La-Z-Boy, pronounced as “Lazy Boy,” is a US-based company that manufactures home furniture. Their products include sleeper sofas, lift chairs, stationary chairs, sofas and their most prized possession — upholstered recliners.
In 1927, two cousins — Edwin M. Knabusch and Edwin J. Shoemaker— designed a wood-slat chair in their garage. Their aim was to simply make a chair that was “made for relaxing”. However, this was no ordinary chair!
To come up with a unique piece of furniture, they used orange crates and created a mock-up of a porch chair that had a reclining mechanism. To give it some pizzazz, they upholstered the chair and started marketing their innovation as the ultimate year-round chair.
People loved their idea but the cousins still had to pick a name for their invention. Instead of brainstorming ideas, they hosted a contest and told the participants that whoever came up with the name would be the winner. This is how their reclining wood-slate chair was named La-Z-Boy. You can learn more about their commitment to the environment and people by visiting its About page or by contacting La-Z-Boy’s customer support services.

We are very disapponited.with our furniture called the Trouper. We have had many issues with the Loveseat. Three motors! The motor smells like burning rubber, however the smell has resided now. The right side back has been replaced as it was discoloring. It squeaks like a hundred year olf chair. Not fixed yet. The material is all bunched up on the sofa on the left side. It is now made out of partical board. CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!!!! And did I mention the set is only 9 months new.
I would have to say this is the worst quality sofa and loveseat we have ever had. I will NEVER EVER recommend Lazy Boy to anyone. I would rate all of the above one star and that is been generous.
