The search for the right recliner is a very personal journey. There are over 40 different styles of Authentic La-Z-Boy Recliners so it can feel like a daunting task! There are 4 important considerations when looking for “the right chair”: Fit, Fashion, Function & Finance. We hope this short guide helps you with the first 2 F’s by outlining our most popular options for people of different shapes and sizes.

You’ve probably began your search for “the right chair” already and have seen designs you like but they didn’t feel just right. Maybe it didn’t have a wide enough seat for you. Or the head rest or lumbar support positions weren’t positioned for your personal height. One great way to start is by grouping the chairs together by size and need.


Petite Recliners

The VAIL is the most popular chair for customers who are looking for a smaller frame that takes up less space in a room. This small chair is big in comfort as it has plush, biscuit-style back cushions for you to sink into.

Despite how the PINNACLE is the most popular recliner in Canada… The FORUM is the most popular recliner in Vancouver. Its slim profile is on-trend, with modern sloped arms and a tall, foam filled back that is ideal for taller people with smaller torsos.

Larger Sized Recliners

The TALLADEGA is the most popular style chair for someone who is above average height. It is engineered for tall people with a higher headrest, and can even be upgraded with a Tall Base option, which adds an extra 1.5 inches of overall height.

The REDWOOD is specifically designed for larger, heavier people. It leads our “Summit Series” in popularity because it comes standard with “Tall” custom options like the Tall Base, Elongated Comfort Selector Handle, Deep Chaise Seat, Higher-Density Foam, and an extra-long leg-rest.
