La-Z-Boy Boy Recliners

Although "lazy boy" is a term that is often used to describe all recliners, many people don't realize that it's actually a brand name (the situation is very similar to that of Kleenex). La-Z-Boy is the correct spelling of the name of one of the most successful furniture manufacturers in the world.

Pros: If you're looking to buy a La-Z-Boy recliner, be prepared to set aside a good chunk of time. There are literally hundreds of different models to choose from. The most impressive model is probably the La-Z-Boy Oasis. The Oasis is the ultimate recliner for guys. Under one armrest is a cooling unit big enough to hold a six-pack. The other armrest features a telephone you can use to order pizza. What more could you ask for when you want to kick back and watch the big game? If you're not a "beer and pizza" kind of guy, fear not. La-Z-Boy also makes more traditional recliners.

Cons: La-Z-Boy may be one of the biggest names in the world when it comes to recliners and sofas, but that doesn't mean that every chair the company makes is perfect. Some models feature fabric that wears thin after a few years of use. This isn't usually a major problem, but it can shorten the lifespan of your chair. Another issue several customers have complained about is that they feel the recliners shipped to them were not as comfortable as the ones they sampled on the showroom floor.

Overall: While the color and shape of La-Z-Boy recliners may change from model to model, there's one thing doesn't change: comfort. La-Z-Boy recliners are among the most relaxing chairs in the world. It's a cliché, but they really are hard to get out of once you sit down.
