5 armchairs which will look amazing in any home

Sinking into a comfortable armchair at the end of a long day is one of life’s simple pleasures. Transform the favourite spot where you sit in your home in an instant and take a look at five of our top picks.
Design Inspiration

Our first choice is a chair that lives up to its name. The Drifter has deep foam cushioning that will support your body so well, you may find yourself, well, drifting off to sleep! On top is an equally soothing soft leather upholstery in a range of calming neutrals or mood-boosting bright colours. If you’re someone who constantly fidgets to find the best position, this could be the perfect choice for you. This recliner chair allows you to lie back to relax, read, listen to music or get 40 winks. It also swivels on its clever metal base so you can watch a film or TV without straining you neck.

Parker Knoll Froxfield Wing Chair

Wing chairs are a design classic that are both traditional and charming. If you love this style of chair, what could be better than one from a firm with more than a century in the furniture business? Parker Knoll has more than 130 years’ experience behind them and it shows in this Froxfield chair. Of such fine quality, it comes with its own 25-year frame and assembly guarantee so it’s a chair that will endure for generations. Perfect as a wedding present, imagine it being pictured in family photos for years to come from snaps of new babies cuddled in their mother’s arms to teenage kids flopping across it for a family photo.

Otto Loveseat

While it’s nice to have some time alone, sometimes only a seat with room for two will do. So, instead of squeezing onto a chair that’s too small or sprawling on the sofa, snuggle up on the Otto loveseat. You might not want to share the extra wide seat, of course, especially when it’s available in either firm or soft cushioning to suit your personal preference. There are plenty of options too in the finish, with a wide range of fabric colours and light or dark feet. You can also personalise this chair further with bolster or scatter cushions. As Goldilocks might say, this chair is not too hard, it’s not too soft, it not too big, and it’s not too small – it’s just right. ** Freja Anthracite Accent Chair**

We’re all different. So, while a plump cushion-filled squishy chair is heaven for someone, it’s hell for others. If you’re someone who prefers sitting with support rather than sinking into oblivion, the Freya Anthracite accent armchair could be for you. There’s enough quilting to help ease away the stresses and strains of the day but not so much you find you have to haul yourself out of it. When you’re not sitting it, it’s great to look at too, with its unusual dark colours and pattern screaming on-trend Scandi style. You can work on your laptop, eat your dinner or paint your nails in this chair – a contemporary design that suits modern living.

Westwood Leather Wing Chair

Can’t decide between leather or fabric chair upholstery? You can have both in this unusual choice by those clever Tetrad furniture designers. Made exclusively for Furniture Village by the prestigious British brand, you won’t find this chair anywhere else. The frame features gorgeous glossy brown leather, complemented beautifully by grey velvet on the sides and back and cream woven wool on the rest of the chair. Use it in front of a dressing table, in the living room, or hallway and expect to be asked where you got this lovely chair from plenty of times. An impeccable chair for those who appreciate something different.
