Top 5 Best Selling La-Z-Boy Chair & a Halfs in Ottawa/Kingston

“Not too big … not too small … but just right!”


If you have ever read the old folktale Goldilocks and the Three Bears, then you must be familiar with this saying.


You may even relate to this phrase while shopping for furniture. While a living room may be too small, and a loveseat too big, a chair and a half may be what is just right for you. But can a chair that is “just right” also be considered large? Well, a chair and a half can also be considered an oversized armchair, so, in this instance, yes!


A chair and a half is often the perfect way to complete a coordinated furniture arrangement. Perhaps it is exactly what your cozy den is missing. Or maybe an oversized comfy chair would be the perfect place for you to cuddle with your newborn in the nursery?


When shopping for a chair and a half in Canada, there are many options to choose from. Clients from our furniture stores in Ottawa, often ask us about our selection.


Furniture can be a significant investment and you want to ensure that the La-Z-Boy chair and a half that you choose is a hit in your home. To get you started on your search for the perfect chair and a half, take a look at our top 5 best-selling offered at La-Z-Boy.

What is a Chair & a Half?


Before we take a look at our top-selling pieces at La-Z-Boy, you might not be 100% ceratin as to what a chair & a half is. Let’s fill you in!


A chair and a half is a spacious seating option that sits between a standard armchair and a loveseat. With approximately one and a half times the width of a regular chair, it offers ample room for one person to lounge comfortably or for cozy seating for two. 


Featuring a wider seat and broader armrests, it enhances comfort and usability, making it ideal for those who prefer extra space without committing to a full-sized sofa.


In living spaces, a chair and a half serves various functions. It can stand alone, providing a plush spot for reading, watching TV, or unwinding. Its larger size accommodates activities like reading or taking quick naps. Additionally, it complements existing furniture arrangements, offering extra seating without overwhelming the room's layout.


Chair and a half options come in diverse styles, materials, and upholstery choices. From modern designs with clean lines and leather upholstery to traditional styles with plush cushions and fabric upholstery, there's a chair and a half to match any decor. 


Overall, a chair and a half represents a versatile and inviting seating solution, striking the perfect balance between comfort, style, and functionality. Whether used alone or as part of a larger arrangement, its generous proportions and cozy design make it a popular choice for creating inviting and comfortable living spaces.
