Roundup: Modern Recliner Chairs

Roundup: Modern Recliner Chairs

Our friend is moving in with his girlfriend, and his one request is to have a recliner chair in the apartment. We're trying to help her out by finding some good-looking modern recliners. She wants to avoid overstuffed velour or stained hand-me-downs. Here's what we came up with (more photos and links below):

Left to Right, Top to Bottom:
Tracy Recliner from Crate and Barrel, $899
Flight Recliner from Design Within Reach, $2,100
Harper Recliner from Room and Board, $1,100
Verona Recliner from Chiasso, $1,198
Le Corbusier LC4 from Design Within Reach, $2,585

Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman from Room and Board, $3,599
Dawson Recliner from Room and Board, $1,199
Bjork Reclining Chair from Spacify, $1,620
Tulip Chair and Ottoman from Mezzanine, price not listed
Chicago Recliner from Modern Office, $999
Danish Modern Recliner on ebay, $420
Liza Reclining Chair from All Modern, $1,399
Hipster Recliner from 2BMod, $745

Although a lot of these are above and beyond her budget, we wanted to add some of our favorite Mid-C loungers to the mix. We've also found that searching on ebay and vintage stores turns up some good finds from the heyday of recliner chairs.

Any suggestions for our friend?
