Reclining Sofa with Fold Down Console

We decided to give a few reclining sofas with fold down consoles a try. These can be used both as traditional recliners and in a more modern way as console chairs. Reclining sofas have become extremely popular in recent years as more people seek to relax in an easy chair rather than sit flat on the floor all night. However, as one of the most popular furniture pieces in the world, the sofa is subject to a constant flow of innovation, and the latest reclining recliners are now available.

Loulé 2-Piece Motion Sofa

This is an exquisite theater-style reclining sofa. It is made from dark brown leatherette that feels very natural and comfortable. The material has been well sewn together, ensuring that you sit tight and securely as you enjoy a movie. 

The frame is made from pine which is quite a reliable and rot-free material. This type of wood is not likely to rust due to damp conditions easily. It can recline on the seats that reside at the ends of the chair where the armrest is. 

They are very natural-looking pieces of furniture which means that they fit into any living room carefully. For added comfort, the manufacturers have included a cupholder on each of the armrests. This will allow you to enjoy a hot beverage while you enjoy your movie safely. 

They have styled this in a retro fashion, which means you can bring a bit of the old school back. It is an easy reclining feature that involves merely pulling a lever. At that point, you will then be able to choose between two motions. There is the motion that takes you right up to 180 degrees, and there is another where your feet go up to just about 90 degrees. This versatility might be necessary to some people depending on where their TV has been set up.

  • Rot-proof wood.
