La-Z-Boy Meyer Sectional: An In-Depth Review
Est. Reading Time: 9 Mins


Sometimes keeping things simple in design can be enough. When people look for comfort in their homes, they don’t always need all the gizmos and gadgets that recliners have. Stationary furniture can be perfect in its own right!


With the Meyer at La-Z-Boy, for example, this furniture family was so great it expanded to include a sectional later on.


Michelle MacLellan, the interior designer at La-Z-Boy Hunt Club, says, “The Meyer Sectional wouldn’t have been a thing it if weren’t for the popularity of the Meyer Sofa.”


Now, it has become one of our top-selling sectionals. While this sounds great, what are the Meyer’s key features and benefits and, most importantly, is it the right furniture for you?


Are you looking to find out more about the Meyer Sectional Sofa? You may be wondering, what are the Meyer’s features and benefits and is it right for me?

Unique Features


First and foremost, the unique features of a furniture piece can tell you a lot about if it's right for you. The Meyer sectional delivers simple style elements that are perfect for any casual and simple design approach.


Meyer's furniture frame features track arms, decorative wood legs, and welt trim to complement any room. It also features a multitude of sectional pieces to help configure your sectional in various shapes and sizes (More on that later).


It is also a sectional with deep, wide seats that are perfect for an afternoon nap. Patented ComfortCore® cushions provide support for a long or short sit. Available in your choice of fabrics and possible upgrades. 


The sectional features La-Z-Boy® Premier construction. It has a quality-crafted frame consisting of kiln-dried hardwood and furniture-grade laminates. It’s engineered for lasting durability.

Size & Dimensions


When purchasing a new furniture piece, especially large pieces like sectionals, it is always important to Measure Your Room.


One size does not fit all when it comes to comfort. Based on its dimensions, the Meyer sectional is a good fit for most average to taller height individuals. It has a very deep seat, so short legs will dangle. With that in mind, the Meyer best suits those within the heights of 6’3” and up.


Michelle, however, does say that this height is recommended only because the cushions are very deep. “Sometimes it’s hard to get out of them!” she says.


Also, since the Meyer is a sectional, it can be difficult to place this type of seating arrangement in a smaller space. But it is not impossible either! To learn more about Sectionals for Small Spaces, check out this article.


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 Meyer 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.

Options & Upgrades


At La-Z-Boy, everything is customizable, including the Meyer Sectional. Take some time to investigate your options so that your new sectional doesn’t just suit your home; it suits your way of living. You can make the sectional uniquely yours by customizing the fabric, seat cushions, wood finish, contrasting trims, and accent pillows.

Fabric Options 


La-Z-Boy has over 800 fabrics and leathers to choose from, making the experience of personalizing your furniture seemingly endless. It is important to note that the Meyer only comes in fabric and not leather.


Michelle reveals that the Meyer comes in 12 different select fabric options. Select fabrics are chosen to compliment Meyer’s specific furniture frame. In turn, these fabric options do not increase the base price of your Meyer. 


Should you choose to purchase any fabric that is not included as a select cover, you will be subjected to an additional fee. 


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 Meyer is offered in specialty fabrics with unique features and benefits …

Stain Resistant


Innovative iClean technology surrounds each fabric fibre, creating a barrier that repels spills before they become stains. 

Pet Friendly


Tested to simulate the scratches and wear that pets can cause, fabrics identified as pet-friendly are durable and easily washable.  

Antimicrobial Fabric


Antimicrobial properties surround each fibre to protect against mould, mildew, and odour-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. We use as many as 110 recycled water bottles to create a sectional with this eco-friendly material.


Energy Restoration


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


Cushion Upgrade


At an additional cost, Meyer 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, please see our stationary furniture collection catalogue.


Sectional Furniture Options & Configurations


An array of Meyer modules lets you customize the perfect sectional configuration for rooms of any size.

There are 6 basic sectional configurations below to show what your sectional can look like. You can also choose to go with your own unique design if you don’t prefer any of these choices.

Contrasting Welt Trim


Welt trim provides a tailored look to cushions and pillows but takes on an entirely new dimension in a contrasting colour. An unexpected touch, this decorative detail adds instant personality and highlights the sculptural lines of any silhouette. The Meyer has over 50 different colour and pattern choices for trim.


Pillow Options


The Meyer come with pillows, which means you can customize those as well. You can accessorize your pillows by adding an accent colour to them, as well as contrasting welt, cording or fringe.


If you want to get specific, you can also request feather padding for your pillows instead of the usual foam padding.


Finish Options


Finally, Meyer’s wood leg finish can be customized as well. Any Meyer furniture item comes in one of two finish options:


  1. Mahogany (Base Price)
  2. Coffee (Additional Cost)

The cost of the Meyer sectional is in the mid-high range of the sectionals now available on the market. The quality of materials used in construction and customization options are the main reasons for the higher price bracket. To learn more about the costs of sectional sofas in our Ottawa Kingston market, read our article on how much does a sectional cost.


The cheapest option is a two-piece sectional with a chaise lounge starting at $3,998. The five-pc six-seater is more expensive and can go upward depending on your fabric choices, including iClean fabric colours. From there, the cost increases depending on the different fabric or leather chosen, the number of seats and other options selected.

The Meyer Sectional, as well as its furniture family, is covered by La-Z-Boy’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. This warranty covers the repair or replacement of the frame, spring systems, and mechanism, given that they are quality-crafted and built for long-lasting comfort.


While still quality-crafted, other aspects of the product, such as fabrics, leather, and cushion, are not meant to last a lifetime. However, these parts are still covered by the La-Z-Boy Manufacturer’s Warranty for a given time.


To learn more about the warranty at La-Z-Boy, take a look at the article Are La-Z-Boy Recliners Guaranteed for Life?


To further protect your purchase, La-Z-Boy offers an extended warranty plan at an additional cost.


Customer Reviews


This sofa currently has a 5-star rating in North America. Find out what customers are saying in the following reviews.

Star - Review

Looks and feels amazing.

This whole set is wonderful. I upgraded to the memory foam cushions. Everything is too firm at this point, but I expect it to soften just like my memory foam bed. I especially like being able to put drinks on the arms of the couch, which is something I couldn’t do before with rolled arms. The delivery went smoothly, and the guys were patient with me as I stuck sliders to the bottom of the legs. Looks and feels great. Love it.

Star - Review

I am loving my new couches !!!! They look so well in my new home, so much that I am considering adding a new piece. This is why I chose a sectional to begin with because the pieces were versatile and I was able to adjust and improve what I already had.[sic]

Is the Meyer Sectional Right For You?


Now that you know everything you need to know about the Meyer Sectional, you may or may not have already made the decision of if this is the right sectional for you. If not, let’s take a look at some last minute factors to consider, such as your budget, functionality and overall style.


First, when referring to your budget, the Meyer Sectional is one of the More Affordable Sectionals at La-Z-Boy. Even though this is appealing, it is important to remember that La-Z-Boy is more expensive than other furniture stores on the market. 


Even though that’s the case, our furniture is built to last a long time, thanks to the high-quality materials used to make our furniture. If you’re looking to invest in long-lasting furniture, purchasing the Meyer might be right for you.


If you’re looking for less expensive furniture, check out these Top Canadian Furniture Stores.


In terms of functionality and style, you might enjoy the Meyer because of its simplicity. However, If you’re looking for a reclining sectional, the Meyer isn’t for you. Instead, take a look at our review of the Collins Sectional for alternative sectional choices. 


Michelle also recommends the Meyer sectional to “clients who want a modern, comfortable, relaxed look. It is usually for a room they live in and watch TV. They want to be able to sink into the seat and be able to put their feet up. The Meyer is deep enough to do this.”


If you’re looking for a more traditional styled sectional, the Meyer and Collins stationary sectional are very similar in price and the way they sit. To learn more about their similarities and differences, take a look at our comparison article of the Meyer vs. the Colins.

What's Next?


Michelle says, “the upholstery in your room is your investment piece; it’s a staple in your home that you use every day. It‘s important to put your money into good quality furniture that will stand the test of time and, most importantly, be comfortable for many years.”


The quality, style, and variety La-Z-Boy offers will ensure you find the perfect match for your needs. We are happy to help you navigate all the options and tailor a sectional that is just right for you at any of our Ottawa and Kingston La-Z-Boy locations.
