At La-Z-Boy, weve been making history since 1927, and were just getting started. Weve grown from being the inventor of the worlds first reclining chair to becoming the worldwide leader in comfort, because at La-Z-Boy, we believe in living life comfortably. Our product line now includes a full line of comfort furniture, including recliners, reclining sofas and loveseats, stationary sofas and loveseats, stationary chairs, accents chairs, sectionals, sleepers, lift chairs, entertainment consoles, outdoor furniture, and occasional tables. Invention of the worlds most famous chair: the La-Z-Boy story. La-Z-Boy originated in a love of carpentry shared by two cousins, Edward Knabusch and Edwin Shoemaker, both of Monroe, Michigan. In the early 1920s, Knabusch was a carpenter at the Weis Manufacturing Company and spent his evenings repairing furniture as well as building novelty and custom furniture in a workshop set up in the family garage. Despite the fact that Shoemaker was being groomed by his father to take over the family farm, he was far more interested in carpentry and spent his free time in his cousin's new workshop. In 1925, Knabusch's hobby became a full-time business when he left Weis Manufacturing to start his own business, hiring Knabusch because of his engineering aptitude. By March 1927 the business had expanded far beyond any expectations shared by the two cousins. By the end of 1927, with the financial support of friends and family, a new factory was completed north of Monroe. Built in the middle of a cornfield that fronted a cow path, the site led many to say the two men were foolish to establish their factory so far from the city. However, their gamble paid off as the old cow path soon became M-24 (Telegraph Road), a major north-south Michigan artery. In 1928 they set out to design a chair for what they called "natures way of relaxing." Using orange crates to mock-up and refine their idea, they invented a wood-slat porch chair with a reclining mechanism. At the suggestion of a friend, Knabusch and Shoemaker then upholstered their innovation and marketed it as a year-round chair. To protect their new invention the men incorporated in 1929 as the Floral City Furniture Company. Through friends and family, the men raised $10,000 to secure the necessary patents and began production. The men attended their first furniture show in May 1929 and returned with more orders than they could fill. As their innovative recliner became increasingly popular, the need for a name became apparent. The partners held a public contest to name the recliner, and in November 1930, the winning name, La-Z-Boy, was trademarked, and the patent for the new mechanism was issued in January 1931. By the beginning of the 1960s, the company began a long-lived marketing campaign that used the support of such celebrities as Bing Crosby, Ed McMahon, Johnny Carson, Joe Nameth, Alex Karras, and most importantly, Jim Backus. Known for his role as the voice of the myopic cartoon character Mr. Magoo, Backus recorded more than 15,000 television and radio commercials for La-Z-Boy during the 1960s. In 1969, after years primarily as a manufacturer of recliners, La-Z-Boy started designing other products including reclining sofas, sleep sofas and modular groups. In 1983 La-Z-Boy introduced its first line of stationary sofas and occasional chairs, later offering a full line of home furnishings. Today La-Z-Boy is the most widely recognized home furnishings brand name in the world. Mathis Brothers carries La-Z-Boys complete line of home furnishings, all at our famous Double the Difference guaranteed lowest prices every day.
