The enduring appeal of mid-century Scandinavian seating is undeniable. It is clear to see why it’s so popular. With its rich colours and chic, sleek lines, Scandinavian furniture provides a masterclass in stellar interior design. Over the past few years, the style has become widely imitated on the high street, but at Vinterior, we believe it is important to retain what is special about original pieces of Scandinavian vintage – where functionality meets beauty and high quality materials meet excellent craftsmanship in durable, lasting furniture. Explore our collection of Scandinavian armchairs today.

Why choose Scandinavian armchairs

Scandinavian armchairs are chameleon-like in their ability to work within a range of different settings and décor styles. Whether you are looking for an accent piece, upholstered in luxurious velvet, or a muted, buttery leather option that quietly provides comfort and a sense of calm, there’s something for everyone in our collection. Your home may be a deliciously Nordic-inspired cosy cottage or a mid-century modern masterpiece, but however you choose to style your space, a touch of the Scandinavian will add the perfect finishing touch.

There are so many options to choose from when it comes to the appearance of your armchair, each one as lovely as the last. Typically, Scandinavian armchairs are not entirely enveloped in fabric or leather but instead show off the rich wood frame. This is evident in pieces such as a low-slung mid-century Krasna Jizba chair or a 1960s rosewood armchair.

One thing’s for certain, though: whether you opt for a wool, leather or velvet finish, or you choose to reupholster a vintage frame yourself in a fashionable, eye catching print, the high quality of design and materials invested in the body of the armchair is always assured.

Of course, an armchair is totally at home at the centre of any casual sitting room or elegant lounge, but don’t forget that they can also add much to the corner of a bedroom, study or nursery. And if you are lucky enough to have a spacious hallway, a well-positioned armchair provides a decadent and useful addition. Endless possibilities mean that Scandinavian armchairs are family heirlooms in the making - much loved items, expertly and ergonomically designed for home life.
