You can’t have a list of recliners without featuring La-Z-Boy, and the company cracked our list not once, but twice. Our favorite La-Z-Boy for sleeping is the Calvin Reclina-Rocker, a modern recliner with plenty of style and a couple of very cool features.

Looking for a stylish chair that doesn’t look like something you’d sleep on? This one looks like an ordinary recliner although it rocks gently when not kicked back. When you do decide to recline, you merely need to press a button on the right side to find the perfect angle. It’s slower than a lever but easier for people with wrist or arm issues along with those of us that are just lazy.

But that’s not the only thing powered…

If you like to listen to music while you sleep or nod off with your smartphone in hand, you’ll be thrilled with the USB port built into the outside of the Calvin. It’s next to the set of reclining buttons, so you won’t need a long cable, and you’ll never have to get up to charge your slate or phone. Another cool perk is the fact you can actually rock in this chair while reclined – a cool yet overlooked feature by many manufacturers.

USB ports aside, the La-Z-Boy Calvin is a solid chair from top to bottom. It can handle folks up to 300 pounds without any issue and provides full body support at any angle.  We aren’t privy to the exact materials used, but the pillowtop padded arms and split back are quite cushy, and these chairs are usually very easy to clean as well.

There is some assembly required with this chair, but the manual will walk you through it, and it’s no heavier than a normal recliner at around 80 pounds. It’s a reasonable size at 41” x 39.5” x 41” as well and comes with the company’s limited lifetime warranty. Just read the fine print to see exactly what’s covered.
