Modernist Armchairs

Modernist design, by definition, aims to depart significantly from classical and traditional forms of the 19th century and earlier. Armchairs are one of the most long-standing pieces of furniture and Vinterior’s vintage experts have sourced the finest examples of modernist armchairs from across the U.K. and Europe.

From homely Knoll wingbacks that evoke feelings of warmth and nostalgia to ultra-stylish Hans Wegner chairs that broke the mould of furniture design, there’s a modernist chair to suit your taste, space, and budget right here.

With hundreds of modernist armchairs to peruse, it can be a little daunting to know where to start. Use the handy filter meu to the left to narrow your search by style, period, budget, material, brand and more. Shun the sameness and embrace the unique.
