you could put a small rug just under the bottom or maybe a circle shape cut from some of that waffle weave rubbery looking stuff that is sold to go under rugs on hardwood
good luck!

Keep the recliner away from the hardwood flooring and the recliner won't get hurt!

Couldn't help myself! Besides, she said it, not me.

I have 2 recliners that the back feet sit on the wood floor.
This is something similar to what I use.

Try using 1" - 1 1/2" closed-cell foam pipe insulation. It should have a slit in the side that will fit over the metal that supports your chair. HD or Lowes has it. Costs about $6.00.
