Vintage Armchairs

The humble armchair is one of the most iconic pieces of home furniture ever made. The armchair has been gracing our homes for centuries and is still as loved today as it was way, way back in the 16th Century. Whilst modern designs have their place, we think there is just simply nothing better than a classic vintage armchair and even better, a preloved armchair.

Our collection of vintage armchairs has been carefully chosen by our team of experts with an eye for some serious style. You’ll find beautiful reupholstered pieces, as well as some completely original second-hand armchairs, each with a fascinating story to tell. Make a vintage leather armchair the centrepiece of your living room or buy a set of old armchairs to create a cosy atmosphere around the fireplace. Whatever look you’re recreating, we have all the options (and then some) to help you choose the perfect piece for you. All of our vintage armchairs are offered by the small boutiques we partner with, so you can rest assured knowing that you’re getting the best price and quality from expert local businesses.
