Don’t you just love that sinking feeling? No, notthatone… the one where you sink into your favourite armchair at the end of a long day. With Habitat’s collection of armchairs, you’ll fall in love time and time again.
When you’re buying an armchair online, there’s plenty to consider; colour, fabric, style, size… it’s hardly an off-the-cuff purchase. Lucky for you, we’ve got your back. Read on below for some quick pointers, or check out ourarmchair buying guidefor further assistance if you need it.
What armchair styles, materials and colours are available?
Whether you’re adding some convenient seating to a snug space, or you’re investing as part of a newsofa/armchair living room combo, our soft seating comes in a myriad of stylish designs, styles and colourways.
From the retro influenced Scandi vibes of Momo, to the contemporary design of Misty, there’s an armchair for every home. Tisno is a Habitat classic, available with a matchingFootstoolsfor unrivalled comfort and relaxation.
Design’s not the only consideration here though. We need to talk material. Leather armchairs are ideal companions for almost any space, and are easy to wipe clean – a saviour if you have young children. For a more classic look, a fabric option will give you years of comfortable seating. Sometimes, we love a good statement piece. If you do too, opt for an armchair upholstered in luxurious velvet or wool for a show-stopping addition to your room.
Next, it’s time to choose your colour. Naturals and neutrals are timeless, so our black, white, grey, cream and brown armchairs are ever popular. If you prefer a bolder option, our armchairs are also available in a spectrum of colours including yellow, green, blue, red, purple and orange. Some even come in multi-coloured designs with statement prints and patterns.
If you’re after something in particular, use the filters on this page to narrow your search and see only the chairs you’re interested in. If there’s no great rush, take your time and order some of our free fabric swatches; sometimes it helps to see the real thing, and this might help you get a feel for the material and colour, making the final decision that little bit easier.
How can you be sure your armchair will fit in your room?
The great thing about a nice armchair is that it’s not as big as a sofa, so size isn’t as much of an issue. Still, sizes do vary – both in terms of chairs and your room. So it’s always worth giving the intended space a measure to ensure your new piece will fit as it should.
For open spaces, this is less of an issue, but if it’s going into a compact apartment or snug corner, get the tape measure out. To make your life easier, you’ll find dimensions for all our armchairs on the product detail page.
If you’re going for the full lounging experience, remember to cater for a footstool or pouf, and leave enough space for walking around the room.
What happens after you order your new armchair?
Ordering large items online can sometimes be tricky, but we keep it easy for you. Once you’ve made your selection and added to your basket, simply follow our secure checkout process to complete your order.
We’ll be in touch soon to organise a convenient delivery date, and then you need not worry about a thing. Our team will take the armchair to a room of your choice, and you’ll soon be sinking into it for an hour, afternoon or evening of well-deserved relaxation.
How to accessorise your armchair
Whether it’s part of a new living room suite that includes a sofa, or you’re furnishing a cosy corner with a comfortable armchair and footstool, our range of accessories can complete the look. For additional cosiness (especially in those colder months), aThrowslung over the back or arm offers an effortless warmth.
Cushionsare tactical geniuses; layer them on to increase the comfort levels, and when the chair’s not in use, enjoy their charm as they bring colour and pattern to your space. You can also make a further statement of your armchair by placing the front legs over a HabitatRug– perfect for a cosy corner.
