Comfortable armchair hand made in a choice of upholstery fabrics

When choosing your retro armchair, the upholstery fabric you choose is especially important. Whilst velvet is still the most popular choice, it is worth considering flat weaves and wool-look fabrics. All offer something different and unique for your interior. The most important thing is to focus on is the properties of the material from which the armchair is made. It is important it has good abrasion resistance, as this is what will keep your chair looking good for a long time. Think about where it will sit in your room – does it gets lots of natural light? Looking at fabric swatches first and considering them in your own home before making your decision, is vital to ensure you make the right choice. If you have pets at home, the more vulnerable your furniture can be to damage. Our fabrics are of the highest quality and whilst no fabric will withstand the most determined of destructive pets, the materials we use are high quality and perform really well. Some of our chairs feature exquisite detailing such as decorative stitching, button back and piping. These additional features further enhance the armchairs visual appeal.

Mid-century style armchairs

Retro armchairs are often inspired by the mid-century styles, which covers the period from the 1930’s to the 1960’s. This was a period when design was key but without compromising on comfort. The Scandinavian classics are perfect examples of this and offer a well-shaped, wide seat often with wooden details, such as the arms, legs, or frame. The height of the arm rests is well considered too, to offer greater comfort and support. A retro style armchair offers timeless design, which is one of the reasons they continue to be extremely popular in recent years. In an uncertain climate it is natural to look for the reassurance of the familiar.
