20 Recliner Chairs in Contemporary Living Rooms

Ever thought of getting a recliner chair for your Dad?

Since I was a little kid, I always saw movies wherein the dad has this huge, black or brown high back accent chair or recliner chair where he sits on whenever he watches TV with the family in the living room. Since then, I thought, dads should have separate chairs from the entire family.

Do you think this way too?

What’s great about the furniture industry right now is that people can buy a single piece of furniture or a chair for that matter. I could remember a time where you have to buy an entire set for your living room, your dining room or for your lawn. All this have changed as time passed and as our design industry has progressed.

If you could relate to what I’m saying, go ahead and check out this thread and share them with your family and friends!

The brown recliner chair on the top left of this living room is somehow similar to that of the chair you sit on if you visit your dentist except that it is not in white! This space is a nice representation of a masculine space – all colors used in the room are not those that most girls would prefer, but the neutrality of this space is quite inviting and neat.

2. San Francisco Residence

Seen in this seating area, which is dominated mostly by browns, oranges, and beige is a pair of recliner chairs with a footrest. I think this space is made prettier by the giraffe seen behind one of the recliner chairs.

3. Villa Nuevo

This is one eclectic living room where we can see different designs of chairs and sofas that were mixed and matched together to create a certain feel to it. This is what I was telling you about buying furniture that is not necessarily done in sets. A technique like this one, which is mixing and matching furniture, is seen more in restaurants or cafes.

4. East Brunswick I

The crisp and neat look of this living room is attributed to the fact that this space is in a mostly black, brown and cream. I love the fact that this space is minimalistic and great for young adults or for a starting family.

5. Decatur Modern Renovation

This artistic space is a haven for people who just want to sit back and relax after an entire day at work or at school. The colors seen in the paintings and color choices for the furniture and decors is sleek and real classy.

6. Herson Project

A beautiful amount of contrast is seen in this lovely living room. I personally like the sectional with a clean edge on one end and a rounded one on the other. The cream recliner chairs on the other side of the room somehow resemble those massage chairs you can usually see in shopping malls.

7. Possum Trot Residence

A sleek and classic living space with black furniture and contrasting carpet and pillow colors makes this space a modern haven for comfort and relaxation. I like the fact that they used a pair of recliner chairs to compliment the sectional that they chose for this space – it feels like they actually blend together well.

8. Dampier

Here is the popular example of a mid-century recliner chair that you can see a lot on this list. This particular design is a common choice because of how accessible and available it is in the market. If you notice, the designs of recliner chairs in the market are not that many.

9. Millenium Tower

Here is a similar recliner chair from number 8 on this list. It is in white, but basically the same thing! In this space, because of the color of the walls and the contrast it has with the color of the couch, it makes it a great choice than the brown or black one.

10. Texas Chic

The design of this recliner chair is quite bulky. I’m pretty sure that it is comfortable and soft to sit on. The goal of making this space as comfortable is very much achieved – enough seating space, a game table, TV and one large window that allows you to see the outdoors.

11. South Perth Residence

An example of a sophisticated and classy living space you would want to be in every day – hanging out with your family and friends and just talking and drinking all day. The pieces of furniture seen in here are quite neat and great choices in achieving a sophisticated looking living space. With a view like that, it is just smart that the designer actually created a post to post window!

12. Mount Pleasant Residence

Here is another beautiful living room with a twin recliner chair that totally matches the color of the sectional and that of the carpet! As much as most of the furniture and decor in here is in grey, beige or white, adding greens here and there made a whole lot of difference to the look and feel of this wonderful Mount Pleasant home.

13. San Francisco Contemporary Residence

Look at the bulky couch and recliner chair chose for this San Francisco home! Since the living room is small and possibly the people living in this home is just a few, they chose few but larger furniture; but looking at this furniture, you can clearly see that they are soft and really comfortable to sit on.

14. Northumberland

What a beautiful white recliner chair! This Northumberland home shows us how to decorate a small living space with enough seating, decoration, and function! Even if some living spaces do not necessarily add a TV, this space sure added one and strategically placed the sectional for the people to be able to enjoy the television.

15. The Watermans Bay Beach Shack

Twinkle and Whistle sure makes we want to give them a call and ask them where they got the furniture and decors in this cute living space. Although a space this white would somehow be a threat to someone’s well being, this sure looks really nice to live in.

16. Scandinavian Home

Now, this is one living room wherein a furniture set was used to decorate the entire space. From the material and looks of it, the couches and the recliner chair, and even the coffee table looks like it came with them! The color combination of this living room sure is manly but still casual and really comfy.

17. Gloucester Road Apartment

This beautiful white recliner chair sure stands out in this warm room! All the reds, oranges and browns in here make this white recliner chair a true conversational piece! I am not sure about you guys, but I think, I won’t use this recliner chair just because I’d be afraid to get it dirty.

18. California Contemporary

This pair of recliner chairs sure is a cute area for seating and reading. Facing a fire pit, these recliner chairs look really charming. If you would notice, this house is actually really huge and adding tons of seating is key especially when you have tons of people who come over a lot!

19. Bellevue Modern Farmhouse

This area in the house sure looks like a movie area. I am not quite sure why this is not an enclosed area, but I think adding recliner chairs for a movie area is the best choice if you really want to have the perfect ambiance for rest and relaxation.

20. Laguna Beach Custom Home

This last living room that we have on this list is a bit modern but really masculine. I like the velvety finish of the couch and the recliner chairs and the fact that they matched it with orange throws.

All in all, I think that this list is more than just the recliner chairs that were added to the spaces – it is more of the story as to who would be using these chairs while they are at home! It is pretty exciting to imagine that the living rooms with two recliner chairs would be used by the parents in the house and if it is just a lone recliner chair, it would probably be used by the father.
