La-Z-Boy Southeast | April 30, 2020
Have you ever wondered exactly how is furniture made and what’s it built with?
At La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings & Décor, our furniture is proudly made in America with a variety of different materials and techniques.
In this article, we will answer the question “How is furniture made?” by taking an in-depth look at our process.
Start with the Frame
Putting together a strong frame is the first step in building quality furniture that will last a long time.
La-Z-Boy uses several different materials and techniques to build our frames.
- Solid Hardwood (Maple & Oak)
- Oriented Strand Board (OSB)
- Mortise and Tenon Joinery
- Lap-Joint Technology
This combination of hardwood, OSB, and joinery is the reason our frame is one of the strongest in the industry.
Pick Your Fabric
Once you’ve put together a solid base, it’s time to select your fabric and fasten it to your frame.
Most furniture is upholstered with fabrics like microfiber, cotton, or linen. You’ll also find faux or top-grain leather on recliners, chairs, and sofas.
The fabric you select serves three purposes:
- Bring style to your room.
- Protect your furniture.
- Keep your cushions in place.
At La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings & Décor, we have more than 900 different leathers and fabrics you can choose from.
This gives you the ability to create a custom piece of furniture that is specifically made for you.

Now that your furniture is built and upholstered, you’re ready to add the finishing touches.
