La-Z-Boy Incorporated (NYSE:LZB), the maker of the iconic reclining chairs, saw its stock decline after posting fiscal fourth-quarter results that fell short of expectations.

Same-store sales increased 8% at the company’s 139 locations included in last year’s fourth quarter. Though sales grew overall, revenue from its Upholstery department shrank 1.2% year-over-year to $323.3 million.

“We were pleased with the excellent sales and operating results for our company-owned Retail segment,” CEO and Chairman Kurt Darrow said. “However, sales declined in our wholesale Upholstery and Casegoods segments, consistent with a slow start to the calendar year across the North American retail home furnishings landscape.”
