La-Z-Boy: Kingston, Ontario

When you hear the word “Recliner” what image comes to mind? 

Maybe something like this…..

Or how about something like 


No? Well….. SURPRISE!

They may not look like “recliners” but they are both what we at La-Z-Boy like to call:

 Secret Recliners!

For 90 years, La-Z-Boy has defined comfort, now we’re setting the bar for style. With modern silhouettes and designer details, we offer recliners in looks you’d never expect. Add a personal touch with fabrics, finishes and trim.

Only genuine La-Z-Boy recliners put your comfort first with quality that’s built to last. No wonder we’re the industry standard for comfort and style.

Recliners are moving from the basement to the living room with designer recliners.

Traditional style meets La-Z-Boy comfort with our High Leg Loungers. Perhaps in one of our luscious leathers with the added glamour of nailhead trim in your living room. 

Maybe you would like to be able to put your feet up at the end of the day but you just don’t have space for an ottoman? Choosing one of La-Z-Boy’s High Leg Loungers lets you push back and relax. When you are not reclining our footrest folds discreetly away, this is what makes it a secret recliner.

4. High/Low leg recliners 

Last but certainly not least, high and low leg recliners are “the real” secret recliners! You would never know they were recliners. Also, known by our customers as push-back recliners or high leg loungers. These beauties were designed to complement stationary sofas and sectionals in your living room.  People love these recliners because they look like a stylish accent chair, and secretly, they recline!

La-Z-Boy has taken the bulk out of these chairs but left in the comfort. Great for small spaces where you don’t have room for an ottoman. 

People love the high & low leg recliners because the chair is up off the floor, which creates space underneath. It can make a small room look neater and more spacious, and it makes for easier vacuuming and dusting.

We carry dozens of different styles and sizes of high and low leg recliners, they all have several things in common:

  • These recliners have wooden legs that come in a standard brown finish that you can customize to match the other wood furniture in your room.
  • You can add memory foam to the seat for extra comfort.
  • This chameleon chair has clean lines; there’s no handle to recline; you just use your body weight to push back or press the button on the power chairs.

Barbara Patton, a design consultant in our Kingston location, says, “people are amazed to see we have this kind of chair!” She recommends ordering a kidney-shaped pillow for behind the neck. It adds comfort when you’re reclined and style when you’re not.

For the petite person, check out the Sonoma high leg recliner.
