Reclining chairs are cozy AF, no doubt about it. But stylish? Not always the case. Rather than go for the standard oversized, over-stuffed recliner reminiscent of the '90s, a sleek-but-still comfortable leather recliner can become your favorite nap spot without detracting from the rest of your home's design.
is the perfect example—it's smaller and has cleaner lines than the puffy chairs you tend to think of when you hear the word "recliner," but it's still plenty padded and cushy enough to nap on. But if the $1,399 price point is out of your budget, don't fret—Walmart has a similar leather recliner for only $175.
Sedgwick Leather Recliner, $1,399, West Elm
Comparing the two chairs, it's pretty hard to see much of a difference between them at all. The Walmart recliner has shorter, thicker legs than West Elm's option, but otherwise, they're incredibly similar. Structurally, they're close as well—both have wooden frames, and the West Elm recliner is only a few inches bigger than Walmart's option, coming in at just under 2 inches wider, 3 inches deeper, and about 3 inches taller. And if you're worried that the lower price point on Walmart's recliner is associated with the comfort and quality, a reviewer noted that "the leather is soft," and "the chair is very comfortable."
West Elm's Sedgwick chair comes in 12 different colors (including black) and leather options, while only comes in two options: black, and orange. If you're looking for a wider color range at a lower price point, you might need to do some searching, but if you're looking for a sleek, basic black, (or a fun pop of color with that orange!) you're covered.

The point is, no matter which chair you choose, you really can't go wrong. All that's left to do is pick your favorite and kick back and relax in your new favorite Netflix-bingeing spot.
