    Hi everybody!
    Can anyone tell me the difference between an armchair and an easy chair? Of course, if there is any?

    My dictionary says that they are the one and the same. I have heard some people refer to an easy chair specifically as one that reclines, (a recliner).

    Puse easy chair en Google y pedí imágenes. Aparecieron todo tipo de sillas, hasta las de plástico que no son tan resistentes y a veces uno termina en el suelo.

    An armchair can be any kind of chair, as long as it has arm rests.

    An easy chair or a lazy boy generally is cushioned and reclines.
