The sofa is a vital part of any home – the place you go to relax and unwind at the end of a busy day.

It also serves as the focal point of your living room, often setting the tone for the whole room. This is why La-Z-Boy UK’s team works hard to keep up with the latest trends to create furniture which is fresh, modern and meets the needs of our customers.

Our design team look carefully at trend forecasts, which identify what consumers want and need as well as any changes in their lifestyle, attitude, and spending habits. Looking at general trends within the furniture industry and analysing which pieces in our current range are the most popular, we are able to ensure that we continue to produce sofas, armchairs and recliners which reflect the tastes of today’s consumers.

La-Z-Boy prides itself on making classic, timeless pieces which will last for years. Our Originals and Comfort Studio Collections have the traditional La-Z-Boy look many of our customers love, while our Urban Attitudes collection is more contemporary and ideally suited for metropolitan city living.

Move towards informal comfort

After three UK lockdowns to help control the Covid-19 pandemic, people have been spending more time in their homes than ever before. This has seen people shifting to wanting more comfortable and informal sofas, which are durable and hardwearing and will stay looking great even after lots of use.

There has also been a move towards people mixing and matching sofas and chairs, rather than having a co-ordinating three piece suite. La-Z-Boy’s Swivel Recliners are a great example of a versatile and comfortable way of adding more seating to your home without being tied to the traditional idea of one sofa and two matching armchairs. We have even introduced two tone sofa collections.

One way La-Z-Boy’s design team stays on trend is by expanding the choice of colours, fabrics and leathers each piece is available in. By offering our customers a wide choice, they can choose something which reflects their personal taste and fits in with their plans for their living room as a whole.

Popular colours for 2021 include earthy tones like rust and beige, as well as moss green and inky blues. The Oregano, Avocado, Aegean, Russet and Burnt Orange shades available in our fabric selection perfectly reflect these colour trends.

In our leather selection, our Salsa, Tango and Biscuit colourways fit in with the move towards earthy hues, while fans of inky blues will love our Atlantic, Pacific and Navy choices. Nature always plays an important part in our designs and shades and our Olive and Forest leather shades work well for people wanting to bring a sense of the outdoors into their home.

As always, our grey toned ranges prove ever-popular, providing the opportunity for you to change your colour scheme by simply changing your sofa’s cushions and room accessories.

We pride ourselves in providing choice for every style. You can explore all our ranges here to find the one which is right for you.
