April 23, 2021

Review of the La-Z-Boy Finley Furniture Family: Recliner, Loveseat, & Sofa

Looking for reclining comfort with contemporary style? The Finley furniture family fits the bill with modern lines, sleek track arms, and a tall foam back that gives it a neat and structured look. The ultra-plush chaise seat and leg rest cradle the body in a continuous zone of comfort. 


Magaly del Castillo, the Interior Designer at La-Z-Boy Cyrville, “loves the Finley!” It is one of her favourites. 


As one of the newer editions to the La-Z-Boy lineup, Magaly describes the Finley as “a little bit more modern than the typical La-Z-Boy recliner”. She says that the Finley would fit seamlessly into any contemporary, modern, or transitionally styled room. 


With a tall back, narrow arm, and taut upholstery, the Finley gives off a clean and modern appeal while still providing exceptional comfort and lumbar support. Not to mention, Finley products allow you to recline back with ease, in both power and manual options.

New call-to-action


Offered in a range of quality fabrics and leathers, Magaly says that the upholstery chosen for the Finley is extremely influential in its overall appearance. 


Furniture from the Finley family is a great choice, but is it the right choice for you?


Read on for an in-depth review of the Finley furniture family, including the Finley Recliner, Loveseat, and Sofa.

The Finley family offers contemporary comfort in a variety of shapes and sizes, both for individual and shared enjoyment.

Finley Recliner



The Finley Recliner allows you to lay back and kick up your feet in style. Depending on your personal preferences, the Finley is offered as a Rocking, Wall, or a Gliding Recliner. 


Both the rocking and wall recliners are available in manual and power with headrest. Additionally, these super-charged recliners can come with the option to upgrade to lumbar support


The Finley Rocking and Gliding Recliner offers independent back and leg rest functionality, allowing you to rock in a smooth and graceful motion, even when not reclining.


The Finley Wall Recliner can be placed mere inches from the wall.

Finley Loveseat


Whether you're snuggling up with your partner or enjoying some quality time with loved ones or friends, the Finley Wall Reclining Loveseat is the perfect spot. With its comfortable design, everyone can share in the enjoyment of its cozy embrace.


Further upgrades for the Loveseat includes power with headrest, lumbar support, and console!

Finley Sofa


The Finley Wall Reclining Sofa is the epitome of comfort, offering a reclining option for everyone. 


With its three seat cushions and manual or power options, many can enjoy its relaxing embrace. Just like the Loveseat, the Power Finley Sofa also boasts smooth reclining motion, thanks to its 4-button controls.

Unique Features


The Finley furniture family combines reclining comfort with contemporary style. With clean, modern lines and sleek track arms, the Finley products are designed to be anything but bulky. 


The tall foam back contributes to the structured look of the pieces, while Magaly notes that the seat is deep yet high. 


While you can sink back into the comfortable depth of the Finley seat, its unique height prevents you from fully sinking in like you would with other recliners or sofas.


With this being said, the Finley is made with La-Z-Boy’s patented ComfortCore® Cushions. This 7-layer zoned cushion technology offers added support for the spine, hips and behind the knees. 


For more detailed information on cushions, take a look at the Review of La-Z-Boy’s Chair and Sofa Seat Cushions


In addition to high-grade cushions, the Finley is filled with double-picked blown fiberfill that ensures improved shape retention of the product over time. 


Magaly also mentions that the built-in lumbar support in the Finley is exceptional.

Sizes & Dimensions


The size and dimensions can tell you a lot about a furniture item. To ensure that the Finley can fit in your home, it is always important to measure your space.


According to Magaly, the Finley furniture family boasts a sleek and compact design, far from being bulky. Its crisp and clean appearance adds to its overall appeal. 


The tall back and high seat make it the perfect choice for individuals of average to tall height, providing exceptional comfort for those between 5'4" and 6'2".


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 Finley 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 & Upgrades


Everything at La-Z-Boy is customizable, including the Finley furniture. 


Whether you are purchasing the Finley Recliner, loveseat, or sofa you have the ability to make it uniquely yours with a variety of options and upgrades.

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 Finley comes in 8 select fabric covers with 2 different textures. Customers can choose between the Camila fabrics, which have a smoother look to them, or the Ollie fabrics, which have a more rougher texture.


There are also 2 select leather options available, which are called Pewter and Chocolate. 


Select fabrics are specifically chosen to match a particular furniture frame and do not affect the starting price.


La-Z-Boy offers alternative leather options such as leather match and recycled leather. 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.

In addition to the cover options mentioned above, the Lennon is available in specialty fabrics and leathers with unique features and benefits…

Stain Resistant Covers

Innovative iClean Technology surrounds each fabric and leather 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 Covers

Antimicrobial properties surround each fibre 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.

Energy Restoration

Restore by Nanobionic® features a mineral-based fabric coating that transforms natural body heat into energy using infrared technology.

Handle Options


To add more style to your La-Z-Boy manual recliner, you have the option to customize the length and material of the convenient reclining handle.


At an extra cost, you can opt to elongate the handle if you find it too short for your comfort. Additionally, you can choose from a variety of materials for the handle, including wooden, brushed nickel, or matte black. The chrome handle can also be elongated, matching the wooden one in size.


What’s more, for all left-handed users, you can change your handle from the standard right side to the left. This also comes at an additional cost.

Optional Swivel Base


If you're interested, the Finley rocking recliner is available with a swivel base for an extra cost. La-Z-Boy's swivel bases provide a 360-degree rotation, allowing you to easily turn and face any direction.


You can also upgrade your swivel base into a power swivel recliner, which can recline at the touch of a button. The power swivel base, however, only rotates 165 degrees to prevent the power cord from getting tangled within the furniture frame.


Additionally, you can upgrade your Finley Recliner swivel base option in either a standard brown mahogany or coffee finish.


To learn more about our Swivel Chair options, check out our list of Swivel Accent Chairs. 


Cushion Upgrade


At an additional cost, Finley 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. 


Power Upgrade with Adjustable Headrest


You can upgrade the Finley to power. 


Unlike manual furniture that uses a handle or latch, power recliners come with a control panel or a wireless remote for easy reclining at the touch of a button. You can also adjust the headrest support with this convenient feature.


The adjustable headrest allows you to move the head of the recliner from 0-55 degrees, giving you more range of motion with your reclining positions.


What’s more, the recliners have USB ports next to the control panels to charge your electronic devices and two memory settings that allow you to save any of your favourite relaxing positions. This way, you can easily recline back to the position you favour quickly and accurately. 


All power upgrades can be cordless, thanks to our rechargeable battery pack. With this, you can place your power recliners anywhere without worrying about plugging them into an electrical outlet.

Adjustable Lumbar Support 


The Finley can also be upgraded to include adjustable lumbar support for an additional cost when choosing the power option.


Like the headrest feature, you can control the lower lumbar area of your recliner with the wireless remote. In this case, the lumbar support can expand 3 inches out or deflate to perfectly match the unique curvature of your lumbar spine. 


To help you decide if the headrest & lumbar upgrade is right for you, check out Review of La-Z-Boy Power Recliners with the Headrest & Lumbar Feature.

Console Upgrade


The Finley loveseat has the option to include a console in the middle of the seat. This handy center console adds extra storage


Cup holders are also included, meaning you can sit back and relax without getting up to grab a drink. Further, the console offers an interior electronic charging input instead of the ports outside the loveseat, as well as a light-up function, so you can easily see your drinks in the dark.


If the console is something that interests you, you can also add Power with Headrest and Lumbar upgrades to enhance your loveseat into a truly comfortable experience.

Is the Finley Furniture Family Right For You?


The Finley Recliner, Loveseat, and Sofa are all great products, but are they right for you?


According to Magaly, the Finley products are best suited for the “modern or stylish” family. In fact, the Finley products might be the perfect choice for clients who are looking for a recliner, that doesn’t necessarily look like a recliner.


New call-to-actionWith the Finley, style nor comfort has to be sacrificed. It is the perfect compromise for clients who want to achieve a modern and streamlined look while still being able to kick up their feet and relax.

She says that if you are re-doing your family room, getting rid of old clunky furniture, and going for a more updated and contemporary look, the Finley will fit seamlessly into your vision.
