La-Z-Boy LTD at the January Furniture Show: An Unmissable Experience
The January Furniture Show is pleased to feature La-Z-Boy LTD, a prime exhibitor at this
industry-defining event from 21st to 24th January.
Rich American Heritage
The brand traces its origins back to 1927 in Monroe, Michigan, where founder Edwin J.
Shoemaker, a chiropractor, designed the first reclining chair. Initially composed of orange crates
and canvas, the chair revolutionised comfort and posture, rapidly growing La-Z-Boy into one of
America's leading furniture manufacturers by the 1930s. Its American roots remain integral to its
identity today, with the company still manufacturing products in the United States and employing
over 9,000 people domestically. Over 90% of its materials are sourced from domestic suppliers,
underlining its commitment to American values of comfort, quality, and craftsmanship.
UK Operations and Product Line
As the UK subsidiary of this storied brand, La-Z-Boy LTD has been bringing its premium
products to British shores since 1978. Headquartered in Maidenhead, Berkshire, it operates
through a robust network of over 100 UK retailers. The company offers an extensive range of
reclining chairs, sofas, coffee tables, side tables, and TV stands, available in various styles from
traditional to contemporary.
Award-Winning Quality and Customer Service
La-Z-Boy LTD's commitment to excellence is validated by several awards, such as the Which?
Best Buy award for reclining chairs and Furniture Awards for Retailer of the Year and Best
Customer Service. This dedication extends to various customer-friendly policies, including free
delivery for orders above £500, a 10-year warranty on frames, and a 30-day satisfaction
