Review of the La-Z-Boy Edie duo® Sectional
May 3, 2021
Understated style meets oversized comfort with the Edie Sectional, part of our award-winning duo® collection.
The Edie Sectional exudes style! Its crisp lines, firm shape, and decorative legs give the Edie a classic yet transitional look. In fact, Racha, a design consultant at La-Z-Boy Hunt Club, says that the Edie is the most modern sectional from the duo® collection.
Depending on the cover you choose, the Edie is extremely versatile in that it can be coordinated well with a variety of current home decor trends.
Yaser Aliman, another design consultant at La-Z-Boy Hunt Club, loves the look of the Edie. Given its structured frame, he says many clients think that the Edie Sectional is stationary at first glance.
Many clients are surprised and pleased by Edie’s unexpected ability to recline, he says.
Are you looking for shared seating that is both classy and comfortable? The Edie Sectional may be exactly what you are looking for.
Read on for a comprehensive review of the Edie Sectional to determine if it is for you!
The Edie duo® Sectional is known for its clean and casual design featuring padded outer arms, a padded back, decorative wood legs, and welt trim. 20-inch knife-edge accent pillows with welt trim further enhance the stylish appeal of the Edie.
Beyond the style, the Edie offers unexpected comfort with the power to recline at the touch of a button. Simply use the silver-toned-2-button outside mounted controllers to recline and raise the leg rests.
Speaking of comfort, the Edie is built with patented ComfortCore® cushions that provide just the right amount of support for a short or long sit. Racha says that the cushions on the Edie are medium firmness; they aren’t too stiff but still provide proper support.
Not only does the Edie enhance the style of a room and provide comfort, but it also offers convenience with built-in USB ports to charge your mobile devices. The Edie can be plugged into an AC unit or runs on an optional battery pack.
The Edie is customizable in a variety of fabrics, leathers, and finishes. Moreover, the shape and size of the Edie Sectional are versatile. You can play around with several possible configurations to have it fit seamlessly into your space.
Size & Dimensions
According to Racha, the Edie is considered one of the larger sectionals offered at La-Z-Boy. It requires a fair amount of space to fit in a room comfortably.
Racha recommends that you take advantage of our design services at La-Z-Boy if you plan to purchase the Edie Sectional. Before choosing the Edie, our interior designers will help you determine if you have enough space for this sectional and then will help you choose the right configuration.
Configuration options will be discussed in more depth within the Options & Upgrades section of this article.
With more shallow seats and a short back, the dimensions of the Edie Sectional are best suited for someone between the heights of 5’3” 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 Edie is right for your unique body type. To learn more, take a look at our article How to Find the Right Sofa Size For You?

At an additional cost, Edie'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.
Please note that reclining furniture purchased prior to January 2021 had the option to upgrade to airform cushions. This cushion includes a two-inch layer of premium quality memory foam added on top of the standard foam base within the seat, chaise, and leg rest of the unit.
Sectional Configuration Options
The configuration of your Edie Sectional is very important as it will determine the overall shape and size of your sectional. This will also impact how the sectional fits in your room and how it coordinates with your furniture arrangement.
The Edie has three starter configurations to choose from.
When customizing the configuration of your Edie Sectional, it is important to keep in mind that the Edie does not offer single seating on one side. The Edie can only be configured as a loveseat on either side of a corner seat.
For more information on the Edie duo Sectional and potential configurations, take a look at the Edie duo Sectional Product Manual.

The Edie Sectional comes with matching throw pillows. If you are going for a bolder look, consider selecting contrasting accent pillows to make your Edie Sectional pop.
Additionally, you can choose to add cord or fringe to the pillow edge for a more decorative appeal.
For upgraded comfort opt for a FeatherLite fill feathers.
Contrasting Welt Trim
Welt trim provides a tailored look to sofa seat cushions. You can opt for contrasting welt trim on your Edie Sectional to add some personality and decorative detail.
La-Z-Boy is all about customization, including customizing the legs of your Edie. The legs can come in one of 3 finish options:
- Brown Mahogany (Standard Finish)
- Coffee (Additional Cost)
- Graphite (Additional Cost)
The Edie Sectional falls within the high-cost range of sectionals in the market. Currently, the starting cost of the Edie sectional, in its smallest configuration (3 pieces), is $6,559.
While the cost of the Edie sectional 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.

Find out what customers are saying about the Edie Sectional in the following four and five-star reviews…
When it comes to style, the ideal client for the Edie Sectional is someone going for a more modern look. “Someone who likes the look of stationary but wants a leg rest feature would love the Edie,” says Racha.
While the Edie is great for kicking up your legs and tilts slightly when leg rest fully extended, it is not very conducive to leaning back. If you are looking for a plush sectional to place in the home theatre with seats to fully recline, the Edie may not be the right choice.
Instead, the Edie is ideal for a casual sitting room meant for reading or hosting gatherings.
Yasir also suggests that the Edie might not be the right choice for someone who requires neck and head support. Given that the back of the Edie is short and does not have a headrest, it does not provide as much neck and head support as other models.
