26 beautiful armchairs adding modern vibe to your home
What could be more inviting than a soft, reclining armchair hugging you after a long day at work? Armchairs have their own special place at home, but apart from their soft cushions that we can rest on, they can brighten up the décor and make it chic. These beautiful armchairs are made in the best traditions of modern design, so you expect simple lines, elegant curves and just a little bit of drama.
Beautiful leather armchair
If you’re thinking about creating modernist decor, consider incorporating leather into your interior. It is not only luxury, but with proper maintenance it can last forever.
Patricia Urquiola created this armchair as part of her Altay collection, which is characterized by solid beech in gloss black and full grain leather.
Paulo Mendes da Rocha transformed a simple chair into an elegant mix of armchair and lounge with a solid steel frame and a leather slip throughout.
Made in 1957, the chair is made of phosphated carbon steel, which oxidizes over time, and leather, which also ages. This creates a sense of evolving design. The seat is now also available in stainless steel, if you do not want additional maintenance.
Two of the most modern natural materials, leather and wood, meet in the NINNA armchair designed by Carlo Contin, who presented it at the Salone del Mobile in 2013.
His floating leather seat wraps around the rounded back, which also serves as armrests and brings with it a childhood memory.
Armada armchairs in leather meet refined chic made of leather and polished wood. In its exquisite frame, the armrests are also missing, so you have room for a book or a favorite device.
Armada is available in various wood variations and has a black and brown leather seat reminiscent of a lounge chair. Complemented with an ottoman, it becomes a sophisticated lounge chair.
Nice armchair with high backs
Modern, gorgeous and a bit dramatic, the Emma armchair by Färg & Blanche wood charms keeps us pausing every time we see the high hand-sewn back.
Tailored to impress, Emma can become your personal throne or a crown jewel of your establishment.
Brabbu make incredibly luxurious and surprisingly modern furniture. Her Sika armchair is an epitome of elegance and no wonder, because he was inspired by a sacred Japanese deer.
An ear seat is covered with leather and decorated with brass details and bangles that follow the stag antlers.
Like a classic lounge chair, the Ro is a perfect piece for any modern living room. Slender, winding and streamlined, it really symbolizes the calmness after which it was named (in Danish).
With its winged back and a deep seat, Ro is a nice compromise between modern and contemporary design.
Round back armchair
If you want to look a little more modern, Edam Swivel Chair by West Elm will definitely fit the bill. The slightly inclined frame is made of FSC-certified maple and the upholstery is almost limitless.
Sit back and enjoy a glass of your favorite spirit to an old song or just admire its chic silhouette and decorate an unpleasant corner of your living room.
Inspired by the unpredictability of nature, Rift is part of a futuristic, partially contemporary piece that looks pretty modern in leather look.
Rift is also available in a small version and resembles a series of fingers that embrace a blocky fit.
Without its patterned tube panels, this steam curved Targa chair would look pretty simple. It consists of a soft padded seat and a thin, shielded back and is clearly different from all other modern designs.
A patterned screen panel that emphasizes both the back and sides of the chair creates more privacy for a person sitting in it.
Wooden frame armchair
The Haverhill armchair by Anthropologie, which channels Danish mid-century designs, seeks to add glamor to any living room or other space in which it finds its place.
By combining refined materials such as oatmeal and conical brass accents, the seat brings a fascinating wooden frame shape.
The designer Jader Almeida creates elegant, exquisite furniture inspired by Scandinavian and Brazilian modernism.
Linna armchair is one of the designs that channels modernity through clean lines and simple shapes, but shows a large contemporaneity in sleek wooden construction, which is achieved through a state-of-the-art process.
Couture is an absolutely unique piece by Färg & Blanche that can do anything that its vision tells you to do. This modern armchair is a true masterpiece.
Layered pieces of dyed stitched wood create a beautiful ombre effect that resembles a wave or wave in the blue of the water.
The 60s inspired Hudson armchair comes with a few improvements that make it something special. Its polished brass legs give it an extra dose of glamor. And the curved wooden armrests give it a certain meaning and shape.
His pleated back deserves a side note, as he stands out in the sea of tufts and seams. The dyed leather versions benefit especially from these elegant details.
Small but nice armchair
Shaped like a mid-century modern Italian armchair, this tufted leather seat could be a special highlight in a modern home.
The simple armchair, which is dressed in velvet and linen, impresses with its numerous colors.
Another chair design by Patricia Urquiola comes in a form that looks like nothing we have ever seen. Its ribbed hood back provides privacy, while a curved seat gives the piece a playful flair.
A wooden frame looks different too. Each leg is at an angle creating a unique dynamic, especially in combination with these other elements.
With a round shape and a ribbed, stitched back the otherwise minimalist armchair Coupe looks very charming. Each leg is sewn separately and therefore resembles funny clown pants.
Coupe designed for OFFECCT looks intriguing from every angle. We could even argue that it looks a lot more from the back.
Embodying every aspect of modern design, Oliver Stuhl looks positively mid-century modern. Simple and inconspicuous, it is made for light upholstery or, if you want, you could choose it for playing a second flute in the decor.
It will not stand out much in a neutral color, but will be provided with comfort and functional modernist aesthetics.
Nice armchair with soft padding
Not all modern interiors are united in one style. So, if you’re looking for a modernized traditional armchair, Chester could be just what you need.
In a metal frame, the soft padding sits in a familiar pattern and looks generally recognizable. The modern part gives it a surprising aesthetic.
The Norwegian designer Andreas Engesvik has spiced up a lounge chair with oversized cushions and looks at what happened. A contemporary modern design is playful and inviting.

Sancal has come up with an armchair that stands out by reinterpreting classic designs and shapes regardless of color or finish.
These armchairs, mounted on a cage frame, are perfect for creating a breezy look that is also filled with comfort.
With its retro shapes and colors, the lobby is as soft as a stack of pillows and as bright as the art of the 60s. Extremely postmodern, it defies symmetry and has to stand out in extravagant décor.
While provoking conversations, Lobby looks very comfortable to dig after a long day or even take a quick nap.
Square armchairs that bring dynamic home
If you need something comfortable but also airy, Colony is a perfect representation of these two qualities. Although made of wood and rattan, it is spacious enough to accommodate some soft pillows.
Its angular pattern design is dynamic and functional. And his sky blue version is just too nice to throw away.
Another dynamic design comes from Sien Studio. 2R armchair looks something like a raw diamond with its angled and structured wooden frame.
The geometric silhouette of white oak is a welcome change from the soft curves and round backrests.
Beautiful velvet armchair for chic interiors
How about an original 1960 design? Scape is one of the most beautiful armchairs we have ever seen. Everything from its black wooden frame to the soft velvet cushions looks classy and more than pleasant for us.
Although the design is more than 50 years old, Scape easily fits in a modern room that combines modern elegance with the undeniable chic of velvet.
