Type of Recliners
The ultimate goal of a recliner chair is to experience comfort and relaxation in your home. But, there are some practical considerations to make when choosing the right recliner chair for you.
Whether you are looking for a stylish recliner to fit seamlessly with a room’s decor or looking for a recliner to rock your newborn baby to sleep, La-Z-Boy offers a wide variety of recliner options to meet all of comfort preferences and lifestyles.

With just the touch a few buttons, you can recline and relax with ease and eventually return to an effortless standing position.
High Leg Recliner
The High Leg Recliner offers a twist on our traditional recliner by resembling the appearance of a traditional chair. This option can add a classic touch to any room. While appearing sturdy and stylish, this chair can also recline back with ease allowing you to kick your feet up and relax.
Similar to the High Leg Recliner, our duo recliners also embody style and structure yet recline with unexpected comfort.
The Rocker Recliner is perfect for those who wish to not only recline but also rock back and forth. While experiencing total body comfort and lumbar support, the Rocker Recliner offers a gentle rocking motion while resting in the reclined position.
The Wall Recliner is the perfect way to achieve comfort in a small or confined space. Don’t let a small living space hold you back from experiencing the relaxation of the reclined position. The Wall Recliner allows you to kick back, even when the chair is close to a wall.
If you prefer to relax in a position with ease of motion, the Swivel Recliner allows you to recline back with a twist. You don’t have to worry about getting too stuck in that relaxing reclined position because in the Swivel Recliner you can glide in a smooth motion and remain apart of all the action going on around you.
Nursery Gliders & Recliners
Now if you are a new mother, the Nursery Glider or Recliner is for you. There is no better way to lay back and fall asleep with a newborn than in the comfortable rocking recliner and glider chair. You can remain in that laid back position while gently soothing the baby with the rocking motion.
Technical features aside, we understand that the recliner you choose should fit seamlessly with your current decor and home design. With this, we offer recliners that are inspired by four main style categories: family, favorites, comfortably casual, classics revisited, and modern retreat.
Our Family Favourites collection is designed to provide comfortable and versatile recliner chairs. This style appeals to the look of natural elements, bringing the outdoors inside. With this, Family Favourite recliners are typically offered in leather or in neutral colour pallets.
The Comfortably Casual collection is designed by combining the richness of the past with the clean styles of the present. Our comfortably casual recliners embody both modern and traditional style elements in a combination of textures, rich colours, and strong patterns.
A recliner from the Classics Revisited collection typically gives off a warm and cozy appeal encompassing the past and the present. When it comes to our Classics Revisited collection, the design is in the details and it’s all about accents. A Classics Revisited recliner is often sturdy yet stylish.
Our Modern Retreat collection emphasizes clean lines and accessory-free spaces. Recliners designed for this line are offered in a variety of textures but appeal to an uncluttered and functional space. These recliners are designed with simplicity.

Take a look at this video for an explanation of recliner costs …
This price range is subject to change based on any customizations or upgrades you make to your chosen recliner chair … but we will get into more detail about that later in the article.
For now, let’s give you a better idea of how much our La-Z-Boy recliners cost by outlining some examples of recliners in a few different price categories. There are key differences in the materials used as well as the labour that goes into making these different models, which ultimately determine the differences in cost.
The Vail Recliner
Manual Vail Recliner: approximately $700
Power Vail Recliner: approximately $1,200
The Vail Recliner is a great example of a La-Z-Boy recliner that falls into the low price range category. This recliner is great for anyone that is seeking high-quality comfort on a budget. The Vail Recliner is built petite and you can really sink back into its plush back and padded arms.
This model falls into the least expensive price category because it is a relatively simple chair to upholster and there is not a lot of careful sewing required. With this being a popular model, the fabric used to upholster the Vail Recliner is bought a thousand yards at a time, ultimately lowering the cost.
The Finley Recliner
Manual Finley Recliner: approximately $1,000
Power Finley Recliner in Leather: approximately $3,000
Power Finley Recliner in Custom Leather: approximately $4,500
The Finley Recliner is a high-quality, contemporary recliner that falls into the mid-price range at La-Z-Boy. This recliner’s modern lines, sleek track arms, and tall foam back gives the chair a unique and structured look. The Finley chair is great for letting your body rest in a continuous zone of comfort.
The Finley model falls within the mid-range price category because it requires more tailoring to the arms and back. This model is also upholstered with mid-range fabric and leather, and coupled with colours to keep the cost lower.
The Neal Recliner
Manual Neal Recliner: approximately $1,900
Power Neal Recliner: approximately $2,999
Power Neal Recliner with upgrades & customizations: approximately $5,000
The Neal Recliner falls into our high-end price category at La-Z-Boy. This recliner offers oversized comfort without the overstuffed look. This recliner is easily customizable to fit all body types and allows any user to recline into a wide range of relaxing positions. The Power Neal Recliner also has a built-in USB port to conveniently charge your phone or tablet.
The Neal Recliner is considered high-end because this model involves a lot more sewing detail and takes significantly longer to upholster. Additionally, this model is built with extra heavy-duty springs and a standard firm seat option. This model is often upholstered with our Harmony leather which is a domestic leather, dyed, and manufactured in the United States. The domestic leather adds to the cost compared to imported leather from Mexico or China.
