American Heritage


La-Z-Boy is proud of their American heritage. In 1928, the recliner was invented in Monroe, Michigan and the company was born. Their legacy of American ingenuity, drive and pride continues thanks to the thousands of men and women across the US who handcraft La-Z-Boy products everyday with American and imported parts. Headquartered in Monroe, MI, La-Z-Boy has plants or distribution centers in the following states, Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, California, Illinois, Maryland, Florida and Ohio.
