Romano retro-styled armchair at Darlings of Chelsea


A big and bold 60s-style seat that also ideal for the modern home – this Romano armchair at Darlings of Chelsea.

That big, square shape is created by a hardwood frame (which also comes with a lifetime guarantee), with support from a chrome swivel base and a covering in corduroy. If you don't like the latter, you can opt for any number of fabrics instead.

That upholstery does affect the price, but as a guide, prices start at £980.

Beatrix midcentury-style armchair by Conran


A modern-day midcentury gem from the hands of Sir Terence Conran – this Beatrix armchair.

Love the sloping back and (to a lesser extent in terms of angle) arms, along with the angled wood legs, with the retailer describing it as a 'relaxing chair that is perfect for curling up on with a good book'. I think we would agree with that.

You can customise the finished product with five leg stains and an incredible 91 fabrics and 23 leathers, all of which might alter the price one way or another. But as a guide, you can pick up the Beatrix from £850 right now.
