2020 In-Depth Review
Are you looking to find out more about the collins Sectional Sofa? You may be wondering What are the Collin’s features and benefits and Is it right for me?
In this review, find out why the Collins sectional made the cut in our five best selling sectionals lists in Ottawa and Kingston. It’s our second best selling stationary sectional behind the Meyer Sectional and La-Z-Boy’s number one best selling stationary group!
Jenna Leblanc is a design consultant at La-Z-Boy Home Furnishing and Décor in Kanata. During her last two years at La-Z-Boy she’s helped hundreds of clients find their perfect seat.
She says everyone seems to really love the Collins sectional! It’s suitable for a comfy cozy family room, or maybe even an open concept living room. It has clean, contemporary lines that appeal to many.
This review will cover:
1. Unique Features
The Collins stationary sectional features deep seats, has simple lines, overscaled rolled arms and welt trim. Modules with arms include one 20″ accent pillow (corner modules include two 20″ pillows).

- Built with tailor-made decking under the seat cushion as a raised print. This non-skid feature helps to keep the seat cushion from sliding forward.

2. Collins Sectional Dimensions
One size does not fit all when it comes to comfort. Based on its dimensions, the Collins sectional is a good fit for most average to taller height individuals. It has a really deep seat so short legs will dangle but Jenna says, “if you like to curl up, it’s perfect.” Sectionals with a less deep seat may be preferable to some, such as the Bexley* or the Kennedy sectional.

C) Accent Chair
The cost of the Collins sectional is in the mid-high range of the sectionals now available on the market. The quality of materials used in construction and customization options are the main reasons for the higher price bracket. To learn more about the costs of sectional sofas in our Ottawa Kingston market read our article on how much a sectional costs.
The starting price is $2999.99, with a variety of fabric choices, including iClean fabric colours. From there, the cost increases depending on different fabric or leather chosen, number of seats and other options selected.
5. Options and Upgrades
Take some time to investigate your options so that your new sectional doesn’t just suit your home; it suits your way of living. The Collins furniture set has various customization options available.
Upholstery / Cover Options
Your choice of fabric or leather upholstery is a pivotal decision when selecting a sofa for your home. The Collins has over 900 hundred cover options so you can custom-create a look that’s uniquely yours. Choose from the latest colours, patterns and textures.
Jenna says that you can upgrade to a variety of fabrics at a lower cost from our selection of value fabric options including iClean™ select fabric. For an extra $2-300 per seat, you can cover it in this stain resistant fabric that offers a barrier of protection that repels spills before they turn into stains. Choose from our selection of leather fabrics that provide the best value in leathers out of all our sectionals.
A subset of covers is available in “conserve” fabric. Soft, durable, and sustainable “conserve” fabric is made out of recycled water bottles. We use as many as 110 recycled water bottles to create a sectional with this eco-friendly material.
As with conventional furniture fabrics, conserve covers are wear-tested for safety, quality and durability. So, they stay comfortable and beautiful for years after delivery. They come in a wide range of colours and patterns to complement your room.
Raise your comfort level by upgrading to ComfortCore® GEL seat cushions for your Collins sofa. This cushion has seven layers of comfort technology that includes gel-infused memory foam. It provides exceptional support as it conforms to your body.
The Collins Sectional comes with a standard wood finish.
Contrasting Welt Trim
Welt trim provides a tailored look to cushions and pillows but takes on an entirely new dimension in a contrasting colour. An unexpected touch, this decorative detail adds instant personality and highlights the sculptural lines of any silhouette. The Collins has over 50 different colour and pattern choices for trim starting at $119.
Looking for that perfect accent piece? The Collins comes with matching cushions. But if you are going for a bolder look, you can opt to get them in a contrasting cover that will set your furniture apart. Also, you can choose to add either a cord or fringe pillow edge treatment.
Add down fill feathers and upgrade your pillows to FeatherLite Comfort.
6. Customer Reviews
This sofa currently has a 5-star rating in North America. Find out what customers are saying in the following reviews.
A) Retirement Napping Professionals
“Since we retired 2 years ago, my husband and I have become full time competitive nappers.
We bought the Collins a few weeks ago in the gray color….its the most comfortable couch I’ve ever owned…weve never had a sectional but now there is ample room for both of us to nap lying down and still have plenty of space for our granddaughter to nap in between…Lazyboy furniture is well made and durable. My only problem is figuring out what to do with the lazyboy couch we had prior to this…which only napped 1…being retired, napping is the most important criteria for judging a couch.
I give it a huge thumbs up…we moved into this house 3 weeks ago hence the Spartan room…this couch was the first purchase for the house and it arrived within days of purchase.
I gave it 4 stars for style as I prefer cleaner lines and a more minimalist look, but comfort wins hands down.[sic]” Catherine L
B) Love the Collins!!
