The best armchairs for every home: our top eight favourites
When you’re furnishing your living room, a sofa is the key item you’ll want to consider and build the room around. It’s the largest piece of furniture in the sitting room, and the design of the sofa helps to define the look of your space. The sofa is generally the first piece of furniture you should choose for your living room, and then you’ll know how much space you have to work with for your other items, and what kind of decorating aesthetic you should opt for to complement it.
However, a great armchair is a key companion for additional seating and style, and the best armchairs are the ones that not only complement your sofa, but also add to the comfortable and stylish look and feel of the living room. Armchairs and accent chairs can also bring a cosy detail to a bedroom, or give you a comfy place to sit and think in your home office.
At Corcoran’s, we have the best armchairs and accent chairs for every home, from top manufacturers offering high-quality pieces in an array of styles. If you’re looking for the perfect armchair for your home, we’ve gathered a list of eight of our favourites right now to help you choose.
