Unique Features

The Roxie Swivel Gliding 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. Not only does it swivel fully around, it also glides back and forth in a smooth and graceful motion 

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.

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”.

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 that you visit a La-Z-Boy showroom and take the Roxie chair for a sit test with the help of a La-Z-Boy design consultant.

Is the Roxie Swivel Gliding Chair Right for You?

The Roxie Swivel Gliding 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 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.
