Advantages of a Leather Armchair

There's nothing quite like a leather armchair to impart sophistication to your living room. You can also place a leather chair in your bedroom or even the home office. Pottery Barn has an array of leather chairs in various styles and colors, so it's easy to find one that coordinates with your furnishings and color scheme.

Choosing a Leather Armchair

There are no rules when it comes to selecting a leather chair. These chairs work with every design style, whether your preferred look is traditional, country-inspired, mid-century modern or glam. The following guidelines may be helpful when shopping:

  • If you're looking to fill a spacious room, an oversized armchair is a great choice. Look for wide, overstuffed chairs to make a large space look and feel cozier.
  • A swivel armchair is good for the living room or family room. The mobility of the chair lets you achieve the perfect angle for watching TV or reading.
  • For a comfortable place to relax and unwind, choose a reclining armchair. This type of chair sometimes includes a footrest that can be activated by a side lever on the chair.
  • Achieve an elegant look with a wingback chair, which has curved lines and a traditional look. This style of chair is versatile enough to be used at the dining table.
  • A leather rocking chair is another option that combines style and comfort. You'll find rocking chairs crafted from sturdy hardwood for impeccable durability and great looks.
  • If you like a chair with visual interest, look for a leather chair that has nailhead accents. This style of armchair looks stylish in a study but can be used in most any room.

Accent Pieces for Leather Chairs

Pottery Barn not only has a wide selection of leather chairs but also plenty of accent items. A side table makes a great accompaniment to one of these chairs, as it provides a place for a lamp and other items you need to keep nearby. A soft throw draped over the chair is another excellent accent, as it contrasts against the texture of the leather and imparts even more comfort.

Browse the selection at Pottery Barn to find the leather armchair that's right for your home. Whether you're looking for a traditional armchair or something more contemporary, there are plenty of options available. You'll also find all the other furnishings you need for a stylish home, including sofas, chairs and tables.
