La-Z-Boy Has Changed Their Recliners
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- LA-Z-Boy was THE recliner to buy in years past. I bought a new one in 2011 and the quality is nowhere near the quality of the older chairs. A repair tech told me the company replaced the foam in the chairs with poly. The poly compacts leaving a hard surface. I've had the back replaced x 2 and the chair is still very uncomfortable.
Another repair tech told me there is still foam in a few of their chairs but the foam is not the same quality because foam is petroleum based. I love La-Z-Boy recliners because of the multiple positions I can use but I'm afraid I'm going to switch to another brand. I do not want to spend $1000.00 plus dollars every year or 2 for a chair. The mechanism in the chair has also been replaced.
A friend sat in my chair and said it was comfortable but about 10 minutes later he said this chair isn't very comfortable and the seat has gotten hard. I will say the local store was very helpful but the chair is still very uncomfortable. I'm giving up LA-Z-Boy after about 30 years of sitting in them.
