Why should I choose a fabric recliner sofa?

Many people choose a fabric recliner sofa simply based on preference - whether they love the look of a classic weave fabric or want to cuddle up on cosy chenille, fabric recliners offer something different to leather recliner sofas. Fabric recliners can also be a more affordable and low-maintenance option than their leather counterparts.

How to choose the right fabric recliner sofa

It’s all about personal preference! Are you looking for cosy chenille, classic weave or elegant velvet? Would you like a power fabric recliner or manual fabric recliner? Are extra features like storage, cup holders and reading lights important to you? With so many fabrics, styles and shapes of fabric recliners to choose from at DFS, we’re sure we’ll have something that’s just your thing. Still feeling overwhelmed? Don’t worry, our friendly sofa experts are here to help - simply pop into your local DFS store or get in touch with us online for extra help and advice when choosing the right fabric recliner sofa for you.

Which recliner sofa is best, leather or fabric?

Both fabric and leather recliner sofas have their own unique benefits. Fabric recliners can be more affordable, come in a wider range of colours and fabrics, and can often be lower maintenance or more hard wearing. On the flip side, there’s nothing quite like the feel or look of leather - whether that’s real, faux or a combination of the two - and leather recliners can be found in both modern and traditional styles to suit any decor. Whether you choose a fabric or leather recliner at DFS, you can be sure they’ll be of the same fantastic quality you expect.

Do reclining sofas last long?

As long as the furniture is properly maintained, fabric recliner sofas have a similar lifespan to normal sofas of up to 15 years in most households. Of course, the more a fabric recliner is used, the faster it will start to show general wear and tear. To help your recliner sofa last as long as possible, take a look at our in-depth motion furniture care guide.

Is it better to get a power or manual recliner?

Power recliner sofas are an excellent option if you love nothing better at the end of a long day than kicking back - and since they already require electricity, open up the doors for all kinds of extra features, from heated seats and reading lights to USB charging. However, if you’re on a budget, or would simply prefer an option that doesn’t use any electricity, manual fabric recliner sofas are a great option too, offering the same great kick-back functionality.
