Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve covered the best massage chairs, lounge chairs with back support, and rocking chairs, here we’re singling out the best leather recliners, as reviewed on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best manual recliner, overall

Ashley Furniture Signature Design — Larkinhurst Rocker Recliner — Manual Reclining Chair

“Very comfortable couch! Easily fell asleep, as it’s very cushiony. For the money, you will be hard-pressed to find a better quality and aesthetically appealing couch. It is very large, so ensure there is enough space width-wise, especially if you’re in a small apartment. It’s worth every bit of space!”

Best manual recliner under $200

Homall Manual Recliner Chair

“This little chair is awesome. I happened to stumble across this on Amazon, a chair for around 100 bucks with good reviews! I had to try it. I’m so glad I did. It’s comfortable. It’s very easy to recline and sit up. So far I give it five stars for its being affordable, compact, lightweight, seems to be of good quality, and the shipping was faster than expected!”

Best home theater recliner

Giantex Manual Recliner Chair Black Lounger Leather Sofa Seat

“Man, oh man! Putting together a home theater where I installed expensive seating and needed individual seats to complete the row and Giantex had just what I needed. It is perfect. Excellent quality, nice material, blended well with my existing theater-room furniture at a surprisingly low price. It even reclines. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

BestMassage Modern Leather Chaise Couch Single Recliner Chair

“Theater chairs are stupid expensive. Even crappy old ones from theaters command a premium. These chairs are the perfect size and don’t have levers or buttons on the side, so you can butt them next to each other in rows. They are large enough to be comfortable but small enough to squeeze into tight spaces: Think Ikea sized rather than La-Z-Boy sized. Honestly, the perfect home-theater chair and a steal.”

Best swivel recliner with ottoman

Flash Furniture Contemporary Beige Leather Recliner and Ottoman with Swiveling Base

“I’ve been waiting for this chair my whole life. It is the most comfortable chair I have ever sat in. I can recline in it or sit up straight or curl up in it. The leather is extremely soft and very comforting. I highly recommend this chair to anyone who has back problems or leg problems and needs to keep their legs elevated. It is just so comfortable that my back doesn’t bother and my arthritis in my hips and other joints feel so much better.”

Best club chair recliner

Great Deal Furniture 299401 Teyana Leather Recliner Club Chair

“LOVE!!!! I’m sitting in this chair right now, quite comfy and very happy with assembly, color, and style. Even better than I had hoped. It’s nice to get what you pay for and not get ripped off. It’s so hard to get a great deal these days!!!”

Great Deal Furniture Lucas Brown Leather Modern Sleek Recliner Club Chair

“I was a little doubtful about this recliner when I initially bought it, especially because the price is low. But this one surprised me totally!! It is a great piece of furniture, very comfy, cozy, easy to assemble, and is the right size. My husband loved it for his anniversary gift.”

Best massage recliner

Esright Massage Recliner Chair Heated PU Leather Ergonomic Lounge 360 Degree Swivel

“This is a great chair for the price and offers so many great bonus features. The heat and massage is wonderful for middle-of-the-night feedings with my infant. It’s slim and fits well in my space. The cup holders are so convenient. This is a great chair for our nursery!”
