In fact this may have been the first recorded instance of a recliner. Edward Knabusch and Edwin Shoemaker, in 1928, came up with what they thought was a great new idea for a reclining chair. Their earliest models reclined whenever you leaned back in them. However, these gentlemen were not the only ones who know people liked to relax.
Wingback Chairs - These are chairs that have been around for centuries and are associated with luxury and royalty. For a visual, think of the chairs you´ve seen in movies that a kind and queen would sit in. This type of chair is generally upholstered in fabric but can be made in leather as well. It will have visible raised legs, round padded arms, well cushioned seats and of course the winged back. The wings are thought to help hide a person´s face while they are sitting should someone look in their direction from the side.
The recliner industry has grown into a billion dollar phenomenon and continues to grow with the changing needs of the populace. Recliners are also used in office and health care settings as well. Just take a look at the modern computer chair as an example of a simple recliner. Most office chair do recline today. This allows you to lean back to rest your back and shoulders while typing or talking on the phone.
