Recliner Styles & Room Planning

December 16th, 2008 in Recliner Styles /

The Lazy Boy Recliner has been a staple in North American homes since they were first introduced in the 1920’s. With nearly 100 different styles and a comfort that is hard to match with stationary furniture it isn’t hard to see why.

Lazy Boy Recliners can be upholstered in either fabric or leather. You can even provide Lazy Boy with your own material and they will upholster your recliner to fit your room’s design scheme. If you want to use your own material it must be approved by Lazy Boy and this option is only available for recliners and not for sofas, love seats or modular groupings. The material must be 54 inches wide and have a plain pattern and cannot be quilted, striped or require any pattern matching.

Lazy Boy Recliner styles range from traditional to modern. There is the art deco inspired Carlyle Recliner with its exposed maple veneer arms, the Chippendale styled Ferguson Recliner and the classic Queen Anne styled Jennings Recliner to name just a few. You are sure to find a recliner style that matches the other stationary furniture in your room.

Lazy Boy even provides you with a Room Planner on their website where you can enter the dimensions of your room and try out various furniture layouts. They include generic furniture pieces as well as their full line of recliners, sofas, chairs, ottomans, sectionals and love seats. It is a great way to see which pieces of furniture will fit best into your room before you buy. You can save your plans for future reference and print them. You will find Lazy Boy’s Room Planner useful even if you are not planning on purchasing Lazy Boy furniture.

Some of the dealers can offer you the ScreenTest or Kaleidoscope Systems which will let you view the different combinations of frame styles and fabrics that Lazy Boy produces or that can be special ordered for you. This will give a quick impression of the options available but remember it is still best to view the actual fabric swatches to make sure the colors match your design scheme.

One interesting option that Lazy Boy provides for special order on certain recliner models is to move the handle to the left side of the chair. This can be useful if you are left handed or simply want the handle on the other side of your recliner because of the furniture placement in your room.
