- Is the Alexandria Sofa & Loveseat Right For You?
As previously mentioned, the Alexandria comes as a loveseat and a sofa, which both share many unique features.
Alexandria isn’t afraid to make a statement–its tight back boasts button tufting in a diamond pattern that’s both distinctive and unique.
An updated take on the classic Chesterfield silhouette, Alexandria features extra cushioning on its sloped rolled arms and is finished with slim, tapered wood legs. There is also a third middle leg featured on the Alexandria Sofa, adding to its traditional appearance.
Premier Construction also ensures the quality and comfort of this timeless piece for years to come.
Mary Lee calls this style of furniture “tuxedo style furniture,” meaning the back and the arms of the frame are the same lengths. She also compliments the button tufting on the back seats, giving it a “traditional and opulent look.”
Sizes & Dimensions
Mary Lee says the loveseat and sofa are not as large as other furniture families showcased at La-Z-Boy. “Because Alexandria is stationary, it doesn’t need bulky coverings to hide any reclining mechanisms,” she says.
Although it is not the largest furniture family at La-Z-Boy, it is not the smallest. The Alexandria should be considered average-sized. This means that the Alexandria may not always fit in a small space.
Ultimately, to ensure that the Alexandria can fit in your space, be sure to Measure Your Room.
Because the Alexandria has a small to average-sized scale, these traditional furniture items can easily fit anyone between the heights of 5’4” - 5’9”. Mary Lee says, “you can fit taller people who are over 6 feet, but it is more recommended for average size seating.”
We also always recommend coming in for a sit test to see if the Alexandria is comfortable for your body type. To learn more, take a look at How to Find a Recliner That is The Best Fit For You.

Options & Upgrades
When looking at Alexandria’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 Alexandria furniture is subject to increase.
Power Options (Not Available)
The Alexandria is a more traditional styled furniture piece at La-Z-Boy, which makes it one of the few furniture families that do not offer a power upgrade. This is because the Alexandria furniture is stationary, meaning there is no need for a power option.
The Alexandria family may not be the right choice if you want reclining power furniture. You can learn more about comparing Manual vs. Power Recliners with our review article.
La-Z-Boy has over 800 fabrics and leathers to choose from, making the experience of personalizing your furniture seemingly endless.
It is important to note that the Alexandria only comes in fabric, not leather. If you are looking for something closer to leather, Alexandria does come in recycled leather.
Mary Lee reveals that the Alexandria is offered in 4 different select fabric options. Select fabrics are chosen to compliment Alexandria’s specific furniture frame. In turn, these fabric options do not increase the base price of your Alexandria.
You will be subjected to an additional fee if you choose to purchase any fabrics or leathers that are not included as a select cover. If you are undecided between fabric or leather, check out this comparison article.
In addition to the cover options mentioned above, the Alexandria is offered in specialty fabrics that offer unique features and benefits …
Stain Resistant Fabric
Innovative iClean Technology surrounds each fabric fibre, creating a barrier that repels spills before turning into stains.
Tested and formulated to withstand the scratches and wear that a pet can cause to ensure a durable and easily washable 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.
At an additional cost, firmer seat options are available. With this, you can choose to upgrade both the seat and back 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.
Given that the Alexandria is easily complemented by pillows, there are many options to choose from. Mary Lee says customers can choose from regular pillow styles to contrasting welt trim, cording accents, and feather pillows.
Finally, Alexandria’s wood leg finish can be customized as well. Any Alexandria Loveseat or Sofa comes in one of four finish options:
- Mahogany (Base Price)
- Coffee (Additional Cost)
- Graphite (Additional Cost)
- Driftwood (Additional Cost)
In terms of cost, Mary Lee notes that the Alexandria furniture products fall within the low-mid price range at La-Z-Boy. This is because of the larger cushions made within the design.
While the cost of the Alexandria furniture is considered mostly 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.

Star reviews can only tell you so much. Here are what customers are honestly saying about the Alexandria Loveseat & Sofa…
Is the Alexandria Sofa & Loveseat Right For You?
Now that you know everything you need to know about the Alexandria Loveseat & Sofa, is this the right furniture for you? To better answer this question, we must look at budget, functionality and style.
Firstly, regarding your personal budget, Alexandria is a more affordable product at La-Z-Boy. However, as mentioned before, La-Z-Boy furniture is more expansive than other furniture stores on the market.
La-Z-Boy is an investment, so if you’re looking for long-lasting furniture, purchasing the Alexandria might be worth your while. In contrast, if you are looking for an affordable piece of furniture for temporary use, you might consider shopping elsewhere.
In terms of functionality, the Alexandria is versatile for most living areas, given its average-sized frame. You can even place them in open concept rooms as well.
Finally, in terms of style, Mary Lee also says that the Alexandria is perfect for older couples who are “looking to spice things up in their living room.” As mentioned before, Alexandria is an eye-catching piece because of its overall appearance.
Further, if you’re creating an elegant Parisian style apartment, this furniture is the right choice for you. The button-tufted back seats and the slim wood legs make it an elegant and opulent look. However, this furniture is not meant to be played around with.
As other furniture products at La-Z-Boy are meant for making cushion forts or jumping on plush sofa cushions, the Alexandria is a delicate piece and should be treated as such.
“The best way to use this formal piece of furniture is by sitting upright and spend long hours watching TV, read, or conversate about philosophical ideas,” says Mary Lee. If you have small children with lots of energy, the Alexandria might not be right for you.
