A classic black armchair is at home in almost any living, dining or relaxation space, adding practical seating and elegance. Black can work in virtually every style and with a huge colour palette, making it a timeless addition to your living room, study, bedroom or conservatory.
Whether it’s a mid-century modern design in chrome and leather or an opulent velvet tub chair, black armchairs and accent chairs look great in a huge range of design styles. This is great if you have already invested in a living room set but want to add some additional seating to your entertaining space, as there will be a black chair to go with almost all existing design and colour schemes.
Black armchairs can come in a wide range of materials, including velvet, leather, and boucle, as well as more generic fabrics. As well as the textile element, designs can also incorporate metal, wood, cane, rattan and more – again, depending on the design style of the chair.
Black armchairs can be a valuable addition to any living space. Black is a tone that works in most environments, offering classic elegance and flexibility of design. Black chairs and benches can be teamed with sofa suites, shelves, and tables in the living room, as well as dining benches, stools and bar stools in dining and entertaining spaces.
Think about the style of your existing furniture and try and choose a black armchair that works with this. Colour should not be too much of a problem as black goes with most other tones. For more advice about buying an armchair check out this guide to choosing the perfect armchair.
Seat heights normally vary between 40 and 51cm with overall heights depending on the style of the chair.
Standard armchair depths are usually at least 45cm. They can be deeper, but it can start to feel uncomfortable if they are too deep.
