Bring home fabulous interior style with one of our black recliner sofas. Our carefully curated collection is perfect for anyone whose design taste tends toward the bold and contemporary, although black can be used quite effectively as a neutral. A black recliner sofa works just as well as popular neutrals like brown, grey and beige in anchoring a space without overwhelming it, and providing a backdrop around which you can create a cool and contemporary living room.
Why should I choose a black recliner sofa?
There are plenty of very good reasons to choose a black recliner sofa. Style, comfort, practicality – you name it, our black recliner sofas have it covered.
For starters, few sofas are more stylish than a black recliner sofa. Edgy and cool, dramatic and stylish, they make a great focal point in a contemporary living room.
Recliner sofas are also made for relaxation. While all sofas are built for comfort as well as style, we think recliner sofas often have the edge. After all, if you like to lie back and relax on your sofa, a recliner sofa just makes everything easier. Choose your perfect position, lean back and you’ll be instantly transported to the comfiest place in the world (or, at least, in your living room).
If a black recliner sofa isn't quite right for you and your family, know that you'll find plenty of other sofa options to choose from at Furniture Village. For larger living rooms and family rooms, browse our corner sofa collection and 4-seater sofa range. Growing family or awkwardly shaped living room?

Choosing the right black recliner sofa
Want to find the perfect black recliner sofa? Follow our checklist to identify the right one for you.
Start by deciding on the type of recliner mechanism. Electric recliner sofas – also known as power recliner sofas – are extremely popular these days and for good reason. Often featuring touch-sensitive controls, the electric mechanism means you can precisely tune the angle of recline to just the right position for you.
Electric recliner sofas often come with built-in USB ports, so handy for charging a phone or laptop while you relax. There are very few disadvantages to an electric recliner although obviously budget can be a factor. One thing to keep in mind is that electric recliners need to be positioned close to a power socket, so be sure to do a quick survey of your living space before making your decision.
Manual recliners are the original reclining sofa. Simple and straightforward, they rely on body weight to push back into reclining mode – a laid-back position with your feet up. For that reason, they’re generally not recommended for someone who is older or with limited strength, although they are often a more affordable option.
When you’ve decided on electric or manual recliners, have a think about how many reclining seats you want your black recliner sofa to have and where in the sofa you want your recliners to be positioned. The more recliners you request, the more comfort-responsive your sofa will be. If you’re looking for a relaxing sofa experience the whole family can enjoy, you may want to opt for double recliners or even triple recliners.

Choosing the right material for your black recliner sofa
For bold contemporary style, there’s nothing quite like a leather recliner sofa. Sleek and stylish, our leather black recliner sofas are offered in a range of styles. Leather is a great choice for a family sofa as it’s hardwearing, durable and doesn't show dust and dirt. Leather also tends to improve with age, becoming softer and more characterful.
If a leather sofa isn’t quite right for you, then take a look at our fabric recliner sofa collection. You’ll find plenty of choices if you’re looking for a black recliner sofa in fabric.
The finishing touches
Once you’ve identified your perfect black recliner sofa, it’s time to style the rest of your living room. You could continue the bold contemporary look and pair it with a modern glass coffee table, high-gloss side tables and abstract wall art.
A black recliner sofa also makes a fabulous centrepiece for a modern industrial-style living room, and it’s nicely different from the more traditional brown leather sofa. Pair it with rustic wood living room tables and furniture with metal accents, like a wood and metal side table. And a black recliner sofa can also be a great backdrop for pops of primary colour. Accent yours with yellow scatter cushions, a blue rug and simple modern furniture. Need more seating? Opt for a contrasting sofa or double your living room comfort with a reclining armchair.
Caring for your new sofa
These days, recliner sofas are reliably well-constructed and built to last. Nevertheless, as with any investment purchase, it’s always good to familiarise yourself with care and maintenance guidelines. Our upholstered furniture care guide is here to help with expert advice.
