la-z-boy is not just for grandpas anymore

Brooke Shields backs La-Z-BoyMost successful brands evoke a certain image in the minds of consumers immediately upon hearing the brand name or seeing the logo. Because of the ridiculously comfy leather recliners that La-Z-Boy perfected in the late 1920’s, many times the La-Z-Boy name is associated with a grandpa leaning back, snoring sans dentures, or of a beer-bellied dad, kickin’ back, watching an NFL marathon each and every Sunday.

Well, soon, those images are going to change. Recently, La-Z-Boy has redesigned their storeroom floors and launched some trendy, sleek furniture lines that are affordable and would look great in any home. They even have Brooke Shields as their spokesperson now (and the commercials make me crack up!), to pull the moms of the world into the mix.

Last week, a few of my fellow bloggers and I co-hosted a Grand Opening event at two of the local La-Z-Boy furniture galleries in San Diego county (San Marcos and La Mesa) where we were able to take tours around the show room floors and peruse all of their lines. I was more impressed than I even thought I was going to be and I wanted nearly everything in sight.

The very first area I walked into was done up in all the same colors I have in my living room, except all of my furniture is over eleven years old. I almost pulled out my credit card right on the spot.

They have a ton of great new prints, colors and styles that can be mix-matched and custom designed. The best part is that they have a complimentary service in which a designer will come to your home, check out your spaces, measure, etc, and then help you put your room (s) together.

If you’re in the market for some new living room furniture, or even a few fun accessories like lamps, wall art or vases, check out their new storerooms or you can shop online. They’re having a big 25% off sale so get up off of your recliners and get shopping.
