Shop the Contemporary Armchairs Sourcebook

Browse our shoppable sourcebook of our favourite contemporary armchairs from the latest collections.

If you’re looking for a comfy, squishy armchair or snuggler for super-chilled relaxation sessions then we’ve found some real beauties for you.

Or maybe you want a comfortable, contemporary armchair that provides a little more structure and support. A modern take on the classic wingback chair will fit the bill perfectly.

You’ll find both of the above here in a range of up-to-date fabrics like wool, cotton, linen and velvet.

And let’s not forget classic leather. We’ve rounded up some extremely handsome contemporary leather armchairs too.

Accent chairs (also known as cocktail chairs) are perfect for smaller spaces such as bedrooms, hallways, small living rooms and reading nooks.

Team their streamlined silhouette with bold colour and pattern to create a stunning statement piece. Or opt instead for tranquil, muted shades for a more classic look.
