Home Makeover | Our New La-Z-Boy Living Room

Last summer my family visited our local La-Z-Boy Showroom to pick out a sectional. Our living room is quite large, but we just didn’t have enough seating for our family of six to sit comfortably.

We actually did receive our sectional a few months later. That particular sectional had a problem with the chaise not connecting to the other pieces properly leaving the back of the piece crooked. La-Z-Boy was unable to repair the issue, so they replaced it. It was a small inconvenience to have to wait again, but as you will soon see… the wait was worth it.

Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of the living room before we removed our old sofa and recliners, but I found this one I took for another review. As you can see from the photo above we only had seating for five. As our children grow older they tend to want to sprawl out making it near impossible for everyone to be happy. We basically have four adult bodies and two children trying to occupy that space on family movie nights.

I knew our choice of the Daphne sectional was the right one for us. It was so easy to customize the shape, size and even the fabric so that the final result is a piece of furniture that is tailor made just for you and your space. As I mentioned in my last post, my husband mapped out our room and the pieces we thought would fit. We finalized our selections with the help of the sales person and began our wait as our sectional was created. I was excited to see the final result!

With the old furniture out of the room the space felt enormous. I was hoping we had planned this appropriately so that our end result was what we had been dreaming of.

As they began to unload the truck my anxiousness turned to excitement. I was so relieved that our fabric choice looked like what were hoping it would. It’s so difficult to imagine a piece of furniture with just a tiny swatch to go off of and printing it off the computer left all of the textured qualities off.

The delivery men made quick work of unloading and installing. They showed us how all of the pieces attach to each other with a hook and latch type system so they don’t wiggle apart and leave gaps. When the crew was finished they asked if there was anything else they could do for me. I quickly told them the vacuum was in the upstairs closet in which they replied “If that is what you need done, I’d be glad to.”! I about died laughing, but let them off the hook and thanked them instead.

Our room was finally complete! We ended up with (from left to right) a left arm sitting sofa, a corner unit, two armless middle pieces, a right arm chaise and over in the corner an ottoman. Even the delivery men mentioned it was on of the biggest units they’ve delivered but agreed it filled and made use of the space nicely.

La-z-boy also offers a full line of accessories to finish your living room look. We finished ours off with a round coffee table and a expandable sofa table. We were beyond pleased with the quality, look and functionality of both.

Having a sectional with a large family has been amazing. There is little to no fighting even when the two bigger kids sprawl out on the chaise and corner piece. If we pull the coffee table out a bit we can expand the lounging area with the ottoman making everyone happy with their feet up.

Did I mention that the ottoman is multi-functional? Not only can you put your feet up on it, but the top is hinged and opens up to a nice compartment that we now fill with the blankets that my family used to leave laying all over the couch each night.

The Daphne sectional is plush with just enough support to not be uncomfortable. I like that the back cushions are not attached. Between young kids that love to climb and cats that have decided we purchased them the largest pet bed on earth I need the ability to bring the cushions to another room to spot clean them. The upholstery is a nice mid-weight quality material with a touch of texture. Although we did not treat it with Guardsman fabric protection the few accidental stains that have happened cleaned up easily. I think I can safely say that this piece will serve us well for many, many years to come.

It looks great! My sister’s living room furniture is over 14 years old and she’s been browsing sales ads for sectionals for weeks. The Daphne sectional would definitely fit her living room arrangement. Thanks for sharing the pics!

Oh my gosh, that’s fabulous! I love it, for real! It doesn’t overwhelm your space and it looks comfortable. I love the long chaise. I could spend an afternoon with a book there. =) I can’t wait to get a new sofa set because mine is done!

OMGosh that is so beautiful! I need a new set so bad! Mine has been through hell and back with all the kids in and out of my daycare. I actually have a Daphne Chair and a Half coming and I hope it’s a beautiful as yours! It’s good to know that the sectional hooks together. My old sectional didn’t and there was always gaps.

I would love to have a sectional like this. Our family could really use the room. The only furniture we have owned from la-z-boy are recliners and we have been very pleased with them. I like the color you chose. It is so awesome that the la-z-boy furniture is so easy to customize. Thank you for the great review!

You really did well! Looks awesome. I really love the color that you picked and how it fits right in with everything. I see the king of the house approves of your choice as well. :)

What a nice couch! I love the fabric. It looks comfy and functional. By the way, our cat Jackson, looks identical to yours!

That really looks beautiful and cozy. I also love your wall colors. I’ve been seriously considering La-z-boy furniture for our living room when we finally find the right house. Though they are a little higher in price, the quality of their products are worth it.

That looks so comfy! It’s nice that you have such a large room that it doesn’t overwhelm the space. I have looked into getting a sectional, but I think my living room is too small and would end up being all couch if I went ahead with it.

I have been seriously considering getting a sectional- I think the rooms look neater and it gives you lots of sitting areas.

I have never been disappointed with La-Z-Boy. We have an entertainment sofa set and a comfortable recliner set.

The new couch really makes the room look so elegant. I like the color, and all the room that you get for company when they come over. The cat really likes the new couch!

We have a Lazyboy sectional too…ours is about 10 years old though! I love that the pillow backs are removable on yours. Ours are attached and some of the stitching has come loose from the kids and animals climbing on them.
