Remember when La-Z-Boy used to be all about those big oafish recliners that big oafish men fell asleep in after drinking beer and watching sports?
Yes, so do I.
Which is why the non-reclining (and very cool) Keagan chair from La-Z-Boy is such a pleasant surprise.
It’s available in hundreds of fabrics and coverings, including leather, so whether you’re going for a basic look or hoping to shake up your room, you should be able to find something suitable.
The officially named Keagan Stationary Occasional Chair, with its wood arms and legs, is available in a number of upholstery options. Price starts at $859.

Imagine stumbling down to breakfast and seeing a table set with the colorful Hitchcock Field ceramic dinnerware from MacKenzie-Childs.
Suddenly, even the most mundane meal looks appealing. And your day is off to a great start.
Hand-crafted and hand-painted (on a farm in Aurora, N.Y.), no two pieces of MacKenzie-Childs are exactly the same. Which adds, a bit, to their appeal. And, perhaps, their cost.
Mugs are $64: dinner plates, $72; platters, $220; large serving bowls, $230; and everything else is priced in between.
Available at MacKenzie-Childs stores. To find one or shop on line: www.mackenziechilds.com . Also available at www.neimanmarcus.com .
Introducing Wine’O, the Streetwise Bottle Bag.
Kitschy? Of course!
But this wine bottle cozy, which is made to look like a paper bag, will keep your wine cool when you don’t have access to a refrigerator or ice.
It’s insulated, reusable, washable and made of super strong fabric.
By Fred, it’s $9.99 at Sur La Table stores. To find one or shop online: www.surlatable.com .
