Est. Reading Time: 9 Mins

At La-Z-Boy, we are known for making good quality recliners that last for generations. But with so many styles to choose from, it can be hard to make a decision on one recliner. 

Some recliners have modern designs to them, like the Turner, which so happens to be the subject of this article.

The Turner Recliner, along with its loveseat and sofa counterparts, shows itself off with a big and bulky presence. “You could say it ‘turns’ heads,” jokingly says Racha Pharaon, one of our design consultants at La-Z-Boy Kanata.

Though the Turner might be an attention grabber, how does it command presence? 

This article will break down everything you need to know about this bulky furniture family, from its unique features to if this furniture family is right for you.

Turner Furniture Family (Available Frame Options)

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of the Turner, let’s familiarize ourselves with each furniture frame that’s included. The Turner has three available furniture frames: a recliner, a loveseat, and a sofa.

Turner Recliner

Turner ReclinerOffering individualized comfort, the Turner Recliner is available as a rocker recliner, a wall recliner, and a glider recliner. Simply use the convenient handle on the outside arm to recline. 

The Turner Rocking and Glider Recliner rock or glide in a smooth and graceful motion while in an upright position. Alternatively, the Wall Recliner can be placed mere inches away from a wall while still being able to recline fully. 

To learn more about the difference between Rocking Recliners vs Gliding Recliners, check out this article.

Turner Loveseat

Turner LoveseatOffering two seats instead of one, the Turner Loveseat can be enjoyed individually or with that special someone. Simply use the latch on either side to recline. 

The Turner Loveseat is considered a Wall Recliner, which means it can also be placed mere inches away from a wall while still reclining fully. To learn more about the difference between Rocker Recliners vs Wall Recliners, check out this article.

Turner Sofa

Turner SofaLastly, the Turner Sofa offers three cushions for family-friendly comfort. Like the loveseat, there are latches on either side to enjoy reclining comfort. The sofa is also a wall recliner, which can be placed mere inches away from a wall.

 

Unique Features

The Turner furniture family, like any other furniture family from La-Z-Boy, offers some unique features that help it stand out from the rest.

The Turner offers a sensible look that’s fresh, timeless, and personality-driven. 

This conveniently scaled recliner features a modern-style back and single-needle top stitching on the back, legrest, and arms.

Regarding the arms, Racha says it stays true to its namesake with its turned-up thin padded arms.  “The padded arms are turned around the chair, giving it a more clean and compact look,” she says.

She also says that it has good cushioning for the head, especially in leather, with its detailed topstitching design.

 

Sizes & Dimensions

When examining your space for any new furniture item, it is always important to Measure Your Room.

Racha says that the Turner is more of a medium scaled furniture item that is suited for taller individuals. The recommended height for this furniture family is between 5’10” - 6’2”.

If you want to learn more about Recliners for Tall People, check out this article. Alternatively, if this recliner seems too tall for you, check out Recliners for Short People.

Ultimately, we recommend always coming in for a sit test to see if Turner 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.

Additionally, Racha says the Turner is also a very bulky furniture family, meaning average-sized rooms may lose a bit of room when this furniture is placed. Alternatively, the Turner might be more suitable for open-concept spaces.

Options & Upgrades

When compared to other La-Z-Boy furniture families, Turner has plenty of customization options to choose from. Keep in mind that with your selection of options and upgrades, the cost of the Turner furniture is subject to increase.  

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 it comes to choosing select fabrics, the Turner comes in 4 select fabric covers. Customers can choose between oatmeal, birch, flannel, or twig colours. These fabric covers do not increase the price of your Turner furniture.

When it comes to leather options, there are 2 select cover options. These leather options include charcoal and a pebble colour.

Along with the leather selection, the aforementioned leather stitching is also available. All leather options, including 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 Turner is offered in specialty fabrics with 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, the cushions of the Turner furniture 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 before 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 Turner rocker and wall recliners, 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 recliner has a control panel on the right side of the chair, while the power loveseat and sofa have two control panels on the side of each furniture piece. With this, you can recline at the touch of a button. 

The rocking and wall recliners have a side-mounted 4-button control panel used to recline in 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 to charge your electronic devices.

If you are unsure of how to use the Turner control panels, check out La-Z-Boy Power Furniture: How to Use the Control Panel & Remote

Additionally, all power upgrades also have the option to be cordless, thanks to our rechargeable battery pack. This allows you to use your power recliners anywhere without worrying about plugging them into an electrical outlet.

If you want to learn more about battery packs, read this Review of the Rechargeable Battery Pack offered at La-Z-Boy.

Adjustable Headrest & Lumbar Support

With a power upgrade, all Turner Power furniture 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 the perfect reclining experience. 

Adjustable lumbar support is also available at La-Z-Boy. However, it is only featured in the Turner rocker and wall recliners.

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

Console Upgrade (Loveseat Only)

The Turner Loveseat has the option to include a console in the middle of the seat. This handy center console adds extra storage to put anything you wish inside the loveseat. 

Cup holders are also 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 outside the loveseat.

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

 

Cost

Regarding cost, the Turner furniture products fall within the mid-price range at La-Z-Boy.

While the cost of the Turner furniture is considered quite standard at La-Z-Boy, it is important to note that La-Z-Boy furniture is considered more expensive on 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 Turner Furniture Family Right For You?

Now that we have broken down the Turner furniture family, it is time to decide if this furniture family is right for you. To help you make this decision, here are some helpful guidelines you should look for when purchasing any furniture item.

When looking for new furniture, one must always consider their budget, functionality requirements, and style preferences.  

As previously mentioned, the cost of the Turner furniture falls within the mid-range at La-Z-Boy and the mid to high price range on the market. If you are looking to invest in high-quality and stylish reclining furniture, this might be the right choice for you. 

In contrast, if you are on a tight budget and looking for something more temporary, you may consider some of our more affordable furniture items.

When considering functionality, you must always ensure your furniture can fit in your home and complement your body type. If you have a bigger living room and a taller height, the Turner might just be right for you.

For alternative furniture items, check out Recliners for Short People and Sofas for Small Spaces.

This furniture is also reclining furniture, meaning it might be better for those who love to sit back, relax and maybe binge a couple of TV shows alone or with the company.

In contrast, if you’re looking for a more formal living room arrangement for hosting, stationary furniture might be more practical. To learn more about La-Z-Boy’s Formal Furniture Frames, check out this article.

Lastly, regarding style, Racha explains that this furniture family “has a more modern feel to it, which means a lot of people would be drawn to it.” 

That said, she says that the arms in the leather cover can create a little bit more of an elegant look. So, if you’re looking for this type of style, the Turner might be right for you!
