1950s-style Tom Collins armchair at Sofa Workshop


If it looks like an original midcentury design, that's because this Tom Collins armchair at Sofa Workshop is based on a vintage original.

The name Tom Collins is inspired by the classic gin based cocktail, which was all the rage in the 1950s - when the chair this is based on first made its debut. Love the hugh back, the sloping sides and the contrasting wooden legs.

Don't get too hung up on the fabrics, as there are thousands of options to choose from. All the chairs have some things in common though, a 10 year frame guarantee, a foam seat with fibre wrap and a fixed back.

Prices start at £900 if you want one.
