Review of the La-Z-Boy Collins Stationary Sofa & Loveseat
March 29, 2021
The Collins Stationary Sofa and Loveseat both offer a look that feels perfectly at home in any space.
Magaly del Castillo, the interior designer at the La-Z-Boy Cyrville store, says that the Collins Sofa is the most transitional piece on the floor. "These pieces are where contemporary and traditional styles collide," she says.
Magaly says the flat-front rounded arm on the Collins provides a clean and updated version of the traditional round arm. Not to mention it is comfortable! The cushion on the arm of this furniture item is a fantastic place to rest your head.
From a designer’s perspective, Magaly loves the versatility of the Collins. Depending on the fabric cover and customizations, the Collins can coordinate with any style from boho, to coastal, to modern, to classic.
Not only does Magaly love the Collins Sofa & Loveseat, but so do many of our clients at La-Z-Boy. In fact, the Collins is one of our Top Five Best-Selling Sofas at La-Z-Boy Ottawa & Kingston.
Are you looking for a versatile stationary piece to complement your living room décor? The Collins Sofa or Loveseat might be exactly what you are looking for.

A sofa frame among the La-Z-Boy Premier Constructed furniture, the Collins is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty assuring the protection of your investment and overall satisfaction.
The Limited Lifetime Warranty covers the repair or replacement of the frame, spring system, and the mechanism, given that they are quality-crafted and built for long-lasting comfort.
While still built to last, other aspects of the product, such as fabrics, leather, and cushion, are prone to more destruction over time than parts of the frame. Although not covered for life, the La-Z-Boy Manufacturer’s Warranty still covers these parts for a given period of time, usually a few years.
As one of the top five best-selling sofas at La-Z-Boy, the Collins is enjoyed by many La-Z-Boy clients.
The Collins Sofa and Loveseat are rated 4.7/5 stars and 4.8/5 stars respectively in North America. This rating is based on a combination of comfort, quality, and design.

Extreme comfort and support.
We received this couch about 2 months ago and have been enjoying it every time we’re on it. We love this couch and are so happy with our choice. This couch is incredibly comfortable and good-looking. We’ve even had guests over that have complimented our couch, both in comfort and appearance. One guest has slept on it through the night and felt comfortable the whole night through. I do want to note that we upgraded ours with the foam inserts, just like they had for display in the store. The fabric is soft but durable and the large foam pillows are the perfect support for leaning and sitting against. We use other throw pillows for our heads though since the ones that come with the couch are rather large – but I like that. Gives us a variety in size. We went with the light gray colour. It brightens the room and doesn’t make it look small, and goes with all our other modern decor. Highly recommend!
The sofa and love seat are beautiful and amazingly comfortable. We opted for the gel seats and could not be more pleased.
Our Best Purchase!!!
Before we bought our new couch set, we had a 30yr old La-Z-Boy couch set from my fiance’s parents, even the older one was still in great shape. So after knowing that La-Z-Boy furniture could last that long we knew La-Z-Boy was the way to go when we got our new couch set. And we love it! We have the Collins Sofa with the matching love seat. The fabric La-Z-Boy uses is the kind that even with use and wear, it still looks great!
Is the Collins Sofa & Loveseat Right For You?
It is no question that the Collins is a beautiful piece of transitional furniture. But is it right for you?
Magaly says that the Collins is ideal for someone who is fairly tall, between the height to 5’10” and 6’2”. Someone at this height is likely looking for a deeper seat which they will find in the Collins.
With this being said, Magaly says shorter clients may also enjoy the Collins if they intend to kick off their shoes and curl up into the depth of the seat.
When it comes to style, the versatility of the Collins is great for a client who is looking for a furniture piece to work into a specific interior-design style. By taking advantage of customization options, Magaly says the Collins can fit seamlessly into a client’s home décor vision.
Although there are many positive customer reviews, the Collins may not be for everyone.
As previously mentioned, the Collins offers an updated version of a traditional sofa with the clean and sleek look of the flat-front rounded arm. With this being said, you may prefer something more modern. If this is the case, you may like the clean track arms of the Meyer Sofa. For a comparison of the Collins vs the Meyer, take a look at this article.
