Choosing The Best Armchair For You

Armchairs are usually available in at least 5 different styles, which vary on material used and the overall aesthetic, the main types of armchair are fabric armchairs, accent chairs, velvet armchairs, swivel chairs and leather chairs. 

  • Fabric armchairs usually add a pop of colour into your home and are the standard choice if you’re looking for a comfortable chair to fit in with your style. They consist of strong fibres which are easy to clean, so may be a sensible option if you have children or pets. A grey fabric chair is often a popular option as it easily goes with any colours present in the room.
  • Accent chairs are a favoured option with those trying to make a statement with their décor. These usually consist of bold colours or bright patterns to be the focal point of the room. For example, a yellow accent chair or a bold blue accent chair can help bring daring colours into the room. On top of this, accent chairs with arms offer both relaxation and support, so comfort is not compromised.
  • Velvet chairs are a suitable option for those looking to add a little luxury with their upholstered armchair. They have a distinctive look suitable for formal spaces, but are also kind to the skin due to the soft feel of velvet.
  • Leather armchairs are a smart option to add a little sophistication into your home. Not only this but it’s also easy to wipe down leather in case spills occur. Therefore, a leather chair may be a suitable option to those accident prone.
  • Finally swivel chairs can consist of fabric, velvet or leather, however with an additional function. They can rotate 360 degrees. This is ideal for home office spaces, or to have a little more comfort in front of the television.

Where Should My Chair Go? 

Armchairs are suitable for any room of the house. They work especially well in social areas, such as living rooms or conservatories. Accent chairs for living rooms are especially popular, as they add an abundance of style into a room which sees a lot of company.

The average armchair will vary from 70-100cm tall and be roughly 80-110cm wide. This is also important to take into account when deciding where your chair will go. Measure the space where you intend to place your chair and consider the distance from any surrounding furniture. Accent armchairs especially work well alone without surrounding furniture, due to their busy patterns.

At Furniture Barn, we offer a diverse range of customisable and comfortable chairs, so we are confident you will find the perfect addition for your room. However, if you need a little extra help, please contact our friendly sales team on 0333 200 1558.
