La-Z-Boy, a leading manufacturer of upholstered furniture, has announced the opening of a La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries® store in Glenview, Ill., located at 2830 Patriot Blvd. The store boasts the design-focused format of the company’s “new generation” stores, which help customers in every step of their furniture shopping and home decorating experience.
The new 17,500-square-foot store features the full selection of stylish La-Z-Boy® furniture, beautiful accent pieces, and a professionally staffed design center to help customers put it all together.
“La-Z-Boy furniture is known for its comfort, quality and style,” said Joe Browne, general manager of the La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries of Chicago. “From our design expertise to our stellar customer service, our store makes shopping for La-Z-Boy furniture easy and enjoyable.”
More Than Recliners La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries feature the entire selection of La-Z-Boy furniture offerings, including the company’s world-famous recliners, along with motion sofas,
sleep sofas, sectionals, stationary sofas and chairs, and leather upholstery. The stores also feature the Todd Oldham by La-Z-Boy collection, including furnishings for the living and family rooms that blend fashion with function, including upholstered pieces, occasional furniture and decorative accessories.
Organized in “galleries” – including a Living Room Gallery, Family Room Gallery, Sleep Sofa Gallery, Leather Gallery, and, of course, a Recliner Gallery – the furniture at La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries stores is displayed in vignettes complete with occasional and accent furnishings by La-Z-Boy subsidiaries, along with a dramatic selection of decorative accents, including lamps, area rugs, wall art and accessories, all available for sale.
Professional Design Assistance
Every La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries showroom is built around the La-Z-Boy Design Center, which is staffed by design consultants and was created to provide customers with inspiration, answers and helpful assistance.
Included in the design area is the interactive La-Z-Boy Screen Test® system, which allows customers to design their own furniture by rendering any La-Z-Boy product in their choice of hundreds of fabric and leather covers. For customers looking to shop in the convenience of their home, La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries also offer in-home design assistance.
“Each La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries, with its emphasis on design and style, exemplifies our direction for the future of La-Z-Boy,” said Steve Matlock, senior vice president of sales and marketing for La-Z-Boy. “We understand that customers want complete solutions for their homes, and this La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries provides that.”
To make the shopping experience more family-friendly, these stores feature a wide circular pathway for easy navigation for families with children and strollers. Eye-catching signage guides shoppers through the store, directing them to the various galleries and providing meaningful information along the way. And, there is even a fun, interactive and educational play station in the Design Center area to entertain young children while parents interact with the store design consultants to create the rooms of their dreams.
