The Est Edit: Ultimate Armchairs

  • Bollo Fogia

    Setting the tone for the rest of the room, we consider the armchair a domestic throne that oversees the style of a space. Paying a visual tribute to both design and craftsmanship it’s one furniture piece that’s been edited and reinterpreted more times than we can count. However, one constant is its ability to provide a quiet moment by inviting a cosy warmth and relaxing intimacy. In Biasol’s Prahran Residence the armchair not only serves as a relaxing oasis for one, it echoes the overall design concept – refined Parisian chic with a modern spin.

    From functionality and comfort to the latest in technology and materials, the armchair is consistently being reinvented to accommodate our ever-changing lifestyles and is a gentle reminder for us to stop and smell the roses (or read a good book). From retail to boutique hotels, waiting rooms, living rooms and studies check out our contenders for the ultimate armchair below.

    Loafer Lounge Chair

    Arne Jacobsen’s iconic 1960’s SAS Royal Hotel has undergone a redesign and who better to commission a chair for this legendary interior than Space Copenhagen for &Tradition. The Loafer perfectly mimics the lobby’s spiral staircase and circular columns.

    Driven by the comfort of the sitter, the Bollo by Andreas Engesvik for Fogia is generously shaped by pillowy cushions that give the impression they’re oozing out over the slim metal base.

    Colonial Chair

    The Colonial Chair designed by Ole Wancher for Carl Hansen + Son is one well-crafted chair that only gets better with age. With a slender, and simple silhouette, the mix of leather and timber only makes it more elegant. Available at Cult.

    Togo Fireside Chair

    Ok, not an armchair as such, it’s still worth a mention. The iconic Togo Fireside Chair by Ligne Roset is an ergonomic design constructed from foam and quilted covers that ensure it is both visually attractive and physically inviting.

    Kelly Armchair

    Fully upholstered, Kelly’s soft, rounded lines flow seamlessly into tapered legs. A laid-back lounger, this relaxed chair from Jardan Furniture makes a modern addition to any home.

    The Ghost Armchair

    A longstanding favourite here at est, the Ghost Armchair designed by Paola Navone for Gervasoni is a timeless and cosy nook. We love the relaxed textile cover that makes a casual statement for simple comfort.

    637 Utrecht Chair

    Standing out for its radical design accents the 637 Utrecht Chair by Gerrit Rietveld for Cassina is one serious armchair. Recognised for its angular architecture it’s a real statement maker. Available at Space Furniture.

    Colony Armchair

    As seen in the Spotted Gum Northcote House the Colony Armchair by Skrivo for Miniforms is characterised by its snug, rattan-inspired structure. With playful, soft lines its main feature is its ability to be personalised by a range of colours.
