Meyer Sofa & Loveseat at La-Z-Boy



Whether you’re designing a whole new room or adding a sofa or loveseat to existing pieces, Meyer blends right in. It has contemporary straight lines and you can dress it up or dress it down depending on your choice of fabric, pillows, and accessories.


Lina Najia is a design consultant at La-Z-Boy Cyrville. In her many years with the company, she has helped hundreds of customers find their perfect seat. She says the Meyer has a clean, modern look with nice wide arms and a deep seating area. It’s wide enough to lie down on, perfect for napping and cuddling. 


Lina says, “You melt into the sofa when you sit down because of the comfy deep seat.”


In this review, find out why the Meyer Sofa made the cut in the top five-selling sofas in Ottawa and Kingston, and why the Meyer Loveseat is also one of the most comfortable furniture pieces in our selection.

Size & Dimensions


The size and dimensions can tell you a lot about a furniture item. To ensure that the Meyer can fit in your home, it is always important to measure your space.


One size does not fit all when it comes to comfort.  Based on its dimensions, the Meyer is a good fit for most average to taller height individuals. A shorter person may prefer a seat that isn’t as deep such as the Bexley sofa.



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 Meyeris 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
When looking at Meyer's options and upgrades, there are plenty to choose from. It is important to remember that all options and upgrades come at an additional cost, meaning the price of your furniture is subject to increase. 

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.


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.


Cushion Upgrade


At an additional cost, Meyer'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. 


For more information on whether this upgrade is right for you, view our Motion Furniture Collection catalogue and our in-depth Review of La-Z-Boy’s Chair and Sofa Seat Cushions.


*Please note that reclining furniture purchased before 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.

Finish Options


La-Z-Boy is all about customization, and that includes customizing the legs. Meyer can come in one of two finish options:


  • Mahogany Brown (Standard Finish)*
  • Coffee (additional cost)

 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.



Looking for that perfect accent piece? The Meyer 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.



The cost of the Meyer falls within the mid-price range at La-Z-Boy. 


The starting cost of the Meyer Sofa is $2,529, while the cost of the Meyer Loveseat is $2,499.


While the cost of the Meyer 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.


Please note that La-Z-Boy prices listed in this article are subject to change without notice. Information is current as of November 20, 2023. Contact your local Ottawa or Kingston location by phone or in person for up-to-date pricing.



The Meyer is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty assuring the protection of your investment and overall satisfaction. 


The Limited Lifetime Warranty covers the repair or replacement of the frame, given that it’s quality-crafted and built for long-lasting comfort.


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 period of time. 


La-Z-Boy Ottawa/Kingston provides coverage options extending beyond the one-year manufacturer’s warranty. We offer a five-year comprehensive service plan for the labour parts and in-home service.


If the chair covered by this plan becomes damaged or stained and you are not able to remove the stain yourself, La-Z-Boy will cover the cost of cleaning. La-Z-Boy will also provide the parts and services that may be necessary to maintain the proper operation of the chair.

Is the Meyer Sofa & Loveseat Right For You?


When deciding if the Meyer sofa or loveseat is the right choice for you, there are several factors to consider.


Firstly, your budget plays a crucial role as the Meyer falls within the mid-range category. It strikes a balance between affordability and high-quality craftsmanship, making it a favourable option that doesn't break the bank like some higher-end choices at Lazy Boy.


Secondly, the size of the furniture is versatile enough to accommodate average to tall individuals, but it's also worth noting that shorter individuals may find it comfortable as well. To truly determine its suitability, it's recommended to try it out firsthand and assess if it provides the desired level of comfort and support.


Lastly, in terms of style and functionality, the Meyer boasts a modern aesthetic with its clean lines and attractive decorative wood legs. This design element allows it to effortlessly blend into any room, adding a touch of elegance and sophistication.


Ultimately, considering these aspects will help you determine if the Meyer aligns with your budget, size preferences, and desired style, ensuring a harmonious fit in your living space.
