Statement Chairs and Armchairs


Why choose a chair? describes a chair as 'a comfortable chair, typically upholstered, with side supports for a person's arms', but it’s much more than just that. Your favourite chair can be the place you enjoy all to yourself - that means no more squashing up on the sofa with your friends, family or pets!

If you already have a sofa that you love, you might want to update your room by adding a new piece of furniture to shake things up a bit. A standout chair or armchair is the ideal solution - they offer an additional seating option, don't take up too much space, and can transform any room in an instant.


What style chair do I want?

Chairs have come a long way since the lumpy models you might remember your older relatives nodding off on after a big Sunday lunch. Modern armchairs come in a range of styles, from classic and chic, to trendy and minimalistic.

Best of all, your chair doesn't have to match your sofas. It’s common practice now to mix and match styles and colours - even choosing something completely different to what you already have. Read on to see some of the unique chairs we offer here at SofaSofa, and find a style that suits you…


Barolo Swivel Chair

The swivel chair in the Barolo range is upholstered in sumptuous, soft jumbo cord chenille, and not only looks good but it’s fun too! The foam seat cushion offers a sturdy sit, whilst the back cushions and scatter cushions are made from hollowfibre, so are lovely and soft to snuggle into. This is the perfect chair to curl up and read a book or watch a movie on, and if you've left the remote control on the table behind you fear not - you can just swivel around without having to leave your chair!

Grosvenor Slipper Chair

This is a beautifully classic, buttoned back chair fully upholstered in a linen look fabric. It has a moulded foam seat wrapped in duck feather casing, and would look great in any room as a stand-alone piece. Available in nine colours, there’s sure to be one that floats your boat.

Grosvenor Armchair

If the slipper chair isn't for you, the Grosvenor range also has an armchair with a buttoned back and arms and your choice of seat cushion filling – moulded foam, foam with a duck feather wrap, or 100% feather.

Marino Swivel Chair

If you’re after a contemporary leather chair, then the Marino swivel is the one for you. Hand-crafted and fully upholstered from 100% softgrain leather, this chair gives a sleek look, and would instantly up your style rating. A chrome base completes its modern feel, and if you like you can also add the Lounge Footstool for an added luxury.

Fully upholstered in a super-soft chenille damask, and with feature hard wood feet in a weathered oak finish, this chair would certainly make a statement in any room.

Monk Electric Recliner

Now this is a chair you won’t want to get out of! Fully upholstered in superior, antiqued leather, carefully rubbed back to highlight the appearance of ageing, the Monk recliner boasts good looks as well as comfort. With the press of a button you can be relaxing in no time, and as Puja Lalwani writes for Buzzle:

“Recliner chairs have come as a boon to everyone around, irrespective of their age group. By taking comfort to a whole new level, these chairs have also been developed to enable those who have mobility issues sit and get up better, and enhance posture. These are of a specific variety known as riser recliner chairs. Apart from all the health benefits that these provide, they are also luxuriously comfortable and available in a wide range of styles with different fabrics to match your personal taste as well as the décor of your home."

Windsor Chaise Longue

To add some va-va-voom to your room why not consider a Chaise Longue? It’s certainly a talking point and what's more, you’ll have a very chic and elegant space in which to lie down and relax. Available in either a stripe or floral design in five colours, it’s very versatile and would look fabulous in a large window setting – perfect for star gazing or watching the world go by.
