Review of La-Z-Boy’s Casey Recliner: Rocking & Wall Recliner

Est. Reading Time: 7 Mins

When living in a small space, you’ll want to look for furniture that isn’t too bulky. With this in mind, you may have written off recliners because they tend to be big and bulky, taking up a lot of room. 

But what if there was a recliner with a small footprint, perfect for small spaces? Well, at La-Z-Boy, we have many different recliners to choose from, including recliners with smaller frames.

Take the Casey Recliner, for example. Elaina Sollychin, a design consultant at La-Z-Boy Hunt Club, tells us that “the Casey is actually one of our smallest recliners at La-Z-Boy.”

Besides the size of the Casey, what other features might make this recliner the right choice for you? This article will fill you in on everything you need to know about the Casey, including unique features, cost, and customer reviews.

Unique Features

The first thing that we will be discussing is the Casey Recliner’s unique features.

To begin, the Casey combines a contemporary furniture style with classic reclining comfort. The Casey features a streamlined look with modern lines and gently flared and rounded track arms.

It also features a multichambered back, which allows the user to sit properly in the middle of the recliner for optimal head and lumbar support. Simply use the convenient handle on the outside arm to recline effortlessly.

Elaina says that this is good for anyone who may need more support in their lower back area or for their neck.

The Casey Recliner comes in two different recliner types: a rocking recliner and a wall recliner. The rocking recliner allows the user to rock in a smooth and graceful motion, while the wall recliner can be placed mere inches away from a wall while still being able to recline fully.

Size & Dimensions

The size & dimensions of a recliner matter greatly when determining how the furniture will look in a room. It is always good practice to Measure Your Room to ensure that the furniture fits comfortably in your space.

As mentioned before, the Casey is built with a petite scale, meaning this recliner does not take up as much space as other available recliners. Elaina says that the Casey “is perfect for small condos, apartments, and other small spaces in general.”

It is also important that the size and dimensions of the recliner are right for your body type, providing the right amount of support. The Casey is most comfortable for shorter individuals between the heights of 5’4”-5’9”.

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.

Ultimately, we recommend that you visit a La-Z-Boy showroom and take the Casey for a sit test with the help of a La-Z-Boy design consultant. To learn more, check out our article on How to Find a Recliner that is the Best Fit For You?

Leather options, even select leather, will always increase the overall cost. Ultimately, the choice of choosing fabric or leather is up to you if you’re willing to spend extra cash on leather products.

Cushion Upgrade

At an additional cost, Casey’s 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.

Optional Swivel Base

If you're interested, the Casey rocking 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.

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.



Regarding cost, Casey’s modern recliners fall within the low to mid-price range at La-Z-Boy. To learn more, check out the Cost of Recliners at La-Z-Boy

Elaina also adds that the Casey Recliner is one of La-Z-Boy’s more Affordable Recliners.

While the cost of the Casey is quite affordable at La-Z-Boy, it is important to note that La-Z-Boy furniture is considered expensive on 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.
