A few weeks ago I brought you along to La-Z-Boy for my sectional shopping trip. I mentioned how up until that point, my stereotypical image of any La-Z-Boy product was an overstuffed rocker recliner that is usually “Daddy’s chair”.
La-Z-Boy is on a mission to break this stereotypical image most of us have conjured up.
La-Z-Boy provides comfort and style in a wide range and selection of great-looking furniture beyond its legendary recliners. It has been letting consumers know this through their effective "Live life comfortably" campaign featuring actress Brooke Shields. Their products range from the company’s world-famous recliners, reclining sofas and love seats, sleep sofas, modular furniture and leather upholstery, to stationary sofas, love seats and chairs.
Their new products being released this summer have me swooning! This first photo has me dreaming of a new front living room. I adore the accent pillows and the striped chairs are a fabulous accent to the solid love seats! Notice the double use of the square ottomans that can be used as side coffee tables or flip the tops over for a foot rest.
Some of the new Motion & Reclining Sofas coming this summer include:
With its generous proportions and soft lines, the “Hayes” provides the coziness consumers expect from a La-Z- Boy reclining sofa while remaining a terrific value. Offered as a complete reclining group that is also available with the option of PowerRecline, “Hayes” is sure to be a great addition to family rooms across the country.
The beautiful reclining “Greyson” sofa is a perfect option for a consumer seeking good looks without compromising comfort. “Greyson” is available with the option of PowerRecline and also comes in a complete set with a separate reclining chair. This is a sofa for a La-Z-Boy shopper with an eye for style.
Based on the popularity of the “Coleman” reclining chair, a matching reclining group is being introduced. A sofa, loveseat as well as rocking loveseat with a console, will provide versatility. “Coleman” is available with the option of PowerReclineXR on the rocking loveseat and reclining chair. This petite style will enable many consumers to have ultimate comfort without taking up a lot of space.
Here is another room I could totally bring into my house as shown. I would never normally say “Hey, let’s paint the walls yellow!”, but this works on so many levels! The textured fabric adds dimension to the room but yet a traditional solid color that would work in a variety of settings including a more traditional setting. Again they used the striped chairs for accents which go perfectly.
I am more of a Stationary Sofa kind of girl. I am loving the new choices coming out this summer:
Clean lines and petite scale are desirable and practical in today’s homes, and the “Eden” offers both, along with La-Z-Boy’s comfort and quality assurance. Interactive and versatile, this sofa set can be transformed anytime from a sofa/chaise piece and matching occasional chair into a classic sofa silhouette and single chaise with the simple change of a seat cushion. Fresh in her look and styling, this sofa group will be a welcome “freshen up” in any home environment.
The “Kiera” offers the versatility of a sectional and the functionality for which La-Z-Boy is known. Maintaining clean lines and simple detailing, “Kiera” is comprised of two joinable pieces and an ottoman that allow for endless creative options. Each piece is finished all the way around with a corner that doubles as a left and/or right arm piece, along with an armless piece that can also be used as an accent chair – this style can be configured to suit any room, any time.
Here is nice mix of leather and fabric, something I had never thought of doing before. The toile (very feminine) in a chaise against the leather (masculine) arm chair… a perfect match for a his and hers reading nook. I wish my bedroom were large enough for these pieces!
Using chairs as an accent can be fun and functional. Some of the new chairs include:
A “twist” on an elegant and chic design, the “Caroline” is available as both a chair and an ottoman. Offered in any of 4 finish options and a multitude of fabric choices, the beautifully turned wood detail on this piece makes it a benchmark of trend and design. The “Caroline” is a piece that can go from classic to contemporary depending on the fabric covering.
Fully upholstered with spectacular turned wooden legs, the “Arianna” is both sophisticated and versatile enough to fit in any room environment. Available in any of 4 finish options and a multitude of fabric choices, the beautiful nail head detail and updated wing give a modern feeling to this classic design.
Offering elegance and traditional flair, “Gabriel’s” detailed wood craftsmanship and understated attitude make it a perfect accent for any environment. Available in 4 finishes and several fabric choices, it may be hard to resist ordering two.
A transitional wing back such as the “Arden” will update any room in the house. Fully upholstered with flared wood feet, this piece can turn an ordinary spot into an exceptional one. It comes complete with an ottoman for added comfort and personality.
The classic traditional exposed wood “Elisabeth” brings an understated yet stylish element for the perfect finishing touch. Offered in 4 finishes and a multitude of fabrics, “Elisabeth” is a perfect solution for a consumer looking for a comfortable and refined seating choice.
I love how easy it is with La-Z-Boy pieces to combine traditional pieces with more contemporary ones. Here is a nice intermingling of leather and fabric, solids and plaids. It’s not ultra masculine and with a few subtle feminine touches on the walls and side tables it would make a great living area. The plushness of the sofa is inviting… I would love to curl up in the corner and read a book, wouldn’t you?
La-Z-Boy has been producing some of the world’s most comfortable furniture for 85 years…. it looks like they are only getting better with age! I can’t wait to receive and share my experience with my very first La-Z-Boy piece in a few weeks!
