Looking for a new armchair? Read our buying guide.


Whether you want more seating in your living room or a statement piece for your hallway, here’s a guide to finding the right armchair for your home.

Here are the key things to consider:


You’ll want to find an armchair that matches your home décor and existing furniture as well as your personal style. 

If you already have a patterned sofa or wallpaper which you intend to keep, choose an armchair in a plain fabric which matches the dominant colour of the pattern. If your existing furnishings are plain an armchair with a patterned fabric can add a new dimension. 

Most modern upholstery collections offer coordinating armchairs which make it easy to style an armchair with your sofa. 

We love the coordinating armchairs available in the Alstons Scandi inspired Stockholm range. The edgy swivel chair with its funky stainless steel arms creates a stunning look when combined with the simple geometric accent cushions on the sofa.


You’ll need to consider the size of your room and the space available. You don’t want to make your room feel cramped. 

A reclining armchair, such as the G Plan Washington recliner, is perfect for stretching out if you have space.








Above all, you want an armchair that’s going to be comfortable and suit its main purpose. We recommend testing different styles to see what suits you best.

If you’re looking for a cosy seat to watch TV and read in, a snuggler armchair is a good choice. 

The ercol Adrano snuggler is designed for style and relaxation with its deep and comfortable cushioning. 

A recliner armchair lets you adjust your seating style to suit your mood and give you optimum comfort.  

We have a range of armchairs to suit all styles and requirements. See the range here. We also have a limited selection of armchairs in our clearance sale.
