The contemporary armchair comes in many guises - however, an armchair provides a deep, comfortable seat, with a supportive backrest and armrests that envelop you, so that you can sit back and relax in its warm embrace... Suitable for many rooms of the house, a luxury armchair is a beautiful piece in the living room, bedroom, office or library. Often designed slightly lower to the ground, and with larger proportions than a dining chair, the addition of an armchair will create an easy and informal atmosphere.

Ranging greatly in style, modern armchairs can take on a more traditional silhouette, inspired by the details and designs of the past - or can be completely reimagined, formed from one curved, organic piece. A high backrest creates a strict and dramatic silhouette, whereas a low backrest invites you to use the piece in a less formal manner. Traditionally the seat of the chair is lifted from the floor, however many contemporary designs take the armchair off of the legs, placing it directly on the floor which further heightens the relaxed and casual feel.


An armchair with legs can seem lighter, as some negative space is introduced into the design. There are many designs that play around with the legs or frame - some have an elegant, cantilevered base, whilst others sit on a single leg that has been designed to have a highly sculptural look.


Choose a square or rounded overall shape, high or low backrest and a reclining or upright slant. Some luxury armchairs come with a sleek mechanism that allows the chair to be adjusted - and there is always the option of a rocking chair, which brings a touch of nostalgia to the piece… Some modern armchairs keep their rigorous, clean lines by excluding cushions - instead padding the structure itself for comfort - however, other designs come with additional back cushions for a more cozy, comfortable look. A feature that can be found on several high-backed styles is a counterbalanced neck roll, which is an addition that adds interest, and a designer touch, to an armchair.


The fabric that you choose for an armchair will greatly affect its look and feel - and there is a huge selection to choose from. Leather upholstery is a timeless classic that wears beautifully with age, it can be used in several ways, from a sleek, tight covering that shows off the line of the chair or with button-backed detailing and deep padding that is reminiscent of a Chesterfield sofa. Fabric is another popular choice for an armchair, as it offers many options for colour and texture. From plush, luxurious velvets that adds a decadent, tactile look to a whole array of fabrics, even including cashmere, it is possible to choose the finish that suits the style of the room.
