After a long day at work, there’s nothing better than sprawling out on your recliner sofa in front of the TV, and when it comes to recliner sofas, there is one brand that springs to mind – La-Z-Boy!

La-Z-Boy sofas are exclusively manufactured for ScS in the UK, but how much do you know about America’s bestselling recliner sofa, other than Joey’s famous La-Z-Boy chair in Friends?

The famous sofa brand dates back to 1928 when cousins Edward M. Knabusch and Edwin J. Shoemaker partnered and invested in the furniture business in the small town of Monroe, Michigan.

They set out to design a chair for what they called ‘nature’s way of relaxing.’ Using orange crates to mock-up and refine their idea, they invented a ‘wood-slat porch’ chair with a reclining mechanism.

Knabusch and Shoemaker then upholstered their innovation and marketed it as a ‘year-round chair.’ The chair was a success and they held a contest to name it — La-Z-Boy was the winner.

Between their formation in 1928 and 1969, La-Z-Boy focused primarily on recliner chairs, before introducing recliner and static sofas to their highly successful brand, a wide range of which are designed exclusively for ScS.

Many of our La-Z-Boy ranges feature a unique slouch recliner action, and there are over 50 reclining settings, so you will be sure to find the perfect for setting for optimum comfort.

Fast forward 47 years and the La-Z-Boy brand has gone from strength to strength, now selling products in Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the United Kingdom (exclusively for ScS).

Using only the finest fabrics and premium leathers from around the world, you can rest assured your new furniture is built to last. ScS offer a 10-year limited warranty on the robust frames and steel springs on all our La-Z-Boy products.
