How Much Does a La-Z-Boy Lift Chair Recliner Cost?


Many factors influence the cost of a lift chair. Quality, customization and upgrades, to name a few. It’s essential to keep in mind how often your recliner will be used and what purpose it will serve. 


Four principle price brackets are identified below, along with the corresponding La-Z-Boy lift chair series.


Low to Mid Range Lift Chair Recliner Cost – Silver Series 


The James power lift recliner is the only style in our silver series.  With its convenient space-saving design, you can fully recline with the chair placed just five inches from a wall.  The James power lift chair has a standard seat scale and a lift capacity of 325 pounds.



La-Z-Boy James Power Lift ReclinerComfortable, cool and laid back, James makes relaxing look as great as it feels. It has a standard scale and an inviting bucket-style seat.

To help you create a cohesive design, La-Z-Boy offers style sets. The James style is what we call a supergroup as it has a sofa, loveseat, and sectional option. To learn more about this style and other power series recliner products, check out this review of the James Power Recliner.

Mid Range Lift Chair Recliner Cost – Gold Series 


In this price bracket, the Clayton Gold Power Lift Recliner with massage and heat is available for a starting price of $3,439. One of the main differentiating factors in the gold series Clayton model is the ability for independent back and leg rest positions.


As a result, there are more options in the controller. Furthermore, the Clayton, along with platinum series lift recliners, feature a box-in-box construction, and it boasts the highest weight capacity of 500 pounds.



La-Z-Boy Clayton Power Lift ReclinerFunctionality and rugged good looks make Clayton a stylish addition to any room. Activate the high/low heat and 6-motor massage for additional comfort. Use the ergonomically designed wired controller to get in or out, or fully recline. The starting price for the Clayton lift chair is $3,679.

High-End Lift Chair Recliner Cost – Platinum Series

The platinum series lift recliners have a model without massage and heat, so the starting cost is lower. The massage and heat models are priced similarly to the Clayton in the gold series and fall in the mid-price range.


However, the additional headrest and lumbar model provide the Astor and Pinnacle lift recliners with their platinum status and corresponding highest price point. When you can adjust the lumbar support and headrest tilt independently to fit your body, you can experience a complete custom fit! 


Designed especially for larger users, lift recliners in the platinum series feature deep, wide seats and come standard with a tall base. This base adds 1.5 inches to the overall height of the recliner.

Could you benefit from having a chair recline into the bed layout to reduce pressure on your lower back and spine?


For some people, a recliner is a much more comfortable position to be in than lying flat. The added functionality of zero gravity positioning is only available in the platinum series lift chairs. This position involves elevating your legs over your heart’s level, which promotes circulation in the legs and reduces swelling.

Options and Upgrades Available For a Power Lift Recliner and How It Affects Price


Take some time to investigate your choices so that your new lift chair recliner doesn’t just suit your home; it suits your way of living.  Power lift chairs have various customization options available.

Upholstery / Cover Options


Your choice of fabric upholstery is a pivotal decision when selecting a lift chair recliner. There are several hundred cover options so you can custom-create a look that’s uniquely yours. Choose from a wide variety of colours, patterns and textures. Life can be hard on furniture, so our fabrics are wear-tested for quality and durability, ensuring they stay beautiful for years.


New call-to-action


Perfect for life’s little mishaps, our stain-resistant iClean™ fabrics repel spills before they turn into stains.  These fabrics have a luxurious feel and are available in dozens of colours and patterns for the Pinnacle power lift chair.



The Pinnacle also has a subset of covers available in “conserve” fabric. Soft, durable, and sustainable “conserve” fabric is made out of recycled water bottles. We use as many as 50 recycled water bottles to create a recliner with this eco-friendly material. They come in a wide range of colours and patterns to complement your room.


It is important to note that leather is not available in any lift chair, as it could pose a danger when lifting you out of the chair due to its sleeker surface.

Seat Cushions


High-quality polyurethane foam gives recliner cushions increased softness and support while providing exceptional durability.


Upgrade to Airform™ responsive cushioning for comfort that contours to your body and reduces pressure to sensitive areas like your hips and back. This upgrade is a good option if you enjoy a firm seat.

Other Factors During Purchase that Affect Lift Chair Recliner Cost

Additional Warranty


Most manufacturers offer one year of coverage, so it’s up to the retailer to provide better service and have their own extended warranty service plan. Learn more about the furniture protection plan offered by La-Z-Boy in the Ottawa/Kingston area.



Purchasing big-ticket furniture items for a house, such as a lift chair recliner, can prove to be quite the investment. Although these items are essential in the process of making a house into a home, it can sometimes be tricky to come up with the cash to cover these expenses right away.


That is why most furniture stores offer the option of furniture financing! Financing allows you to furnish your home sooner and pay off the investment over time.  Learn more about how furniture financing works.
