High Point, NC (April 21, 2017) – La‑Z‑Boy announced today the release of Duo, a revolutionary new product line that features the sophisticated look of stationary furniture with the unexpected power to recline at the push of a button.
“When developing Duo, our goal was to bring the great look of a stationary sofa together with the comfort of a motion piece,” said Gregg Schweir, vice president of research and development for La‑Z‑Boy. “Today, most reclining furniture has a distinct look, and we rose above that stereotype by creating a beautiful reclining sofa that was not limited by styling options.”
When it comes to designing the perfect room, it’s all about the details. Duo can be placed anywhere in a room, even up against a wall. Patented ComfortCore® cushions bring added comfort, and the optional battery pack provides power for days - making it possible for Duo to float anywhere in the room without cords. The footrest itself rotates front and back, ergonomically adjusting based on a person’s height. In addition, Duo sofas and loveseats have a smooth upholstered outside back without spilt lines or seams – typically visible on reclining pieces.
“For a couple designing the perfect room, there was always a compromise between style and function – especially in small spaces,” said Paula Hoyas, vice president of merchandising for La‑Z‑Boy. “Customers can now get exactly what they want without having to decide between design and comfort – it’s a perfect match. Duo represents a new look in reclining comfort.”
The line is proudly built in the United States and includes standard USB ports on every piece of furniture, including a sectional, sofas, loveseats, and chairs. Duo will initially include four styles that are available in multiple pieces, each of which is fully customizable in more than 900 fabrics and leathers and a range of comfort and styling options.
Duo will be available in La‑Z‑Boy Furniture Galleries retail locations this fall.
