WHAT IS AN ARMCHAIR?

Put simply, an armchair is a single seater with armrests. But it can be so much more than that. An armchair is a standout feature for your home, and an investment piece. With so many styles available at Peppermill Interiors, you can find an armchair to suit every room.

Typically, you may imagine an armchair to be large, brown and leather. Don’t get me wrong, we do have those. And whilst these more traditional armchairs are ideal for period or vintage style properties, we want to show the vast options on offer for a contemporary space.

  

Velvet made a comeback in 2017, and it looks like it’s here to stay. Our range of velvet armchairs and occasional chairs bring a touch of opulence to both modern and retro inspired interiors. For a statement piece, and a nod to mid-century style, our ‘Arlo’ velvet accent chair in burnt orange is a great choice. The ‘Chambery’ velvet armchair is another fantastic option, with its shimmery emerald upholstery making it a focal point in any room. If you like to keep your living room more understated, why not add it to a bedroom or dressing room for a pop of colour?


Armchairs aren’t exclusive to living rooms, either. Carver dining chairs are perfect for the heads of dining tables. Our ‘Chamonix’ carver chairs come in two varieties; the linen version comes in muted tones, whilst the velvet version is more vibrant. Style the ‘Chamonix’ carver chairs with the matching side chairs for a complete look.

We also have armchairs in our vintage seating range; our upholstered folding cinema chairs are a great way to bring colour and vintage style to your dining table. Our vintage range is constantly changing, and we have a steady stream of one-off, quirky vintage finds. Keep an eye on the coming soon and new in sections for rare items!

  

If classic is more your style, then we have plenty of vintage and Chesterfield style seats to suit you. We stock tan leather armchairs in various shapes and sizes, so whether you have a small cosy space or a large area to furnish, we’ve got something for you. Our traditional leather armchairs are ideal for period properties and homely cottages, the perfect place to enjoy a quiet moment to yourself.

  

Choose a tub chair for a modern touch; the tub chairs are slightly smaller than your average armchair, but still boast all the style. Our ‘Bavaria’ and ‘Granville’ tub chairs are upholstered in super soft velvet. The ‘Bavaria’ oozes retro style with its quilted design, whilst the ‘Granville’ plays to the current Scandinavian trend. If you prefer leather, or have an industrial style space, then you’ll love the ‘Valence’ with its black leather and silver stud detailing.

So, what is an armchair? The perfect accompaniment to a range of spaces. From the bold and colourful ‘Derry’, to the American car-seat style ‘Shard’, we have armchairs to suit your every need. Browse our seating section to make your armchair dreams come true.
