La-Z-Boy Unveils Three New Spring/Summer 2012 Trends to Highpoint Market

La-Z-Boy Showcases Graphic Patterns, Vibrant Colors and Calming Earth Tones with the "Pixie Fresh," "Walden Woods" and "Fire and Ice" Trends at Highpoint Furniture Market

HIGH POINT, N.C., (April 21, 2012) -La-Z-Boy announces three new trends, "Walden Woods," "Pixie Fresh," and "Fire and Ice," in the home fashion and furniture industry. "Walden Woods" soothes with calming earth tones and muted colors. The "Walden Woods'" patterns are inspired by nature, and the khakis, plums and mossy greens bring wilderness to life. "Pixie Fresh" incorporates bright colors, large scale patterns, and whimsical prints. From fun florals to fresh graphics, "Pixie Fresh" makes a statement. "Fire and Ice" showcases a modern look that mixes neutrals with spice. "Fire and Ice" employs elements of hot and cold, with graphic patterns and striking color combinations.

"Walden Woods" offers a soothing palette of brown-grays, mossy greens and soft purples. The La-Z-Boy showroom at the High Point Furniture Market this spring will showcase how "Walden Woods" re-imagines nature in the home, using natural motifs like birds, butterflies, trees, leaves and textures like wood and stone to bring the outside in. The items incorporating the "Walden Woods" trend were designed thoughtfully: resulting in sustainable products that are original and stylish.

"Pixie Fresh" is zesty, energizing and vibrant. The colors of this trend are bright, fresh and fiery. Charming designs with a touch of the unexpected add just the right touch to any La-Z-Boy furniture piece. "Pixie Fresh" employs retro floral patterns, unusual color combinations, and shimmering iridescent layers to produce a bright, entertaining effect that will liven up any room.

"Fire and Ice" blends the softness of "Walden Woods" with the excitement of "Pixie Fresh". The result is both contemporary and unexpectedly exuberant. The "Fire and Ice" trend utilizes color blocking - a method popular on the spring runways that pairs contrasting yet complimentary colors together to create a unique look. "Fire and Ice" pairs the vivid bright oranges and reds with the muted pale grey and charcoal to create a striking look that instantly updates any area of the home.

"Consumers often select furniture style and fabrics that reflect their own personalities and style," said Penny Eudy, product manager of upholstery for La-Z-Boy. "This market, La-Z-Boy presents a wide selection of great-looking stationary and motion sofas, sectionals, large and small recliners, and more, with colors, patterns and fabrics that inspire customers illustrate their individuality in their home design."
