As much as women dream of one day having a bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe that would make Sarah Jessica Parker jealous, grown men dream of a ‘man cave’ – A room where sports memorabilla and a pool table aren’t frowned upon, they’re admired. A room where an oversized flatscreen TV is a necessity, not a luxury. A room where a man can sink back into a comfy leather chair and put his feet up at the flick of a well-upholstered switch… that’s why every man cave worth it’s James Dean black and white framed poster prints no longer needs a great recliner, it needs a great incliner – a chair that inclines, NOT reclines. Confused? Let me explain… An incliner moves forward, not backwards, allowing the chair to be placed just centimeters from a wall, it’s a clever space saver that ensures that every precious inch of the man cave is put to good use.
Here are three incliners by Alpine Lounge that don’t just offer actions that are the best available on the market, but each incliner is even more comfortable than it looks…
Available in a variety of types of leather and colours, the Bastille is a classic high back design motion chair, which can be fitted with either a manual or a power/electric action for maximum relaxation. Similarly, the ‘best seller’ in the range, the Madison, is also available in a variety of leather and fabric types in a choice of colours to suit any room setting. Rounding out the top three is the classic, colonial style Napier incliner – “the backrest and footboard inclines while all four wooden feet are in contact with the floor, attractively shaped arm inserts with antique studs creates aesthetic appeal and the high backrest offers superb neck, back and lumber support.” We like the sound of that… already picturing hubby collapsing into his Napier with an ice cold beer in hand after a long week, just in time to catch a Super 15 rugby match on his man-sized TV.
