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).

    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.
