La-Z-Boy Devon Reclining Sectional: In-Depth Review
February 28, 2020
Are you looking to find out more about the Devon sectional sofa? You may be wondering, what are the Devon’s features and benefits and is it right for me?
In this review, find out why the Devon sectional couch is one of our five best-selling sectionals lists in Ottawa and Kingston. It’s our second best-selling reclining sectional behind the Trouper sectional and number three in North America!
Jenna Leblanc is a design consultant at La-Z-Boy Home Furnishing and Décor in Kanata. During her last two years at La-Z-Boy, she’s helped hundreds of clients find their perfect seats.
Jenna says, “when clients come into the store looking for a comfy sectional, it’s the first thing I show them. The plush neutral fabric that we have on the showroom floor appeals to many people. It works well for a basement recreation room or any other spacious room, and it is, of course, extremely comfortable.”
The Devon is one of the larger and most versatile sectionals La-Z-Boy has to offer. With a wide variety of pieces to choose from, you can configure the Devon to rooms of virtually all sizes and shapes.
Generously scaled, it features casual pillow-top seats, ultra-plush pillow backs, and padded curved arms. Standard cushions include high-grade foam seat cushions that maintain their comfort and appearance. Double-picked blown fibre fill for improved cushion loft and shape retention or upgrade to AirForm cushions.
The Devon also features modular pieces with 20" accent pillows, which gives you more comfort and relaxation in its family friendly seating.
Size & Dimensions
The size and dimensions can tell you a lot about a furniture item. To ensure that the Devon can fit in your home, it is always important to measure your space.
One size does not fit all when it comes to comfort. Based on its dimensions, the Devon sectional is a good fit for almost everyone.
While your height can be a considerable factor, it is important to note that height guidelines are NOT set in stone. The way you sit in a furniture item can drastically affect how someone might find a seat comfortable.
This is why we highly recommend coming in-store and taking a sit test to determine if the Devon is right for your unique body type. To learn more, take a look at our article How to Find a Recliner That is The Best Fit For You.
Options and Upgrades
Take some time to investigate your options so that your new sectional doesn’t just suit your home; it suits your way of living. The Devon furniture set has various customization options available.
Fabric & Leather Options
With over 800 fabrics and leathers to choose from, customers have a wide variety of colours, textures, and patterns to suit every taste and style.
When choosing fabrics, the Devon comes in 5 select fabric covers with 2 different textures. As for leather selections, the Devon is only limited to recycled leather.
Select fabrics are specifically chosen to match a particular furniture frame and do not affect the starting price.
It's important to remember that choosing any type of leather will result in additional costs for the furniture. You can learn more about La-Z-Boy’s Leather Selection by checking out this article.
Leather options, even select leather, will always increase the overall cost. Ultimately, choosing fabric or leather is up to you if you’re willing to spend more on leather products.
Please note that this article's leather or fabric options may be discontinued or unavailable without prior notice. We recommend contacting your local Ottawa or Kingston La-Z-Boy store by phone or in-person to confirm availability. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by any changes to our upholstery selection.
Alongside our extensive range of covers, the Devon is also available in specialty fabrics that offer unique features and benefits…
Innovative iClean Technology surrounds each fabric and leather fibre, creating a barrier that repels spills before turning into stains.
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 cover to protect against mould, mildew, and odour-causing bacteria.
Superior stain and fade resistance properties make fabrics easy to clean and incredibly durable.
Conserve Sustainable Fabrics are soft, durable and made from recycled water bottles.
Restore by Nanobionic® features a mineral-based fabric coating that transforms natural body heat into energy using infrared technology.
At an additional cost, Devon cushions can also be upgraded to include firmer cushioning, meaning over time, your furniture will remember your unique figure and enhance the comfort of your furniture. This could be a great option for people with mobility issues, allowing you to get in and out of your furniture more comfortably.

Devon comes with pillows, which means you can customize those as well. You can accessorize your pillows by adding an accent colour to them, as well as contrasting welt, cording or fringe. Luckily for you, the Devon also includes 2 additional select accent pillow options, meaning those will not affect your price.
If you want to get specific, you can also request feather padding for your pillows instead of the usual foam padding.

In its smallest configuration, the starting price is $3,639. From there, the cost can be as expensive as $10,000 depending on different upholstery chosen, increased number of seats, sofa bed, and other options selected.

Is The Devon Sectional Right for You?
While we've heard plenty about this comfortable sectional, you might not be sure about the Devon right for you. Here are some last minute factors to consider before deciding if the Devon is right for you.
There are a lot of fabrics cut and sewn and ready to go and as a result, the Devon is less expensive compared to similar-sized sectionals. Jenna says, “It’s a pretty big favourite for a lot of families because of its versatility. You can put a sofa bed in it, add reclining seats, chaises, and it’s really really plush. One of the softest ones we have!”
If you have the room and comfort is your number one priority, Jenna says you can’t go wrong with the Devon.
The Devon is not streamlined or modern, and some say it’s not their style because they don’t want anything “puffy.” Because of its size, it will not fit into small spaces.
Jenna doesn’t recommend putting it in an open-concept space with its back exposed. It’s not smooth or streamlined from behind, so it should be placed against a wall.” For an open concept room, she’d recommend something from our Duo furniture collection, such as the Edie sectional.
The Devon sectional’s versatility and it’s price point make it a good fit for many families.
You fill your home with your favourite people and things. Your furniture should reflect the many sides of your life – stylish, durable, sensible, and full of personality.
