What started out as a seasonal porch chair ended up being a staple of the American living room. Cousins Edward Knabusch and Edwin Shoemaker designed a wood slat outdoor folding chair from orange crates in 1928 - the first La-Z-Boy recliner. A comfortable concept, the chair followed the contour of a person’s body, both sitting up and leaning back. In 1927, the cousins abandoned secure jobs, joined forces, and invested in their own furniture business in Monroe, Michigan. Suddenly, Knabusch, a woodworker, became the marketer, and Shoemaker, originally a farmer, became an engineer. An important furniture buyer refused to purchase any La-Z-Boys from the cousins because at that time La-Z-Boys while very comfortable were only seasonal porch chairs. The buyer advised the inventors to upholster the chair and sell it as a year-round piece. The upholstered recliner was a great success. With financial help from friends and family, Knabusch and Shoemaker patented their invention and registered their trademarks. In 1931, Knabusch and Shoemaker received a patent for the first automatic recliner. La-Z-Boy rode their solid reputation and emerged as the Baby Boom favorite into the 1950s. During 1970s and 1980s La-Z-Boy hired several big name celebrities for their ad campaign such as actor Jim Backus (Thurston Howell III on Gilligan’s Island) and actor and former Detroit Lions Alex Karras. Today La-Z-Boy is truly a 21st Century forward thinking furniture and home decor company with retail design showrooms across the United States and around the world. .----------------------------------------­------------------------ If you see this, type "ONLY THE BEST BRANDS!" in the comments - and please LIKE/FAV! ----------------------------------------­------------------------ BrandmadeTV - How a La-Z-Boy Recliner is made! © BrandmadeTV 2015 This format and title of this program is protected under Copyright and Trademark Law and may not be emulated or re-created in any way without express consent in any territory worldwide.

I agree. The chairs are not the say. As you can see in the video they are using particle board not real wood. Way over charging as well. The quality has been compromised and is not they same as they used to be

Always had a La Z Boy, but this is my last. When I sat in it when I got it home, there are times that I put my hands under my legs. So a few days after getting the chair, I put my hands under my legs to find the is no cushion on the sides and my hands scrape along the wood.

Our rocker recliner finally bit the dust. It is 17 years old. The bottom seat stuffing fell out and the reclining mechanism hasn't worked for several years. I am not sure whether to buy a new one or fix it myself.
Great recliners. I've owned a few over the years and they last 2-4 longer than the competition. They are very durable, the fabric seems to hold up very well and the frame construction is top notch and can handle a lot of use and abuse the same goes for the metal springs and hardware. Excellent chairs that are very comfortable, durable, long lasting and affordable what more can you ask for?
i went looking at there store here in perth, and as soon as i saw the made in china label, i walked out. spent my $5000 on a local companys product.

I just ordered a couple of couches and a chair from La-Z-boy, I hope that I am happy with this purchase. I was happy to hear they are made in the USA. The electric recliner cost $1,300 on sale. I hope it lasts!
