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

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.


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.

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. 

This is why we highly recommend coming in-store and taking a sit test to determine if the Soren is right for your unique 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, 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, as well as 4 select faux leather options.

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.

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 Soren is offered in specialty fabrics that offer unique features and benefits …

Stain Resistant

Innovative iClean Technology surrounds each cover, 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

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, 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. 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 Recliner Furniture Collection or the Motion Furniture Collection catalogue.

Optional Swivel Base

If you're interested, the Soren 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.

Additionally, you can change the wood finish colour of the swivel base from the standard brown mahogany to a coffee colour.

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

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.

Power Upgrade with Adjustable Headrest

You can upgrade the Soren furniture family 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 Soren rocking and wall recliners 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.


Optional Console (Loveseat)

Soren Loveseat w/ Console

The Soren loveseat 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.



In terms of cost, Trevor notes that the Soren furniture products are within the mid-price range at La-Z-Boy.

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.
