Make Your Choice

From high back lounge chairs to recliners, there are many different types of lounge chair to choose from for you and your home. Depending on the style of your interior or how you prefer to relax, some types of lounge chair may be more suitable for you than others and can completely change the look and feel of your interior.

High Back Lounge Chairs
High back lounge chairs are designed to give you that little bit of extra privacy without shutting you away from the surrounding space and often encourage better posture. There also tends to be something quite grand and luxurious about a high back lounge chair!

Statement Lounge Chairs
Whether the statement is made through colour, form, texture or pattern, a statement lounge chair is one that immediately captures your attention when entering a room.

Lounge Chairs with Ottomans
Many of our lounge chairs have an accompanying ottoman, which allows for that extra bit of relaxation and comfort. When you don’t wish to recline or stick your feet up, the ottomans can easily be stored away or used as additional low seating.

Consider Your Material
The majority of our lounge chairs come in a multitude of different materials to suit your interior style and tastes. Leather typically has a luxurious, executive or classic quality, whilst fabric tends to be warm and welcoming and plastic contemporary and simple.

Factors to Consider

As with any home purchase, it’s all too easy to fall in love with aesthetics without taking other factors into consideration. However, asking yourself a few quick questions will help to give you confidence in your decision and bring you one step closer to your dream purchase! Is the lounge chair suitable for your needs and requirements? Are you looking to make a statement with your lounge chair or choose something that will subtly complement your interior? Will the lounge chair work in the space that you have available?

Essentially all lounge chairs are designed for relaxing, so it makes sense that every lounge chair is made to be as comfortable as possible. However, comfort levels are also based on your own personal needs and requirements and what may feel comfortable to one person may not be as well suited to another. Thinking about how you usually prefer to sit and relax in a chair is just as important as considering its style.

Once you’ve made your purchase, it’s always worth taking the time to consider your surroundings and take any necessary precautions to keep your lounge chair in tiptop shape. For example, we all love our pets, but moulted dark fur never looks good on a light coloured chair! Finding the perfect throw to accompany your lounge chair or keeping it out of reach of your pets will save you unnecessary hassles along the way.

We hope these simple factors help to give you confidence in your purchase, without being taken as the be all and end all of your decision! If you truly love a piece of design, then follow your heart.

Caring For Your Lounge Chair

Once you’ve introduced your new lounge chair into your home, you’ll want to make sure that it continues to look as wonderful as when you first bought it. The following suggestions are recommended for general care, but for more specific instructions, please always refer to the manufacturer’s guidelines.

Direct sunlight or heat can cause minor fading to your upholstery, especially when it comes to materials such as cotton and linen. We all love to bask in the sun, but ensuring that your lounge chair isn’t exposed to sunlight when unnecessary is definitely well-worthwhile.

To avoid engrained stains or dulling, we recommend that you lightly brush or vacuum your lounge chair weekly. If you do accidentally stain the upholstery, then most materials can be wiped clean with a soft damp cloth, with the exception of delicate materials such as 100% soft wool. For leather lounge chairs, you can remove light scratches by gently buffing with a slightly damp cloth.
