We shed the limelight on six comfortable armchairs that also make for stylish additions to your living space

A fan of the elaborate and whimsical dresses that women would wear during the Elizabethan era? This armchair – romantically named Juliet – draws inspiration from the fashion that was prevalent during that historical period. The masterful stitching and embroidery by Italian furniture maker Poltrona Frau creates an aesthetic that’s reminiscent of the ruffling of women’s sleeves. Available in a passionate shade of red.
If you prefer sturdy structure over thick layers of fabric, you will love the Chom Chom armchair. Designed by award-winning architect and product designer Sean Dix, this piece of furniture is crafted from tubular steel and is incredibly durable. At the same time, the leather seat feature guarantees comfort. An exciting piece of trivia: the armchair was originally designed for a popular restaurant in Hong Kong of the same name.
Looking for a tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life? Just sink into the cosy comforts of the Moai chair. Conceptualised by Danish designer Philip Bro Ludvigsen, it’s inspired by the natural stones you can find rolling around the beach, reinforcing the chair’s function as an “unplugged” sanctuary. The elaborate shell-like form that surrounds you also makes it feel like you’re in a quiet room on four legs.
Big, bold and beautiful, Vast makes for a stunning statement piece that will get the luncheon and dinner party conversations started. Designed by furniture company Camerich, its solid birch seat and backrest with plywood reinforcements ensures sturdiness without compromising on comfort. The chair is available in leather or fabric and either complements its grey oak arms.
