When you think of La-Z-Boy, you likely think of the iconic recliner chair and our big, comfy sofas!
While we do take pride in our quality-crafted and comfortable upholstery selection, we understand that there is much more that goes into furnishing a comfortable home, beyond just chairs and sofas.
In fact, no living room is truly complete without a stylish coffee table. Could you imagine a home bar with no barstools? What about a home theatre with no entertainment unit?
Casegoods are essential to complete any room. This accent furniture that often provides storage are secondary pieces that will bring balance, layers and functionality to your space.
With this, many homeowners are surprised to learn that La-Z-Boy actually carries a vast selection of case good products. Hammary Home Furnishings is a portfolio company of the La-Z-Boy case good group, along with Kincaid and American Drew.
Hammary offers a variety of styles in living room tables, chairside tables, home office furniture, and home entertainment furnishings. Also, its unique Hidden Treasures® collection is an assortment of one-of-a-kind accent pieces inspired by incredible furniture designs from around the world.

With reference to the last section of this article, it is no secret that Hammary products can be quite an investment. With this, you want to ensure that your purchase is protected.
Luckily, Hammary products have coverage under warranty from authorized Hammary dealers, including La-Z-Boy, for factory-related defects that appear one year from the date of shipment to the factory.
This warranty assumes that the Hammary product is enduring normal household use. Further, the warranty does not cover any accidental damage or damage caused by misuse of the product.
You may consider purchasing La-Z-Boys’ furniture protection plan for extended coverage.
The protection plan covers accidental damage for 5 years. This includes accidental food & beverage stain marks, heat rings, lifting, cracking, or peeling of solid wood, veneer, or laminate. Click here for more detail.
How to Care for Hammary Products
Aside from warranty and protection plans, there are additional ways to ensure the lasting life of your Hammary furniture.
First, rest assured in the fact that Hammary finishes are naturally resistant to minor everyday hazards and accidents. However, precautions are necessary to maintain the beauty of your wood furniture.
It is recommended that you dust the products with a soft clean cloth slightly moistened with water, then dry completely with another clean cloth. Always rub in the direction of the wood grain.
You should also keep cigarettes, hot dishes, moisture, and harsh solvents, such as nail polish or alcohol, away from Hammary furniture. Moreover, do not place beverages or food directly on the furniture. Be sure to use coasters and placemats for such.
When an accident does occur, remove the spill or smudge immediately.
Finally, to avoid fading or discolouration, Hammary furniture should not be placed near heat, outlets, windows, or in direct sunlight.
Dea Attar, the interior designer at La-Z-Boy Hunt Club, says that clients are always very happy with the wide range of options that Hammary offers.
“Clients also love the accent pieces from Hidden Treasures because they are always able to find something unique to add to their home decor,” says Dea.
Dea also mentions that Hammary nesting tables, in particular, are a hit with many La-Z-Boy clients. “They love the functionality of them and they are great for large and small spaces.”
Hammary products are such a hit that they are showcased in the CHEO Dream Home, furnished by La-Z-Boy.
Designed by Tanya Collins, the bohemian interior design of the 2020 dream home was brought to life by the use of Hammary case goods and Hidden Treasure accents.
Take a look at how Hammary case goods were seamlessly incorporated into the beautiful home, ultimately enhancing the interior decor.

While Hammary products have many redeeming qualities, clients have voiced complaints about the wood scratching easily. Because most Hammary products are not made from solid wood, but instead wood veneers, this can cause the surface to be slightly more susceptible to scratches.
Proper use of coasters and placemats is a productive way to help minimize such damage.
With this being said, La-Z-Boy technicians are able to repair these scratches by filling them, sanding, and re-finishing the surface.
