April 26, 2021

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


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


You may even relate to this phrase while shopping for furniture. A loveseat is too big, a chair is too small, but a chair & a half is JUST RIGHT!


A chair & 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 a chair & a half would be the perfect place for you to cuddle with your newborn in the nursery?


When shopping for chairs at La-Z-Boy, clients often ask us, “what are your top-selling chairs & a half?”


Furniture can be a significant investment and you want to ensure that the 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 chairs & a half offered at La-Z-Boy. 


Many of our clients have enjoyed these products and you might too!
