Draper Leather Furniture Family (Available Frame Options)

Before we tackle the Draper furniture family in depth, let’s familiarize ourselves with all of Draper’s furniture frames first.

Draper Leather Stationary Chair

Firstly, the Draper chair is a stationary leather chair with a comfortable seat.

Unique Features

Now that we’re familiar with the different furniture frames within the Draper family let’s discuss Draper’s unique features.

As mentioned before, the Draper is a contemporary and modern furniture family that exudes both modern angles and a sophisticated look of fine leather. These two features blend beautifully together and create an overall neat and tidy look to its appearance.

The Draper also features a T-shaped cushion design and box-border seats, which adds to the angular approach given to this furniture family. Its sleek inverted track arms add a contemporary look to this inviting lounging spot, which resembles the key-shaped arms on the Bexley Funiture Family. 

Jenna says that the back cushions of the Draper offer extra lumbar support, with its channelled upper cushion surrounding the lower back cushion, almost like an upside-down U.

She also explains that she's seen people not only put this furniture family in living rooms, but home offices. "It definitely  has a formal look to it, and the fact that its leather selections are neutral, it adds a certain sophistication for a comfortable seating experience."


Sizes & Dimensions

As always, when adding a new furniture item to your home, it is vital to Measure Your Space.

Given the size, the Draper is known to be a little bit bulkier than other furniture families at La-Z-Boy. Because of this, a smaller space may not be suitable for this furniture to shine. 

To learn more about Small Space Furniture, look at this article.

What's more, it is evident that the Draper is meant to seat those of average height. Because of this, anyone with an average height will be best complemented by the Draper.

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 always coming in for a sit test to see if the Draper is comfortable for your unique body type. To learn more, take a look at How to Find the Right Sofa for Your Size.

Options & Upgrades

All upholstery furniture at La-Z-Boy is customizable. Give the Draper furniture family your own personal touch by choosing from various options and upgrades.

It is important to remember that by selecting any options and upgrades in this section, the cost of any Draper product is subject to increase.

Leather Options

At La-Z-Boy, choosing your fabric or leather is seemingly endless. In fact, La-Z-Boy has over 800 covers available to personalize your furniture items.

One thing that makes the Draper unique from other furniture families offered at La-Z-Boy is that it only comes in leather. Given that the Draper family is only available in leather, this does limit the number of cover options.

New call-to-action

Draper’s select leather options are selected to compliment its unique frame. These include 2 leather colours, pewter and oak, offered at the starting price point. Both covers, according to Jenna, offer a timeless style that will last a long time in your home.

If you want more colour choices, there are Custom Leather or Custom Leather Plus options. These, however, do come at an additional cost.

Custom Leather Program

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.

Some of the leather covers mentioned above have unique performance and health & wellness features and benefits …

Stain Resistant Cover

Innovative iClean Technology protects the surface of the leather to repel spills before they turn into stains.

Crypton Leather

Similar to high-performance fabrics at La-Z-Boy, our Crypton leathers repels dust, dirt and stains. It also protects against harmful UV damage and replenishes natural oils.

Antimicrobial Leather

As with antimicrobial fabrics at La-Z-Boy, antimicrobial leathers help protect the surface from mould, mildew, and odour-causing bacteria to appear.


Cushion Upgrade

At an additional cost, firmer seat options are available, plus you can choose to upgrade both the seat and back cushions. 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, please see our stationary furniture collection catalogue.

Sectional Furniture Options & Configurations

As mentioned before, the newest addition to the Draper Furniture Family is the Sectional. This sectional consists of 6 module pieces that can be used to design a unique configuration that suits your comfort preferences and space. 

With these available module pieces, your sectional can be made as big or as small as you wish.

End piece includes a left or right arm sitting loveseat or bumper chaise. The bumper chaise is a unique furniture frame at La-Z-Boy that includes the long end of the chaise on the side of the seat instead of the front, creating a contemporary look. This piece helps differentiate the Draper from other sectionals at La-Z-Boy, since it is the only sectional that offers this option.

You can also place a corner section to create the famous L-shape for which sectionals are known. What's more, there is also an armless chair you can add to make your sectional longer.

As you select your sectional configuration, take a look at our article on How to Arrange a Sectional Sofa: Top Considerations.

Finish Options

You can customize any Draper furniture’s wood leg finish which comes in one of three colours:

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



In terms of cost, Jenna notes that Draper furniture products fall within the mid-high price range at La-Z-Boy

This higher price tag is because it only comes in leather which is more expensive than fabric selections. Therefore you may be spending more than expected on Draper furniture. 

While the cost of the Draper furniture is considered above average at La-Z-Boy, it is also important to note that La-Z-Boy furniture is considered more expensive than mid-market furniture costs. Our products’ quality of materials and craftsmanship dictate this cost.

To further protect your purchase, La-Z-Boy Ottawa & Kingston offers an extended warranty plan at an additional cost. To learn more about the Extended Warranty Plan and if it’s right for you, take a look at this article.



Is the Draper Furniture Family Right For You?

Even though you know more about the Draper Furniture Family, you might still wonder if this furniture family is the right one for you. To help you determine if the Draper is right for you, let’s take a look at your budget, the functionality of the furniture, and the overall style.

Firstly, the price of the Draper may take up a more substantial portion of your furniture budget compared to other options but don’t let this frighten you!

Although La-Z-Boy is considered more expensive than other retailers, our furniture is made with high-quality materials intended to provide longevity. Also, given it is leather furniture which outlasts fabric 5 to 1, the Draper will last longer than other furniture families in alternative upholstery.

New call-to-action

If you’re looking for long-lasting products that will not easily break or wear over time, this furniture family might be right for you.

When discussing functionality, this stationary furniture family is more suitable for larger spaces.

However, if you are shorter and have a smaller space, the Draper might not be right for you. To learn more about furniture for shorter individuals, take a look at our Best Recliners for Short People.

Although you can kick back in a Draper seat and elevate your feet with the support of the matching ottoman, this position won't match the experience provided by reclining furniture. To learn more about the comparison between Stationary vs Reclining Furniture, take a look at this article.

Lastly, the furniture style also matters when purchasing new pieces to be incorporated into your home. The Draper carries both a contemporary and modern vibe; therefore, it will complement either style. Check out these articles to learn more about Contemporary Sofas or Modern Sofas at La-Z-Boy.

If you’re looking for something with less of a bold appearance or more traditional furniture, the Draper family might not be right for you.
