La-Z-Boy Meyer Sofa: An In-Depth Review



In this review, find out why the Meyer Sofa made the cut in the top five selling sofas in Ottawa and Kingston. It’s our best selling stationary sofa and has been the number two sofa in North America for three years running.


Lina Najia is the assistant manager at La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings and Décor in Kanata. In her four 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.”

New call-to-action


Whether you’re designing a whole new room or adding a sofa 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.

Unique Features


The Meyer is a 3-seat, premier stationary sofa with three deep seat cushions and an extra-wide stance. It features welt detailing, box border seats and backs, updated track arms, and decorative wood legs.


  • The sofa features La-Z-Boy® Premier construction with a quality-crafted frame consisting of kiln-dried hardwood and furniture-grade laminates. It’s engineered for lasting durability.
  • La-Z-Boy® Limited Lifetime Warranty covers all-wood frame parts and springs.
  • It includes two 18″ accent pillows with a fused bag. This design prevents the blown fibre from escaping and allows it to fill the corners to provide a full look and feel.
  • Self-healing zippers fixed effortlessly by zipping and unzipping past the point where it has popped open with usage.
  • Built with tailor-made decking under the seat cushion as a raised print. This non-skid feature helps to keep the seat cushion from sliding forward.
  • Includes standard ComfortCore seat cushions with seven layers of zoned cushion technology for added comfort and firmness. ComfortCore carries a three-year warranty. Upgrade to Comfortcore* gel cushions available on all premier stationary furniture.
  • iClean™ select fabric colours included in the variety of fabrics available at the starting price.

Options and Upgrades


Take some time to investigate your options so that your new sofa 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 sofa for your home. The Meyer has over 900 hundred cover options so you can custom-create a look that’s uniquely yours. Choose from the latest colours, patterns and textures. There are options to suit every style and budget.


Select iClean fabric colours included in the variety of fabrics available. These fabrics offer a barrier of protection that repels spills before they turn into stains. 


If you have pets, you might consider taking advantage of our Pet-Friendly fabric that has a high level of cleanability and durability, including the iClean technology.


Another specialty fabric option at La-Z-Boy is the antimicrobial fabric. This fabric protects against mould, mildew, and odour-causing bacteria


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 sofa 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.

Seat Cushions


At an additional cost, firmer seat options are available, plus you can choose to upgrade both the seat and back cushions.
Please note that furniture purchased prior to January 2021 had the option to upgrade to ComfortCore® GEL seat cushions. This cushion has seven layers of comfort technology that includes gel-infused memory foam that provides exceptional support as it conforms to your body. 

Wood Finish


The Meyer 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.



Looking for that perfect accent piece? The Meyer 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.
