The customer who came up with the name La-Z-Boy (through a contest the company held) had a stroke of genius, because the name perfectly evokes the way this chair makes you feel. Since 1928, when the company first introduced its recliners, generations have grown up with the enjoyment of being able to kick back and read a bedtime story or watch TV in ultimate comfort. Two young cousins back in the 1920s quit their jobs to go into business together. The duo first began creating cabinets and doll furniture in a garage, but with a lot of investment and hard work, they eventually realized their dream of building their own furniture factory. When they built their first upholstered folding chair designed with an original reclining mechanism, they had a hit. Today the company sells a whole range of chairs, sofas, sectionals, tables and outdoor furnishings including spas and hot tubs.
