Guide Review - Rialto Reclining Sofa

If you’re looking for a reclining sofa, take a look at La-Z-Boy’s Rialto. It just might work for you even if you’re short on space, as it is one of the smallest reclining sofas available.

While it may have a very unassuming casual look, it does have some great features, such as an over all compact design to easily fit into small areas. Another outstanding feature for this sofa is that it is just as comfortable for a person who is a little over 5 feet tall, as it is for someone who is much taller than 6 feet. The features that make this possible are a shallow seat and a high back.

The back is designed to provide good lumbar support and someone with back problems would find it comfortable. The design also makes it possible for someone with bad knees to rise out of it without placing too much stress on them.

The back comes off completely for easy transportation. This feature also makes it easier to fit through narrow door openings and hallways.

If you are looking to build a seating group around it, you can choose from a matching reclining love seat, rocker recliners, and wall hugging chairs.
