It has got to be super tough to design a recliner that doesn't actually look like a recliner. Jeffrey Bernett somehow did it. The award-winning designer used his experience from designing ergonomic in-flight seating for Northwest Airlines to come up with the stellar Flight Recliner ($2000-$2700). The chair offers all of the comfort of a regular recliner, but quickly folds upright to go back to its sleek look. It's available in leather or wool with a great stainless steel sleigh base.
