Recliners have long been a bastion of absolute recess — once you get into one, it’ll be a while before you get out.  Their purpose is frankly stated in the name itself — it’s a place to recline, to unwind, to relax.  Thankfully, overly-stuffed, unfortunately-upholstered versions of Dad’s favorite piece of furniture are methodically being strangled out by sleeker, chicer interpretations, like the ten pieces we’ve rounded up today.  From the artful curves of the Lobster chair by Verikon to the 90-degree angles and tweedy minimalism of Soho Concept’s simple offering, all ten beckon us to kick back, relax, and catch up on the latest episode of our favorite show — not to mention the end result of stretching out in such a languorous position for an extended period of time: a nap, of course.  So happy reclining, and sweet dreams.
