A beautiful way to relax: La-Z-Boy reclining chairs

I’m proud of our home. It’s taken me a long time to make it just the way I wanted it… smart, modern and comfortable. Our La-Z-Boy is a part of that look; it’s at home with company as it is when we’re relaxing on a quiet evening.

And, La-Z-Boy is the best. We looked at almost every recliner made, but none can match La-Z-Boy for styling, comfort or quality. If you’re as particular about your home as we are of ours, you’ll choose a La-Z-Boy, tool

La-Z-Boy is still making them like they used to (1975)

How many times have you heard that expression — they’re not making them like they used to. And it’s true. Back in the good old days, you could get your dollar’s worth. You could count on quality. Somebody cared.

Somebody still does. La-Z.Boy. We’ve been crafting chairs with quality and pride in workmanship all along. And we’ll never stop. Take our La-Z-Rocker, for example. It swivels. It rocks. It turns easily on a specially designed mechanism. It gives you all you could ask for in comfort. It’s built to last. It’s made with the very finest materials — like fine fabrics of DuPont Nylon. So the next time you think they’re not making them like they used to, think again.

  1. Where do I find 1960/70s Lazy recliners today (2020) is there a particular site that sells these vintage chairs?
    Thank you

      1. Darcy I would love to find the 1967 Rocking Recliner from Lazyboy have any idea where i can find one.

    1. You can’t. In 1981, the United Housewives of America raised enough money to have a special landfill created just for lazyboys from the 1960’s and 1970’s.

    2. I have a yellowish/tan one that’s vinyl/cloth and a green and black one that’s threads. Good cond for being from 60s. Both swivel and rock.

    3. Cara,
      I am in MI between Detroit and Ann Arbor. I have been researching Lazy Biy chairs with wooden arms and matching ottomans. I still have my dads chair from when I was a kid. The arms are upholstered except at the very end where you would put your hands to get up out of the chair. There is a matching ottoman to it.
      It has never been reupholstered and the upholstery is in dire shape but the mechanism works fine and the wood trim needs to be refinished bc it’s in its original worn state.
      Please contact me with any info you might have. I don’t know if this comment is still viable or monitored or how long ago it was put up but contact me if you can…

  2. Would anyone be able to identify what kind of la-z-boy I have? I know it’s an older model as I can’t find it anywhere on their site. It’s older and yellowish/tannish with tiny floral dots all over it. A wooden handle that says the company name. It’s a rocker recliner and swivels a full 360.

  3. I came across a 1976 Lazy boy swivel rocker. It is in amazing condition. Does anyone may know how much it may be worth

  4. Cara, Just scrolled down to read that Lazy Boys were put in a special landfill!! Is that true? My dad’s goes back to at least from 1956 or slightly ghtky before!
