Large recliner chair vs. large accent chair with an ottoman. Both have their pros and cons. Overall, recliners are more comfortable (as far as I’m concerned). Accent chairs with an ottoman, on the other hand, look better in a living room. I would restrict recliners to family rooms (including rec rooms, media rooms and the like) and stylish accent chairs such as club chairs with an ottoman to the living room.
Because I like BIG comfy chairs, I put together this list of large, comfy recliner chairs.
