Catnapper is known as the pioneer and producer of America’s “First Recliner” with a metal mechanism. Since 1886, they’ve been dedicated to bringing comfort and style into your home. Although Catnapper has been around forever, how well do you really know them? Catnapper is a brand under Jackson Furniture, which is a family-owned furniture manufacturer that got its start here in Tennessee over. The name came from the idea of wanting to create the perfect recliner for ‟taking a quick cat nap on Sunday afternoon in front of the TV with family“. While they do offer a wide array of great furniture for your home, the star of the show today is the Catnapper Searcy Rocker Recliner.
