In-Depth Review of the La-Z-Boy Reegan High Leg Swivel Chair

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? 


New call-to-action


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.


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

Unique Features


Reegan effortlessly combines casual and contemporary design, making it a perfect fit for any decor.


Supported by tall tapered wood legs, its 360-degree swivel base offers a sense of freedom and mobility. The flared arms beautifully frame Reegan's box border seat, while the soft pillow back enhances its tailored lines.


The addition of welt trim adds a touch of sophistication. With Premier Construction and ComfortCore® cushions as standard features, Reegan ensures enduring quality and unmatched comfort. This versatile piece seamlessly blends style and functionality.


Size & Dimensions


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


When incorporating a swivel chair into your space, it is important to ensure sufficient room for movement. Take care to position tables in a way that avoids obstruction of the swivel motion by the corners.


When you compare it to other popular La-Z-Boy accent chairs, the Reegan is suitable for an average-sized person.


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 Reegan 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.

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. 


Fabric & Leather Options


La-Z-Boy has over 800 covers to choose from, making the experience of personalizing your furniture seemingly endless.


When selecting the fabric or leather for your Reegan, the cost will vary based on the grade you choose. Each grade offers different qualities and characteristics, allowing you to find the perfect balance between your desired style and budget.

*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.


Alongside our extensive range of covers, the Reegan is also available in specialty fabrics that offer unique features and benefits…

Stain Resistant Covers


Innovative iClean Technology surrounds each fabric and leather fibre, creating a barrier that repels spills before turning into stains.

Pet-Friendly Fabric


Tested and formulated to withstand the scratches and wear that a pet can cause to ensure a durable and easily washable fabric.

Antimicrobial Covers


Antimicrobial properties surround each cover to protect against mould, mildew, and odour-causing bacteria.



Superior stain and fade resistance properties make fabrics easy to clean and incredibly durable.



Conserve Sustainable Fabrics are soft, durable and made from recycled water bottles.

Energy Restoration


Restore by Nanobionic® features a mineral-based fabric coating that transforms natural body heat into energy using infrared technology.

Stain Resistant Cover


Innovative iClean Technology protects the surface of the leather to repel spills before they turn into stains.

Crypton Leather


Similar to high-performance fabrics at La-Z-Boy, our Crypton leathers repel dust, dirt and stains. It also protects against harmful UV damage and replenishes natural oils.


Antimicrobial Fabric


As with antimicrobial fabrics at La-Z-Boy, antimicrobial leathers help protect the surface from mould, mildew, and odour-causing bacteria to appear.

Cushion Upgrade


At an additional cost, the Reegan 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, view our Motion Collection catalogue and our in-depth Review of La-Z-Boy’s Chair and Sofa Seat Cushions.


Please note that reclining furniture purchased prior to 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.

Reegan High Leg Swivel Chair


Contrasting Welt Trim


Welt trim provides a tailored look to Reegan seat cushions. Especially if your Reegan is meant to be an accent chair, you may consider opting for contrasting welt trim to add some personality and decorative detail.


Finish Options


La-Z-Boy is all about customization, including customizing the legs of your recliner. The legs can come in one of two finish options:


  1. Brown Mahogany (Standard Finish)
  2. Coffee (Additional Cost)*
  3. Graphite (Additional Cost)*
  4. Driftwood (Additional Cost)*



The Reegan falls within the mid-high price range. 


Currently, Reegan's base price starts at $1,599. This does not include any additional options and upgrades. 


While the cost of the Reegan is considered 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.


Please note that La-Z-Boy prices listed in this article are subject to change without notice. Information is current as of May 18, 2023. Contact your local Ottawa or Kingston location by phone or in person for up-to-date pricing.



The Reegan is covered by La-Z-Boy’s Limited Lifetime Warranty, which covers the repair or replacement of the frame, spring systems, and the mechanism, given that they are quality-crafted and built for long-lasting comfort.


While still quality-crafted, 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 time.


To learn more about the warranty at La-Z-Boy, take a look at the article Are La-Z-Boy Recliners Guaranteed for Life?


To further protect your purchase, La-Z-Boy offers an extended warranty plan at an additional cost.

The Reegan chair currently has a 4.8-star rating in North America. Find out what customers are saying in the following reviews...

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.

Star - Review

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)
