Armchair thrillers – settle back at Christmas with one of these furniture ideas

Posted 7 December 2015 by Keith Osborne

WhatHouse?'s interiors guru Richenda Oldham takes a look at some of the most stylish armchairs to suit your home...

With the evenings starting to draw in, nothing beats sinking into a cosy armchair in front of a roaring fire. Richenda Oldham picks her five favourites.     



1 Inspired by a 19th Century Swedish design, the Sark armchair is upholstered in a rich golden velvet - aptly named Sunshine, £620, 

2 The Egg Chair is an iconic design that combines outstanding comfort and functionality with artistic flair, £731, 

3 Swoon Editions Carnaby armchair pays homage to the 1951 Festival of Britain with its hand-drawn effect abstract upholstery fabric and sculpted frame, £449, 

4 The Grace armchair is a deceptively simple piece, which looks good yet is perfect for relaxing in. Shown here upholstered in a grey chenille fabric, £349, 

5 A delicate floral print in water colour effect colours enhances the Lausanne armchair's classic shape, £349,
