Amanda Sabina. Recliners Chairs & Sofa. December 10th, 2017.
Taste Changes in Family and Living Rooms. Recliners of this era were typically heavy and overstuffed. When changes in decor style changes so did the chairs. At this point quite a few individuals decided not to have these types of recliners. By the 1970´ these comfy relics found their way to basements and garages. In fact this may have been the birth of the "Man Cave" concept widely known today. Changes in taste seemed to lean toward saving space.
You do not however have to make your family´s home look like great grandma´s house. Your living room need not look like every other living room in that photo album. It can be yours and comfortable just for you.
It was not a given that these chair would come with a foot rest. Multi position reclining chairs began to be seen in the late 1800´s. These chairs could be manually adjusted to recline in various ways. One notable instance in history of these reclining chairs is Napoleon III who is rumored to have had a padded armed cot style recliner.
Living without a sofa is not a traditional move. Traditions are fine and should be kept in many ways. If you have begun a tradition around Christmas then you are not being ask to stop the tradition. If you have photo albums showing a family tradition that has gone on in your family for years that is wonderful. Great memories are made from these things of the past.
