Unique Features of the Roxie Swivel Chair
The Roxie Swivel Chair is a versatile chair that adds a stylish spin to any room, with a 360-degree swivel base to you at the center of attention. Rolled arms and a deep T-seat cushion, all with welt trim, gives Roxie definition and structure.
While the Roxie chair offers style, it also boasts in comfort. The padded outer arms and padded outer back invite a snuggle. Further, the Roxie features ComfortCore® cushions that provide optimum support for a long or short sit.
The Roxie Swivel Chair is also offered as a Swivel Glider Chair. This alternative base not only offers a 360-degree swivel, but also glides back and forth in a smooth motion.
Sizes & Dimensions
The look of the Roxie can complement any home design, but it is also important that the size of the Roxie fits your space.
When it comes to size, Mary Lee says the Roxie has an average-sized frame. With a lower back, she adds that the Roxie looks great in front of a window without blocking the natural light.
While the Roxie fits comfortably in many spaces, it is still crucial to measure your room in order to ensure that you have enough space for it to fit comfortably.
Moreover, it is important to not only consider how the Roxie Chair will fit into your space but also how it will support your unique body type. Generally speaking, the dimensions of the Roxie Chair are best suited for individuals of an average to tall height, between 5’10” and 6’2”.

Options & Upgrades
Everything at La-Z-Boy is customizable, including the Roxie Swivel Chair. You have the ability to make the Roxie uniquely yours with a variety of options and upgrades.
The upholstery cover you choose for your Roxie Chair greatly impacts its overall look and feel.
The Roxie Swivel Chair does not have a select fabric associated with it. Instead, the Roxie is offered in over 800 fabric and leather options.
Amongst this wide selection of fabric includes the following premium-grade specialty fabrics…
Innovative iClean technology surrounds each fabric fibre, creating a barrier that repels spills before turning into stains.
Tested and formulated to withstand the scratches and wear that a pet can cause, to ensure a durable and easily washable fabric.
Antimicrobial properties surround each fibre to protect against mould, mildew, and odour-causing bacteria.
Superior stain and fade-resistant properties make these fabrics easy to clean and incredibly durable.
Conserve Sustainable Fabrics are soft, durable, and made from recycled water bottles.
Raise the bar on comfort even higher by upgrading the ComfortCore® seat cushions of your Roxie Chair.
Upgrade to ComfortCore® Gel Cushions.
In addition to the standard ComfortCore® cushioning, this upgrade includes a casing made of 1.5” thick, 3.7 density Airform responsive foam that conforms to your every curve allowing muscles to relax and rejuvenate. Further, the Gel-infused 1″, 2.4 density memory foam distributes pressure and lessens the initial “firmness” of the Airform, and provides a soft but supportive foundation.
This upgrade costs an additional $150.
The shape of the Roxie is crisp and tailored. With contrasting welt trim, the Roxie looks even crisper, with added personality and decorative detail.
The base of the Roxie can be customized with an optional finish.
Standard Mahogany is the finish of the Roxie base. Instead, you can opt for a Coffee finish if you’d prefer.
With this being said, Mary notes that the base of the Roxie is mostly hidden by the perimeter of the chair. The base can only be seen from a distance.

Is the Roxie Swivel Chair Right for You?
The Roxie Swivel Chair is a beautiful occasional chair, but is it the right chair for you?
Generally speaking, the Roxie is great for someone looking for an accent chair to add to a living room furniture arrangement, or to stand alone in a reading nook, bedroom, or nursery. In fact, Mary Lee says the Roxie can fit seamlessly into any room in the home.
More specifically, the swivel and gliding feature of the Roxie is great for new parents. The smooth motion is very soothing for parents and their newborn child, replicating the comforts of the womb.
As previously mentioned, the size of the Roxie Chair is most comfortable for those between the heights of 5’10” to 6’2”. With that being said, the quality comfort of the ComfortCore® cushioning can offer a cozy seat for those of many sizes.
It is important to note that the Roxie does not have the ability to recline. In turn, someone who wants to kick their legs up and seeks reclining comfort may not find what they are looking for in the Roxie Chair. Instead, they may prefer one of our 5 Best Selling Recliner Chairs at La-Z-Boy Ottawa & Kingston or a Secret Recliner Chair.
Finally, the cost of the Roxie Swivel Chair falls within the mid-price range at La-Z-Boy. In turn, the Roxie is a good choice for someone who is prepared to make a significant investment in comfort that will last for years.
Alternatively, a client who is looking for temporary furniture on a small budget might find a better alternative amongst our Affordable Chair selection at La-Z-Boy.
