Practicality and comfort: Fabric collections including iClean will star in La-Z-Boy UK’s presence at MFS

Heated seats and easy-to-clean fabrics will be among the features taking centre stage at La-Z-Boy UK’s Manchester Furniture Show stand (Hall1/A50). The recliner brand will be showcasing nine collections including three new ranges, alongside the iClean fabric which repels spills before they turn into stains.

The three product debutants are Bella, Douglas and Broadley. Bella and Douglas have heated seats and are available with power recline, power headrests and lumbar support. They sport USB A+C charging ports and are available in a wide range of fabrics and leathers as chairs, two-seater and three-seater sofas. Broadley is a soft cover Made in Britain product that will be manufactured in La-Z-Boy UK’s factory in Colne, Lancashire.

The iClean fabric creates a barrier of protection repelling liquids, sauces and dirt including common stains like wine, coffee and salsa. Most spills can simply be blotted with a paper towel and it comes with a three-year warranty against a list of specified stains, including beer, coffee and ketchup.

While it has been designed with practicality in mind, the fabric has the quality and attention to detail seen across the existing offer, being soft to the touch with a luxurious feel. It is available in a selection of patterns and colourways across the La-Z-Boy UK collections.

The Morel fabric collection, available in nine colour options, will also debut at this year’s show, while retailers will also be able to see the expanded Calda leather collection, which gives customers more choice when it comes to selecting a durable leather at an affordable price.


Of the six existing upholstery collections – Mayfield, Dixie, Baxter, Williams, Lennox and Paris – Mayfield, Dixie and Williams were launched at the start of this year and Mayfield has heated seats and USB charging ports. Customers choosing Dixie can turn their sofa into a technology hub by adding a console unit. As well as offering handy storage, this includes Bluetooth speakers, wireless charging, cooling cup holders and discreet spotlights. Williams is a UK-manufactured product with a contemporary design including twin-needle stitch detailing. Customers can customise the product with a number of different seating combinations available, including a two-seater sofa with console unit.

Visitors to the La-Z-Boy UK stand will also be able to find out more about the brand’s Long Live the Lazy campaign, which aims to reclaim the word lazy as a positive and celebrate the importance of finding time to take a break and relax. The stand will showcase how collections might look in homes, with roomsets including accessories from Bluebone.

Melinda Whittington, La-Z-Boy president and ceo will be delivering a keynote speech at the Women in Furniture Network brunch on 11 July. She joined La-Z-Boy in 2018 as senior vice president and cfo before being promoted in 2021. She is a passionate supporter of the personal and professional development of women in the furniture industry and will be sharing her career insights at the event.
