Review of the Mackenzie Furniture Family


The Talbot Chair is casual comfort at its finest! The Talbot Stationary Chair is clean and informal. 


Lina Naija, an experienced Design Consultant at the La-Z-Boy Kanata store, says that the Talbot is one of La-Z-Boy’s most stylish chairs. In fact, the chair can be customized with contrasting welt trim to give off a really sharp look. 


More specifically, Lina says that the Talbot chair is “stunning in leather”. 


It is not too big, nor too small. While it is considered to be one of the smaller chairs offered at La-Z-Boy, Lina says that a taller person can still comfortably sink into the large bucket seat of the chair. No matter your size, “the Talbot really hugs you when you sit in it”.


Lina likes the Talbot chair because it offers a classic look while also appearing modern and up-to-date. You can see this in the rolled arms of the chair. According to Lina, the arms have a classic round look without looking old-fashioned. Instead, they give off “modern and sleek lines”. 


Not only does Lina love the Talbot Chair, but most La-Z-Boy clients also agree. The Talbot Chair is one of the Top 5 Best Selling Accent Chairs at La-Z-Boy showrooms in Ottawa & Kingston.


Are you looking for a comfortable and stylish accent chair to complete a room? The Talbot Chair may be exactly what you are looking for.

Most Comfortable Room in Our Home


I am overjoyed with our new Talbot Chairs. I made an appointment and a list of chairs I wanted to try. The sales associate was terrific and took me all through the store to sit on each one of them. I chose the Talbot chair because it was so comfortable and I thought the scale would fit the room. There was a huge selection of fabric that felt great. I love how they look and better yet, how it feels to sit in them. This is my new favorite place to hang out and relax.

I love this chair!


I love the modern look of this chair, but it is also comfortable and roomy to sit in. My favorite part is the fun pattern on the fabric, which we were able to see on the computer when we placed our order.

The Perfect Chair


Very comfortable and was exactly what I had been looking for. So pleased with the product and the on-time delivery. We have been La-Z-Boy customer for years.

Talbot Chair

Although there are many positive customer reviews, the Talbot Chair may not be for everyone. 


First and foremost, the cost of the Talbot Chair may be an area of concern. If this particular model is out of your price range, we offer a wide variety of recliners and may have another style that better matches your budget. 


Further, the Talbot Chair may not be the best choice for you if you are exceptionally tall. Although taller clients can find comfort in the large bucket seat of the Talbot chair, it may not provide tall individuals with the proper lumbar and knee support if you intend on sitting in the chair for long periods of time.
