The Pinnacle Recliner – An in-depth Review

In this review, find out why the Pinnacle Recliner is the best selling recliner in Ottawa and Kingston.

Peter Crepin is the manager at La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings & Decor on Hunt club road in Nepean. During his many years working for La-Z-Boy Ottawa Kingston, he and his design consultants have helped fit hundreds of customers to their perfect recliner

Peter says the Pinnacle is perfect for those who like to rest and relax. It will fit almost any adult, whether you’re 5.4’ or 6.2’, and offers so much comfort.  He even has the Pinnacle recliner at home, “It’s my favourite chair!”

Features unique to the pinnacle recliner:

Size and comfort are the main reason for its popularity; it’s comfortable without overpowering the room. It has a rolled arm and continuous leg support. The Pinnacle was one of the very first chairs constructed with no gap in between the chair and the leg rest.


Dimensions: Pinnacle Recliner


The Pinnacle has a relatively small scale while still being able to accommodate people in a broad range of sizes. Thirty-three inches across from outside arm to outside arm with a tall back 41 inches.


Body depth: 38.5” , Height: 41”, Width: 33”

Seat depth: 21.5 , Height; 18.5, width: 19”

Different chair styles in the Pinnacle:

1. The Rocker Recliner

Reclines up and down using a hand wand; it has a three-position footrest and ratchet system to recline back. You can and add a swivel base to move left and right and up and down.

2. The Wall away

It also has the three positions but no ratchet system so it won’t go as far back. The advantage of the wall away is that the chair can be much closer to the wall, about 8” as opposed to one foot. The disadvantage of the wall away is that it won’t recline as far back as the rocker recliner.  The wall away is available in manual or power.

3. The Pinnacle Glider

Moves back and forth. It comes with a swivel base and a one position footrest. (up or down) You can swivel and glide. Very popular for new parents looking for a chair to feed and rock their newborns. (this option isn’t available with power)

4. Pinnacle Power recliner

Rather than pulling the lever up and down, the power chair can move you to multiple positions. Press the button to move the leg rest up and press another, so the headrest goes back. The Pinnacle power recliner is our 2nd best selling power recliner.

5. The Pinnacle lift chair

It goes up and down and will help someone with mobility issues out of the chair. Available in power only.


  • In the last three months at La-Z-Boy Ottawa Kingston, power recliners with headrest and lumbar now have a new control panel with easy to use toggles. Its features include a home button, two memory settings, and a USB charging port. You can also upgrade to a wireless remote. Also, if you lose it, don’t worry, you can press a button on the side of the chair, and the remote will beep.

Also available in a Sofa and Loveseat. It comes with or without power and headrest and lumbar support with controls on the side.

How much does it cost?

The cost of a manual rocker recliner starts in the mid level range of recliners. See how much a recliner costs.

Power recliners will cost several hundred dollars more than traditional manual recliners. This is primarily due to the motor and mechanisms included in the construction.  

Each rocking recliner style with headrest and lumbar is priced independently.  They range from $2,000 to $3000 and upwards depending on included options.

Your choice of fabric or leather upholstery is a crucial decision and can significantly affect the price of your recliner.  With over 900 hundred cover options, you can custom-create a look that’s uniquely yours.

Is the pinnacle rocker recliner right for me?

Some people don’t like the traditional “Lazy Boy” style with the large puffy look. They may be looking for a more contemporary look. That’s why it’s essential to try the chair before you purchase so you can find your perfect seat. Most of the time, comfort wins out over style; if the style is critical, you can choose a more modern style.

What some clients are saying about the Pinnacle recliner:

This recliner currently has a five-star rating in North America:

Star - Review

“We have had two Pinnacle wall-always in genuine leather for five years. Sit in them every day and they are still perfect. Bought this latest one in the rocker style in fabric. My wife says it is the most comfortable chair she has ever sat in. That is high praise “ Anthony C

Star - Review

I just came home from the hospital with a broken back, six broken ribs, a bruised lung, and broken collarbone. I sent my mother out to buy a recliner for my convalescence and she ordered this one. It’s amazing—incredibly comfortable but also able to stand me on my feet until my core muscles heal. It gives massages at several different speeds/styles and has a heat function. The remote control also allows independent parts to operate for maximum comfort…..back, leg rest, etc. This recliner is well worth every penny, especially to a person with as many broken bones as I have. It’s been a Godsend! Denu220

Star Review

“Had it about two months, so far well made and it does what it’s supposed to. Kinda slow-moving, but I knew that when I bought it.” Pavel N
