Are you looking for a reclining chair with style and comfort? 

The Addison Recliner has it all with a sophisticated look, exceptional comfort, and a small frame. In fact, many La-Z-Boy clients acknowledge the Addison as one of the Best La-Z-Boy Chairs for your Nursery

Racha Pharaon, a design consultant at La-Z-Boy Hunt Club, says what makes the Addison unique is that “it looks just like a stationary chair but has the ability to recline.” She adds, “the Addison has a very classic look.”

The Addison Recliner is a great choice but is it the right choice for you?

Read on for an in-depth review of the Addison Recliner, available as a wall, rocker or glider, with expert insight from design consultant Racha.

Unique Features of the Addison Recliner

With its tall back and stylish looks, the Addison Recliner brings together the best of both worlds. 

The Addison has the clean lines, rolled arms, and welt trim of a sophisticated stationary chair. But, this look is enhanced with the comfort of a recliner

Speaking of comfort, the Addison is built with high-grade foam seat cushions that maintain their comfort and appearance over time. A double-picked blown fiber fill improves the cushion loft and shape retention.

Addison FeaturesAddison Features

The Addison Recliner is available in a few different models:

Addison Wall Recliner - The wall recliner can recline mere inches from a wall. 

Addison Rocker Recliner - When you’re not reclining, it is a relaxing rocker recliner with a smooth, graceful motion.

Addison Glider Recliner - The glider recliner offers a gliding option. It provides all the same features as the rocker recliner but instead provides a smooth glide and swivel motion. 

In manual, use a convenient side-mounted handle to recline back and raise a 3-position locking legrest. In power, simply use the side-mounted 4-button control panel to recline and raise your feet independently for a wide range of relaxing positions. There’s even a built-in USB port to power your phone or tablet.

Please note that the Addison Glider Recliner is only available in manual, not available in power.

Size & Dimensions

The Addison Recliner is built on a small to medium scale, ideal for smaller spaces. While the Addison is petite, Racha reminds clients to consider how the width of the chair will fit in their space. It is crucial to measure your room in order to ensure that it will fit comfortably in your home.

Moreover, it is important to consider how the dimensions of the Addison Recliner will support your unique body type. Although the Addison has a tall back, it has a shallow seat. Generally speaking, the size of the Addison is recommended to those between the height of 5’4” to 5’9”. 

The best way to be sure that the Addison Recliner offers the comfort and support that you are looking for is to visit a La-Z-Boy showroom and try it out for yourself. A design consultant will help you perform a sit test to ensure the recliner fits, properly supporting your head, lumbar, and legs.

Options & Upgrades

At La-Z-Boy, all upholstery furniture is customizable, including the Addison Recliner. 

You have the ability to make the Addison uniquely yours with a variety of options and upgrades. 

Upholstery/Cover Options

First and foremost, the upholstery cover that you choose for your Addison Recliner greatly impacts its overall look and feel.

The Addison Recliner is offered in three select fabric collections: Mckittrick, Hobbs, and Becker, for a total of 15 colours. Amongst these three collections, there is a wide variety of colours and textures to choose from. 

The Addison is not offered in leather, but it is offered in select recycled leather options as well.

These select options are specifically chosen to complement the product’s unique look and particular frame. Further, the select fabrics offer the best value at starting prices. 

In addition to the select cover options, at La-Z-Boy, we have over 800 fabric options. Within this wide selection of upholstery, the Addison Recliner is also offered in the following premium-grade specialty fabrics.

Stain Resistant

Innovative iClean technology surrounds each fabric fibre, creating a barrier that repels spills before turning into stains.

Pet Friendly

Pet Friendly Fabric is tested and formulated to withstand the scratches and wear that a pet can cause, to ensure a durable and easily washable fabric. 


Antimicrobial properties surround each fibre to protect against mould, mildew, and odour-causing bacteria. 


Superior stain and fade-resistant properties make these fabrics easy to clean and incredibly durable.

Eco Friendly

Conserve Sustainable Fabrics are soft, durable, and made from recycled water bottles.

Seat Cushions

Raise the bar on comfort even higher by upgrading the seat cushions of your Addison Recliner.

Firmer seat options are available at an additional cost. For more information view our Motion Furniture Collection catalogue and our in-depth Review of La-Z-Boy’s Chair and Sofa Seat Cushions.

Please note that reclining furniture purchased prior to January 2021 had the option to upgrade to airform™️ cushions.  This cushion includes a two-inch layer of premium quality memory foam added on top of the standard foam base within the seat, chaise and leg rest of the unit.

Handle Options (Manual)

In manual, the Addison Recliner can be customized with either a wooden or metal handle. Further, you can select a right or left-handed handle to suit your preferences. 

Power Upgrade
