Review of the Mackenzie Furniture Family



In this review, find out why the Talbot Sofa is the third best selling sofa in Ottawa and Kingston.


Sandra El Nounou is a design consultant at La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings and Décor in Nepean. She shared that during her three years with the company, the Talbot is her top-selling sofa. 


With a background in interior design, Sandra particularly loves that the Talbot sofa blends easily with any décor. She explains, “the beauty of the Talbot is that it has a nice transitional look.” It has graceful curves and is smaller in scale, making it not too bulky. This couch is ideal for apartments or compact living spaces.

Unique Features


  • Padded outside arms and backs give the sofa frame a fuller, more rounded appeal.
  • Sofa features La-Z-Boy® Premier construction with a quality-crafted frame consisting of kiln-dried hardwood and furniture-grade laminates. It is engineered for lasting durability.
  • La-Z-Boy® Limited Lifetime Warranty covers all-wood frame parts and springs.
  • Fused bag pillows allow the blown fibre to fill the corners to provide a full look and feel and prevent escape.
  • Self-healing zippers can be fixed effortlessly by zipping and unzipping past the point of misaligned teeth or where it has popped open with usage.
  • Tailor-made decking applied under the seat cushion as a raised print.  This non-skid feature helps to keep the seat cushion from sliding forward.
  • ComfortCore seat cushions have seven layers with four different foam densities to provide the best comfort and support level for various areas of the seat. ComfortCore carries a three-year warranty.
  • Five iClean™ select fabric colours available at the starting price. These fabrics offer a barrier of protection that repels spills before they turn into stains. Simply blot most spills with a paper towel.

Talbot Stationary Sofa Dimensions


One size does not fit all when it comes to comfort. Based on its dimensions, the Talbot sofa is a good fit for most petite to average height individuals.  A taller person may prefer a bit of a deeper seat.  

New call-to-action

Sandra also notes this couch has a great arm height at 25 inches.  At this height, the sofa arm would be parallel or aligned with most side tables.

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 Talbot 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 Talbot 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.
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. 

Wood Finish 


Give your sofa legs a completely custom look with a different wood finish. Match your current décor or add a striking contrast. The Talbot sofa comes with a standard coffee finish.  Options can include alternate leg designs for a one-of-a-kind look. There are two optional finishes: brown mahogany and graphite.

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 Talbot has over 50 different colour and pattern choices for trim.

Nail Head Trim 


Commonly used in more traditional pieces, nail head trim is making a comeback. It accentuates the design lines of sofas, adding a handcrafted look that is both rustic and contemporary.  The Talbot has brass, platinum and black nail head colour options.



Looking for that perfect accent piece? The Talbot sofa comes with matching pillows.  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.
