What is an Accent Chair?
Before we dive into the cost of an accent chair at La-Z-Boy, it is important to define exactly what an accent chair is and the value it can have in your home.
Let’s set the scene. Say you were going to visit a friend’s house for dinner. Before you guys eat you decide to relax and catch up in the living room.
Since it is your first time in their house, you notice how your friend has styled every room. From the decorations put up to the furniture around you, to all of the colours.
“When you’re in a new place for the first time, your eyes are trying to catch every detail and some things catch the attention more than others,” Magaly explains.
Once you reach the living room, your eyes focus not on the sofa or the other furniture items, but on this chair. It’s different than the other furniture pieces in some way. Maybe because it has a different colour that makes it stand out from the rest of the furniture? Perhaps it’s covered in a unique upholstery pattern?
This is what an accent chair is! An accent chair is a furniture piece that catches the attention of anyone that enters the room.
What Is Considered an Accent Cair at La-Z-Boy?
When it comes to the selection of accent chairs at La-Z-Boy, Magaly says that stationary chairs are not the only options customers use as accent pieces. She states that recliners can be accent chairs if they have a more distinct look than the other furniture in the room.
With a uniquely coloured or patterned upholstery, you can use the following La-Z-Boy chair types as an accent chair:
“So long as they stand out and they have a different colour of leather or fabric, they can also be considered accent chairs,” Magaly says.

Factors that Affect the Cost of Accent Chairs at La-Z-Boy
With these cost ranges in mind, the cost of an accent chair at La-Z-Boy depends on a number of factors.
Quality of Materials & Craftsmanship
First and foremost, the cost of an accent chair at La-Z-Boy is dependent on the quality of the materials and craftsmanship.
La-Z-Boy’s accent chairs are built with Premiere Construction, meaning they are built with quality crafted materials that are made to last a long time. This, however, means that our accent chairs and other furniture items are more expensive than other retailers.

Size & Shape of the Frame
The size and shape of an accent chair also affect its cost because it determines the amount of materials required to make it. Magaly states that with an accent chair, most of the stylizing is done with the arms of the chair, significantly affecting the materials used.
“Any time a furniture is produced, it is the arms that require the most material than any other part of the furniture piece,” she says. The bigger the arms, the more a chair will cost.
Presently, the only furniture frame with no arms at La-Z-Boy is the Nolita Chair, which just so happens to be the least expensive accent chair at La-Z-Boy.
Alternatively, a Chair & a Half or a bulky recliner might be more expensive because they require the most materials to be made.
Customizations & Upgrades
La-Z-Boy is all about customization, from the type of fabric or leather covering you choose, cushion density, the wood finish colour on the legs, and even the nailhead trim on some items.
With this, the price also depends on the number of embellishments you want to add to your accent chair.
La-Z-Boy has over 800 fabric covers to choose from, meaning you can truly make your accent chair as unique as you want.
Some furniture frames come with a number of select fabric options, which do not increase the price of your furniture piece. However, should you go beyond that selection, you will be subjected to additional fees.
If you opt for leather, this will likely increase the cost of your accent chair. Although leather is a more expensive option than fabric, leather tends to be extremely durable and long-lasting.
La-Z-Boy has a leather program, which includes various leather that goes from select to custom leather plus. If you customize your accent chair in leather, expect a cost increase of $200 - $850.

In addition to the upholstery covers mentioned above, La-Z-Boy also offers specialty fabrics that offer unique features and benefits. The following specialty fabrics are available:
- Stain Resistant Fabric: Innovative iClean Technology surrounds each fabric fibre, creating a barrier that repels spills before turning into stains.
- Pet-Friendly Fabric: Tested and formulated to withstand the scratches and wear that a pet can cause to ensure a durable and easily washable fabric.
- Antimicrobial Fabric: Antimicrobial properties surround each fibre to protect against mould, mildew, and odour-causing bacteria.
- Performance: Superior stain and fade resistance properties make fabrics easy to clean and incredibly durable.
- Eco-Friendly: Conserve Sustainable Fabrics are soft, durable and made from recycled water bottles.
Contrasting Welt Trim
Contrasting welt trim is a great way to add character to your accent chair, but this addition does come at a cost. The price of adding a contrasting welt trim is an extra $100 to the starting price of your accent chair.
Wood Leg Finish
Some accent chairs at La-Z-Boy have distinct decorative wood legs that complement the look of your chair. The main wood finish option that La-Z-Boy has for wood legs is brown mahogany, which does not change the price of the furniture item.
With that being said, if you opt for alternative options like graphite, coffee, or driftwood, there will be an additional cost.
If you want a wood leg finish aside from the standard colour, an additional $70 will be added to the starting price of your accent chair.
Some accent chairs, such as recliners and chair & a halves have the ability to be upgraded to a power recliner. Instead of having to manually recline with a latch or a lever on the outside of the furniture frame, you can now recline with a side-mounted control panel. With just the touch of a button, you can recline in a multitude of positions.
The additional cost of adding the power upgrade to an accent chair is typically $300. This price can fluctuate depending on the furniture frame.
