The name may conjure up images of an old uncle hunkered down in his threadbare recliner with the remote and a beer, but La-Z-Boy has a surprisingly spiffy array of furnishings. The cavernous, slate-and-halogen Soho showroom reflects the store’s urbane “Metro” qualifier. Yes, there are standards like recliners, loveseats, ottomans, and sectional sofas with a plush, sink-into-me look that screams “couch potato.” But there are also modish designs, leather-swathed pieces, and sleek, square-back options that most would never peg as La-Z-Boys. Numerous accent items like vases, trays, synthetic potted plants, and Buddha statuettes sit on the backlit shelving wrapping around the showroom. But there’s still the kitschy touch of coffee-spills scattered atop the furniture—ominous reminders that customers may someday need La-Z-Boy’s five-year warranty, which covers everything from cigarette burns to bodily fluids.
