Top Reclining Sofas to Elevate Your Comfort in 2023

Updated: Sep 3, 2023

1950s style living room with a reclining couch

If you want to comfortably lean back on a sofa at home from different angles, reclining sofas are a good choice. Some sofas have buttons that make them recline automatically, and these are really easy to use. Others have a handle you can move by hand, and these are usually not too hard to use either.

Elevate the comfort of your living space with the fantastic idea of adding a reclining sofa. To assist you as you look for the perfect sofa, we've done the research and found some of the best choices available. These sofas come in different materials and have helpful features like extra storage and USB charging port.

1. Top Pick: Birch Lane Logan 83'' Upholstered Reclining Sofa

Here's why we really like the Birch Lane Logan 83'' Upholstered Reclining Sofa: It looks very nice with its sloped arms and fancy shape. It comes with two pillows that match it. This sofa mixes the style of old-fashioned furniture with modern features. It's easy to make the backrest lean back and the footrests come out – just press a button.

The sofa is strong and well-made with both solid and manufactured wood. The cushions are soft but still give good support. They have springs with foam around them, and there's natural down inside too. Some people have mentioned that a bit of the down might come out of the covering sometimes, but this could depend on the material used. To your knowledge, there are lots of choices, more than 100 different fabrics you can pick from.

There's one thing to remember: the seat cushions can't be taken off. So if you need to clean, you'll have to use a vacuum around and between them. Even though, we think the price is fair for how well it's made and how nice it looks. Plus, unlike many other sofas, it comes to your house already put together.

2. Great Value: Signature Design by Ashley Tulen Modern Manual Reclining Sofa

Because reclining sofas have a special way of leaning back, they usually cost more than regular sofas. So even though the "budget-friendly" options aren't super cheap like regular ones, this sofa from Ashley Furniture is still a good deal. It has comfy cushions on the back and armrests. The seat cushions could be a bit softer, but the footrests that come out when you recline make them quite cozy.

You can make the footrests come out and the back lower down by pulling the levers on the side. This sofa doesn't need electricity because it's manual, so you can put it anywhere in your room. It's covered in soft fabric and comes in three colors that are simple and go with everything. We also like that it comes to your house already put together.

3. Luxury Pick: Pottery Barn Ultra Lounge Roll Arm Upholstered Reclining Sofa

If you're okay with spending a bit more money on furniture for your living room and you want a super comfy reclining sofa, then Pottery Barn is a great choice. The Ultra Lounge Roll Arm Sofa is super cozy because its seats are extra deep and the cushions have soft foam and springs inside. You can make the footrests and backrests move using a special powered mechanism that's hidden in the armrests.

This sofa is really strong and will last a long time. It's made from solid wood that was dried in a kiln to keep it strong and prevent problems like warping and cracking. It also won't easily get moldy. You can choose from more than 30 different ways to cover the sofa, including some materials that are really good at staying clean. But remember, this sofa takes a few weeks to be made and sent to you because it's created just for you. Also, you can't return it. But Pottery Barn will set it up for you in your room, and it comes already put together with their special delivery service.

4. Top Choice for Power Reclining: Raymour & Flanigan Skye Microfiber Power Reclining Sofa

We also really like the Skye Reclining Sofa from Raymour & Flanigan. It can recline with power when you press a button. This makes the back go down and the footrests come out. This sofa is special because you can place it close to the wall – about 4 inches away – and it can still recline fully. That's great if your space is small, and it gives you more choices on where to put it.

The Skye Sofa is strong because it's made from wood that was dried in an oven to make it tough. The cushions are soft because they have foam and special coils inside them. These cushions are comfy but also give good support. The covering is microfiber, which is a soft material that's easy to clean. This sofa is made really well, but the price is fair.

5. Top Pick for Manual Reclining: Lark Manor Elida 88'' Upholstered Reclining Sofa

If you want a sofa that you don't need to plug into a wall, you can choose a manual one like the Lark Manor Elida Reclining Sofa. This sofa is very comfortable and has handles on both sides. When you pull these handles, the backrest goes down, and the footrests come out. It's a bit more effort than pressing a button, but you don't need to be very strong to do it.

The Elida sofa is strong and well-made. It's made from both solid and manufactured wood. The cushions at the back are filled with foam, and the armrests are really soft on top. The seat cushions have special springs and foam wrapped around them. The covering looks like real leather but is actually a kind of fake leather that's smooth and easy to clean. You might need to put it together at home, but if you don't want to do that, you can ask for special delivery, and someone will set it up for you.

6. Top Choice for Back Support: La-Z-Boy Finley Power Wall Reclining Sofa with Headrest and Lumbar

Furniture with lumbar support is made to help your lower back feel better when you sit down and relax. This sofa from La-Z-Boy not only lets you lean back but also gives you good support for your lower back. The headrest, cushions on the back, the seat, and the footrests all hold your body in a comfy way, no matter how you're sitting—whether you're watching TV, reading, or taking a nap.

We also like that you can move the back and footrests together or on their own. The Finley sofa can be put close to the wall because it's made to fit in tight spaces. There's even a USB port to charge your phone or tablet while you sit. This sofa is a bit expensive, and you can't return it, but you can exchange it within three days of getting it. Even though it's costly, we still think it's a good buy because it's made really well and has a warranty that lasts your whole life.

7. Top Pick for Loveseat: Hydeline Venice Power Headrest Zero Gravity Reclining Loveseat

Want something smaller? Think about a reclining loveseat, like the Hydeline Venice. This good-looking couch can fit two people and reclines. It's special because it can keep your body in a comfortable position and take away pressure from your back. It even has USB ports and holders for cups on both sides.

The frame is made from solid wood that was dried in an oven to make it strong and prevent cracks. It also has extra strong corners. This loveseat is really comfy because the cushions inside it have special springs and soft memory foam. The covering on top is real leather and comes in 17 different colors. It might take a few weeks for this loveseat to be made and sent to you because it's created just for you. The price might seem high for its size, but we believe it's a good investment.
