Is there a favorite chair in your house? One preferred by pretty much every member of the family (even the pets)? If your home is graced with such a special piece of furniture, odds are good that it's a rocker recliner chair.

Let yourself experience the caressing embrace of a rocker recliner built by the premier name in fine furniture. Find a great selection of recliner rocking chairs to bring home by shopping Bassett Furniture's extensive online inventory.

Rocker Recliner vs Glider Recliner: What's the Difference?

The basic difference between a rocker recliner and a glider is in the motion of the seat. Reclining rocker chairs feature a back and forth motion that changes the angle of the back of the chair relative to the floor. While enjoying a rocker recliner, you'll feel more of an up and down movement. 

The glider's motion tends to be smoother, and has less vertical movement. The movement is contained to the same horizontal plane. 

Both types of recliners provide a great level of comfort and versatility. In fact, both are popular choices for nurseries. 

Perfect Place for a Swivel Rocker Recliner

Not only do rocker recliners move back and forth, they can also swivel from side to side. This adds another dimension of motion to an already multifaceted piece of furniture. 

When does that extra motion come in handy? Spin around for a head start to the kitchen. Or, keep yourself in multiple conversations as a host of a busy cocktail hour. Better yet, always have that perfect viewing angle for that blockbuster movie or big football game. 

Swivel rocker recliners are great in the living room, the media room or in any open concept layout. 

Rocking Recliners Are Great for Napping & Sleeping

There's a reason why the recliner rocker was your grandpa's favorite chair. It's great for taking naps. In fact, a recliner maybe preferable to sleeping in a bed in certain circumstances. 

A night in a reclining rocker can alleviate certain types of back pain and help with acid reflux. Recliners are also a popular choice for pregnant women who find sleep in a bed more difficult during later stages of pregnancy. 

History of the Recliner

Recliner chairs have come a long way. Historians hold that the story of the recliner can be traced all the way back to ancient Egypt and the fancy daybeds used by pharaohs, called "klines." The recliner took it's current, modern form in the 1850's, when the French came up with a reclining device that allowed a daybed to morph into multiple positions, including as a chair, bed, and chaise lounge. Napoleon III owned one of the very first recliner chairs.
