Function and Fashion to Make Life Better

Abbey is one of 3 new Xtra Tall Power Reclining Sofa groups to be introduced at the Fall Furniture Market by Barcalounger with higher backs and longer leg extension. The idea? To make lounging at home more comfortable for tall people.

The average height of Americans has increased. Americans are turning 65 at the highest rate in history. More Americans than ever are working full or part time out of home offices. And, increasingly Americans don’t want to give up style to have comfort.

What do all these trends have in common? They are emerging needs, demographics, lifestyles and tastes that BarcaLounger is addressing with features-and-benefits rich new introductions at the upcoming international Fall High Point Market. At the Furniture Market, retailers from around the nation and world come to see introductions from major brands like BarcaLounger, products that will be seen in stores several months after their debut in High Point, N.C.

The Marcus power reclining group set for introduction by Barcalounger has an Xtra Tall back and longer leg extension to comfortably accommodate people from 6’2″ to 6’8″ and even taller.

“The new product categories that we have developed address growing consumer needs, lifestyles and tastes,” said Larry Smith, president. For example, the Xtra Tall sofa groups and  reclining chairs are designed with 45-inch-high backs and footrests that extend 3 inches longer. The goal is to comfortably accommodate people as tall as 6’8″ or 6’9.”

Another need Barcalounger is addressing is the work-from-home lifestyle. The WorkSpace Seating collection offers comfortable and supportive home office chairs.

Functional and fashionable, the new WorkSpace Seating line in traditional, transitional and modern styling, is on castors and offers adjustable seat height and adjustable tilt and tension mechanisms.

Another new line, the Lux Recline & Lift, is a collection of reclining and assistant chairs in upscale styling with refined scale, cover selection, tailoring and detail.

The Leslie Lux Recline & Lift Chair has a tailored 4-button-tufted back, nailhead trim and a stylish navy leather cover..

Over the next three years, the “graying of America” will happen at the fastest rate in history. “These chairs will enable consumers to transition to assistant chairs with the fashion and comfort they are accustomed to,” said Smith. “They are great-looking recliners with the hidden bonus of  an assistant lift feature if needed.”

While the comfort and relaxation offered by reclining chairs has never been more in demand, no one wants to give up style to have the ultimate in comfort. That’s why Barcalounger is introducing the Accents Collection, an offering of decorative and smaller-scaled 3-way push-through-the-arm recliners designed to complement gracious living and family room settings.

The Huntington, left, and Bayshore reclining chairs offer upscale fabrics, leathers, colors, scale and tailoring you would expect in a living room accent chair. The reclining feature is just a bonus.

Stylish silhouettes and covers are also to be found on Barcalounger’s new pedestal chairs and ottomans to be debut at the High Point Market.

The ultra-modern Montaco, left, is in an on-trend creamy white leather, and the Zach is in a maroon leather and transitional style.

Barcalounger is planning to greatly expand its selection of power reclining sofa and modular groups, with 16 introductions, including the Connelly, below.

At home in modern settings, the new Connelly sofa has a tiered back, sloped and padded arms and a tapered wedge foot in a unitized frame.

Making your life easier and better. That’s our mission at Barcalounger, and with these new functional and fashionable introductions set for the Fall High Point Furniture Market, we hope to provide more ways than ever for you to enjoy life’s moments at home.
