Recliner chairs that come with a separate ottoman are best used as design accents, alongside other living room furniture, given their unique look that sets it apart from plush sofas and armchairs. While you can choose to select one that matches the other sofas or loveseats, choosing a recliner that mildly contrasts with the other furniture can serve to turn the piece into the room’s focal point. For example, if your sofa set is all white, choose a recliner and ottoman done in a bright splash of color to make it stand out and draw guests’ eyes towards the space.
Whether you’re enjoying family game night or entertaining guests during a party, there is no better place to congregate with family and friends than the living room or family room. True to its name, it is the space where you and your family truly live you watch movies, read stories, roughhouse and maybe get some homework done. As the focal point of the home, it is meant to be comfortable, with a cozy fireplace, practical furniture, fully stocked bookshelves and, of course, a nice big-screen TV.
