You won’t regret buying this chair.

You’ll Slip into an ergonomic and comfort nirvana when you sit in this chair. The advanced and intelligent foam padding technology gives extra support and have the signature level of comfort you would expect in any La-Z-Boy product.

Integrated Lumbar Support and Headrest

This beauty of an office chair also comes with a built in lumbar support that is designed alleviate pressure from long hours of sitting. If it’s one thing this chair was designed to do – it was designed to sit in for extended periods of time. On top of the lumbar support, the Lazy Boy Hyland Executive also sports a built in headrest to prevent slouching and promote a healthy spine.


Waterfall Seat Edge

The Hyland also comes with a waterfall seat edge feature that promotes good circulation. Ever fall asleep or get groggy after a long period if sitting? Chances are you’re blood isn’t flowing as it should, which in turn can cause fatigue. The Waterfall seat edge is designed to promote healthy blood flow that results in potentially becoming more alert throughout the day.

High Style Design

On top of all the comfort features, the  La-Z-Boy office Hyland Executive chair also boasts an executive design. It’s styled with a classic color scheme and even has rich and elegantly finished wood arms. You’ll give off the appeal that you’re in charge with this office chair. Plus, you don’t have to worry about compromising comfort and ergonomic support like you would with other executive chairs. Overall, the Hyland Executive is one of our favorites when it comes to design.

Materials Used

The entirety of the chair is fitted with a smooth bonded leather. While bonded leather isn’t the most top-notch material and can vary in quality, the bonded leather used to fit the Hyland Executive is more on the high end. It is smooth to the touch and with the Air Lumbar technology, the back of the chair is more breathable than most other chairs made with the same material.

We will be frank though, bonded leather isn’t the best leather out there. Most chairs in this price range are either made from bonded leather or genuine leather. Our candid opinion is that this chair very may well be fitted with genuine leather because it’s hard to tell the difference. Good quality bonded leather can be very similar to sub-par quality genuine leather. Want to learn more about the differences between the two? Check out our ultimate leather guide.


Pivoting AIR Lumbar

This is the team favorite feature of the Hyland Executive – the Pivoting AIR Lumbar mechanism. The lumbar support seat back pivots and adjusts to fit your exact posture which in return reduces the stressful pressure sitting can have on your back. Additionally, it is meant to give the lower lumbar back area support that many standard chairs fail to give. This feature is La-Z-Boy’s answer to a pretty big problem that comes with prolonged sitting: back pain. It helps reduce back pain and relieve stress on the lumbar area. Those with a bad back should only consider chairs with this type of technology.

Lifetime Value and Warranty Information

As stated before, La-Z-Boy is a company that stands behind their products and they are constructed with quality craftsmanship. Our two cents on the Hyland Executive Office Chair is that it is built to last for a long time. Not quite sold on the longevity potential of this beautiful La-Z-Boy masterpiece?

This might change your mind right now.

La-Z-Boy offers a 10 year limited warranty on their products. That’s how much the company believes that the furniture they build is of the utmost quality. Throughout our time reviewing office chairs and office furniture, this is one of the best warranties we’ve seen. Let’s face it – sometimes when you buy products, you risk getting a “lemon”, no matter what you’re purchasing. Not to say that you’ll get a lemon with any La-Z-Boy product, but on the off chance you do, rest assured that it’s covered for a long time.
