Unique Features


The Reese Reclining loveseat and sofa add a touch of comfort and adaptability to your modern interior design. 


Reese Reclining Loveseat


The Reese loveseat is crafted with single-needle topstitched accents on the interior arms, legrest, seat, and back. Reese showcases a pub-style back and plush pillow top arms, creating the perfect spot for unwinding or intimate conversations. 




With an easy-to-use latch release on the outside arms, you can customize the reclining position of both the backs and legrests to suit your comfort needs.


It comes with pillow-top seats and ultra-plush pillow backs. Standard cushions include high-grade foam seat cushions that maintain their comfort and appearance.

Reese Reclining Sofa
The sofa mirrors the style and characteristics of the loveseat while offering the added flexibility of an optional extra cushion. This makes it an ideal choice for those seeking ample seating space to accommodate the entire family or guests.        

Size & Dimensions  


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


The Reese Loveseat and Sofa are designed on a smaller scale, making them an ideal choice for individuals who are shorter to average in height. Specifically, those who are 5'4" and under, or those with a height between 5'7" and up who have a shorter torso and longer legs.


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 Reese 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 & Upgrades

When looking at Reese’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 & Leather Options

With over 800 fabrics and leathers to choose from, customers have a wide variety of colours, textures, and patterns to suit every taste and style.

The Reese has 7 select fabric covers in 2 different textures to compliment its unique frame. You can choose between 5 fabrics under Hallandale, which have a smooth feel, or the other 2 fabrics under Davis, which have a rougher texture.
There is also 1 select leather option available, which includes the colour Stone

Select fabrics are specifically chosen to match a particular furniture frame and do not affect the starting price.

La-Z-Boy offers alternative leather options such as leather match and recycled leather. It's important to remember that choosing any type of leather will result in additional costs for the furniture. You can learn more about La-Z-Boy’s Leather Selection by checking out this article.

Leather options, even select leather, will always increase the overall cost. Ultimately, choosing fabric or leather is up to you if you’re willing to spend more on leather products.

*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 Reese comes in specialty fabrics that offer unique features and benefits…


Stain Resistant


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


Pet Friendly


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


Antimicrobial Fabric


Antimicrobial properties surround each fibre 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.


Cushion Upgrade


At an additional cost, Reese'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.




In terms of cost, the Reese Loveseat and Sofa fall within the mid-price range at La-Z-Boy.


While the cost of the Reese furniture 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.

Is the Reese Loveseat and Sofa Right For You?

Now that you know all the important details about the Reese Reclining Loveseat and Sofa, it's time to ask yourself: is this the perfect fit for your home? Maybe you're still weighing your options - and that's okay!


Here are some factors that can help you decide if the Reese Loveseat or Sofa fits your budget and if you're drawn to its functionality and style.


The Reese is the perfect blend of style and comfort. Customers love that it doesn’t look like a traditional reclining piece. The firmness of the seat and the soft pillow-like arms are ideal for taking an afternoon nap!


However, some customers have noted its chairback might not be high enough for them depending on how tall their torso is. 


In terms of functionality, the manual reclining option can sometimes be challenging to close. For elderly clients and people with diminished arm strength, we would recommend the power recliner option.


If you are looking for a softer reclining seat, we suggest the Trouper reclining sofa. The side arms on the Trouper are a bit lower than the Reese, which is preferred by some. If you’d like to learn more about the Trouper, click here. 


As previously mentioned, the Reese falls within the mid-price range at La-Z-Boy. While these prices are a reflection of our commitment to quality craftsmanship, we understand that they may not fit everyone's budget. 


However, if you're seeking furniture pieces that will last you for years to come, then the one-time investment may be well worth it. With its exceptional durability and comfort, the Reese Loveseat or Sofa is an excellent choice for those who prioritize longevity and comfort in their furniture.
