Review of the La-Z-Boy Trouper Reclining Sectional

With the Trouper Sectional, every seat is the best seat in the house offering maximum comfort for friends and family!


In fact, the Trouper Sectional is a best seller at La-Z-Boy Ottawa and Kingston


Whether you place the Trouper sectional in a living room or basement, the deep bucket seats, rounded edges, and high-performance fabrics are accommodating to children and pets. 


In this article, discover the La-Z-Boy Trouper Reclining Sectional, what makes it a quality piece of furniture for your home, and why it might be a great choice for you!

Unique Features


Turn casual evenings into cozy family nights with our Trouper Sectional. 


Sink into one of the sculpted bucket seats and let the split back cushions provide soft support for your head, neck, and lumbar region. Adjust the independent back and chaise leg rest for personalized reclining comfort, or lean back without raising your feet. The Trouper allows you to find that ‘just right’ position for kicking back to relax.


Perfect for movie nights and more, this sectional has plenty of comforts to go around. Not to mention, inset arm pads and elegant top-stitching make the Trouper easy on the eyes, too. It’s flared arms, wide, squared backs, and intruding seams give it a modern, clean look, seamlessly coordinating with many styles of home decor.

Just like its counterparts, the Trouper Recliner and Trouper Sofa, the sectional shares features true to the Trouper name:

Size & Dimensions


The overall size of the Trouper Sectional can vary depending on the individual pieces and configuration that you choose. 


It is recommended that you take advantage of our design services at La-Z-Boy if you plan to purchase the Trouper Sectional. Before choosing the Trouper, our interior designers will help you determine if you have enough space for this sectional and then will help you choose the right configuration.  


When it comes to dimensions, the Trouper features a bucket seat with a depth of 20.5 inches and a taller back with a height of 41.5 inches


This slightly taller back provides great back and head support, but it is important to note that you may prefer to place this back against a wall, rather than in the middle of the room.


As for who might sit comfortably in this sectional, those who are average to taller in height might enjoy this recliner, specifically those between the heights of 5'4" to 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 [Product Name] is right for your unique body type. To learn more, take a look at our article How to Find the Right Sofa Size For You.

Options & Upgrades


At La-Z-Boy, everything is customizable, including the Trouper Sectional. You can make the sectional uniquely yours with a variety of available customizations and upgrades. Additionally, you can choose the configuration of your Trouper Sectional.

Fabric & Leather Options


With over 800 fabrics and leathers to choose from, customers have a wide variety of colours, textures, and patterns to suit every taste and style.


When choosing fabrics, the Trouper comes in 5 select fabric covers. Customers can choose between slit, tar, marble fawn and canyon. Additionally, there are 3 select leather options available, as well as 8 select faux leather options available.


Select fabrics are specifically chosen to match a particular furniture frame and do not affect the starting price. It's important to remember that choosing any type of leather will result in additional costs for the furniture. You can learn more about La-Z-Boy’s Leather Selection by checking 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.


In addition to the cover options mentioned above, the Trouper is offered in specialty fabrics that offer unique features and benefits…


Stain Resistant Covers

Innovative iClean Technology surrounds each fabric and leather fibre, creating a barrier that repels spills before turning 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 properties surround each cover 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.

Energy Restoration


Restore by Nanobionic® features a mineral-based fabric coating that transforms natural body heat into energy using infrared technology.

Cushion Options


At an additional cost, the Trouper Sectional 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 on whether this upgrade is right for you, view our Motion Furniture Collection catalogue.

Sectional Configuration Options


The configuration of your Trouper Sectional is very important as it will determine the overall shape and size of your sectional. This will also impact how the sectional fits in your room and how it coordinates with your furniture arrangement. 


As you consider the best configuration for your space, take a look at the article Top Considerations for Arranging your Sectional Sofa


The Trouper has three starter configurations to choose from.

Trouper Sectional Review

With over 20 individual Trouper pieces, build upon one of these configurations to create the comfort zone of your dreams.


For more information on the Trouper and possible configurations, take a look at the Trouper Sectional Product Manual.


As this is a unit that comes in pieces, it will be very important to plan out your space. Taking measurements and coming up with a general layout, including how you want your new piece to fit in, is an excellent next step in the decision-making process. Regardless of what kind of furniture you choose, it is always a great idea to sketch it out!


Hint: Sketching does NOT have to be complicated. A simple pen and paper used to identify where your entryway, foot traffic, and focal point(s) are will already set you up for success. This way, you can map out the remaining features around these key points. Clearly identify your wants and needs in order to best choose an item and feel assured in your choice. 


As previously mentioned, to ensure that you choose the ideal Trouper Sectional configuration for your space, consider taking advantage of our complimentary design services.

Power Upgrade with Adjustable Headrest & Lumbar


You can upgrade the Trouper 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.

Trouper Sectional Review

Is the Trouper Sectional Right for You?


This piece would be an ideal fit for taller individuals, as sectionals are generally larger pieces of furniture, but nevertheless, because of the Trouper’s pillow-top experience, it is also completely accommodating for a variety of heights and sizes to be able to get cozy and comfortable. To be more specific, anyone 5’5” to 6’2” is recommended. 


Without a doubt, this is a perfect piece to complete a home theatre set-up, a tv lounge, or any room where comfort and time well-spent are priorities! What’s more? Adding a console option to the layout for your drinks and snacks gives you the ultimate viewing experience. 


If the style of the Trouper sectional isn’t your cup of tea, we have a selection of alternatives. Clients who prefer a more modern and taute sectional may opt for the James Sectional instead.
