Piper Furniture Family (Available Frame Options)
The Piper furniture family comes in two main furniture frames, which are a loveseat and a sofa.
The first option is the Piper Loveseat, which is stylish yet sophisticated. You can easily share this furniture piece with that special someone for relaxing and snuggling.
The other furniture frame is the Piper Sofa, which has three cushions in its design, making it great for shared comfort.
This Piper Sofa can be upgraded to transform into a sofa bed or sofa with a chaise, but we will dive into that later in the article (see Options & Upgrades section).
While the Piper sofa and loveseat vary in size, they do offer the same unique features.
The Piper furniture family offers a sleek and streamlined style that fits just about any decor from ultra-modern to comfortably casual.
Piper’s simple and smooth seats offer long-lasting comfort and support, while the elegant modern arms and decorative wood legs bring just a touch of an upscale vibe.
The reason why people gravitate towards this furniture family is likely because of its modern design. The legs are more exposed than other furniture frames, which catches the attention of many individuals.
The back of the Piper is cushiony and soft but has a firmer back, creating a tight back appearance. This is perfect for anyone looking for a clean look within their furniture pieces. It also features minimal lines within the design, accentuating the clean look.
Size & Dimensions
It is important to consider the size of the Piper furniture in your home. Measuring your room along with the dimensions of the Piper will ensure that your desired furniture piece will fit perfectly in your space.
Racha explains that the size and dimensions of the Piper are average for a furniture frame. With this, the Piper will fit nicely in most average-sized spaces.
It is also important to consider the size of the Piper in comparison to your unique height and body type.
Given that the Piper features a tall back and somewhat deep seat cushions, it is most comfortable for those between the height of 5’10” to 6’2”.
“Anyone shorter than [5’10”] may not be able to reach the headrest at the top, but will still feel comfortable because the back cushions are firm,” says Racha. With that being said, we have a range of more petite La-Z-Boy furniture that is ideal for short individuals, including a list of the Best Recliners for Short People.
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 that you visit a La-Z-Boy showroom and take the Piper for a sit test, with the help of a La-Z-Boy design consultant. In the meantime, you may find helpful pointers in the article How to Find the Right Sofa Size For You?

Options & Upgrades

It is important to remember that by selecting any options and upgrades in this section, the cost of any Piper product is subject to increase.
Fabric & Leather Options
At La-Z-Boy, the option to choose your own fabric is seemingly endless. In fact, La-Z-Boy has over 800 fabrics and leathers available to personalize your furniture items, including the Piper. Keep in mind that many of these fabric and leather options are considered upgrades and come at an additional cost.
Should you want to maintain the base price of your Piper, La-Z-Boy offers 4 select fabrics to choose from. Leather options are also available, but they will increase the price of your furniture.
Moreover, leather options, beyond the select leather selection, 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 Piper is also offered in the following specialty fabrics that have unique features and benefits …
Stain Resistant Fabric
Innovative iClean Technology surrounds each fabric fibre, creating a barrier that repels spills before turning into stains.
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 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.
Restore by Nanobionic® features a mineral-based fabric coating that transforms natural body heat into energy using infrared technology.
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.
Queen Sleep Sofa Upgrade
The Piper Sofa comes in many different configurations, one being a queen sleep sofa. With the Piper Supreme-Comfort Queen Sleep Sofa, you can turn any living room into a guest room.
Along with the unique features of the original sofa, the Piper queen sleeper offers overnight guests a queen-size supreme comfort quilted innerspring mattress that measures 5.5” thick.
The sleeper mattresses can be upgraded to include either a Slumber Air mattress, which is an inflatable air mattress for extra adjustability, or a firmer mattress that provides a more solid sleeping surface, similar to the firm cushion upgrade.
Chaise & Matching Ottoman
Piper’s sofa also has the option to include either a matching ottoman, a chaise seat or both. The chaise cushion, which can be offered on either the left or right side of the couch, offers even more space to relax. You can also choose to place the ottoman wherever you like, offering an extra seat or a place to kick up your legs.
If you decide to upgrade to the Piper Queen Sleep Sofa, mentioned above, you can further enhance this selection by adding a chaise piece as well.
The Piper Loveseat and Sofa 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.
Lastly, Piper’s wood leg finish can be customized as well. Any Piper furniture item can come in one of four finish options:
- Mahogany (Base Price)
- Coffee (Additional Cost)
- Graphite (Additional Cost)
- Driftwood (Additional Cost)
In terms of cost, Piper’s products fall within the mid to high price range at La-Z-Boy.
While the cost of the Piper furniture is considered quite standard at La-Z-Boy, it is important to note that La-Z-Boy furniture is considered expensive in the market. This cost is reflected in the quality of materials and craftsmanship of our products. With this, the investment tends to be worthwhile if you are looking for long-lasting furniture.

Is the Piper Furniture Family Right For You?
Now that you know everything you need to know about the Piper furniture family, is it the right furniture for you? When making this decision, you will want to consider Piper's cost, functionality, and style.
As previously mentioned, the Piper furniture is high-quality with a mid to high price range. This type of product is ideal for anyone looking to make a significant investment in long-lasting furniture. Alternatively, the cost of the Piper furniture may not be ideal for those looking for temporary furniture on a limited budget.
In terms of functionality, piper’s furniture is stationary, meaning those who are looking for reclining furniture may not enjoy this furniture family.
Alternatively, the matching ottoman may satisfy those looking for a reclining option if they enjoy the style of the Piper. However, reclining with an ottoman is not the same as reclining with a recliner.
Lastly, these products are considered modern furniture items, making the Piper furniture ideal for homeowners seeking a classic, yet updated look.
On the contrary, those who prefer more traditional furniture styles, may not like the look of the Piper.
