Disclosure: I am partnering with La-Z-Boy on coverage of their new locations and have been provided the two items mentioned below. All opinions are 100% my own and are not influenced in any way.
I’m sure some of you remember my post about my partnership with La-Z-Boy. Here in the metro Detroit area they’ve been busy opening new locations! First, there was the new location in Sterling Heights. Next, was a location in Novi….and soon, they’ll be opening a location in Troy!! We had the pleasure of going to the Sterling Heights location to shop around, see all of their amazing modern furniture, learn about their warranty (fabulous, by the way!) and various other services they have.
Before our experience with La-Z-Boy we had talked numerous times about updating our family room. Much of the decor and furniture was from 10+ years ago when my husband first bought the house and decorated. Although it was still in great shape, it was outdated and I desperately wanted modern furniture, decor and paint.
Before any of our remodeling/updating this is what our family room looked like. You can see the outdated mirrors on the wall, the old furniture style, tables and lamps, etc. It was so ready for updating.
Modern Furniture and So Much More from La-Z-Boy
We started a while back doing just a bit at a time but La-Z-Boy gave us a reason to complete our started project that had gotten delayed so many times. We slowly did things like take the mirror off of the wall, switch out the furniture with the living room (we put the above furniture in our living room and instead used our sectional in this family room). The small changes just didn’t do it though.
When we went to La-Z-Boy, we found and fell in love with some modern furniture that got our real renovations started! I love that La-Z-Boy has customization available because I did not want the furniture in the light color the store had it in. We were able to custom order the pieces in a chocolate brown, which I LOVE! We chose the Metro Sofa and the Metro Stationary Occasional Chair. Yes, a stationary chair from La-Z-Boy! I told you in my earlier post they aren’t just recliners, which I was thrilled about because I wanted a modern chair and not the recliners we’ve been used to for years. Now, don’t get me wrong…La-Z-Boy still has those amazing recliners, but they have so much more now!
Here is our completed, updated, modernized family room! I love it! It’s peaceful, calming, and full of life all at the same time! We do still have a few things to get, but for the most part it’s complete. I am desperately wishing we had gotten the Metro Ottoman that went with the chair so I can put my tired, swollen (preggo mama) feet up after a long day! haha! It is definitely on our list of things to add to our new family room. We also need to get a few end tables and that will complete our look! We decided against a traditional “coffee” table with two toddlers and a baby on the way, we’d rather keep out the potential danger (of falling into corners or tripping near the table) for now.
We did custom order the furniture so it took about 6 weeks to come in. We also got new carpet and had the walls painted (which was another delay) but finally…it came together and we have the modern furniture and look that we love in our family room. This furniture is the absolute most comfortable furniture I have ever had the pleasure of sitting on. It’s soft and cozy and easy to get comfortable on! We’ve been sitting on the furniture daily now for many weeks and we’ve not noticed ANY flattening of the cushions. They are still as plump and soft as they were the day we got it! <3
We also got the stain protectant on the furniture (of course we needed that with little ones!) and we’ve already experienced some “oopsies”! I am not sure what we got on the chair, but I do know it was easy to get off! I simply took a damp cloth and wiped it right off and it was clean again! I feel great knowing that not only does our remodeled family room look wonderful, but we don’t have to worry so much about the “what ifs” because the La-Z-Boy protectant is amazing!
With one of the best furniture warranties in the industry, La-Z-Boy definitely stands behind their products. Not only is their warranty pretty darn impressive, but I was amazed at their modern furniture designs and their wide selection and choices. If you are in the metro Detroit area, be sure to check out their new locations: Sterling Heights, Novi and soon Troy! If you aren’t near these locations, be sure to check out their store locator to find a store near you!
