If you prefer the look of leather to dyed fabrics, you’ll want to check out the Yandel Power Lift Recliner from Ashley Furniture. It’s arguably the cushiest model on our list, and as long as you don’t sleep hot, it will send you off to dreamland quickly.
Leather is an acquired taste when it comes to couches or chairs you sleep on as plenty of folks have ended up “stuck” to the side of a chair on a humid night. If night sweats and humidity isn’t a concern, the Yandel should be high on your list due to its style and the amount of bang it provides for your buck. It’s a chair that will give you sticker shock in a good way as it looks far better than the price tag implies.
This is another oversized recliner measuring 35”W x 40”D x 42.5”H with a reclined footrest height of around 19.5”. Fully reclined, it measures 69” so it’s suitable for a wide range of body types unless you’re well beyond 6 feet tall – then you’ll have an issue. Additional measurements for this chair are below.

When it comes to the build quality and features, the company left no stone unturned. That means you’ll get dual motors for independent control over the back and footrest and a corner-blocked frame with a reinforced seat. It’s heavier than other power lift chairs at 140 pounds, so you need to consider placement (and the power outlet) carefully as it’s not something you can scoot around easily.
Ashley used a high-resiliency foam for the cushions which are fully attached and plump as you can see from the photos. It’s also a chair you won’t have to worry about in power outages considering it has a battery backup that utilizes two 9-volt batteries. It has a wired remote with four buttons which allow you to independently control both halves of the chair, but there are no other features to speak of aside from a roomy storage pouch on the side.
When fabric isn’t ideal, and real leather is not an option, the Ashley Furniture Yandel is one to consider. It looks good, is well-built and certainly won’t break the bank. Just make sure your doorways are at least 30” wide and keep track of the remote as there are no onboard controls. The chair comes with assembly instructions and the same limited lifetime warranty found on the Hogan.
