Review of the La-Z-Boy Greyson Furniture Family: Recliner, Loveseat, & Sofa
April 9, 2021
When you think comfort, think Greyson!
Racha Pharoan, a design consultant at La-Z-Boy, says that “the Greyson furniture is the Cadillac of comfort”.
Exquisitely designed, products from the Greyson products features pillow top arms, an extra-deep chaise seat, and legrest that creates a continuous zone of relaxation in the reclining position.
When a client comes in looking for a product that prioritizes comfort, without hesitation, Racha recommends the Greyson collection. She says that “the Greyson is the most top-of-the-line, luxurious comfort that we offer at La-Z-Boy”.
When it comes to style, Racha warns clients that they will either love or hate the Greyson. Putting comfort first, the Greyson may appear big and bulky in contrast to a sleek and minimalist interior design. With that being said, “the comfort is truly like nothing else!”
If you are seeking a recliner, loveseat, or sofa that provides you relief at the end of a long day, you may find exactly what you are looking for in the Greyson.
Read on to find out if the Greyson furniture family is for you. This article will review the Greyson products based on the following …
Greyson Furniture Family (Available Styles)
The Greyson family offers comfort in a variety of shapes and sizes for both individuals and shared relaxation. At La-Z-Boy, we offer a Greyson recliner, a Greyson reclining loveseat, and a Greyson reclining sofa.
Exceptional comfort and exceptional detailing are the hallmarks of the Greyson Recliner. You can enjoy individual leisure in the Greyson Recliner.
The Greyson Recliner is offered as either a Wall Recliner or Rocking Recliner. The Wall Recliner option allows you to recline mere inches away from the wall. Alternatively, the Rocking Recliner offers a soothing rocking motion while you lay back into the chair.
Both recliners are also available in both manual and power. Either recline back with the pull of a handle or the press of a button to smoothly and effortlessly lay back.
With lush curves and inviting cushion support, the Greyson Reclining Loveseat is destined to be everyone’s favourite spot for relaxation. Cuddle up with a loved one and recline together in the loveseat.
The Greyson loveseat is also offered in both manual or a power recline option.
Finally, you also have the option to share the comfort of Greyson with multiple others in the Greyson Reclining Sofa. The alluring curves and inviting cushions will draw everyone onto the Greyson Sofa.
The sofa is offered in both manual and power. The power options allows you to smoothly and effortlessly recline with just the touch of a hidden release button.
Products from the Greyson collection offer an ultra-comfortable place to sit back and recline.
With deep and wide bucket seats, Rach says sitting in a Greyson product is comparable to visiting a luxurious cinema. The chaise seat and leg rest create a continuous zone of rest and relaxation in the reclined position.
Padded pillow top arms and a tall back only enhance the pleasure of the Greyson. Further, Racha says that the Greyson products have built-in lumbar support to put your lower back at ease.
Moreover, Greyson products are manufactured with high-grade foam seat cushions that maintain their comfort and appearance over time. More specifically, the Greyson collection is made with hybrid bucket seat cushions.
For more detailed information on cushions, take a look at the Review of La-Z-Boy’s Chair and Sofa Seat Cushions.
In the Greyson recliners, the hybrid bucket seat cushions consist of 27 lb ILD top polyurethane foam fillers that extend to the front of the seat and 36 lb ILD bottom foam fillers.
In the Greyson loveseat and sofa, the hybrid bucket seat cushions consist of supportive 36 lb ILD/2.5 density foam wedge fillers that sit on top of a contoured-cut polyurethane foam core.
Filled with double-picked blown fiber, the fill improves the overall shape retention of all the Greyson products.
Offered in a wide variety of premium fabrics, the Greyson products can be customized to coordinate with your current home decor.
The Greyson is also offered in high-end leather options. According to Racha, the leather for the Greyson is unique with its soft and buttery feel.
Additionally, select leather and fabric comes standard with heavy gauge single-needle topstitching on the wings, arm posts, arm pads, chaise, and outside arms.
In manual, you can enjoy the Greyson leg rest in three locking positions.
Sizes & Dimensions
The size and dimensions can tell you a lot about a furniture item. To ensure that the Greyson family can fit in your home, it is always important to measure your space.
Generally speaking, Racha describes the size of the Greyson products as “big and bulky” compared to some of La-Z-Boy’s more sleek models.
The plush cushions and padded arms enhance the overall comfort of the chair, but it also takes up a considerable amount of space. With this, any of the Greyson products will require a fair bit of room to fit seamlessly with your current furniture arrangement.
In addition to fitting in your space, it is important that the Greyson recliner, loveseat, or sofa, is the right size for you. The tall back and bucket seats featured in the Greyson collection are best suited for taller individuals that are 5’10” and up.
Nevertheless, Racha says that a smaller individual can still find comfort in the Greyson products as the large bucket seats can be a great place to curl up in rather than recline.
This is why we highly recommend coming in-store and taking a sit test to determine if the Greyson furniture family 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 Greyson collection.
Whether you are purchasing the Greyson Recliner, Loveseat, or Sofa, you have the ability to make it uniquely yours with a variety of options and upgrades.
One thing that makes the Greyson unique from other products offered at La-Z-Boy is that it only comes in leather. Given that the Greyson is only available in leather, this does limit the number of cover options.
Greyson’s select leather options are selected to compliment its unique frame. These include 3 leather colours Ice, Blue Gray and Caramel offered at the starting price point.
If you want more colour choices, there are Custom Leather or Custom Leather Plus options. However, these do come at an additional cost. To learn more about La-Z-Boy’s Leather Selection, check out this article.
*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 Greyson is offered in specialty fabrics that offer unique features and benefits…
Stain Resistant Covers
Innovative iClean technology surrounds each fabric fiber, creating a barrier that repels spills before they turn 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 fiber to protect against mold, mildew, and odor-causing bacteria.
Superior stain and fade resistance properties make these 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.
Stain Resistant Cover
Innovative iClean Technology protects the surface of the leather to repel spills before they turn into stains.
Similar to high-performance fabrics at La-Z-Boy, our Crypton leathers repel dust, dirt and stains. It also protects against harmful UV damage and replenishes natural oils.
As with antimicrobial fabrics at La-Z-Boy, antimicrobial leathers help protect the surface from mould, mildew, and odour-causing bacteria to appear.
At an additional cost, Greyson's 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.
For more information on whether this upgrade is right for you, view our Motion Furniture Collection catalogue and our in-depth Review of La-Z-Boy’s Chair and Sofa Seat Cushions.
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.
Swivel Base or Tall Base Option
If you would enjoy the ability to swivel from left to right while simultaneously enjoying reclining comfort, you may consider the swivel base option on your Greyson Recliner.
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.
Power Upgrade with Headrest
You can upgrade the Greyson family 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 Greyson 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.

The Greyson 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.
Cadillac comfort doesn’t always come cheap.
The products in the Greyson collection fall within the high-end price bracket on the market, as well as within the high-end price bracket at La-Z-Boy.
While the cost of the Greyson family is considered quite standard at La-Z-Boy, it is important to note that La-Z-Boy furniture is considered more expensive in the market. This cost is reflected in the quality of materials and craftsmanship of our products.
With this, the investment tends to be worthwhile if you are looking for long-lasting furniture.
