Scandi design
Scandinavian design is inspired by the interior trends of Nordic countries Denmark, Norway and Sweden. It flourished around the 1950s which is why you’ll find plenty of mid century modern Scandinavian armchairs in our selection.

The hallmarks of the Scandi aesthetic are clean lines, high functionality and a clutter free space. Natural materials such as wood, leather and wool are mainly used. The colour palette features lots of white and light colours, plus accents of colour. Natural shades, neutral pinks, icy blues, dark and moss greens, and dark blues may all appear.

These light chairs perfectly capture this minimalist style, with slim, straight legs and arms. Some have a metal frame for more of an industrial inspired look. While others have painted wood sections, creating a two tone finish. Love an afternoon nap? Take a siesta on a leather button back lounge chair – some even have accompanying footstools to rest your weary legs.

Top-quality materials
Teak, oak, beech and rosewood. Only the finest woods are used in our selection of Scandinavian modern armchairs. These are polished to create a pristine finish. And padded backs and seats are created in soft fabrics to make them feel extra comfy.

Harness modern Nordic design with our gorgeous armchairs. Love books? Why not create a reading area by pairing one of these beautiful chairs with some matching Scandinavian modern lighting from our selection? Finish off the look with a Scandinavian rug in wool or cotton. Love the Nordic vibe? See our full range of vintage Scandinavian furniture for more inspiration.

Mid century modern Scandinavian armchairs
Our collection features plenty of designer chairs that make excellent collectors’ items. As well as being wonderful additions to your living space or bedroom. With Scandi interiors, it’s all about creating a simple looking space with one or two iconic pieces of furniture. Rather than filling it with lots of stuff.

Let work by mid century Danish designers Niels Møller and Ole Wanscher take centre stage in your living space. Or something by Hans J Wegner, named the master of Danish chair design. Other designers to look out for are Poles Edmund Homa and Zenon Bączyk, and the Finn Alvar Aalto.
