Laurel Furniture Family (Available Frame Options)

The Laurel family offers a sophisticated style, yet a relaxed personality. At La-Z-Boy, we offer a stationary Laurel Sofa, Chair & a Half, and Ottoman, ideal for a complete living room arrangement.

Laurel Sofa

The stationary Laurel Sofa loves to welcome with an eclectic look. Button details gently rolled arms, and tapered wood legs add to its uniqueness. 

New call-to-action

The Laurel Sofa is part of the 2-seater sofa collection at La-Z-Boy. A 2-seater sofa is no different from a regular sofa other than the fact that it features two long seat cushions instead of three shorter seat cushions.


Laurel Chair & a Half

The Laurel Chair & a Half has an understated look that complements a laid-back lifestyle. Simple elements like petite rolled arms, welt trim, decorative wood legs, and button detail on the back make this roomy piece a welcome addition to a living room, den, or nursery. 

Enjoyed by many La-Z-Boy clients, the Laurel Chair & a Half is one of the Best Selling Chair & a Half’s at La-Z-Boy Ottawa & Kingston.


Laurel Ottoman

The Laurel Ottoman is perfectly paired with the Laurel Chair & a Half. Not only is it attractive with its button details, it’s extremely comfortable with luxurious cushioning.

The Laurel Ottoman is highly acclaimed as one of the Best Selling Ottomans at La-Z-Boy Ottawa & Kingston.

Unique Features

As previously mentioned, the Laurel furniture family is sophisticated, yet relaxed

As stationary furniture, the Laurel family is manufactured with premier construction. Premier furniture takes La-Z-Boy construction to the next level, including quality-crafted frames padded to enhance the style’s design lines.


Sizes & Dimensions

Whether you intend on purchasing the Laurel sofa, chair & a half, ottoman, or all three pieces, it is important that the size of your Laurel product is the right fit for you and your space!

When it comes to size, Racha says the Laurel is one of the medium size sofas that can fit comfortably in most spaces

With a general idea of the Laurel’s size, it is still crucial to measure your room in order to ensure that it will fit comfortably in your space.

Moreover, it is important to consider how the Laurel furniture will support your unique body type. The depth of Laurel seat cushions is medium while the back is low. When seated in an upright position, the Laurel furniture is most comfortable and supportive for average-height individuals, around 5'5" to 5’11”, says Racha. 

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 Laurel furniture family is right for your unique body type. To learn more, take a look at our article How to Find the Right Sofa Size For You.

As for leather, no leather covers are available for the Laurel. If you’re wondering about the Leather Selection at La-Z-Boy, check out this article.

*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 Laurel is offered in specialty fabrics that offer unique features and benefits…

Stain Resistant Covers

Innovative iClean technology surrounds each fabric fiber, creating a barrier that repels spills before they turn 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 Covers

Antimicrobial properties surround each fiber to protect against mold, mildew, and odor-causing bacteria. 


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

Eco Friendly

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.

Cushion Upgrade

Raise the bar on comfort even higher by upgrading the seat cushions of your Laurel furniture. 

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. 

Pillow Options

The Laurel Chair & a Half and Sofa come with pillows, which means you can customize those as well. You can accessorize your pillows by adding an accent colour to them, as well as contrasting welt, cording or fringe. What's more, there are also 6 select accent pillow options to choose from, which will not increase the price of your furniture.

If you want to get specific, you can also request feather padding for your pillows instead of the usual foam padding.

Contrasting Welt Trim

Welt trim provides a tailored look to seat cushions. You can opt for contrasting welt trim on your Laurel furniture to add some personality and decorative detail.

Finish Options

Transform the look of your Laurel furniture by uniquely customizing the wood finish on the decorative legs. The standard wood finish is Coffee but you can also choose from the following options:

  • Coffee (Base Price)
  • Brown Mahogany (Additional Cost)
  • Graphite (Additional Cost)



The products in the Laurel furniture family fall within the mid-price range on the market, while falling within the low to the mid-price range offered at La-Z-Boy.

While the cost of the Laurel 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. 

With this, the investment tends to be worthwhile if you are looking for long-lasting furniture.

Is the Laurel Furniture Family Right For You?

The Laurel sofa, chair & a half, and ottoman are all fantastic products, but are they right for you?

As furniture within the low to the mid-price range offered at La-Z-Boy, the Laurel furniture is a great choice for those looking to furnish their living space on a budget. 

Further, the Laurel furniture is ideal for clients with a small to average-sized space as it is comfortable without being too big or bulky. 

Given that the Laurel furniture is stationary with a structured frame, it is well-suited for a formal living room or den, compared to a basement or lounging space. 

Finally, when it comes to style, the Laurel furniture is a great choice for someone looking for contemporary furniture in their home. While each piece can be purchased separately, the sofa, chair & a half, and ottoman make a beautifully coordinated living room arrangement.
