Everything we want from La-Z-Boy.

La-Z-Boy may be famous for the recliner—after all, they invented it—but the furniture manufacturer offers so much more than the go-to man cave seating. One look at the stylish rooms created by eight design bloggers during the La-Z-Boy Design Dash event shows that the brand is more sleek and versatile than most people imagine.
The designers used only La-Z-Boy furniture to outfit rooms in a variety of styles, ranging from midcentury to modern farmhouse to contemporary. No matter the aesthetic, La-Z-Boy fit the bill. I had the chance to experience all La-Z-Boy has to offer during Design Dash. Here, you’ll find some of my favorite pieces that are tapped into the trends of today, but still embrace the function and comfort that La-Z-Boy is known for.
When Traci of Beneath My Heart told me that this sofa was covered in the company’s stain resistant iClean fabric, I was completely shocked. Spill-proof fabric can have a cringeworthy texture, but this feels so luxurious. I never would have guessed that such a lush fabric was also so easy to clean.
I love the wood grain and neutral hardware on this entertainment console—it’s so chic and works with so many styles: Scandinavian, midcentury, or paired down minimalism. It’s also the perfect height and width to house a bar tray—like the Glitter Guide girls did in their space—work as a buffet, or just be a display place for objects you love.
These nesting tables, chosen by Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick, are perfect for flexible spaces. You can stack them as shown when entertaining or separate them entirely to rearrange your room. Move one next to a chaise when you have guests to gain a little more tabletop space.
I love the geometric lines of this book shelf used in Remodelaholic‘s room. The alternating high shelves are great for art books or vinyl collections, while the lower shelves really give tchotchkes and collections room to shine. There are endless options for styling your favorite items.
I love that this table does double duty as both an easy-to-clean landing pad for drinks and plants and as a display for your current rotation of coffee table books—you’ll never have to worry about guests leaving rings on your favorite design covers. Cassidy of Remodelaholic paired it with a leather Verve sofa, and it looked so chic.
This was definitely my favorite sofa of the bunch. The dusty navy color is very on trend right now—and one of my current go-to’s for decorating—plus the sofa is very versatile. It looked great in the more antique-driven living room that Marian of Miss Mustard Seed created, but would also look totally at home in my eclectic bohemian home.
I have a confession to make: I was deep into the Perennials during Design Dash (we received an advanced copy since we featured it in our summer issue), and every time I walked by this chaise in the room designed by Debbie of Refresh Restyle, I totally wished I could just grab a cup of coffee, curl up and read all day.
This cocktail table looks a little mammoth in photos, but it’s a perfect size to anchor a living room. It felt perfectly rooted in the Glitter Guide‘s space, where it really tied together the Verve sofa and Phoebe chaise. I can totally imagine tossing some floor pillows down and using it for more of a mellow movie night dinner party, too.
