La-Z-Boy from Leekes


The La-Z-Boy Brand


The chairs were immediately successful, but the partners were keen to find a suitable name for their new concept and to do this they held a contest. Suggestions included Sit-n-Snooze, Slack-Back and Comfort Carrier but the cousins decided the best option was La-Z-Boy.

Over the subsequent decades, La-Z-Boy's range has grown to include different sizes and styles and the range is now believed to be the world's best-selling recliner. La-Z-Boy products are alll handmade exclusively to order with an unrivalled choice of leathers and fabrics and offer unbeatable levels of comfort and quality from their unique patented reclining technology.

La-Z-Boy History


The One and Only patented La-Z-Boy handle recline La-Z-Boy’s handle recline mechanism allows a unique relaxation experience. The backrest and footrest work totally independently to allow a personalised reclining position. A ratchet mechanism allows the user to comfortably slide the seat forward while the back rest moves in harmony with the body, meaning the lumbar region is fully supported at all times. The three-position handle can then be utilised to select a comfortable footrest angle.

A four-sided frame gives the La-Z-Boy handle products additional strength and durability, and adjustable wingnuts allow for the ideal tension to be reached for individual users. The handle itself is branded and is available in a wood or chrome finish.
