Five of the Best Armchairs

Five of the Best Armchairs

A good armchair can make or break a living room. The best armchairs define a space whilst also providing the perfect place to settle down with a good book or the Sunday papers.

Here are five armchairs that caught our eye because of their stylish aesthetics, comfort credentials and nap-inducing powers.



The Bartolomew cocktail chair

Tap into the ombré trend with this original 1950’s cocktail chair re-upholstered in new linen. Not a fan of green? Not to worry, the Bartolomew chair comes in a range of different colours and patterns.

Who knew that a rich green velvet would work oh so perfectly with a walnut wood structure? We love the curvaceous shape of this chair and can imagine settling in for the night with a glass of whiskey and a good book.

A pair of Louis XVI style Bergere armchairs

With little change for five grand these armchairs are not for curling up on. This pair of exquisite Louis XVI style Bergere armchairs were made in the second half of the 19th century and are now upholstered in Serge Antique by Claremont.

It’s the detail and fineness of carving that has really captured our attention. We love the square backs with carved beading and palmettes and the acanthus leaf detail in the spiralling columns that support the arms.
