Yaser Aliman, another design consultant at La-Z-Boy Hunt Club, loves the look of the Edie. Given its structured frame, he says many clients think that the Edie Sectional is stationary at first glance.
Many clients are surprised and pleased by Edie’s unexpected ability to recline, he says.
Are you looking for shared seating that is both classy and comfortable? The Edie Sectional may be exactly what you are looking for.
Read on for a comprehensive review of the Edie Sectional to determine if it is for you!
The Edie duo® Sectional is known for its clean and casual design featuring padded outer arms, a padded back, decorative wood legs, and welt trim. 20-inch knife-edge accent pillows with welt trim further enhance the stylish appeal of the Edie.
Beyond the style, the Edie offers unexpected comfort with the power to recline at the touch of a button. Simply use the silver-toned-2-button outside mounted controllers to recline and raise the leg rests.
Speaking of comfort, the Edie is built with patented ComfortCore® cushions that provide just the right amount of support for a short or long sit. Racha says that the cushions on the Edie are medium firmness; they aren’t too stiff but still provide proper support.
Not only does the Edie enhance the style of a room and provide comfort, but it also offers convenience with built-in USB ports to charge your mobile devices. The Edie can be plugged into an AC unit or runs on an optional battery pack.
The Edie is customizable in a variety of fabrics, leathers, and finishes. Moreover, the shape and size of the Edie Sectional are versatile. You can play around with several possible configurations to have it fit seamlessly into your space.

Sectional Configuration Options
The configuration of your Edie Sectional is very important as it will determine the overall shape and size of your sectional. This will also impact how the sectional fits in your room and how it coordinates with your furniture arrangement.
The Edie has three starter configurations to choose from.
When customizing the configuration of your Edie Sectional, it is important to keep in mind that the Edie does not offer single seating on one side. The Edie can only be configured as a loveseat on either side of a corner seat.

Commonly used on more traditional pieces, nailhead trim is making a comeback in home design. To accentuate the lines of your Edie furniture, customize the nailhead trim.
- No nailhead trim
Transform the look of your Edie furniture by uniquely customizing the wood finish on the decorative legs.

The Edie Sectional comes with matching throw pillows. If you are going for a bolder look, consider selecting contrasting accent pillows to make your Edie Sectional pop.

Limited Lifetime Warranty
A sectional frame among the La-Z-Boy Premier Constructed furniture, the Edie is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty assuring the protection of your investment and overall satisfaction.
The Limited Lifetime Warranty covers the repair or replacement of the frame, spring system, and the mechanism, given that they are quality-crafted and built for long-lasting comfort.
While still built to last, other aspects of the product, such as fabrics, leather, and cushion, are prone to more destruction over time than parts of the frame. Although not covered for life, the La-Z-Boy Manufacturer’s Warranty still covers these parts for a given period of time, usually a few years.

Comfort, yet Classy.
This sectional is perfect! Super comfortable, easy to clean, and doesn’t lose it’s shape after awhile. We love that is reclines but we don’t have to waste space so it doesn’t hit the wall. This piece is so comfortable that we have family members looking into purchasing the same thing!
I literally love this sectional! It’s such a beautiful piece of furniture that is so modern and sleek but yet so versatile that fits nearly with any design. It is by far my favourite couch I have purchased and the fact that we had a designer that was able to come and help measure everything, all the way down to measuring the door to make sure it would fit inside our home was fantastic!
The comfy couch.
Very comfy couch! I like the firmness of the seat cushion. They don’t collapse or slide. Love the fabric upgrade, worth every penny! We chose the suede-look in gray so it will be dog and kid friendly.
Is the Edie Sectional Right for you?
It is no question that the Edie Sectional is a beautiful piece of furniture. But is it right for you?
Given the size of the Edie and finished padded back, Racha says this sectional is perfect for clients who are looking to fill an open space.
When it comes to style, the ideal client for the Edie Sectional is someone going for a more modern look. “Someone who likes the look of stationary but wants a leg rest feature would love the Edie,” says Racha.
While the Edie is great for kicking up your legs and tilts slightly when leg rest fully extended, it is not very conducive to leaning back. If you are looking for a plush sectional to place in the home theatre with seats to fully recline, the Edie may not be the right choice.
Instead, the Edie is ideal for a casual sitting room meant for reading or hosting gatherings.
Yasir also suggests that the Edie might not be the right choice for someone who requires neck and head support. Given that the back of the Edie is short and does not have a headrest, it does not provide as much neck and head support as other models.
Is the Edie Sectional what you are looking for? Why not start shopping today?
If you prefer to shop from the comfort of your own home, we also offer virtual design appointments. You’ll be able to view it up close and observe its functionality, but we do recommend a sit test to ensure it is the correct fit.
We look forward to meeting you and helping you customize your Edie Sectional exactly to your liking.
