La-Z-Boy: Natalie Sofa

I have worked with various furniture companies throughout the years, but none as exceptional as La-Z-Boy.  We were blessed to receive a Natalie Sofa towards the end of 2012 from this wonderful company.  Let me tell you, true quality at its finest.  

I visited the closest La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries store to us and was able to see all of the sofas up close and personal.  I was greeted with friendly smiles and all of my questions were answered.  I left knowing exactly what I wanted.  I never felt rushed when making my decision and received superb customer service during my visit.  Just the customer service alone would make me want to visit the gallery again for all of my future furniture needs.

With an excellent selection to choose from, I narrowed it down to the attractive Natalie style which is available in store only.  Its modern classic design is exactly what I had in mind.

I went in knowing I wanted a neutral, solid color since my old sofa was patterned.  The color shown in the model photo below is the color I chose to receive.  It's called Dove and it's a lovely neutral color that brightens up my room.  It's not so light that I'm afraid of anyone sitting in it, but it's still dark enough to hide any sort of smudges or dirt.  Not that I want a dirty sofa, but I do have two kids and this sofa gets a lot of use in our family room.


I was drawn to its clean lines, nicely cushioned seats and back and beautifully flared, curved roll arms.  This sofa is is very versatile and isn't a look that will go out of style anytime soon.


I am 5' 4" and it's important to me that my feet touch the ground when sitting upright.  I was happy with the size of this sofa for my height.  

Measurements:
Overall:  39" H x 86" W x 38" D
Seat:  21.5" H x 68" W x 20" D

This sofa fits three people very comfortably.  My family of four can all fit on it, but we don't sit together as the seat cushions obviously don't feel quite as comfortable when you're sitting in one of the creases.

There is also an occasional chair, love seat, ottoman and supreme comfort queen sleeper in the Natalie Collection.


While visiting the La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries store, I was able to see the huge selection of custom fabrics to choose from.  Talk about overchoice!  I cannot imagine someone not finding what they're looking for.  I love that La-Z-Boy has such a wide selection for their customers to choose from.  Definitely a plus when looking to customize your space.


The back cushions are attached to the sofa which I love.  Our old sofa had back cushions that were not attached, lost their shape very quickly and ended up being a pain to arrange all the time.  The back cushions on our Natalie sofa are not filled with loose filling.  It is a solid form that won't loose its shape.

The seat cushions are removable which is great if you want to change them around from time to time so the cushions get equal wear, especially when one side of the sofa gets used more than the other.


This is the cushion fabric pattern that was on the sofa in the showroom - Java.   It features cranberry, cream, taupes and black.  The quality fabric is thick and sturdy.  I like that in a throw pillow since they get leaned on and used quite a bit.

The Java pillow fabric doesn't exactly match our current decor theme, but we're enjoying them at the moment.  This is what is so great about the Natalie style in the color Dove.  This versatile neutral color allows us to change throw pillows whenever we're looking for a color/style change.  It would be wonderful to change fabrics with the seasons and holidays throughout the year.  This is another huge plus I see with this particular color and style of sofa.


The cushions feature a zipper closure should you need to have your covers cleaned or a new insert put in.


The tapered wood block feet add a nice warm touch to the overall look of the sofa.


Here is a close up photo of the sofa fabric in the color Dove.  It's ultra-soft to the touch and the subtle two-toned color gives it nice dimension.

This Natalie Sofa has a 5 out of 5 rating on the La-Z-Boy website.  I couldn't agree more.  I would definitely rate this 5 out of 5 any day.  Now that we have owned this sofa for a few months, we couldn't be happier.  It feels even better than the day we received it.

Nearly all of La-Z-Boy products are proudly built in the USA.  Plus, their products are backed with their famous La-Z-Boy limited warranty, one of the best in the industry.

If you've never experienced La-Z-Boy for yourself, I highly encourage you to visit a store near you.  

Complimentary product provided to me from La-Z-Boy.  All opinions are my own.
