Spotlight on La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries, Sponsor EMKE

La-Z-Boy will always have some super fond memories for me.  From rocking away in our mustard, brown and beige reclining chair as a child, to having them give me, an engineer looking for a career change, a chance at entering the decorating world.  Both memories were happy ones and started a life-long love for the company called La-Z-Boy.
La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries Ottawa has two beautiful showrooms, at 545 West Hunt Club Road and 1750 Cyrville Road.  These showrooms showcase everything from the traditional La-Z-Boy recliner to beautiful stationary pieces that would suit every space from modern to traditional.  The wide variety of upholstery options is what made La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries such a fun place to work.  We were able choose the right fit for the client and then have it upholstered to suit the likes of the client and their space.  If a quick turnaround was required, many pieces were available in the local warehouse, in a selection of fabrics.  And of course, the solid construction is one of the best in the market place, making it a place that I was proud to work at.

La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries Ottawa are big supporters of local charitable organizations.  So when we approached them about the charitable makeover of the Good Companion’s Senior Centre, they generously donated some beige leather chairs and an wood étagère for the cause.  The chairs were used for the main space in front of the reception desk.  The étagère was used to beautify the main entrance by holding all the literature that is required near the door, allowing us to remove a number of unattractive metal displays.  Based on what I know of La-Z-Boy’s commitment to solid furniture construction, I’m sure these pieces will be there when I’m ready to become a member of the centre.

  1. One of my favourite moments at the reveal was when an older gentleman sat down on one of the La-Z-Boy chairs and said it was perfect because he didn't sink too low or too far back, and that the arms were big and strong enough to push himself up from the chair. The exact reasons why we selected that style chair :-)

    And the etagere is a great addition to the entry. It really makes it look more like the entry to a home rather than a commercial building.

    Thanks La-Z-Boy!

  2. La-Z-Boy's chairs and etagere were the perfect additions to the space. I am sure they will remain part of the lobby and entrance at the Good Companions Center for many, many years to come. Thanks La-Z-Boy!
