Which arm­chair?

Period Living - - Buying Upholstery -

Wing-back Pop­u­lar in the 1720s, wing-back chairs are at their best in front of a fire­place, where the over­sized ‘wings’ make the most of the heat of the fire and block out any un­wanted draughts.

TUB With a shape that is rem­i­nis­cent of loung­ing in the bath, the tub’s small stature makes it pop­u­lar for stud­ies and li­braries.

Bergère An or­nate French de­sign, the bergère is a beau­ti­ful ac­cent chair with a shapely form that draws the eye.

CLUB A per­fect liv­ing room chair, the iconic club fa­cil­i­tates con­ver­sa­tions and wel­comes longer pe­ri­ods of sit­ting.

Chaise Longue The ul­ti­mate in re­lax­ation, a chaise longue is the ideal mix of sofa and chair. To off­set its long style, it is best placed un­der­neath a win­dow or pic­ture frame. ➤
