Started in 1927 by cousins, Edward M. Knaubusch and Edwin J. Shoemaker, a company destined for success was born. Hinging on an innovative recliner, La-Z-Boy’s original designs hit the furniture world by storm fueling inspiration and demand. Very quickly, their ingenuity and quest for comfortable living transformed how a generation viewed and furnished their homes.
Knaubusch and Shoemaker are long gone, but the legacy they built in the La-Z-Boy brand continues to thrive and is passed down to future owners like the Miller brothers. Tim and Gerald were not new to the furniture business when they became a member of the La-Z-Boy family with their own franchise. From having a previous family run furniture store, Miller’s Fine Furniture, they knew the makings of a great company and La-Z-Boy’s reputation and work ethic made the decision an easy one.
Becoming La-Z-Boy owners was more than just a business decision for Tim and Gerald. It was more about belonging and contributing to a company that is continually transforming how people live by introducing new modern lines like the Urban Attitudes collection and supporting Ronald McDonald houses.
Tim and Gerald understand, just as Knaubusch and Shoemaker did, that furniture is more than just a purchase, more than something that merely occupies space in our homes. It permeates our lives, helps bring family and friends together in comfort and function.
Come in and visit the Miller’s and their extended family of helpful staff and see how La-Z-Boy is still changing to fit the needs of the consumer. You’ll be glad you did.
