Wonderful velvet armchairs
Velvet is a natural pick for seating because it combines great aesthetic appeal with a highly comfortable texture. Our velvet armchairs come in singles or pairs, with features for comfort including armrests, headrests and accompanying footstools. Some sit directly on the ground while others are raised with legs, or with wheels which make for easy transportation.

Look for special features such as button backs, printed fabrics and wingback styles. Need more seating? Don’t miss our range of vintage velvet sofas where you’ll find daybeds, love seats and corner sofas for your living space.

Velvet through the ages
Soft and cosy velvet can be traced back to Eastern cultures and was introduced to Europe along the Silk Road. Italy established the first velvet industry – and you’ll find lots of Italian velvet chairs in our range including beautiful mid century pieces by Ico Parisi, Paolo Buffa and Marco Zanuso.

Velvet has close ties with European nobility. And this is demonstrated in the regal styles in our range, including Regency, Victorian, Georgian and French Napoleon and Louis armchairs. These chairs are commonly made with dark, heavy woods like mahogany and rosewood. They may also include fringed skirting, cabriole legs, gilt and ornate carved wood.

Contrast armchairs in this opulent fabric with substantial furniture in natural materials. marble coffee tables and mahogany chests of drawers are the perfect accompaniments.

Vintage velvet armchairs for Scandi-inspired decor
Create a minimalist aesthetic for your home with a brightly coloured vintage velvet chair in a pared back style. Place an icy blue, moss green or neutral pink velvet armchair next to a light coloured wall for a beautifully bare look.

Scandi style furniture is all about simplicity, natural materials and clutter free spaces. So you don’t need much to create it – just a few good-quality pieces of furniture and a couple of pieces of modern artwork are a good start.
