Choosing Leather Armchairs

There’s something special about a big leather armchair. They scream opulence and style, and never seem to go out of fashion. Leather sofas have had a great resurgence of late, and the past couple of years has seen a flood of large chunky, square armchairs hit the furniture market in luxurious warm colours. It’s a clear step away from the bright, cool 60’s mod inspired leather sofas which have been making their mark since the 90s.

What colour leather armchair would you chose?

Depending on your home, choose the colour of your armchair accordingly. Modern homes look great with black, brighter red shades and white leather, whist more traditional or ‘country’ style homes suit the rich warm colours like browns, warm cherry reds and dark greens.

What style armchair would you chose?

The chunky square style armchairs may not go with everyone’s décor, but no doubt there is a different one to suit your home. The great thing about leather furniture is they really last. Leather is extremely durable and can take a lot of abuse from children and pets. Stains are less likely as you can wipe spills off immediately, and they look great with age.

If you’re looking for something lovely to curl up and read a book on this winter I’d thoroughly recommend one of the following brown leather armchairs.
