Are you someone who’s nosy by nature and wants to be in the centre of all the action? You might want to consider getting yourself a swivel chair!

Cost of a Swivel Chair at La-Z-Boy

Now that you’re aware of the different types of swivel chairs offered at La-Z-Boy, the question on everyone’s mind is how much these swivel chairs cost.

Generally speaking, the price range for these swivel chairs is around $1,300 - $2,000.

*All La-Z-Boy prices listed in this article are subject to change. We aim to update all cost-related articles twice per year. This article was last updated on December 5th, 2023. Please visit and select an Ottawa or Kingston La-Z-Boy store location to view the most up-to-date pricing.


Factors that Affect the Cost of a Swivel Chair at La-Z-Boy

Keeping the cost of these swivel chairs in mind, there are several other factors that can affect the cost of your swivel chair, which are listed below…

The Types of Swivel Chairs

The most significant cost indicator is the type of swivel chair you choose. “If you’re going for a regular swivel chair, the price will be different then if you decide to make it into a recliner that either rocks or glides,” she says.

Regular Swivel Chairs

La-Z-Boy’s regular swivel chairs are the least expensive option since they are swivel chairs that only swivel. “These chairs are not recliners, are not gliders, and are only there to look stylish and delicious,” Magaly says.

Magaly says that swivel chairs can also be used as great accent pieces in a room. To learn more about La-Z-Boy’s Top Swivel Accent Chairs, take a look at this article. 

As mentioned before, each swivel chair rotates at a whole 360-degree angle, meaning you can place your swivel chair anywhere in your room and still engage in what’s happening around you.

These chairs might be referred to as stationary chairs, but this is only because La-Z-Boy also has reclining swivel chairs.

Reclining Swivel Chairs

Naturally leading into our next swivel chair, reclining swivel chairs are, simply put, swivel chairs that can also recline

These swivel chairs allow you to relax in comfort while still being able to swivel whenever. Reclining chairs at La-Z-Boy can have the option to be a rocker recliner, a wall recliner, and a gliding recliner. 

Since you’re able to add a swivel base to these recliners, your rocker and gliding recliners can become swivel chairs, as well! The only recliner that cannot become a swivel chair is a wall recliner since its main purpose is to recliner stay placed mere inches away from a wall, which wouldn’t lend well to rotating.  at all times.

Swivel, rocking, and gliding are the three motions that La-Z-Boy has to offer, each coming with its own pros and cons. To see which one is right for you, take a look at some of our comparison articles about Swivels vs Gliders and Rockers vs. Gliders.

Reclining chairs can rival the price of regular swivel chairs. But, if the rocking or gliding recliners have an added swivel base, the price can get higher since the swivel base is can be considered an upgrade.

High-Leg Swivel Chairs

Not to be confused with our High Leg Secret Recliners, high-leg swivel chairs are similar to our regular swivel chair selection. The only difference is that these swivel chairs have distinct legs instead of a regular swivel base.

But how does that work? Instead of the swivel base holding the chair up, the swivel base is perched upon the legs of the chair rather than being exposed. Now, the accent is on the stylish legs of the chair in contrast to the swivel base.

These swivel chairs are a little bit more expensive than regular swivel chairs due to their stylish legs, but not by much, according to Magaly.

The selection at La-Z-Boy for high-leg chairs, however, is only limited to two chairs. You can learn more about the Reegan and the Bellevue by checking out their in-depth review articles.

Quality of Materials & Craftsmanship

As mentioned before, the cost of a swivel chair also depends on the quality of the materials and craftsmanship. Essentially, the better quality of the swivel chair, the more expensive it will be.

Although our furniture is considered more expensive, this cost is a direct indicator of quality and longevity. La-Z-Boy furniture is built to last a long time, meaning you’ll be saving money down the road if you choose to spend more initially. 

Size & Shape of Frame

Additionally, the size and shape of a swivel chair can also affect its cost. Since the cost depends on the materials used, the bigger the chair, the more materials are required to make said chair. 

“You can tell a chair is going to be expensive –swivel or not– if the arms are big. The arms of the chair are what normally gets detailed the most,” Magaly says. This also means that the shape of a swivel chair is also reflected in the cost. 

If the arms are bigger, for example, the cost might be higher. This is also reflected in the higher cost shown with the price of high-leg swivel chairs, except, in this case, the extra cost is due to the materials used to make the legs.  

Customizations & Upgrades

At La-Z-Boy, customizations are encouraged!  

Swivel chairs can be customized by the type of upholstery covering you choose, cushion density, the wood finish on the swivel base or legs, and even the nailhead trim on some pieces.

With this, the price also depends on the number of customizations you want to add to your swivel chair. 

Upholstery Covers

La-Z-Boy has over 800 fabric covers to choose from, meaning you can truly make your swivel chair as unique as you want. 

Some swivel chairs are offered in select fabric options, which are selected to complement the swivel chair's frame and design. These select fabrics do not increase the price of your furniture piece. However, should you go beyond that selection, you will be subjected to additional fees.

Leather Covers

If you opt for leather, this will likely increase the cost of your swivel chair. Although leather is a more expensive option than fabric, leather tends to be extremely durable and long-lasting.

La-Z-Boy has a leather program, which includes various types of leather at different price points. If you customize your La-Z-Boy swivel chair in leather, expect a cost increase of $200 - $850

Specialty Fabrics

In addition to the upholstery covers mentioned above, La-Z-Boy also offers specialty fabrics that offer unique features and benefits. The following specialty fabrics are available:

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.

Specialty fabrics will typically increase the price of your swivel chair by about $80 - $1,000, depending on the specialty fabric.

Contrasting Welt Trim

Contrasting welt trim is a great way to add character to your swivel chair, but this addition does come at a cost. At La-Z-Boy, the price of adding a contrasting welt trim is an extra $100 to the starting price of your swivel chair.

Nailhead Trims

Nailhead trims are an excellent addition to a swivel chair if you’re looking to accent your furniture piece. Magaly mentions, however, that not all swivel chairs can have the option to customize the nailhead trim.

At La-Z-Boy, this extra bling on your swivel chair will cost an additional $100.

Swivel Base Finish

Swivel chairs at La-Z-Boy have a swivel base that complements the look of the chair. The standard wood finish at La-Z-Boy is brown mahogany, which does not increase the price of the furniture item. 

With that being said, if you opt for alternative options like graphite, coffee, or driftwood, there will be an additional cost.

High-leg swivel chairs also have the same options for their decorative wooden legs.

If you want a swivel base or wood leg finish aside from the standard colour, an additional $70 will be added to the starting price of your swivel chair.

Furniture Financing

With all of these costs in mind, we understand that purchasing a swivel chair at La-Z-Boy or anywhere else can be costly.

That is why there is a payment option called furniture financing. This allows customers to pay off the cost of their furniture item over time instead of paying the full cost at once. If you’re in a pinch with finances, this kind of payment option might be more beneficial for you. 

The process of financing furniture is done through a third-party institution. At La-Z-Boy, for example, we partner with Flexiti Financing to provide furniture financing options for our clients. 

Flexiti offers the benefits of instant approval and easy monthly payments. Once you have applied and been approved, you can shop and finance with Flexiti anytime. 

Other financial institutions that other furniture retailers use are Fairstone and Paybright.
