Choose the right look and feel for you

It is important to find the right look and feel. Fabric armchairs come in a fibre mix for strength, texture, and durability. Microfibre upholstery is a sensible seating option if you have kids or pets as it can be wiped down with a damp cloth. Our magnetic velvet chairs will instantly draw guests in and elevate your space. All velvets show natural shading and work well in more formal interiors. Linen upholstery is very comfortable on the skin, easy to care for and is extremely versatile. A faux leather armchair is also a very flexible option, as you can choose between a vintage leather look or a smooth and soft leather finish. It comes with the bonus of being easy to care for as it can be wiped down. 


When purchasing an armchair, you should consider the overall style that you have in mind. Fabric lounge chairs are generally soft in line and come in wider range of colours – ideal for those wanting to add a pop of colour to an otherwise neutral room. Traditional armchairs are amazing for lounging with soft edges and upholstery. Contemporary arm chairs often have straight lines and coloured fabrics. RelaxHouse also has a selection of retro-inspired seats and modern seats that come in abstract shapes and bold colours. Whether you’re looking for a rustic farmhouse arm chair, a stylish Scandinavian-inspired chair that will bring a definitive air of warmth to a space, or a sophisticated faux leather seat, you’re sure to find the right piece at RelaxHouse.
