History of La-Z-Boy
The La-Z-Boy story began in the 1920s when two cousins, Edward M. Knabusch and Edwin J. Shoemaker, partnered to create comfortable furniture. In 1927, they invented a groundbreaking reclining chair with a unique mechanism that allowed users to effortlessly recline and relax. The duo named it the "La-Z-Boy" recliner, a name that would become synonymous with comfort and relaxation.
The original La-Z-Boy recliner was an instant success, and in 1929, Knabusch and Shoemaker patented their innovative reclining mechanism. As demand grew, the cousins established the La-Z-Boy Chair Company in Monroe, Michigan, to meet the market's needs.
In the 1960s, La-Z-Boy expanded its product line beyond recliners, introducing sofas, loveseats, and other seating options. The company focused on combining comfort with stylish designs, and their products gained popularity among households across the United States.
Over the years, La-Z-Boy has continued to refine and enhance its furniture, incorporating modern features like power reclining, adjustable headrests, and built-in USB ports. The company's commitment to quality craftsmanship and ergonomic design has earned it a strong reputation in the furniture industry.
Today, La-Z-Boy operates worldwide, with numerous retail stores and a wide range of furniture offerings. Their product catalog includes not only recliners and sofas but also accent chairs, ottomans, and various home accessories.
La-Z-Boy's iconic recliners remain one of their most recognizable and beloved products, providing comfort and relaxation to countless individuals and families around the world.
