Recliner sofa for your relax

Varying the seat position with a simple touch and giving in to comfort requires no effort at all with Doimo Salotti sofas.

Recliner sofas are a real luxury that everyone can afford! Varying the seat position with a simple touch and giving in to comfort requires no effort at all with Doimo Salotti sofas.

A combination of padded structure and technology, recliner sofas can diversify the inclination of the backrest and footrest. The electric reclining mechanism can include the headrest, backrest and footrest. Certain models also have headrests that can be manually adjusted separately from the rest of the sofa: value plus comfort.

The reclining mechanism imposes a position just off the ground, which makes it ideal for lower, more voluminous sofas.  Room for movement must be taken into account; the seat mechanism with combined reclined backrest and raised footrest can extend 60 cm beyond the sofa’s depth.  It is important to bear this clearance in mind and not place fixed objects that could impede opening in front of the sofa.

Can recliner sofas have a chaise extension?

Recliner sofas can also be sectional, with corner elements, extensions and chaise longue. However, the reclining mechanism can be used only on linear seats.  An example is the Charles model, a sectional sofa in different sizes, with the reclining mechanism only on the linear seating.  The combined movement of backrest and footrest is provided by an electrical mechanism activated through the control panel on the side of the armrest.  This model extends a maximum of 50cm beyond the sofa’s depth.

Can recliner sofas stand on legs?

Because the reclining mechanism occupies space and is relatively heavy it would be seen as an unattractive addition to the general aesthetics. The Evoque sofa by Doimo Salotti is a model with legs and reclining mechanism.

Here modern design goes hand in hand with the enduring comfort of an adjustable seat. Evoque is the most streamlined sofa integrated with a reclining motion.  The slim but robust H 13cm legs make room for the mechanism while streamlining the sofa’s silhouette. The refinement of this sofa is apparent in every detail, from the leather upholstery to the special line that unites the front with the two armrests.

Is recliner sofa upholstery removable?

The fabric upholstery of recliner sofas is fully removable, as on all models in the Doimo Salotti fabric sofa collection. Fabric upholstered sofas observe all the rules described for recliner sofas, with the added advantage of being able to remove and wash the upholstery when necessary.

Recliner sofas are not more voluminous in width than ordinary sofas; there are large sectional models but also smaller linear two-seaters.  The Marvin model measures 172cm and has two reclining seats; the Quasar model has two reclining seats and an overall measurement of 182cm. Weight is another practical factor as it makes recliner sofas harder to move than ordinary ones.

The reclining mechanism push buttons are placed on the outside or inside of the armrest.  In other words, always to hand!  In conclusion, please remember that reclining mechanisms are powered by electricity and must therefore be placed near a socket.  On demand, a lithium battery can be purchased separately for all models of sofas standing in the centre of a room. In the case of wired sockets, just one with a transformer is sufficient for each sofa, even if it has more than one reclining section; if a battery is used, one plug for each reclining section is needed, and the autonomy is 60 movements.
