September 19, 2022

Est. Reading Time: 10 Mins

Shopping for the right furniture can be tough. With so many furniture stores in every corner of the city, you would think everyone would have relatively the same furniture. 

Unfortunately, every brand is different, which makes things more difficult for a consumer to know which furniture store is right for them.

At La-Z-Boy, we realize we are not meant for everyone, which is why we like to make comparisons between our furniture and other successful furniture stores located in Ottawa and Kingston.

Take Cadieux, for example. This furniture store has a lot of similarities with La-Z-Boy, as they are both high-quality furniture stores. However, they also have very notable differences, which is what this article will delve into.

If you have your eyes on both Cadieux and La-Z-Boy, this article will hopefully help you make an informed decision on which retailer is better for you.

Brief Descriptions of Each Retailer

Before we get into the detailed comparison, let’s familiarize ourselves with both retailers.

Cadieux Interiors

Cadieux is a local Ottawa furniture store that sells high-end home furnishings for almost every room in the house. 

Starting in 1962, Cadieux has grown into what they call a “Canadian lifestyle brand,” curating unique, quality products from around the world. Since introducing its website in 2012, Cadieux prides itself in creating an easy, user-friendly experience in its showrooms and on the web.

With their interior design services at the forefront of their branding, Cadieux claims to ensure that “every home is livable, creating rooms that were once ordinary into amazing pieces of art that you can live in and love.”

La-Z-Boy Ottawa & Kingston

La-Z-Boy is an American company that was first established in Michigan, the United States, over 90 years ago

Although an American-born company, the Ottawa and Kingston locations have been locally owned and operated by the Maxwell family since 2011 and have been a successful branch of the furniture company since its inception.

La-Z Boy prides itself on its furniture quality, style, and comfortability, which is why one of its popular phrases is "style meets comfort."

La-Z-Boy’s primary specialty is living room furniture, but they also sell furniture for other home rooms, including the dining room and bedroom. Additionally, La-Z-Boy also offers a wide variety of home accessories and decor.


Living Room Furniture Selection

Both Cadieux and La-Z-Boy have a wide selection of furniture to choose from, all for different parts of the house.

Since both retailers emphasize their living room selection, for the purpose of this comparison article, we will strictly be focusing on living room furniture only

Cadieux Living Room Furniture Selection

Cadieux claims its furniture selection includes valuable and timeless furniture pieces that can be enjoyed for many years.

Along with their living room selection, Cadieux also sells beds, all-natural mattresses, dining tables, art, rugs, home accents, and much more.

Among their living room selection, there is quite a selection to choose from. Customers can choose between comfortable furniture seats while also shopping for occasional furniture that will compliment your furniture nicely.

For seating, Cadieux’s selection includes chairs, benches, ottomans, recliners, sectionals, sofas, and sleep sofas. As for living room accents, Cadieux has bars/bar carts, bookcases, chests/cabinets, coffee tables, consoles, side/end tables, and media units.

La-Z-Boy Living Room Furniture Selection

La-Z-Boy focuses on offering comfortable, quality, and stylish home furniture and decor. 

That said, there is an emphasis on creating high-quality and comfortable sofas, sectionals, and of course, the well-known recliner chair.

La-Z-Boy furniture is offered in stationary, manual reclining, and power reclining. While all of these choices vary in price, it is up to you to decide which option is better.

Aside from upholstered living room furniture, La-Z-Boy also offers a range of occasional tables from the La-Z-Boy incorporated sub-divisions Hammary, American Drew, and Kincaid. This selection includes coffee tables, side tables, and entertainment units. 

To complete a living room arrangement, you can also find an assortment of accessories and decor.


Where It Is Made

Where a retailer’s furniture is made tells us a lot about the company. Let’s take a look at Cadieux and La-Z-Boy’s product origins to see what they say about each retailer.

Where is Cadieux Furniture Made?

Unfortunately, there is no clear answer as to where Cadieux’s furniture is made due to Cadieux’s furniture being outsourced from different retailers and manufacturers. This means they do not manufacture their own products. 

However, if you are curious about their different brands and manufacturers, you can find out about each of them through Cadieux’s website

For example, if you were to click on one of Cadieux’s trusted brands, like Bernhardt, you would be directed to a page that showcases their furniture selection, as well as an option to go on their website. 

If you go on Berhardt’s about section on their website, you can see that they manufacture their furniture in North Carolina. So, finding out where a brand is manufactured is as easy as informing yourself about other furniture brands or manufacturers.

Where is La-Z-Boy Furniture Made?

First, it is important to highlight the fact that all furniture sold at La-Z-Boy is manufactured by La-Z-Boy.

La-Z-Boy is a global manufacturer operating in North America, Asia, and Europe. La-Z-Boy’s products are primarily made in North America for North American markets, with their global headquarters being in Monroe, Michigan

Our recliners, chairs, sofas, and sectionals that are sold in Ottawa and Kingston are mostly manufactured in Dayton, Tennessee

Customization Options

Not everyone sells it, but custom furniture is becoming a popular demand for homeowners nowadays. When it comes to customization options, there is a lot to discuss between both Cadieux and La-Z-Boy.

Cadieux Customization Options

Along with its global manufacturers, Cadieux does have customization options for its furniture. 

More specifically, you can also choose to change an upholstery cover from a furniture item. Cadieux has both fabric and leather options to choose from. You can also choose to customize almost everything down to the nailhead trim colours.

Even non-seating options are customizable. Make sure to talk to a sales representative to know what is considered customizable on your interested furniture item.

What’s more, with certain furniture items, like a sofa, you can choose to change the size of the furniture piece. 

Although custom furniture at Cadieux sounds enticing, be aware that it takes longer to end up in your home. Some deliveries can take up to 6 months depending on the item and how many personalized customizations it has.

La-Z-Boy Customization Options

Similarly, upholstery furniture at La-Z-Boy is highly customizable.

With over 800 fabrics and leathers to choose from, there are many possibilities to make your furniture unique to your own personal style.

Aside from upholstery customization, La-Z-Boy living room furniture is also customizable in wood finish, nailhead trim, and welt trim, depending on the chosen frame. 

Further, furniture items at La-Z-Boy have many upgrades, such as the upgrade to power. With power, select models are available with even more additional upgrades, such as heat & massage, power lift options for recliners, and adjustable headrest & lumbar

Power furniture at La-Z-Boy requires control panels and remotes to use them. To learn more about using our Control Panels & Remotes, check out this article.

It is important to remember that all upgrades at La-Z Boy come at an additional cost.
