The La-Z-Boy Pinnacle Recliner: In-Depth Review

November 8, 2019

Sometimes referred to as the Pinnacle reclina rocker recliner, the Pinnacle recliner is our most versatile reclining chair.

Peter Crepin is the manager at La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings & Decor on Campeau drive in Kanata. During his many years working for La-Z-Boy Ottawa Kingston, he and his design consultants have helped fit hundreds of customers to their perfect recliner

Peter says the Pinnacle is perfect for those who like to rest and relax. It will fit almost any adult, whether you’re 5.4′ or 6.2′, and is arguably one of La-Z-Boy’s most comfortable recliners. Peter even has the Pinnacle recliner in his own home and says it’s his favourite chair!

In this review, find out some of the reasons why the Pinnacle Recliner is one of Ottawa and Kingston’s best selling recliners.

1. Features unique to the pinnacle recliner:

Size and comfort are the main reason for its popularity and it’s comfortable without overpowering the room. It has rolled arms and continuous leg support. The Pinnacle was one of the very first chairs constructed with no gap in between the recliner seat and the leg rest.


2. Dimensions: Pinnacle Recliner


The Pinnacle has a relatively small scale while still being able to accommodate people in a broad range of sizes. Thirty-three inches across from outside arm to outside arm with a tall back 41 inches.

3. Different chair styles in the Pinnacle:


Pinnacle Rocker Recliner “reclina rocka”


Reclines up and down using a hand wand; it has a three-position footrest and ratchet system to recline back. You can and add a swivel base to move left and right and up and down.

Pinnacle Wall Recliner


Also has three positions but no ratchet system so it won’t go back as far. The advantage of the wall away is that the chair can be much closer to the wall, about 8” as opposed to one foot. Comes in handy in a smaller space with less wiggle room.

The disadvantage of the wall away is that it won’t recline as far back as the rocker recliner.  The wall away is available in manual or power.

5. How much does it cost?

The cost of the Pinnacle manual rocker recliner starts at $1, 189 and is priced in the mid-level range of recliners. See how much a recliner costs.

Power recliners will cost several hundred dollars more than traditional manual recliners. This is primarily due to the motor and mechanisms included in the construction.  

Each rocking recliner style with headrest and lumbar is priced independently.  They range from $2,000 to $3000 and upwards depending on included options.

Your choice of fabric or leather upholstery is a crucial decision and can significantly affect the price of your recliner.  With over 900 hundred cover options, you can custom-create a look that’s uniquely yours.

6. Is the Pinnacle Recliner Right for Me?

As mentioned above, this is a very comfortable recliner and is suitable for most body types, however,  some people don’t like the traditional “Lazy Boy”  puffy look. They may be looking for something more contemporary. That’s why it’s essential to ‘test drive’ your chair before you buy to ensure you find your perfect fit.  

If a sleeker style is critical, check out our best-selling contemporary recliners such as the Rowan or Forum.

7. Customer Reviews:


What some clients are saying about the Pinnacle recliner:

This recliner currently has a 4.7/5 star rating in North America:

Star - Review

“We have had two Pinnacle wall-always in genuine leather for five years. Sit in them every day and they are still perfect. Bought this latest one in the rocker style in fabric. My wife says it is the most comfortable chair she has ever sat in. That is high praise “ [sic] Anthony C

Star - Review

I just came home from the hospital with a broken back, six broken ribs, a bruised lung, and broken collarbone. I sent my mother out to buy a recliner for my convalescence and she ordered this one. It’s amazing—incredibly comfortable but also able to stand me on my feet until my core muscles heal. It gives massages at several different speeds/styles and has a heat function. The remote control also allows independent parts to operate for maximum comfort…..back, leg rest, etc. This recliner is well worth every penny, especially to a person with as many broken bones as I have. It’s been a Godsend! [sic] Denu220

Star Review

“Had it about two months, so far well made and it does what it’s supposed to. Kinda slow-moving, but I knew that when I bought it.” [sic] Pavel N
