said the first Todd Oldham by La-Z-Boy store is opening Friday at 73 Wooster St. in New York City's SoHo neighborhood.
The Monroe, Mich., recliner maker said the opening marks the "first store solely dedicated to the wildly popular Todd Oldham by La-Z-Boy collection of sleek upholstery, distinctive occasionals and fashionable accessories, which was first introduced in October 2003."
Oldham added that "it's been a dream of mine to open a Todd Oldham by La-Z-Boy store that would showcase the collection's distinct style, depth and versatility." He said that "New York is the perfect home for La-Z-Boy's first Todd Oldham by La-Z-Boy store, because the collection truly speaks to the modern design tastes and unique space challenges of New Yorkers."
From the bentwood sensibilities of "Lina" and "Veronica" to the sleek, convertible designs of "Snap" and "Kate," the Todd Oldham by La-Z-Boy collection offers more than 30 upholstery frames, including sofas, recliners, chairs and ottomans, each available in more than 250 diverse, eye-catching textiles, the company said.
On Friday, La-Z-Boy rose 14 cents to $15.24.
