Blue is a great go-with-anything colour that suits living rooms large and small, and a recliner sofa is the very definition of relaxation. So kick back, put your feet up and browse the Furniture Village sofa and armchair collection where you’ll find a huge choice of leather and fabric blue recliner sofas in all kinds of styles and to suit all budgets.
Why should I choose a blue recliner sofa?
Want to optimise your relaxation? We highly recommend you choose a blue recliner sofa. As well as being able to stretch out and curl up as you would with any sofa, a recliner sofa has built in functionality that makes it even easier to lie back and put your feet up – in precisely the perfect position for you.
Whether you land on an electric recliner sofa or a manual recliner sofa, you can choose the angle of recline that’s most comfortable for TV watching, conversing with friends or, of course, getting forty winks.
Recliner sofas typically elevate your feet as they recline, and many have adjustable headrests too.
Blue is one of those stylish yet adaptable modern neutrals, and a blue recliner sofa tends to coordinate well with most living room decors. Blue recliner sofas also look fantastic with pops of primary colours from rugs and cushions.
But if a blue recliner sofa isn’t for you, never fear. We can help you find the sofa that’s perfect for you and your home. If you’re looking for the ultimate in comfort with extra lumbar support, take a look at our Parker Knoll range. This classic British brand creates sofas that put the emphasis on support. Although many Parker Knoll sofas do have built-in recliners, they’re all so well-constructed that even the non-reclining sofa options offer excellent support for your back making it even easier to relax in comfort.
If you’re looking for a sofa that offers a blend of comfort and style and your living space is large, consider a corner sofa. Generally seating four, five or even more, a corner sofa is the ideal sofa choice for movie nights and family gatherings. The corner arrangement makes them particularly sociable and conversation-friendly.
Smaller living space? Be sure to check out our selection of 2-seater sofas and even 3-seater sofas. And even if space dictates that your sofa is on the smaller side, you won’t have to sacrifice style. We have a great range of contemporary-style modern sofas, traditional Chesterfield sofas and even versatile modular sofas – a good choice if your living space is an unusual shape or size, or if your family is growing.
Choosing the right blue recliner sofa
If you’re set on a blue recliner sofa, you’ll be pleased to hear that we have many options to choose from. To narrow the field, it makes sense to start by deciding whether you want a manual or an electric recliner sofa.
Electric recliner sofas – also known as power recliner sofas – tend to allow for more subtle variations in reclining position, so you can adjust the reclining aspect of your blue recliner sofa to suit you perfectly. They are often (but not always) more expensive than manual recliner sofas, and they do need to be positioned close to a power source. This may seem like an obvious requirement, but it’s definitely worth considering exactly where you think you might put your blue recliner sofa to make sure that there’s a power source within easy reach.
Manual recliner sofas are the original recliner sofa. With fewer moving parts and no built-in motor, they are often a more affordable option – but can be every bit as comfortable as a power recliner sofa. They’re easy to operate, too. You simply sit down and push against the sofa back. As it reclines the footrest lifts up creating the perfect relaxed position.
Whatever type of blue recliner sofa you choose, you’ll likely get the option of deciding where you want your recliner or recliners. In a 2-seater recliner sofa and a 3-seater recliner sofa, this could be either in the right-hand seat or the left-hand seat or even both. The more recliner mechanisms you choose, the more your sofa might cost – but it might be a small price to pay to avoid family fights!

Choosing the right material for your blue recliner sofa
You’ve chosen the type of recliner, you’ve chosen the size of the recliner sofa, now it’s time to consider the all-important upholstery. Blue recliner sofas are available in both fabric and leather upholstery and there are distinct advantages to each. Of course, it might just come down to personal preference – you may simply like the look of fabric more than leather or vice versa – but let’s take a moment to consider each in a little more detail.
Fabric recliner sofas are available in a wide variety of fabrics textures including cotton, chenille and velvet, all of which come in many different shades of blue. Your chosen fabric type might be dictated by how much wear and tear you think your blue recliner sofa might receive. Linen, for example, is a beautiful fabric but tends to crease and should be treated with a great deal of care. Woven fabrics, on the other hand, are much more durable and better suited to families with children. A leather recliner sofa is also a good option for busy households as leather can withstand plenty of everyday use and actually tends to look better as it weathers over time.
The finishing touches
You’ve found your perfect blue recliner sofa. Congratulations! Stylish and comfortable, we’re sure that it’s going to be the focal point of your living room for years to come.
Blue is one of those sofa colours that is both on trend and timeless. In a modern living room, a blue recliner sofa feels cool and contemporary but if your living room style is more traditional, blue offers an entirely appropriate classic feel.
Of course, the overall ambience also depends on how you accessorise your living room. In a more traditional space, pair your blue recliner sofa with oak furniture – a coffee table, a console table or even a sideboard (they’re not just for dining rooms, you know). In a more modern space, place your blue recliner sofa next to a glass coffee table or a high-gloss display cabinet. Love the mid-century modern vibe? Blue recliner sofas fit perfectly into this aesthetic. Complete the look with Ercol living room furniture and add some abstract wall art.
Of course, the best accessory for your blue recliner sofa might actually be a recliner armchair – and this means that everybody can experience true reclining relaxation. Opt for a blue recliner armchair in a coordinating or contrasting fabric.
