To the best of our knowledge, George Washington Carver had nothing to do with the invention of the recliner, but with the way that he was always working, he would have enjoyed the Catnapper Cooper Bonded Leather Push Back Recliner – Peanut if he'd ever taken any time off. Anyone could love the sleek European styling of this versatile recliner. The tufted and bonded leather with contrast stitching makes a great impression when you see it, and the plump foam cushions on the seat, back, and arms will seal the deal as soon as you sit down. Just give a little push back, and you'll be able to enjoy reclining in style.About Jackson Furniture (Catnapper creators)Started in 1932, Jackson Furniture has grown to be one of the largest family-owned living room furniture manufacturers in the world.
