La-Z-Boy Meyer Sectional: An In-Depth Review
May 12, 2020
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?
In this review, find out why the Meyer sectional made the cut in our five best selling sectionals list for Ottawa and Kingston. It’s tied with the Trouper for La-Z-Boy’s #1 sectional in North America!
Michelle MacLellan is an in-home designer at the La-Z-Boy Home Furnishing and Décor store in Kanata. She’s been in the furniture business for over 30 years and worked for other prominent furniture stores such as Vanleeuwen and Luxe Home interiors. During her last two years at La-Z-Boy, she’s helped hundreds of clients find their perfect seat!
She says, “the Meyer first became available as a sofa, loveseat, chair and ottoman. Due to the Meyer sofa quickly becoming a bestseller, it was introduced as a sectional about a year and a half ago.”
1. Unique Features
The Meyer sectional delivers simple style elements like track arms, decorative wood legs, and welt trim to complement any room. A casual sectional with deep, wide seats 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. Modules with arms include one standard size accent pillow.
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.

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 (pictured above) starting at $2620.00. The five pc, six-seater starts at $5090.00 and can go upwards depending on your fabric choices, including iClean fabric colours. From there, the cost increases depending on different fabric or leather chosen, number of seats and other options selected.
4. Options and Upgrades
Take some time to investigate your options so that your new sectional doesn’t just suit your home; it suits your way of living. The Meyer furniture set has various customization options available.
Upholstery / Cover Options
Your choice of fabric or leather upholstery is a pivotal decision when selecting a sectional for your home. The Meyer has over 900 hundred cover options including dozens of iClean fabric colours. Choose from the latest colours, patterns and textures. IClean fabrics are performance fabrics that surround each fibre, creating a barrier of protection that repels spills before they turn into stains.
A subset of covers is available in “conserve” fabric. Soft, durable, and sustainable “conserve” fabric is made out of recycled water bottles. We use as many as 110 recycled water bottles to create a sectional with this eco-friendly material.
As with conventional furniture fabrics, conserve covers are wear-tested for safety, quality and durability. So, they stay comfortable and beautiful for years after delivery. They come in a wide range of colours and patterns to complement your room.
Raise your comfort level by upgrading to ComfortCore® GEL seat cushions for your Meyer sofa. This cushion has seven layers of comfort technology that includes gel-infused memory foam. It provides exceptional support as it conforms to your body.
The Meyer sectional sofa comes with a standard mahogany finish.
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.
Are you looking for that perfect accent piece? The Meyer sectional sofa comes with matching cushions. But if you are going for a bolder look, you can opt to get them in a contrasting cover that will set your furniture apart. Also, you can choose to add either a cord or fringe pillow edge treatment.
Add down fill feathers and upgrade your pillows to FeatherLite Comfort.
6. Determining the right fit:
If you’re looking for a reclining sectional, the Meyer isn’t for you, but you may want to check out the Trouper or the Devon.
Michelle 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.”
She also recommends the Meyer for rooms that have an open concept because it doesn’t have to be against a wall. “The back is not too high, so it looks good from the back.”
The Meyer and Collins stationary sectional are very similar in price and the way they sit. The real difference is in the shape of the arms. The Meyer has a track arm, whereas the Collins has a rounded arm.

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.
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]
Looks good, nice and firm, craftsmanship pretty good[sic] Karin F.
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.”
She tells her clients “the track arm in the Meyer is timeless, simple, and it never goes out of style. It’s a lot like your “little Black dress” in that you can update it with a few new accessories. (new accent pillows, blanket, artwork…)”
Plush box border seat, and a choice of comfy configurations, make Meyer a must for relaxing. Stretch out your legs on a roomy chaise, or cozy up in the corner cuddler. Perfectly proportioned, our Meyer sectional brings great comfort to rooms of any size.
The quality, style and variety that La-Z-Boy has to offer 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 one of our Ottawa and Kingston La-Z-Boy locations.
