In this review, find out why the Easton reclining sofa is one of the top five selling sofas in Ottawa and Kingston.
Clean lines meet exceptional comfort with Easton. Ultra-plush seats with full chaise create a continuous zone of comfort and give you plenty of room to stretch out. If only lounging could be a sport!
“I don’t want a big, puffy sofa” is a request Barbara Patton has heard countless times in her extensive career as a design consultant. With the longest tenure at La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries in Kingston, Barbara has helped many people find their perfect seats.
As the creator of major motion upholstery, La-Z-Boy possesses over 90 years of innovative design experience.
Whether you’re designing a whole new room or adding a sofa to existing pieces, Easton blends right in. Slightly flared, key-shaped arms frame its three roomy seats for a unique, yet uncomplicated silhouette.

Is the Easton Sofa Right For You?
Thanks to its irresistible curves and incredible comfort, the Easton sofa is as stylish as it is inviting. It has tall split backs, flared padded arms, and a chaise seat that gives you a continuous reclining surface.
Barbara makes note of the unique squared top-stitching on the headrest of the reclining cushions. "I think this gives the user extra headrest support without even needing to ipgrade to power," she says.
The Easton also features an easy to reach, hidden dual side latch release allows trouble-free activation of the footrest release.
Size & Dimensions
One size does not fit all when it comes to comfort. Based on its dimensions and taller back, the Easton sofa is a good fit for most petite to average height individuals. More specifically, the Easton can suit those between the heights of 5'4" to 5'9".
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 Easton Sofa 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
Take some time to personalize your comfort so that your new sofa doesn’t just suit your home; it suits your way of living. Here is a list of the options available for the Easton furniture family.
La-Z-Boy has over 800 fabrics to choose from, making the experience of personalizing your furniture seemingly endless.
The Easton Sofa comes in fabric with 6 different select fabric colours. These fabric options do not increase the base price of your Easton.
If you choose to purchase any fabrics outside of the select covers, please note that an additional fee will apply.
As for leather, you can choose recycled leather, however, no select leather covers are available for the Easton. If you’re wondering about the Leather Selection at La-Z-Boy, 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 [Furniture] is offered 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, Easton 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 Easton Sofa 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 Easton Sofa 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 price of the Easton sofa is in the lower range of the dozens of styles we offer. Easton’s reclining feature does have an impact on how much a sofa costs.
However, since the Easton model is part of our Smart Buy program, it is subject to the lowest pricing in its category. A discounted price for the sofa is available for a few select fabric options.
The biggest driver of cost for fabric is the volume produced. These select covers are purchased in bulk at a lower price, specifically for the Easton frame. Consequently, the savings then benefit the consumer.
The starting price of the Easton reclining sofa is $2,389 in the 6 select fabric colours. If you choose to upgrade it to power, the starting price will be $3,389. Fabric or leather chosen, as well as other selected upgrades, will have an impact on price.

Great Design, Comfort and Style
This “motion” upholstery does exactly what it says. The leather is soft and moulds to your body with excellent lower back and upper thigh support. The manual recliner control is easy to use and glides open and closes with no effort with full leg support. No need to get motorized. Just love the blueberry colour and grain quality and stitching. Worth checking out for sure!
good quality product
We wasted a lot of time going to other furniture store shopping, you might find a cheaper sofa but you won’t find one with the same quality fit and comfort as this one. You just can’t beat lazy boy products and customer service!
Love our new recliner sofa
Love our new sofa. Reclines so smoothly & very comfortably. It’s smart-looking & blends well with the furniture in the room. I’ve fallen asleep in the reclining position because it’s so comfortable! Recommended to my best friend who bought a new house. She purchased a sofa & a love seat.
Is the Easton Reclining Sofa Right For You?
Now that you know everything you need to know about the Easton, you might have already made your decision about this reclining chair. If not, there might still be some things holding you back. Let's take a look at your budget, the functionality of the chair and the overall style to see if the Easton is truly the right fit for you and your home.
Firstly, the Easton Sofa is considered more in the medium price range of recliners at La-Z-Boy, making it more expensive than other options out there. However, this is because it is at a competitive price since it is considered a best seller. Even though there might be more affordable options out there, do not let this price intimidate you.
La-Z-Boy is typically more expensive than other furniture retailers out there. But, even though this is true, getting a La-Z-Boy recliner is considered an investment. This means you're likely to save some money from repairs and purchasing new furniture for a long time.
If you're looking for more affordable options, check out our 10 Most Affordable Chairs list.
In terms of functionality, the Easton is a wider reclining that can suit any average-height individual. However, the guidelines of who can sit in this recliner can be bent. Barbara says, "I've sold this sofa to people shorter than 5 feet and they've sat in this recliner comfortably."
If you do live in a smaller space, however, the Easton might make your space feel more crowded, meaning it might not suit your space as well as other small recliners. While it is true that stationary furniture does take up less space, there are recliners at La-Z-Boy that appear as stationary pieces. To learn more about this check out our review article on the Duo Collection.
lastly, Barbara explains that Easton’s streamlined look has her recommending this style when she hears this objection. Since the sofa hit showroom floors three years ago, its casual, and contemporary design has made it a popular choice. But not everyone is convinced some of the cushioned bulk is necessary.
Barbara confessed that some buyers need a bit more explanation because the Easton, doesn’t quite meet this desired feature.
Your home is filled with your favourite people and things. Certainly, your furniture should reflect the many sides of your life – stylish, durable, sensible and full of personality.
The Easton reclining sofa brings modern comfort to your family or living room. It’s ideal for those that love to lounge and prefer clean lines and a casual style. Transitional arm style allows Easton to pair easily with many different styles. As part of our Smart Buy program, it is the most cost-effective reclining sofa if you are willing to sacrifice your choice of fabric.
If you feel the Easton sofa can meet your high demands, it is worth a trip to one of our Ottawa and Kingston La-Z-Boy locations to meet in person!
Barbara cautions that all our sofas have a different feel to them and no two are alike. It is best to meet with a design consultant to get fitted for your perfect seat!
