Recliners, Swivel + Glider Chairs

Your living room is perhaps the area of the home you spend the most time in. Whether you’re watching television or movies, playing games or simply relaxing after a long day, you want a high level of comfort in the room where you gather often. Beyond sofas and love seats, there are quite a few chair styles that are luxurious to the touch, comfortable to sit in and durable enough to last for many years of enjoyment. Choose from a selection of recliners, swivel and glider chairs available from west elm that are sure to upgrade your living space, while providing you the comfort you deserve.


A recliner offers you the ability to put your feet up and relax at the conclusion of a long day at home or at the office. Choose from a variety of mid-century, contemporary styles that are sure to complement your existing decor and complete your living room ensemble. Recliners are made from high-quality materials, with a solid construction and either leather or fabric seating of your choosing. Add a recliner next to your sofa, pair it with a side or coffee table or add it in the corner for a reading spot.


Similar to a recliner, a glider also offers you luxurious seating comfort. Many of the available gliders are available in a wealth of different fabrics and colors, allowing you to customize your living space and seating arrangements exactly how you want them to look. Bright reds, greens, yellows and blues are available for most gliders, with fabrics ranging from tweed to velvet. Sure to be one of the more comfortable spots in your home, gliders also work well in a nursery or bedroom, allowing you to sit with your child for a goodnight story, or to settle down with a book of your own in a quiet corner of your home.


Swivel chairs are true conversation pieces, but that doesn’t mean they lack in comfort or durability. Perfect when paired with an end table or modern or contemporary coffee table, swivel chairs offer an eclectic, stylish look not only in your living room, but in your breakfast nook, home office, bedroom and more. Choose from fabric or leather styles, with durable metal legs, for a chair that not only provides comfort, but expands your seating capacity. Additionally, pair swivel chairs and gliders with matching ottomans for extra leg room for added comfort during down time.
