Est. Reading Time: 10 Mins

When shopping for furniture, people are either looking for something plain and simple or something that is out of the ordinary.

At La-Z-Boy, we are always trying our best to make unique and comfortable furniture pieces that will cater to any living area in any home. After all, it comes as no surprise to many that we are the inventor of the reclining chair.

After all these years, La-Z-Boy continues to make innovative furniture for many to enjoy. One furniture family that proves this is the Soren furniture family, which is a newer addition to La-Z-Boy’s furniture selection.

Trevor Taylor, a design consultant at La-Z-Boy Hunt Club, tells us that the Soren is “very stylish; anyone would be lucky to have this in their home.”

But you might be wondering, what is so special about the Soren furniture family? Is the Soren furniture right for me? Luckily, you’ve come to the right place!

This article will cover everything you need to know about the Soren furniture family, from its unique features, options & upgrades, cost, and if this furniture family is right for you.

Soren Furniture Family (Available Frame Options)

The Soren furniture family comes in many different frame options, which are all listed below.

Soren Rocking Recliner

Soren Rocking Recliner

Firstly, the Soren is offered as a rocking recliner. The Soren Rocking Recliner combines a contemporary style of furniture with both rocking and reclining comfort. 

Simply use the handle on the side of the recliner to raise the legrest to relax comfortably in any position. When not reclining, you are able to rock your Soren in a smooth and graceful motion.

Soren Reclining Loveseat

Soren Reclining Loveseat

The Soren is also available as a Reclining Loveseat.

This loveseat is spacious yet cozy, allowing you to sit individually on each seat cushion but also have the option to curl up next to that special someone. 

Similar to the recliner, individual latches are available for individual reclining comfort.

Soren Reclining Sofa

The Soren also has a sofa furniture frame.

Much like the loveseat, this Reclining Sofa offers individualized comfort for a variety of reclining positions. Instead of two cushions, there are three, making this sofa a family-friendly furniture piece. 

There are two convenient latches on the side of the sofa that allows you to recline.

Soren Sectional

Lastly, the Soren is also available as a Sectional. 

With multiple different configurations to choose from, you can make your sectional any way you want with its separate configuration pieces. Customers have the choice of selecting a reclining loveseat or reclining chaise end piece, or both, as well as an armless chair or armless recliner. 

You can learn more about these pieces in the options and upgrades section of this article.

 

Unique Features

When it comes to unique features, there is a lot to discuss with the Soren.

To begin, the Soren is a modern version of a billowy classic. A billowy classic refers to traditional-looking furniture that has a puffy look to them. Soren has a modernized take on this traditional look because of its bucket seats, which make users sink into the seats when sitting in them.

Soren’s bucket seats are spacious, yet cozy, giving the user ample support in its soft foam-backed cushions.

The Soren also comes with a squared-off arm which Trevor believes “looks more attractive than the big-rolled arms on other furniture pieces.” Trevor also notes that the Soren has a lower arm making it “quite stylish in its look.” 

Sizes & Dimensions

When looking at the Soren initially, some might say it looks big. This is because of its tall stature. 

Trevor notes that the Soren comes with a tall back, meaning taller individuals between the heights of 5’10” - 6’2” will sit comfortably in this furniture family.

The reason why it is considered taller is because of the way the seat sits, according to Trevor. 

“The seat is a little bit taller, but there is also a little more back to it,” he says. Individuals within the ideal height mentioned above will feel their shoulders relax naturally on Soren’s inward-angled arms. 

Shorter individuals might have a harder time sitting comfortably in Soren’s furniture frame. Read more about La-Z-Boy Recliners for Short People by checking out this article.

Options & Upgrades 

When compared to other La-Z-Boy furniture families, Soren has plenty to choose from. Always remember that all options and upgrades will increase the price of your furniture. 

Fabric & Leather Options

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

Trevor reveals that most fabric and leather options offered at La-Z-Boy compliment the Soren nicely, making the Soren furniture family versatile.

There are at least 4 select fabrics to choose from, which do not increase the starting price of your Soren.

When it comes to leather options, there are 2 select cover options. These leather options include double top-stitching, which gives it a cleaner look.

Should you choose to purchase any fabrics or leathers that are not included as select covers, you will be subjected to an additional fee. 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.

In addition to the cover options mentioned above, the Soren 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.

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.

Cushion Upgrade

At an additional cost, Soren’s 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.

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

The Soren rocking recliner, loveseat, and sofa all have the ability to be upgraded to power.

Instead of using a handle or a latch, like on the manual furniture, the power furniture has control panels on the side of each furniture piece, allowing you to recline at the touch of a button.

The rocking and wall recliners have a side-mounted 4-button control panel used to recline in a wide range of multiple positions, while the loveseat and sofa only have two buttons to control the legrests and backs. 

Each power upgrade also has USB ports next to the control panels in order to charge your electronic devices.

Adjustable Headrest & Lumbar Support 

With a power upgrade, the Soren power recliner, power loveseat, and power sofa can be further upgraded to include adjustable headrest support. 

With this, you can adjust the headrest with a power tilt to cradle your head and neck for a perfect reclining experience. 

Adjustable lumbar support is only offered as an added bonus in the Soren power rocking recliner. In this case, the lumbar support can expand or deflate to perfectly match the unique curvature of your lumbar spine. 

What’s more, furniture items with headrest and lumbar support each have 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. 

To learn more about the headrest & lumbar upgrade, check out the Review of La-Z-Boy Power Recliners with the Headrest & Lumbar Feature.

Optional Console (Loveseat)

Soren Loveseat w/ Console

The Soren loveseat, along with an optional add-on to the sectional, has the option to include a console in the middle of the seat.  You can also combine the console with the loveseat’s headrest upgrade if this is something that interests you.

This handy center console adds extra storage to put anything you wish inside of the loveseat. 

Plus, cup holders are included, meaning you can sit back and relax without having to get up to get a drink. Further, the console offers an interior electronic charging input instead of the ports being on the outside of the loveseat.

With the Soren sectional, you can place the console anywhere you wish.

Sectional Furniture Options & Configurations

No matter what configuration you select, the Soren sectional offers the latest in modular design.

Soren’s sectional consists of 6 main furniture pieces that can be used to design a unique configuration that suits your comfort preferences and space. 

  1. Soren Modular Left-Arm Reclining Chaise
  2. Soren Modular Right-Arm Reclining Chaise
  3. Soren Modular Power Left-Arm Reclining Loveseat
  4. Soren Modular Power Right-Arm Reclining Loveseat
  5. Soren Modular Right-Arm Sitting Reclining Loveseat
  6. Soren Armless Chair

Sectionals can be made as big or as small as you wish. End pieces include a left or right-ended chaise or loveseat. You can also place either a corner section or consoles, just like the added option for loveseats. These consoles can be placed anywhere you like. 

Armless chairs and recliners are also available to add to your sectional. You can either add stationary seating or more reclining seats so more people can enjoy a reclining position.

The 8 different sectional configurations below show what your sectional can look like. You can also choose to go with your unique design if you don’t prefer any of these choices.

Cost

In terms of cost, Trevor notes that the Soren furniture products are within the mid-price range at La-Z-Boy. For more information, check out How Much Does a La-Z-Boy Sectional Cost.

While the cost of the Soren furniture is considered quite 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. With this, the investment tends to be worthwhile if you are looking for long-lasting furniture.

Is the Soren Furniture Family Right for You?

Now that you know everything you need to know about the Soren furniture family, the question may still remain if it is the right furniture family for you. To better help make your decision, this section will focus on budgeting, functionality, and style preferences.

To begin, the aforementioned price range is mid-price. This, however, is compared to other La-Z-Boy products, which are typically more expensive than other furniture products on the market.

La-Z-Boy products are an investment, meaning should you want to purchase any of our products, they will be very long-lasting. If you are willing to spend more than expected so that you can have long-lasting furniture, the Soren, as well as other La-Z-Boy products, may be right for you.

Alternatively, if you are seeking temporary furniture at a low cost, the Soren furniture might not be the right investment.

In terms of functionality, the reclining feature of the Soren furniture is ideal for those looking to kick back and relax. If you are looking for stationary furniture, the Soren furniture will not be right for you.

Finally, when it comes to style, Trevor notes that Soren’s seats look more contoured, meaning there is more dimension to this furniture family’s design. 

Those who are looking for something comfortable yet unique will appreciate this look. In contrast, those wanting a piece of furniture with a “quieter style” may want something “less attention-seeking”. 

Trevor also says that the contour look is more prominent on the bucket seats, which look similar to the Rowan. If you want to learn more about the Rowan Recliner, take a look at this article.
