New Zealand Family Living At Its Best
There are a lot of recliner chairs on the market in New Zealand, and it is easy to get excited about style and aesthetics when buying furniture. However, it makes sense to take your time when making purchasing decisions, as today's best recliners showcase a number of new and upgraded features for superior lounging.
It is a good idea to narrow down style preferences and must-have features early in your search. New Zealand, where indoor living is at its finest, and your new high quality furnishing should suit your region and your personality.
Find the perfect recliner to fit in your family living room
New Zealand homes have evolved during the past couple of decades. Large open plan living spaces are common, as are smaller inner-city apartments. Contemporary lounge chair styles include leather recliners, lift chairs, massage chairs, swivel recliners, Nordic style chairs, recliner armchairs, multi-seater modular lounges with chaise, and more.

Recliner chairs for the whole family to use
For more than 90 years, La-Z-Boy has symbolised quality family time. Our designs and innovations may have changed, but our commitment to creating strong, inviting and hard-wearing furnishings remains front and centre.
Many La-Z-Boy products are available in single, two-seat, and three-seat arrangements, some with built-in electric reclining, remote control, adjustable headrests, and adaptable footrests. Live it up your way in front of the home cinema, or recline fully for maximum horizontal relaxation.
Positioning the recliner in your space
Remember to measure the recliner space in your living room, as it is important to purchase the right size furnishing. A chair that is too small can be wasted space, while an enormous lounge suite may block airflow and people-flow around the room. If yours is a small room, consider a glideaway recliner that can fully recline even when positioned close to a wall or other object. We are the solutions experts at La-Z-Boy.
Consider different types of recliner chairs
Everyone has their favourite type of recliner, and you should make sure your personal needs come first. For example, a lift chair may be more suitable than a rocking chair for the elderly or infirm. However, you could go for the best of both worlds and buy a recliner lift chair for better all-round comfort and relaxation. Reclining chair options include:
- Manual recliners operated by a lever
- Electric recliners operated by push-button or remote control
- Rocking recliners
- Swivel recliners
- Glideaway recliners
- Recliner/Lift chairs
Benefits of adding a recliner chair to your family living
Recliners are a staple in modern homes, replacing traditional leather armchairs and rigid lounges. A fold-back chair adds another dimension to family living, and can even double as a sofa couch or sofa bed when friends stay over. In fact, entire New Zealand families are appreciating La-Z-Boy modular lounges and recliner armchairs for a completely new living room style. We move with the times at La-Z-Boy.
