Sizes & Dimensions

As previously mentioned, the Leah Twin Sleep Chair has a small footprint, making it ideal for smaller spaces. As a chair & a half, the width of the seat still offers spacious comfort. 

With a narrow arm, deep seat, and high back, Magaly says “the size of the Leah Chair is phenomenal” as it provides comfort while being able to fit into small spaces. 

Keep in mind that the size of the Leah Chair will expand once transformed into a Twin bed. 

With a general idea of the size of the Leah Chair, it is still crucial to measure your room in order to ensure that it will fit comfortably in your space, both in the shape of a chair and bed. 

Moreover, it is important to consider how the Leah Twin Sleep Chair will support your unique body type in the upright position. Generally speaking, the size of the Leah Chair is recommended to those between the height of 5’10” to 6’2”. 

The best way to be sure that the Leah Twin Sleep Chair offers the comfort and support that you are looking for is to visit a La-Z-Boy showroom and try it out for yourself. A design consultant will help you perform a sit test to ensure the sofa fit is right for your unique body type

Is the Leah Twin Sleep Chair Right for You?

According to Magaly, the Leah Twin Sleep Chair is perfect for someone looking to turn a second or third bedroom into a multifunctional TV room, den, or office. 

Given the small footprint of the Leah Chair, it can fit into a spare room. Further, the dimensions of the Leah Chair are ideal for a person between the height of 5’10” and 6’2” when seated in an upright position.

But let’s not forget Leah’s versatility! The Leah Twin Sleep Chair can quickly turn into a sleeping space for a guest pulling out into a single bed. 

With this, the Leah Twin Sleep Chair is ideal for someone who will host the occasional guest. If they plan on hosting more than one occasional guest, the Leah Twin Sleep Chair mattress may be too small, and instead, they may prefer a sleep sofa. 

In terms of style, Magaly says the Leah Chair can fit seamlessly with many styles and furniture arrangements, making it an easy addition to any space. 

Finally, the Leah Twin Sleep Chair falls within the mid price range at La-Z-Boy. With this, the Leah Chair is the right choice for someone looking to make an investment in a quality, comfortable, and multi-functional piece of furniture that will last them years to come. 

Furniture Family (Other Available Frames)

At La-Z-Boy, many furniture models are available in multiple frame options. When it comes to a sleeper, varying frames offer different sized mattress options.
