The La-Z-Boy brand, by all accounts, happened haphazardly. What began as a company that produced wood deck chairs has now turned into one of the world’s renowned furniture manufacturers, whose products are still made in America. The La-Z-Boy name came about as a suggestion by an employee in 1929 after the first recliner was upholstered.
It wasn’t until 1952 that La-Z-Boy first introduced the built-in footrest as we see it today. However, since then, the recliner has undergone substantial upgrades. La-Z-Boy solved the problem many experienced having the recliner up against the wall—there are now recliners available that move away from the wall when in recline.
Today, La-Z-Boy recliners come in styles that look more like stationary chairs. On top of that, La-Z-Boy recliners come in power-operated selections, like the Luke Duo reclining sofa. With the touch of a button, you can recline and even charge your phone via the built-in USB port.
La-Z-Boy recliners have come a long way, and there are endless options that your family can enjoy for years.
