HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sophisticated. Modern. Anything but ordinary. Those words precisely describe La-Z-Boy's new Urban Attitudes collection, which was just launched at High Point Market. The collection is more than a comprehensive line of premium-crafted sofas, chairs and accents. It's a vibe that's perfectly in sync with today's lifestyle.
"The clean simple lines and stand-out details fit the tastes of a more style-conscious demographic and their smaller urban living spaces," said Paula Hoyas, vice president of merchandising for La-Z-Boy. "Urban Attitudes is our most significant collection launch in over 10 years and it makes a bold, contemporary statement for our brand."
The Urban Attitudes line includes 10 new product offerings designed to create a modern living space that's chic and stylish, yet fun and functional. Each piece was named with an urban flare and the beautiful textures, rich colors and bold patterns on more than 100 specially selected fabrics help evoke the spirit of the collection.
With custom options like nail head trim, contrasting welts, feather accent pillows, optional wood finishes and a wide array of fabric and leather choices, consumers can easily create a look that reflects their unique personality and design sense with the Urban Attitudes collection.
Designed to be beautiful and stay that way, all of the Urban Attitudes sofas, loveseats and sectionals are handcrafted with La-Z-Boy premier construction including engineered frames for lasting durability, padded frames that enhance design lines, and premium ComfortCore® cushions.
