A recliner sofa is a type of hybrid furniture that combines the comfort of a recliner with the practicality of a sofa. The two basic types of recliner sofas are manual and electronic. Both types of recliner sofas lock in place as a non-reclining traditional sofa. To unlock the reclining mechanism of the sofa, you either press on a button on an electronic model or pull a lever on a manual model.
