November 13, 2020
PLEASE NOTE: The Reegan Chair was formerly part of the Urban Attitudes Collection which has now been discontinued. Any reference to the features and benefits of this collection is no longer available.
Do you love the idea of a swivel chair where you can be a part of all the action in your living space? You may be wondering, which swivel chair would work best in my home? Have you considered La-Z-Boy’s Reegan high leg swivel chair?
This article will discuss the Reegan’s features and benefits, what our customers like and dislike about it, and who it fits best. We will also compare it to other popular La-Z-Boy accent chairs that made our list of the top five best selling accent chairs in Ottawa and Kingston.
Mary Lee Smyth is an interior designer in Kingston. Since starting at La-Z-Boy in 2017, she’s helped hundreds of clients find their perfect swivel chair and is our go-to expert for this review. (She’s also the model in the photos;)
First, a word about the benefits of a swivel chair: you can place a swivel chair in various rooms of your home, such as the living room, bedroom, or study. If you upholster it with trendy fabric, it becomes an accent piece; it can also add functionality. Many people love to sit in their swivel chair, look at the passersby out the window and then swivel to watch television or join the conversation.

3. Options and Upgrades
Take some time to investigate your options so that your new chair doesn’t just suit your home; it fits your way of living. The La-Z-Boy Reegan swivel chair has various customization options available.
Upholstery / Cover Options
Your choice of fabric and leather upholstery is a pivotal decision when selecting a chair for your home. The Reegan accepts a myriad of fabrics and leathers so that this chair can be a colour counterpoint for the room. Choose from a wide variety of colours, patterns and textures. Life can be hard on furniture, so our fabrics are wear-tested for quality and durability, ensuring they stay beautiful for years to come.
Our performance fabrics have a luxurious feel and are available in 100’s of colours and patterns. They include pet friendly and stain-resistant iClean™ fabrics that repel spills before they turn into stains.
The Reegan has a subset of covers available in “conserve” fabric. Soft, durable, and sustainable “conserve” fabric made out of recycled water bottles. We use as many as 50 recycled water bottles to create this eco-friendly material. They come in a wide range of colours and patterns to complement your room.
High-quality polyurethane foam gives your chair cushions increased softness and support while providing exceptional durability.
At an additional cost, firmer seat options are available, plus you can choose to upgrade both the seat and back cushions. For more information please see our stationary furniture collection catalogue and our in-depth Review of La-Z-Boy’s Chair and Sofa Seat 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.
4. Determining the right fit
Any swivel chair is going to need a bit of Movement Room. Watch table placement against the side so that the corners don’t interfere with the swivel motion. I like to place a round table with a swivel chair. There are no corners to catch, and the round shape echoes the movement of the chair.
When you compare it to other popular La-Z-Boy accent chairs, the Reegan is suitable for an average-sized person. Mary Lee who’s 5’4″ and 125 lbs with a 30″ inseam demonstrates:
The Allegra accent chair is a more traditional style with the ability to sit a smaller to average-sized person.
in this photo, Mary Lee is sitting in the Allegra. Her feet are about 1 inch off the floor. "I like the chair, but it wouldn't be comfy after a few hours. It would be perfect for someone a bit taller."
Sitting in the Reegan, her feet touch the floor. The swivel style accent chair has the ability to sit a smaller to average-sized person.
A larger or taller person would be more comfortable in the Bellevue chair. The Bellevue has the same clean lines, same mid-century modern look but with a slightly wider stance and a somewhat deeper back.
Mary Lee sitting in the Bellevue, which is too deep for her. “I would have to sit with my legs folded up under me for this to be comfy.”
Amazing how differently each chair fits!
Some folks are not a fan of Reegan’s angled leg but like the chair’s seating quality. For people wishing to have a more traditional leg, we point out the Allegra and the Allegra swivel.
5. How much does the Reegan High leg swivel chair cost?
The Reegan chair price comes in at the mid to high range for swivel chairs available in Ontario furniture stores. The quality of materials used and the customization of fabric options are the main reasons for the higher price range.
Currently, we have the Reegan chair starting at $1,629. Shop the Reegan high-leg swivel chair.
The cost of the Reegan is subject to increase based on your choice of customizations and upgrades.

Just what we needed, two swivel chairs that are truly comfortable so we can watch tv but that are extension of living area so everyone can be a part of a larger group! [sic] Maureen V.
Great for multi-room use
I have a long living room that is split into two seating areas. This chair is perfect for a guest to turn to talk to both areas or to turn further to watch tv. It’s absolutely cozy and comfortable. I’m a petite person so I can easily curl up on it.
My only complaint is that the cushion seems to look a little wonky in the front after sitting on it. You can see the imprint of my legs. The La-z-Boy rep told me to let the cushion get worn in a bit. [sic] Mario B.
So comfortable. Love the look. Exactly what I was going for! Becca & Ryan S. (See their photo below)
The Reegan’s versatility has allowed it to gain popularity as it’s ultimately become the number two best selling accent chair in Ottawa & Kingston after the Allegra chair!
A throwback piece to the late ’50s/60’s the Reegan high leg swivel chair has a retro or transitional style with a smaller footprint.
Mary Lee says: “I love the smaller footprint of this swivel chair. It is delightfully mid-Century modern with the swept arms and angled legs.”
It’s also one of our most modestly priced accent chairs for your living room.
A supportive chair that allows one to move depending on where the conversation is happening.
As inventors of the reclining chair back in 1927, you can rest easy knowing your Reegan chair possesses 90 years of innovative design experience. Alone or in a pair, people love the Reegan, it’s an excellent addition to any room.
