Unique Features of the Trouper Sectional


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.

  • Reclining modular pieces, available in both manual and power functionalities

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.  


Configuration options will be discussed in more depth within the Options & Upgrades section of this article.


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.

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.

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 10 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.

Upholstery/Cover Options


The cover that you choose is crucial in determining the overall look and feel of the Trouper Sectional.


The Trouper Sectional is offered in 5 select fabrics and 2 select leathers, representing the base or best pricing available. These upholstery covers are handpicked by experts and cover the Trouper with standard tonal heavy-gauge single-needle topstitching on the arm, back, footrest, and seat. 


Outdoorsy and rugged, the Troupers i-Northwest fabrics bring the look of the outdoors, inside. It is a printed, warp knit suede, further enhanced by a woven ripple texture. It is a comfortable i-Clean base cloth available in five colours for natural interiors, such as grey, taupe, beige, and charcoal.


In addition to the Trouper select fabric options, La-Z-Boy carries over 800 premium quality fabric and leather covers, available for your choosing at an additional cost.

Cushion Options


The Trouper Sectional offers excellent comfort with standard La-Z-Boy cushions. 


Firmer seat options are available at an additional cost. For more information view our Motion Furniture Collection catalogue and our in-depth Review of La-Z-Boy’s Chair and Sofa Seat Cushions.


Please note that reclining furniture purchased prior to January 2021 had the option to upgrade to airform™️ cushions.  This cushion includes a two-inch layer of premium quality memory foam added on top of the standard foam base within the seat, chaise and leg rest of the unit.

Power Upgrade


With individual pieces that recline, the Trouper Sectional is offered in both manual and power.


The power upgrade allows the reclining pieces of your sectional to recline back with ease at just the touch of a button.


To decide if this upgrade is for you, take a look at the article Manual vs. Power Recliners: A Detailed Comparison of La-Z-Boy Recliners.

Headrest Upgrade


The headrest upgrade is offered on select power pieces for the Trouper sectional. Independently adjust the power-tilt headrest to enjoy customized support of your head and neck. There are an infinite number of viewing angles between 0 and 55 degrees for activities such as reading, conversation, or watching TV.



The Trouper Sectional falls within the high-cost range of sectionals in the market. With this being said, the Trouper Sectional is one of our more affordable options offered at La-Z-Boy within the low-mid price bracket.


At the time this article was published, the cost of the Trouper starts at about $3,969 in its smallest configuration with select fabric. With this, the cost of the Trouper is subject to increase depending on your selections in customization and configuration.

Customer Reviews


The Trouper sectional is highly reviewed by families with young children and pets. The seating arrangement is great for shared relaxation and effortless conversation. Moreover, the durable fabric allows peace of mind as all members of the family enjoy the Trouper’s comfort. 


La-Z-Boy clients also love the Trouper for its traditional appearance without looking too bulky or plush. With this being said, clients who prefer a more modern and taute sectional may opt for the Reese Sectional instead.

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.
