Recliners Armchairs

Recliners and armchairs

 
 

Some consider an armchair or a recliner a real egotistical piece of furniture. However, to many this is the very symbol of a cozy and relaxed time with a good book and a cup of tea. Regardless of opinion or preference, this particular leisure furniture is the most likely to be excluded by residents in micro-apartments. Space is simply too scarce!

But, what if you could have a comfy transformer chair with more than the reclining function? Would you exclude it then? Have a look at the creative examples below, and try to imagine what your next armchair could look like.

The convertible chair ‘Savion’ by Cortesi Home in Illinios, USA, is a good example of how furniture can have more than one function. Apart from being the comfy chair it easily converts into a daybed and from there into a bed. This allows you to always have an extra bed if you have an unexpected guest.

Another rather intriguing example is the ‘OpenBook Chair’. It was designed and created by the London-based design agency, TILT. It is both a comfy armchair and a bookcase. This allows the owner not only to have his or her favorite books displayed in the middle of the room, but also to have books right where you read them. This ingenious furniture combines everything you need to enjoy a blanket, a book and a hot cup of coffee.

Russian born designer Elena Sidorova found a way to combine the living room with bedroom – or at least to be able to offer a bed to overnight guests. This rather chic armchair can be transmuted into a comfortable bed within a matter of seconds. It even offers storage space for linen, quilt and pillow inside. From comfy chair to ready-made bed in a minute.

Add electric adjustability

Merging multi-functionality with practical comfort and optimal ergonomics can be done, and is absolutely possible without compromising the aesthetic aspects of your design.

All of these chairs could be equipped with an electric movement system, helping you transform your furniture from one purpose to another. Just push a button and allow integrated low-noise actuators to do the job. Try to imagine this done with a personalized hand control utilizing the benefits of modern Bluetooth® wireless technology.
