seams are well done. Armrests do lack padding a bit though. Recline mechanism works smoothly. Sturdiness wise it’s mediocre so it’s hard to predict how well this chair will last.

Assembly is super simple and takes like 2 minutes to complete. All you have to do it slip the back part onto the base and screw four legs.

Overall this certainly isn’t the best reclining chair out there, but it’s a decent one and considering how inexpensive it’s it offers good value for money.

 

Details:

  • Weight capacity: 265 lbs
  • Chair height: 39.8″
  • Chair width: 27″
  • Chair depth: 34″


 

#3 Signature Design by Ashley Yandel Power Lift Recliner

Signature Design by Ashley Yandel Power Lift Recliner

Signature Design by Ashley Yandel power lift recliner is designed to support up to 300 lbs.

The chair is on smallish side. If you are over 6 foot tall you might find footrest and backrest to be a bit too short for you. The chair itself is somewhat narrow but not to the point where it causes any discomfort. Despite some of the drawbacks the chair is actually very comfortable. The fake leather is very nice, it looks like real leather and is soft and nice to touch.

Dual motors that recline the chair work quietly but are slow. Footrest doesn’t raise up high enough when the seat is reclined. Other than that the recline function works well.

Overall build quality is good, the chair feels well made and sturdy. Assembly is simple and takes around 10-15 minutes to complete.

#12 Homall Single Recliner Chair

Homall Single Recliner Chair

Homall single recliner chair is designed to support up to 275 lbs. It’s made of steel frame, PU leather and foam padding.

Build and material quality is mediocre. It’s not terrible, but it’s pretty much what you would expect for this pricing – this is not a high quality unit. Because of this it might not be long lasting, it all depends how you will treat it. Assembly is simple.

It’s reasonably comfortable. If you are 6 foot or taller you might find it a tad too small for you (i.e. legs hanging over the foot rest) but it doesn’t become uncomfortable, just less comfortable if you are tall. Size wise it’s on smaller side, it’s a bit narrow too but not too narrow.

Your feet will hang over the footrest but that’s not something that will bother everyone. Other than the small size the chair is actually quite comfortable. There could be more padding on the armrests though. Overall fit and finish is good, however the chair isn’t particularly sturdy so longevity of it might be questionable.
