Recommendations for comfortable chairs/recliners for family room.

Does anyone have a recommendation for 2 comfortable chairs, maybe recliners for a family room. The room is a two story , with a floor to ceiling brick fireplace. My husband has a bad back and would like a recliner, but most recliners look like the old fashioned lazy boys. This is the sofa and love seat that I currently have, I will be reupholstering them, and moving the love seat to another room. The 2 chairs would replace the love seat.

Here you go. Their company is simply the best. They have more modern styles..and you can find ones that are not so wide and huge like lazy boys....http://www.bradington-young.com/leather-recliner-chairs.asp

Thanks CMR, would you have a recommendation to what fabric and color to redo my sofa and love seat in? They will eventually be going to Florida to retire with us, but not for another 5 yrs or so:)

JF fabrics are decent quality for the price. Find here: http://www.fabricsandhome.com/index.php?page=shop.browse&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=54 I'd order samples and see what you like. Upholsterers like that brand as well because its usually under $50 a yard. Then go into a place that carries Bradington Young after you have your chenille choices...and look at the leathers and get pricing on what combinations you like together. Remember to get a CFA of each so you make sure that before you buy both products that both dye lots -both on the sofa fabric-and leather on the recliner match the original.

So you would recover in a chenille, any color selection? Trying to update the look while staying neutral.

Would two leather recliners look too heavy in this room? Or use an upholstered recliner? They will replace the love seat.

What would modernize that sofa would be one seat instead of 3. But your cushions should be thicker than these...By an inch-1.5" inches so it looks a little more bulk like the rest of the sofa .

Thanks, that is one of the reasons that we are reupholstering the sofa, I hate the cushions! I am not sure how much can be changed during reupholstering. As far as the chairs are concerned, do you think that I would be safer with the leather ones?
