Est. Reading Time: 10 Mins

When choosing the right furniture piece, you need to know if it will go well with your other furniture items. You want something that matches the style of your home but also something that speaks to you personally.

At La-Z-Boy, we have many different furniture styles that resonate with many different people. In fact, most of our furniture families either come in a traditional, modern or contemporary style.

The Talladega furniture family does not differ from this. The Talladega has been around for quite some time now, and it is known as a great recliner for employees and customers alike.

There is one thing you might be wondering, though, what makes this furniture family stand out from the rest of our furniture families at La-Z-Boy? And is the Talladega right for you?

Well, luckily, we have you covered! This article will discuss the Talladega in detail, from its unique features, options & upgrades, customer reviews, and if the Talladega is right for you.

Talladega Furniture Family (Available Frame Options)

The Talladega furniture family comes in many different frame options. Customers can choose between a recliner, a loveseat or a sofa.

Talladega Recliner

Talladega Recliner

The Talladega recliner is offered in two different options. You can either choose between the Rocking Recliner or go for the Wall Recliner. Both recliners can recline by simply using the handle on the outside arm of the chair.

With the Talladega Rocking Recliner, you can rock in a smooth and graceful motion when not in a reclining position. With the Wall Recliner, you can place this recliner mere inches from any wall while still being able to effortlessly recline. 

Talladega Reclining Loveseat

Talladega LoveseatThe Talladega also comes as a loveseat. With this furniture frame, relaxing next to a friend, a family member, or that special someone has never been easier. Similar to the recliner, two latches are available on each side for individualized reclining comfort.

Talladega Reclining Sofa

Talladega SofaLastly, the Talladega also comes as a sofa. Instead of two cushions to sit on, like the loveseat, the sofa offers three cushions for a more family-friendly relaxation experience. There are also two convenient latches on each side of the sofa that allows you to recline.


Unique Features

Regarding unique features, the Talladega furniture family has much to talk about.

Designed for maximum style and exceptional comfort, the Talladega offers ultra-plush chaise seats and legrests that create a continuous zone of comfort, especially in the reclining position. The sleek padded arms and tall foam back provide unparalleled support for your head and neck.

Speaking of the padded arms, these arms are curved, offering a welcoming arm to whoever feels like sitting down. The exposed wings of its arms also give the Talladega a look that remains fresh and inviting.

Along with the streamlined style that Talladega has, it also has what La-Z-Boy calls racing stripe detailing with its top-stitching designs. Top-stitching is only available in leather covers, which we will discuss in this article's options & upgrades section.


Sizes & Dimensions

When comparing the size and dimensions of the Talladega to other furniture families at La-Z-Boy, the Talladega is quite big.

To ensure that the large frame of the Talladega can fit in your space, be sure to Measure Your Room.

Further, given that the Talladega has a supportive tall foam back, this furniture family can fit anyone comfortably with a height of 6’3” and up

Shorter individuals might have a harder time sitting comfortably in Talladega’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.

Ultimately, we recommend always coming in for a sit test to see if you think the Talladega is comfortable for your body type. To learn more, take a look at How to Find a Recliner That is The Best Fit For You.

Options & Upgrades

Talladega has plenty to choose from compared to other La-Z-Boy furniture families. 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.

When choosing select fabrics, the Talladega comes in 5 select fabric covers. These all range from neutral-toned beiges and greys to admiral dark blue and persimmon red for a more bold fabric colour. These fabric covers do not increase the price of your Talladega.

When it comes to leather options, there are 3 select cover options. These leather options include the colours shitake, chestnut, and grey.


Along with the leather selection, the aforementioned racing stripe topstitching is also available. This topstitching, which is located on the lower back of the Talladega furniture frames, gives an extra flair to the rest of the leather furniture items.

If you love the regular topstitching and want a modern edge to your furniture piece, you can upgrade to Harmony Leather, which features a decorative heavy-gauge double-needle top stitching on the lower back, and arm posts, and wings.

It is important to note that all leather options, including the select leather selection, will always increase the overall cost.

Ultimately, 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 Talladega 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.


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, Talladega’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 Motion Furniture Collection catalogue.

Optional Swivel Base

If you're interested, the Talladega 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.

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 Talladega 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 Talladega 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.


Heat & Massage Upgrade

Additionally, the Talladega Power Rocking Recliner has an extra option to upgrade your power recliner with Heat & Massage. This is something that the wall recliner or other Talladega products do not provide.

Customers can enjoy this incredibly comfortable chair that includes two heat settings and three massage speeds. 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 legrest.

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

Optional Console (Loveseat)

Loveseat w/ConsoleSpecifically to the Talladega Loveseat is the option to include a console in the middle of the seat. This handy centre 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 grab a drink. Further, the console offers an interior electronic charging input instead of the ports being on the outside of the loveseat.

If the console is something that interests you, you can also add the Power and Headrest upgrade to enhance your Talladega loveseat into a truly comfortable experience.



In terms of cost, the Talladega furniture products are within the mid-high price range at La-Z-Boy.

While the cost of the Talladega 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 Talladega Furniture Family Right For You?

Now that you know everything you need to know about the Talladega 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.

New call-to-action

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 to have long-lasting furniture, the Talladega, 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 Talladega furniture might not be the right investment.

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

Moreover, the Talladega furniture has a large scale and seats a taller clientele, meaning shorter individuals might have a harder time sitting on this furniture family. If you’re looking for something that seats you and others with average-sized heights, this furniture family is not right for you.

Finally, when it comes to style, the Talladega has more detailing when it comes to its leather selection. If you’re looking for a more unique design for your furniture, the topstitching with the Harmony Leather provides a more modern look, with the advantage of turning heads when guests are invited.

However, if you’re looking for more low-key furniture, the recommended cover would be the neutral fabric options. 

What's Next?

Now that you have a more knowledgeable understanding of the Talladega 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.
