Yesterday a blog reader sent me a note with a picture of this chair.
I looked at that chair, I thought about my new rug. I think this would work! I love that chair and the legs match the breakfast room table legs. I thanked her, saved the photo and sent it to our local Lazy Boy store. The lady said “First, let me tell you . . it’s taking about two years to get a chair if we order it.” WHAT??
I said . . that’s ok . . would you please see if you can get a swatch of that fabric so I can make sure it will match?
Later in the day, I got an email from them saying the fabric is discontinued. I was so sad. I showed the picture to Vince and he liked it and agreed that it would be nice in that corner.
Two years to get a Lazy Boy chair! That just baffles me.

Oh, that makes me sad. Thar same picture pops up on my fb almost every day.
I just got a new chair for my stitching spot. You will want to sit in the chair before you purchase it. I went to a furniture store where they have many on display. There were only two that were comfortable for me. Luckily, one of the two that would work was in stock.
What a bummer! I really like this one, too! I wonder if you called around to some Lazy Boy stores if one might have one in stock?

Two years – yikes! One of my daughters bought a sofa and chair last fall, but had to order the chair. When it arrived a couple of weeks ago the chair is the wrong color. It’s WHITE, which isn’t terribly practical with little kids and big dogs. But the furniture company told them to just keep it and use while they wait for the grey one they ordered because it could be months before they get it.

Two years?! Who would wait that long for a chair? I’m thinking you buy the chair to go with the rest of your stuff and who knows how you’ll feel in 2 years time! I still haven’t been out shopping for a small recliner and was planning to hit up the lazyboy store but I can’t imagine waiting that long.

If you can find an old chair at a resale place or a chair you currently own, you can get it reupholstered in your choice of fabric.
We ordered our recliners in Nov 2020 and recieved them in May 2021 – one month earlier than anticipated. Another item we ordered we were assured we would have it in 6 weeks (ordered in Nov of 2020) and in May of 2021 we finally cancelled the order. Their stated issues were of course, and understandably, Covid….supply issues, increased orders because of people working on the homes during the enforced stay at home time (which resulted in larger than usual back orders), and Covid again. The sales people were almost as frustrated as we were – because they supposedly do not get their commissions until the sales are completed at time of delivery.
Still need to find some other piece of furniture but not sure I am up to the looking for it, making decisions, and then waiting…..
It’s been the same with our appliances and the furniture we ordered. We ordered our recliners in August, 2020 and got them in March or April, 2021. I would hate to think about trying to start from scratch with furniture and appliances. I think our wall oven is supposed to be here in September or October but nothing we’ve ordered came in when they first said it would.
I feel bad for the sales people because customers get angry with them and it certainly isn’t their fault. Like you said, they wish it was better too . . they’re missing out on commissions AND having to deal with grumpy customers.

Judy, now think about how much time it takes to make a chair. First you have to plant trees to get those wonderful legs. Then as you wait for them to mature you have to plant cotton and drill for oil to get the products neede for fabric. And finding the right loom to weave it on………..
It is like waiting for food at a restaurant,they had to go kill the cow to get the steak!
That’s how it seems these days. Fortunately for me, I don’t need a chair that badly. The steak . . that’s a different story! 🙂
We needed a new sofa a couple of months ago. After two disasters at a very large furniture store (both went back immediately as they BOTH were damaged) we found the furniture came from overseas which explained why they had those in stock. We then went to a very expensive store with lots of choices and found a leather sofa with recliners on each end, USA made. We didn’t want recliners, but it was a flexsteel frame and very top quality leather with a super warranty which we had extended. The recliners surprisingly has zero gravity reclining (feet above heart) and lumbar support controls with headrest controls — 3 motors for each recliner. We thought it was overkill as we only wanted a sofa, but we bought it. About 6 weeks later my husband fell and broke his ankle & now those zero gravity recliners are SO appreciated – plus he has serious back issues, where the lumbar support REALLY helps. It was 3 x the cost of a regular sofa, but we won’t need another sofa the rest of our lives now. Things happen for a reason, I guess!

I wonder if they might have this chair at a store location and they could ship it to you? This chair is perfect and would match the rug! Maybe some of us could look at our local stores where they sell Lazy Boys and see if it might be there. I don’t know how much the shipping would be though.
I don’t think shipping would be affordable. It’s a chair and an ottoman. Thanks for trying to think of a way though.
