The Pinnacle of reclining furniture! Though probably not the name Pinnacle came from at La-Z-Boy, this furniture family is definitely a force to be reckoned with. 

While one of the more versatile and unique furniture pieces among the La-Z-Boy family, it stands above the rest as one of the best-selling recliners.

This furniture family comes in a rocking reclining loveseat, which is only unique to three furniture families at La-Z-Boy, including the Pinnacle.

But you might also wonder, is the Pinnacle furniture family right for you? To help answer this question, let’s take a deeper look at the Pinnacle to help you decide.

Pinnacle Furniture Family (Available Frame Options)

Before deep diving into the Pinnacle furniture family, let’s see what furniture frame options are offered!

Pinnacle Recliner

Pinnacle ReclinerIf you’re looking for an individual reclining experience, the Pinnacle Recliner is a great choice. Using the convenient handle located on the outside arm, users can recline with ease. Left-handed users can request for their handle to be on the left side.

The Pinnacle Recliner is available as:

  • a Rocking Recliner; 
  • a Wall Recliner;
  • and a Gliding Recliner  

When not in a reclining position, the rocking and gliding recliner can rock and glide in a smooth and graceful movement that will keep you feeling relaxed. The Pinnacle Wall Recliner can be placed mere inches away from a wall while still being able to recline fully.

To learn more about the differences between a Rocking and Wall Recliner, as well as the differences between a Rocking and Gliding Recliner, take a look at these articles.

Pinnacle Reclining Loveseat

Pinnacle Loveseat

The Pinnacle Reclining Loveseat offers the same individualized comfort as the Pinnacle recliner but with another cushion. Enjoy this loveseat with either a friend, family member or with that special someone. 

This loveseat is unique as it can be either a rocking or wall recliner. The regular wall reclining loveseat can be placed mere inches away from a wall like the Pinnacle Wall Recliner. The rocker recliner can rock in a smooth and graceful motion individually

The Pinnacle Rocking Loveseat can be made by combining the Left-Arm and Right-Arm Sitting Rocking Recliners. The only other furniture families that offer a rocking arrangement like this are the Rowan and Finley, which you can learn more about with their review articles.

Pinnacle Reclining Sofa

Pinnacle Sofa

Lastly, the Pinnacle Reclining Sofa offers a third seat cushion so that you can recline and relax with company. 

This sofa is also a wall recliner, meaning it can be placed mere inches away from a wall while still being able to recline. It is important to note that the middle seat does not recline. 

 

Unique Features

Now that we’re familiar with the different products let’s dive deeper into the Pinnacle furniture family by looking at its unique features.

Firstly, upon looking at this reclining family, you’ll notice its puffiness. Once you sink into this recliner, you’ll feel the plushy pillow on your back doing what it is supposed to do… relax you!

The Pinnacle combines a relaxed style with padded rolled arms and channelled back padding for added comfort. This chair is designed to support the body and create a continuous zone of comfort, making it ideal for individuals who may experience back pain.

In addition, the rolled arms on the Pinnacle have a modern design that sets them apart from traditional rolled arms, which are often bulkier. These arms' subtle, understated design ensures that they complement any room without dominating it.

 

Size & Dimensions

The size and dimensions can tell you a lot about a furniture piece. Before purchasing new furniture, it is always important to Measure Your Room properly.

Depending on the furniture product, the Pinnacle does not need too much space if it is considered a wall recliner. In fact, since most of these furniture pieces are considered wall reclining, this can apply to most of Pinnacle’s furniture. To recline fully, a wall recliner needs at least 4”- 6” of space.

However, this does not mean that these recliners are perfect for small spaces. Because the Pinnacle is 33” wide, it is bulky like other recliners but not too bulky that it’ll overcrowd the space.

Further, the Pinnacle does not sit at a tall or short scale. Because of this, most users can sit comfortably, especially those between the heights of 5’4” to 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 always taking a sit test to see if the Pinnacle suits 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 compared to other La-Z-Boy furniture families, Pinnacle has plenty of customization options to choose from. Remember that with your selection of options and upgrades, the cost of the Pinnacle furniture will increase.  

Fabric & Leather Options

La-Z-Boy has over 800 fabrics and leathers to choose from, making the experience of personalizing your furniture seemingly endless.

When it comes to choosing select fabrics, the Pinnacle comes in 2 different fabric textures, with a total of 10 select fabric covers. These fabric covers do not increase the price of the Pinnacle furniture.

Regarding leather options, there are 2 select covers, which include a dune and cedar colour

Along with the leather selection, a leather match and recycled leather for Alternative Leather Options are also available. All leather options, including the 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.

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 Pinnacle is offered in specialty fabrics with 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 Fabric

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

Antimicrobial Covers

Antimicrobial properties surround each fibre to protect against mould, mildew, and odour-causing bacteria.

Performance

Superior stain and fade resistance properties make fabrics easy to clean and incredibly durable.

Eco-Friendly

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 Upgrade

At an additional cost, the cushions of the Pinnacle furniture can be upgraded to include firmer cushioning, meaning over time, your furniture will remember your unique figure and enhance the comfort of your seat. 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, view our Motion Furniture Collection catalogue.

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.

Optional Swivel Base

If you're interested, the Pinnacle 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.

You can also upgrade your swivel base into a power swivel recliner, which can recline at the touch of a button. The power swivel base, however, only rotates 165 degrees to prevent the power cord from getting tangled within the furniture frame.

To learn more about our Swivel Chair options, check out our list of Swivel Accent Chairs.

Power Upgrade with Adjustable Headrest

You can upgrade the Pinnacle to power. 

Unlike manual furniture that uses a handle or latch, power recliners come with a control panel or a wireless remote for easy reclining at the touch of a button. You can also adjust the headrest support with this convenient feature.

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.

What’s more, the recliners have USB ports next to the control panels to charge your electronic devices and 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. 

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.

Adjustable Lumbar Support

The Pinnacle can also be upgraded to include adjustable lumbar support for an additional cost when choosing the power option.

Like the headrest feature, you can 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. 

To help you decide of the headrest & lumbar upgrade is right for you, check out the Review of La-Z-Boy Power Recliners with the Headrest & Lumbar Feature.

Power Lift Recliner Upgrade

A101k_PINNACLE_1PL-512_D180654One upgrade that sets the Pinnacle apart from other furniture families is the ability to upgrade to a power lift recliner.

The Pinnacle Platinum Power Lift Recliner features a handy remote that can help raise the recliner up or down from off the ground. The remote can be used to raise or lower the recliner, as well as adjust it to different reclining positions, making it easier for you to get in and out of the chair.

The seat and back move together in one smooth motion, eliminating gaps and providing full body support in all reclined positions. The power lift recliner also features a power tilt and independent back and leg rest motion.

The Pinnacle Lift Recliner can be further upgraded to include headrest and lumbar support as well as heat & massage. To learn more about the Pinnacle Power Lift Recliner, take a look at this review article.

It is important to note that lift recliners only come in fabric and not leather. To learn more about lift recliners, check out the article What to Expect When Shopping at La-Z-Boy for Elderly People or People with Mobility Issues.

Heat & Massage Upgrade (Lift Recliner Only)

The Pinnacle Power Lift Recliner can be upgraded to include Heat & Massage.

Customers can enjoy this incredibly comfortable lift recliner with two high & low heat settings and six motor-massage settings for their back and thighs. 

PowerReclineXR® is also included in this upgrade, which lets the user experience full reclining comfort in any position, thanks to an independently operating back and leg rest.

To learn more, check out a Review of the Heat & Massage Upgrade at La-Z-Boy

Console Upgrade (Loveseat Only)

Pinnacle Loveseat w/ Console

The Pinnacle Rocking and Wall Loveseats both have the option to include a console in the middle of the seat. This handy center console adds extra storage

Cup holders are also included, meaning you can sit back and relax without getting up to grab a drink. Further, the console offers an interior electronic charging input instead of the ports outside the loveseat.

If the console is something that interests you, you can also add Power, Headrest and Lumbar upgrades to enhance your Pinnacle Loveseat into a truly comfortable experience.

 

Cost

In terms of cost, the Pinnacle furniture products fall within the mid-price range at La-Z-Boy.

While the individual recliner is a reasonable entry-level price, the loveseat and sofa can be expensive for some, especially when adding power.

While the cost of the Pinnacle furniture is considered standard at La-Z-Boy, it is important to note that La-Z-Boy furniture is considered more expensive on the market. This cost is reflected in our products' quality of materials and craftsmanship. With this, the investment tends to be worthwhile if you are looking for long-lasting furniture.

Is the Pinnacle Furniture Family Right For You?

Now that you have an in-depth knowledge of the Pinnacle and what to expect, you might be ready to decide if this is the right furniture for you. If you’re still indecisive, here are some last-minute factors to consider.

Based on your budget, the functionality of the furniture and the overall style, you can determine if the Pinnacle is potentially the right furniture family for you.

Starting with the budget, the Pinnacle is considered a standard price for La-Z-Boy furniture. Unfortunately, pricing at La-Z-Boy might not be right for everyone since we make our furniture with high-quality materials, which puts a higher price tag than other furniture stores.

Even though La-Z-Boy might have more expensive furniture, our furniture products are meant to last a long time, meaning you won’t have to worry about finding a replacement a couple of years from now. 

If you want to invest in your furniture and save money down the road, the Pinnacle furniture family might be right for you.

Regarding functionality, The Pinnacle is an average seat that can be a versatile recliner. If you’re looking for a recliner with optimal comfort and support, the Pinnacle might be right.

However, reclining furniture may not be for everyone due to the size of the furniture and how it may complement your unique body type. Since the Pinnacle is puffy on the back and slim on the arms, this furniture family might be recommended for larger spaces and those with thinner arms.

Those who do not have an average height might risk feeling less comfortable when sitting on the Pinnacle. If you’re interested in Recliners for Short or Tall People, take a look at these articles.

Finally, when looking at the style of the Pinnacle, those who love a transitional look will benefit from this furniture family. As mentioned before, the Pinnacle does not fit just one specific furniture style. It has modern and traditional features, making it the perfect transitional style blend.

If you’re looking for more specific or niche furniture that is not broad, the Pinnacle might not be right for you. Instead, take a look at our article Traditional vs Contemporary, for ideas on what furniture could be right for you.

What's Next?

Now that you have more knowledge of the Pinnacle Furniture Family, why not discover this furniture family in person?

You can start shopping by visiting one of our local showrooms located in Ottawa or Kingston. You can also schedule a visit online before coming in.
