Do you or a loved one suffer from mobility issues? Does a stylish recliner with the power to get you sitting, standing or fully reclining at a touch of a button appeal to you? If so, then the La-Z-Boy Miller Bronze Power Lift Recliner, one of the top 5 best selling lift chairs, can provide much-needed support and comfort. 


Designed for petite users, the Miller lift recliner features a smaller seat scale and a simple, classic style.  Don’t let its bronze designation or compact frame fool you. It has a heavy-duty steel foundation and quality cushion construction to provide exceptional comfort and support. 


As inventors of the reclining chair back in 1927, you can rest easy knowing your power lift recliner possesses 90 years of innovative design experience. They provide the smoothest, most secure motion and offer unmatched comfort in every position at the touch of a button.


When shopping for a lift recliner, it is essential to determine which one is best for you.  At La-Z-Boy Ottawa and Kingston, we believe it is necessary to get fitted for your perfect seat.  


We’ve helped hundreds of customers find a lift recliner that not only meets their needs, style and budget but their physical dimensions.



Unique Features


At the touch of a button, power lift recliners use motors to make it easy to change your chair’s tilt so that you can go from a standing position to fully reclined without effort. They are a comfortable and practical solution for people as they age. Moreover, ideal if you require assistance getting in and out of a chair due to physical limitations caused by illness, injuries or surgeries.


La-Z-Boy offers four series of power lift chairs: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Each series offers different features, including seat scale, weight capacity, clearance from a wall, and options.


The Miller lift recliner is part of the bronze series of power lift chairs. Lift chairs in this series are designed for smaller users and have the added benefit of not needing much clearance from the wall to be fully reclined or in the lift position

Furthermore, bronze lift recliners have an uncovered, exposed base, unlike the box in box construction that you will find in the gold and platinum series.

Petite rolled arms and a solid foam back allow this chair to blend effortlessly with existing furniture pieces.


Best of all, the Miller lift recliner can be placed just 2 inches from a wall, so it won’t overwhelm your room or take up too much floor space. 


Press a button on the convenient hand-held remote to get in or out, or fully recline. The heavy-duty tubular steel base gives Miller a robust, solid foundation.

Size & Dimensions 


Designed for smaller users, the Miller Bronze Power Lift Recliner features a shorter seat height and a one-piece chaise for continuous comfort. 


The Miller is the shortest of all lift chairs at 39.5 inches. Also, it has an equally smaller 31- inch body width, so it is a good choice if you are designing a small space or considering a recliner for a seniors’ residence.

The Miller seat also provides excellent support for individuals under 5"4'.  It does, however, have a slightly wider seat with an extra inch of wiggle room.


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 Miller is right for your unique body type. To learn more, take a look at our article How to Find a Recliner That is The Best Fit For You.

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.


If you are bound to your lift chair while recovering from a surgery or are simply more comfortable lounging, you’ll inevitably be consuming food while reclining. Things can get messy when spills happens but La-Z-Boy  also offers a wide selection of speciality fabrics...

Customer Reviews


The Miller lift recliner currently has a 4.6-star rating in North America. Find out what customers are saying in the following reviews.


One Cozy Chair
This recliner was purchased to help my 88 yr young dad who was having leg issues and back pain. But as it turns out the whole family loves this chair. It is not an overstuffed or bulky chair. Its streamlined design would fit any decor. It looks great and is extremely comfortable, the fabric feels luxurious. The reclining and lift options are not only wonderful features, but the two-button remote make it a no-brainer and easy to use. Try it, you’ll love it!

Makes my life so much easier
It is exactly what I needed! Due to age and health issues I was unable to sit with my legs elevated (Doctors orders) in my old recliner because I couldn’t move it on my own. Now I’m enjoying my living room and large TV daily thanks to this mechanical lift. It looks great too!

Best small lift chair
This is a beautiful finely made chair that looks great and functions like it should. It’s hard to find a small lift chair that fits well in an apartment and is small enough for a 5’2″” female . This was the only one I saw and I’m really happy with it.
