History of La-Z-Boy Furniture
The La-Z-Boy company was founded in 1927 in Monroe, Detroit. La-Z-Boy was actually the first company to design and manufacture reclining chairs. While it is a fairly simple idea, it was seen as a revolutionary invention.
The La-Z-Boy recliner rocker wasn’t introduced until 1961. Prior to that, while the company did manufacture a variety of reclining chairs, its rocker became its most sought-after product throughout the 60s.
In 1983, La-Z-Boy began manufacturing stationary sofas and chairs and it also began to expand to offer products in places like New Zealand and Australia.
For almost a century, La-Z-Boy has remained in the spotlight. Its products have been featured in countless films and TV shows, which has helped to cement the company as a quality furniture manufacturer.
With it being such a well-known and popular company, it won’t come as much of a surprise to learn that it has won a plethora of awards for its furniture products over the years. In 2013, the company received the RMHC Outstanding Stewardship Award. It has also been voted as Calgary’s gold-winning furniture store for 8 years in a row.
