Whitley is a reclining power sofa in transitional styling that requires no wall clearance for a full recline. The one-piece back on this sofa provides the most up-to-date styling available, which allows you to free-float this sofa within a room, while maintaining a luxurious presence. A battery pack is available for purchase for those of you that do not want a cord showing. (If you will be using this sofa against a wall, then the traditional cord and outlet combination will provide the most consistent power.) A power-activated articulating headrest is another option that you can add to prop up your head for tv viewing or reading when in the full recline position. Any of our 125 leather options, 50 fabric options (including our new offering of Revolution Performance fabrics), 19 wood finishes can be ordered on this sofa, because it is entirely made here in NC!
