January 7, 2022

Review Morrison Featured Image

Are you looking for plush and comfortable reclining furniture? The Morrison furniture family may offer exactly what you are looking for!

Mary Lee Smyth, the interior designer at La-Z-Boy Kingson, says the Morrison furniture is “so lovely”. 

Offered as a recliner, reclining loveseat, and reclining sofa, the Morrison furniture has a “pillow look to it”. Mary Lee says “you don’t sit on top of the Morrison furniture, you sit down into it”. 

The Morrison furniture also features beautiful channel stitching that centers you in the middle of the seat, framed by heavily pillowed arms, says Mary Lee.

The Morrison furniture family is a great choice for many, but is it the right choice for you?

Read on for an in-depth review of the Morrison furniture family, including the recliner, loveseat, and sofa.

Morrison Furniture Family (Available Frames)

The Morrison furniture family offers reclining comfort in a variety of shapes and sizes, ideal for both individual and shared enjoyment.

At La-Z-Boy, we offer a Morrison Recliner, a Morrison Reclining Loveseat, and a Morrison Reclining Sofa.

Morrison Recliner

Depending on your preferences, the Morrison is offered as a Rocking Recliner or a Wall Recliner

When you’re not reclining, the Morrison Rocking Recliner acts as a relaxing rocker with a smooth, graceful motion. 

The Morrison Wall Recliner can be placed mere inches from the wall.

Both the rocking and wall recliners are available in either manual or power. In power, the Morrison Recliner offers an adjustable headrest and lumbar upgrade. Learn more about the power and headrest functionality in the options & upgrades section of this article.

Morrison Recliner

Morrison Reclining Loveseat

The Morrison Loveseat is a great choice for couples who want to snuggle up to one another even while reclining. 

New call-to-action

Similar to the recliner, the Morrison Loveseat is offered in both manual and power options. Further, the Morrison Loveseat is offered with a console, and in power, you can upgrade to include an adjustable headrest.

Morrison Loveseat

Morrison Reclining Sofa

The Morrison Reclining Sofa serves comfort for all! With three spacious cushions, the Morrison Sofa is available in manual and power.

Like the Morrison Recliner and loveseat, in power, the Morrison Reclining Sofa can be upgraded to feature an adjustable headrest. 

Morrison Sofa


Unique Features

The Morrison reclining furniture is a family favourite, designed for comfort and durability. It features a tufted back and chaise seats, plus amply padded arms that cradle you in comfort. 

The Morrison furniture offers exceptional comfort with high-grade foam cushions that are constructed to maintain their comfort and appearance over time. Further, the Morrison is filled with double-picked blown fiberfill for improved cushion and shape retention. 

For more detailed information on cushions, take a look at the Review of La-Z-Boy’s Chair and Sofa Seat Cushions

The ultra-plush seats and backs move together or independently for a wide range of reclining positions, with or without raising the legs. 

In the manual, the Morrison Recliner reclines back with the pull of a handle. The manual Morrison Loveseat and Sofa recline back with a dual side latch release.

In power, the Morrison Recliner is powered by a 4-button control panel mounted on the outside arm. The power Morrison Loveseat and Sofa has a 2-button control panel. 

Further, the power Morrison furniture features a built-in USB port for conveniently powering mobile devices. 

Finally, the Morrison can take on a variety of looks as it is customizable in a range of premium-grade fabrics and leathers that are tested to resist wear and fading. 


Sizes & Dimensions

Whether you intend on purchasing the recliner, loveseat, or sofa, it is important that the size of your Morrison product is the right fit for you and your space!

When it comes to size, Mary Lee says the Morrison furniture is an average to large sized frame offered at La-Z-Boy. With this, it is crucial to measure your room in order to ensure that you have enough space for it to fit comfortably.  

New call-to-action

Moreover, it is important to not only consider how the Morrison products will fit into your space but also how they will support your unique body type. Generally speaking, the Morrison furniture is best suited for individuals of an average to tall height, between 5’10” and 6’2”.

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 Morrison furniture family 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

Everything at La-Z-Boy is customizable, including the Morrison furniture family. 

Whether you are purchasing the Morrison Recliner, Loveseat, or Sofa, you have the ability to make it uniquely yours with a variety of options and upgrades.

Fabric & Leather Options

First and foremost, the upholstery cover that you choose for your Morrison product greatly impacts its overall look and feel.

The Morrison furniture is offered in 13 select fabrics and 2 select leathers that are chosen to complement the products unique look and particular frame. Out of the select fabrics, 8 of them are considered faux leather options. Mary Lee says the fabric gives the Morrison a casual cozy look, while in leather, the Morrison resembles sophisticated “theater seating”.

If you want more colour choices, there are Custom Leather or Custom Leather Plus options. However, these do come at an additional cost. To learn more about La-Z-Boy’s Leather Selectioncheck 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.

New call-to-action

In addition to the cover options mentioned above, the Morrison family 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.


Cushion Upgrade

At an additional cost, Morrison family 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 Furniture Collection catalogue.

Finish Options

The Morrison furniture comes with a standard Brown Mahogany wood finish. 

The Morrison manual Rocker Recliner, manual Wall Recliner, and power Rocking Recliner has an optional wood finish called Coffee.

Optional Swivel Base 

If you're interested, the Morrison rocking or wall recliner is available with a swivel base for an extra cost. La-Z-Boy's swivel bases provide a 360-degree rotation, allowing you to easily turn and face any direction.

You can also upgrade your swivel base into a power swivel recliner, which can recline at the touch of a button. The power swivel base, however, only rotates 165 degrees to prevent the power cord from getting tangled within the furniture frame.

To learn more about our Swivel Chair options, check out our list of Swivel Accent Chairs.

Console Upgrade 

As previously mentioned, the Morrison Reclining Loveseat in either manual or power is offered with an optional middle console. Between the seats, a handy center console provides extra armrest space, hidden storage, and two cup holders.

It is important to note that the console adds to the overall size, specifically the length, of the Morrison Loveseat. 

Morrison Console

Further, the manual and power loveseat is available with an optional power console upgrade. The power console, also referred to as the “Power Bundle” includes:

  • Upgrades cupholder(s) to lighted version
  • Adds 2 electrical outlets
  • 2 USB ports to the inside of the storage hub (under flip-top)

Morrison Power Bundle

Power Upgrade with Adjustable Headrest & Lumbar


You can upgrade the Morrison recliners, loveseat and sofa to power.


Instead of using a handle or a latch, like with manual furniture, the power recliner has a wireless remote on the right side of the chair. With this, you can recline at the touch of a button, as well as control the adjustable headrest support.


The adjustable headrest allows you to move the head of the recliner from 0-55 degrees, giving you more range of motion with your reclining positions. 


You can also control the lower lumbar area of your recliner with the wireless remote. In this case, the lumbar support can expand 3 inches out or deflate to perfectly match the unique curvature of your lumbar spine. 


What’s more, the recliners have USB ports next to the control panels to charge your electronic devices, as well as two memory settings that allow you to save any of your favourite relaxing positions. This way, you can easily recline back to the position you favour quickly and accurately. 


If you need help with learning about the controls, check out La-Z-Boy Power Furniture: How to Use the Control Panel & Remote


All power upgrades can be cordless, thanks to our rechargeable battery pack. With this, you can place your power recliners anywhere without worrying about plugging them into an electrical outlet.


To learn more about battery packs, read this Review of the Rechargeable Battery Pack offered at La-Z-Boy.

Handle Options

To add more style to your La-Z-Boy manual recliner, you have the option to customize the length and material of the convenient reclining handle.

At an extra cost, you can opt to elongate the handle if you find it too short for your comfort. Additionally, you can choose from a variety of materials for the handle, including wooden, brushed nickel, or matte black. The chrome handle can also be elongated, matching the wooden one in size.

What’s more, for all left-handed users, you can change your handle from the standard right side to the left. This also comes at an additional cost.




Most products in the Morrison furniture family are a relatively affordable option as they fall within the low price range at La-Z-Boy.

While the cost of the Morrison family 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.

Please note that La-Z-Boy prices listed in this article are subject to change without notice. Information is current as of May 30, 2023. Contact your local Ottawa or Kingston location by phone or in person for up-to-date pricing.

Is the Morrison Furniture Family Right for You?

The Morrison Recliner, Loveseat, and Sofa are all fantastic products, but are they right for you?

Generally speaking, the Morrison furniture is ideal for a client looking for reclining comfort, in plush seating. Given that all the Morrison products recline, these products are suitable for someone who enjoys reclining back on a daily basis. 

More specifically, Mary Lee says the Morrison products are ideal for those who love to recline while they watch TV. Further, someone who spends a lot of time on their feet, would benefit from kicking their legs up in the Morrison furniture. 

Mary Lee says children also love the Morrison, as this furniture family  “invites a snuggle with your kiddos”. 

When it comes to style, the Morrison furniture is great for someone looking for something that prioritizes comfort over sleek style. With a large frame and plush seating, the Morrison furniture resembles  traditional reclining furniture. 

Someone who is seeking modern reclining furniture with a crisp and tailored frame, may not find what they are looking for in the Morrison furniture. Instead, they may prefer one of our Modern Recliners at La-Z-Boy.

Further, the casual style, reclining comfort, and optional console makes the Morrison furniture ideal for a basement. The Morrison is perfect for a partner approved man cave! If you are  looking for something elegant, suited for a formal sitting room, you might opt for a secret recliner, furniture from La-Z-Boy’s duo Collection, or Urban Attitudes Collection

As previously mentioned, the size of the Morrison has an average to large sized frame and is ideal for someone with the height between 5’10” to 6’2”. 

If you are looking for something either smaller or larger, check out the La-Z-Boy Recliners for Small Spaces or the 5 Best La-Z-Boy Recliners for Tall People

Finally, the Morrison furniture falls within the low price range at La-Z-Boy. In turn, the Morrison is a good choice for someone who is looking to be budget friendly. Although the Morrison is a more affordable option at La-Z-Boy, rest assured knowing that it still features high quality materials and construction.
