Retro Armchairs

Retro armchairs MADE modern

Early 20th-century design was all about opulence. Think angelic cherubs, window swags and gilded furniture and you're on the right lines. But, when the post-war years hit, furniture suddenly went all Copenhagen. Teak, curves and pared-back elegance coupled with bobbly fabrics and colour-blocked designs became all the rage. And we're here for it. So, we're bringing it back with retro armchairs featuring sweeping shapes, boucle materials and industrial-inspired metallic accents. Sound like your kind of thing? Have a scroll, you won't be disappointed.

A seat for any space

We love a retro armchair. And whether you want to bring some mid-century Scandi to your home or channel New York modernist style for an uptown vibe, we've got you covered. The devil's in the detail, so we've combined loads of metal in brass and copper tones to bring these vintage armchairs to life, as well as natural wood legs to make this look totally contemporary. If you're furnishing a WFH corner, why not team your new retro chair with a desk to build an attractive workspace? Add your laptop and an adjustable lamp, and you're all set.

Curvy looks, classic textiles

We put textiles front and centre when creating our retro armchairs. That's because mid-century design is as much about comfort as it is about style. Kicking back and relaxing is all about keeping cosy, and our fabrics are made to feel soft, comfortable and consistent with the vintage spirit. Explore bobbly boucle, faux sheepskin and plush velvet and find curvy models to sink into after a long day, all the while congratulating yourself on your great taste. If you're thinking of adding social seating into the mix, consider our range of sofas in complementary styles and fabrics.

Take the look to the max

If your heart's set on the styles of yesteryear, then why not take the look to the max? Retro-inspired bookcases and shelving units are the perfect places to store your favourite pieces from artworks to plant pots, so explore our designs and achieve a pulled-together appearance with our help. Or, team your armchair with a coffee table in a similar style. Whether you're enjoying a quick cuppa, or reading a novel accompanied by a glass of your favourite red, you'll know you've created a look your friends will envy.
