Paxton Furniture Family (Available Frame Options)

The Paxton furniture family comes in four different furniture frames, which are all listed below…

Paxton Chair & a Half

The Paxton Chair & a Half offers casual and relaxed seating that invites you to kick back and get cozy. This chair & a half allows you to enjoy individualized seating, but also offers enough room to share the seat with a small child or baby. 

With that, the chair & a half is a  good addition to a Nursery, which you can learn more about by checking out this article.

Paxton Chair & a Half

Paxton Loveseat

The Paxton Loveseat is a little wider than the Paxton Chair & a Half. The extra seat allows you to sit with that special someone. 

Paxton LoveseatPaxton Sofa

The Paxton Sofa has a unique design to its cushions. Instead of having three individual cushions, like other La-Z-Boy sofas, The Paxton only has two wide cushions that meet in the middle of the frame.

This sofa invites a welcoming seating experience for all friends and family.

Paxton Sectional

Lastly, the Paxton Sectional is a comfortably casual furniture item, making it ideal for entertaining guests or relaxing on your own. 

Paxton’s sectional has an array of modules to choose from, which lets you customize the perfect configuration for any size room.

If you want to learn more in-depth about the Paxton Sectional, take a look at this article.

Paxton Ottoman

Finally, you can pair any aforementioned Paxton product with the matching Paxton Ottoman.

Whether it’s used as a footrest, extra seating, or a cocktail table, the Paxton Ottoman can enhance your living room.

Unique Features

The Paxton has many different unique features from other furniture families. Paxton’s clean lines and crisp welt trim give it a neat and structured silhouette. 

It features deep, T-shaped seat cushions, low-profile wood legs, and chamber-filled back cushions that maintain their shape and support over time. 

Patented ComfortCore® cushions provide just the right amount of support for a long or short sit. For more information, take a look at the Review of La-Z-Boy’s Chair & Sofa Seat Cushions.

As mentioned before, the Paxton has wide arms and deep seats, meaning the Paxton is wider than other La-Z-Boy furniture items. This is the reason why the Paxton furniture family features a chair & a half instead of a regular-sized chair.

Marianne mentions the cushion shapes extending from the sides of the couch, stating “the cushions pour out of furniture frame giving it a welcoming feel to your living room.”


Size & Dimensions

As mentioned before, The Paxton furniture family features wide cushions, giving it a larger frame in general. Because of this, the Paxton Sofa and Sectional may not be easy to place in every room. 

Further, with this larger scale, the Paxton furniture comfortably seats those between the heights of 6’3” and up. This is because of its deeper seats that make the user sink into the furniture frame. 

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. 

We recommend always coming in for a sit test to see if the Paxton 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 Paxton’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 Paxton furniture is subject to increase. 

Fabric Options

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 Paxton only comes in fabric and not leather.

Marianne reveals that the Paxton comes in 6 different select fabric options. Select fabrics are chosen to compliment Paxton’s specific furniture frame. In turn, these fabric options do not increase the base price of your Paxton. 

Should you choose to purchase any fabric that is not included as a select cover, you will be subjected to an additional fee. 

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 Paxton 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.

Pet-Friendly Fabric

Tested and formulated to withstand the scratches and wear that a pet can cause to ensure a durable and easily washable fabric.

Antimicrobial 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.

Energy Restoration

Sectional Furniture Options & Configurations

Paxton’s sectional consists of 8 furniture pieces that can be used to design a unique configuration that suits your comfort preferences and space. With these available module pieces, your Paxton sectional can be made as big or as small as you wish.

  1. Paxton Left-Arm Sitting Chair
  2. Paxton Right-Arm Sitting Chair
  3. Paxton Armless Chair
  4. Paxton Left-Arm Sitting Chaise
  5. Paxton Right-Arm Sitting Chaise
  6. Paxton Left-Arm Sitting Cuddler
  7. Paxton Right-Arm Sitting Cuddler
  8. Paxton 90 Degree Corner

The end piece includes a left or right-ended chair, chaise, or cuddlers. You can also place either a 90-degree corner section to create the famous L-shape that sectionals are known for. Armless stationary chairs are also available to add to your sectional. 

There are 5 different basic sectional configurations below to show what your sectional can look like. You can also choose to go with your own unique design if you don’t prefer any of these choices.


Configuration Shapes

Marianne notes that, should you want to add a cuddler to your sectional, this type of configuration would be perfect for bigger rooms, since that modular seat is the biggest option.

Pillow Options

The Paxton Sofa, Loveseat and Chair & a Half come with pillows, which means you can customize those as well. You can accessorize your pillows by adding an accent colour to them, as well as contrasting welt, cording or fringe.

If you want to get specific, you can also request feather padding for your pillows instead of the usual foam padding.

Contrasting Welt Trim

Customers have the option to choose a contrasting welt trim to accentuate the design of the furniture. Furthermore, patterned welt trim options are available, which can enhance the aesthetics of the furniture frame.

Finish Options

Finally, Paxton’s wood leg finish can be customized as well. Any Paxton furniture item comes in one of four finish options:

  1. Mahogany (Base Price)
  2. Coffee (Additional Cost)
  3. Graphite (Additional Cost)
  4. Driftwood (Additional Cost)

Paxton Wood Legs


In terms of cost, Marianne notes that the Paxton furniture products fall within the mid-high price range at La-Z-Boy. This is because of the larger cushions made within the design.

While the cost of the Paxton 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.

Is the Paxton Furniture Family Right For You?

Now that you know everything you need to know about the Paxton furniture family, is this the right furniture family for you? To answer this question, we must look over budgeting, functionality, and style.

As mentioned before, the price of a Paxton furniture item is higher than other furniture families at La-Z-Boy. If you are looking for a long-lasting piece of furniture, the Paxton might be worth the investment. 

New call-to-action

Alternatively, if you are seeking temporary furniture at a low cost, the cost of the Paxton furniture family might not be right for you.

In terms of functionality, the Paxton furniture family is stationary, meaning those who are seeking reclining furniture, may not like this furniture frame. 

With that being said, the Paxton Ottoman can be used to kick your feet up, similar to a reclining seat. If you are looking for a reclining furniture family with a modern look, check out the Talladega Furniture Family.

Moreover, keep in mind that the Paxton has a larger frame, meaning it won’t fit comfortably in all spaces. If you have a large space, the Paxton might fill your room nicely. However, if you live in a smaller space, like an apartment, the Paxton might be too big, and thus not right for you. 

Finally, in terms of style, the Paxton is modern, meaning those who are younger or like to stay on-trend, might enjoy the look of the Paxton, according to Marianne. If you prefer a more traditional look, consider the Alani Sectional.

The Paxton and the Alani are similar in style, if you want to read more about the Alani vs. the Paxton, check out this comparison article.
