Update the style and functionality of your living room or your favorite reading nook with this contemporary recliner. Sleek modern construction and gracefully bent wood arms give this charcoal recliner an elegant, understated appeal, while the foam-padded cushions provide comfort. The neutral, sophisticated dark gray color and Merlot finish on the arms make ensure this eye-catching piece eye-catching doesn't overwhelm other decor.

This Riverside recliner cleverly disguises two comfortable reclining positions that are set with the simplicity of a push-back reclining mechanism. This sleek, curvilinear recliner's design is enhanced with a glossy, merlot wood finish on the arms and legs, and a fabric that coordinates with many different palettes. This recliner is an attractive, modern alternative to the traditional, overstuffed recliners of yesteryear.

    Great recliner - just as comfy as the ugly overstuffed recliners yet way more stylish! I could fall asleep in it!

  • Pretty

    Nice recliner. Arms wobble a little too much and one of the legs was missing its plastic part that helps it slide and keeps it from scratching the floor. Other than that it is a great chair

  • Love the chair but it's not grey

    It looks grey on the picture and it's named charcoal so it would seem like it should be grey. It's just not. It's more of a brown/green color. It's fine for the room I'm using it in but I can't give it five stars. It is comfortable to sit in. I'm only 5'4" so can't say how it would be for a taller person but I do like sitting in it.

  • Better Than Expected

    I bought this chair becaue we haven't been happy with the recliners available locally for a similar cost. This chair has so far, exceeded our expectations. The seat is high off the floor and the back is very tall which allows for excellent comfort for 6' tall person. The cushion is very supportive and firm on the seat and there's plenty of cushion on the back of the chair to provide lumbar support and the perfect pillow for your upper back and shoulders. The fabric is soft and seems durable. I definitely recommend Scotchguarding it. The chair didn't smell when we rec'd it so we didn't need to air it out. Assembly was easy and the arms weren't wobbly from shipping. The arms are substantially wider than I thought they would be (around 6 inches or more across?). The stain is a deeper red but not quite mahoghany. The chair has a hefty weight to it (close to 90 lbs.) and it doesn't feel like you would flip over when you fully recline. I have been able to lay almost completely flat in this chair and it's wonderful. This chair (in gray and wood stain) is vesatile and modern enough to use in a masculine or feminine interior - just chane the paint. We have a gold living room with color block rug in gray, black, red and gold and it's a perfect fit. You could go modern, arts & crafts, mission style - it would work in all. If you're not sure, try it. You can return the product to Overstock with a return UPS tag. If I had more room I would buy another one. I give this chair a 100% so far, we'll just have to see how it wears.

  • Riverside Charcoal Recliner

    I have just started using this chair so I’m not sure how it will hold up. The chair is very comfortable; I wish the back was A little higher for reclining but that is not a big deal. I’m 6’ 200lbs and when I sit in this chair it is a perfect fit. My feet touch the floor just right and the lumbar support is FANTASTIC. The chair arrived in pristine condition they were very careful with the packing and it took more time to get it unpacked than it did to set it up, that’s a good thing. The color is even nicer in person it’s sort of a charcoal green it’s a very nice color and the wooden arms match my décor perfectly. This not a $750.00 Lane chair but for *** bucks you can’t go wrong. This is not one of those overstuffed monsters it does not eat up a whole lot of space and it's very attractive.......... I really like this chair!

  • Poor packaging

    The packaging for this chair is poorly designed and resulted in major damage at the rear of both arms. Overstock sent us another one, but it was packaged the same and damaged in the same way. The damage wasn't as bad as the first one, so we decided to just keep it. Other than that, though, I agree with the other reviewers regarding the comfort and style of the chair. We have it in a guest room along with the Aristo armoire that we also bought from Overstock, and it looks great. The arms of this recliner are not quite as dark as they appear in the picture... They are a little redder, more a dark cherry vs. the espresso of the Aristo furniture, but it looks fine.

  • riverside charcoal recliner

    Excellent product... I have seen this in the lane product line.. which was more expensive... this is definately worth the money, comfortable, stable, and looks elegant easy to assemble.. a few nicks upon arrival but nothing worth sending product back for replacement, furniture marker fixed the problem.

  • NOT grey -- more of a greyish brown

    Overall, I like the chair. I don't like the look of most recliners, but I wasn't willing to shell out a ton of money for the high-end "recliners in disguise." This is for a visiting family member with a bad back who has a difficult time sleeping in beds. It's comfortable, and I think it'll work just fine. It's not quite as streamlined as it looks online; if you look closely at the side view photo you can almost get an idea of how puffy the back cushion is. It's definitely got that traditional recliner pouf. But I suppose that's what makes it so comfortable, and it doesn't look terribly out of place -- the rest of the chair balances it out. The seat is more firm than the back, so I don't sink into it. I didn't notice there wasn't a handle until it got here; the seat reclines with body pressure. It's not difficult, but it does take a little oomph (5'6" average build woman -- might be a little harder for someone smaller or weaker). Once it reclines, it stays (no constantly fighting it trying to slide back up, so far anyway), and was easy to push back into an upright position with my legs. Unfortunately, when reclined, it exposes two screw holes on the top of each arm. I would have at least appreciated some caps to cover those up, although you'll never see them with someone sitting in the chair (and they are stained inside the hole, so they're not as glaringly obvious as they would be otherwise). One reviewer said the arms were huge, 6" wide -- that's definitely an exaggeration. The arms are 3 1/2" wide, and a nice espresso finish. Like other reviewers, I wound up with a couple small dings on the arms (nothing that wouldn't have ended up happening in my house within the first year anyway), but I don't know how they could have protected them more -- the arms were wrapped in foam sheeting, then cardboard, then styrofoam. The color isn't charcoal grey, though -- there's definitely some brown in that grey. If your interior is strict blacks, it might stand out (then again, so would the espresso finish on the arms), but otherwise I think it's a color that will blend nicely with a variety of decors. It actually works better with mine, since the hint of brown warms it up a tad. There is an odor, so I'm hoping it off-gasses quickly. It smells like furniture stain, though, not nearly as offensive as some of the put-it-together-yourself stuff I've bought in the past. Assembly was easy; the chair ships in two pieces. The seat, base and arms are already put together; that's the heavy part. The back is very lightweight and has two metal channels inside it. Those channels slip over two metal prongs on the seat base; push down, and voila, your seat is assembled. Oh, and there's a velcro strap keeping the footrest in for shipping; if you don't read the assembly instructions, you might be wondering why it doesn't recline. All in all, I think it's a good deal for the price. One star off for the exposed screw holes at top of the armrests.

    • Hello Herbgardener, customer reviews indicate the back of this recliner is fully finished in the same upholstery. Thanks for shopping with us! L.B.

  • I did not receive any assembly instructions or manual or anything with my chair. The back slid in, but it's wobbly, so I don't think I did it right.

    • Hello sennalyn, I am sorry to hear that you're struggling with assembly. You will be contacted by Customer Care for further assistance. Thank you for shopping with us.

  • How easy is assembly? How many parts/steps?

    • Hello seastar1013, this recliner is so comfortable! Many customers have said how easy this item is to assemble. The chair ships in two pieces. The seat, base, and arms are already put together; that's the heavy part. The back is very lightweight and has two metal channels inside it. Those channels slip over two metal prongs on the seat base; push down, and voila, your seat is assembled. There is also a strap keeping the footrest in for shipping; if you don't read the assembly instructions, you might be wondering why it doesn't recline. I hope this information helps. Thank you for shopping with us.

    • Super easy to assemble. No damage to any of the wooden portions of the chair.

  • Is the texture of the fabric similar to a microfiber or velvet or more like canvas or linen?

    • Microfiber

    • It is a textured polyester,more like a canvas and seems quite durable. Whn you run your hand over the chair, you will detect a pile which gives some shading characteristics. Definitely not a sueded microfiber.
