Looking to elevate your living or outdoor area? Cue armchairs, the ultimate statement piece you need to update your home. Armchairs are the perfect item to create a focal point in any room.

Also known as occasional chairs, a striking armchair can instantly bring your space to life. Not only will an armchair inject vibrancy, but it can virtually be placed in almost any room in the house. Whether it’s a twin set to add in the living room or to fill that empty space in your bedroom, choose an armchair that incorporates both avant-garde style and comfort.

Armchairs are ideal for those early mornings where you want to relax for a quick minute, with your coffee in tow. Add a single armchair to a corner nook and create the perfect space to cozy up and read your favourite novel. If you’re expecting a little one, a plush rocking armchair is a must-have addition to any nursery.

Better still, decorating an armchair is simple and takes little effort. Place a small side table beside your armchair, stacked with coffee table books and topped with a sculptural vase filled with your favourite flowers. Alternatively, you can add a throw onto your armchair not only for style but for convenience when the temperature drops.

Whether it’s on trend white boucle and sophisticated velvet for your living room or light linen and mid-century rattan perfect for outdoors and warm weather, there are a variety of armchairs in various styles and finishes to suit your interior or outdoor décor. You can opt for a classic, minimalist style or step outside the boundaries and try bright colours or edgy silhouettes. You’ll find options that can swivel to effortlessly turn while seated or low to the ground armchairs for a modern flair.

Offering style and comfort, we’ve selected a few options to help inspire you on your search for the perfect armchair.
