Who doesn’t love the idea of a big comfy chair nestled into the corner of their bedroom? A cosy nook. The perfect reading spot. The ideal place for a midnight tipple before rolling into bed…
In reality, we are fully aware how quickly a chair can become a repository for clothes and various bits of clutter, but we promise that if you chose one of these gorgeous bedroom chairs, you will never want to cover it with last night's potential outfit choices again.
1. Go for a luxurious feel with velvet
As you are probably aware we are partial to anything velvet. Velvet sofas, velvet ottomans and of course, a velvet cocktail chair. We love this luxurious mustard yellow, wingbacked Archie armchair from Atkin and Thyme. The button back creates a classic look that would look perfect in a traditional bedroom but those gorgeous Scandi-style legs give it a modern edge.
2. Add texture with an unusual fabric
How cute is this Ziggy Cloud chair from Audenza? Its soft curly fabric would add a ton of texture and interest to a bedroom but its simple style means it wouldn’t dominate the room.
3. Keep it simple with a Scandi style
Inject some Mid-century vibes into your bedroom with this elegant, Scandi-style chair. The Bestman armchair from Out & Out, with its unusual metal legs and base is a twist on the traditional tub chair and would fit perfect in a contemporary bedroom.

4. Choose an on-trend rattan rocking chair
We are all aware that a '70s bohemian vibe has been infiltrating interior decor lately. Macrame wall hangings, wicker furniture and house plants galore. Embrace this trend and add a laid-back feel to your bedroom with this natural rattan rocking chair from Out There Interiors.
5. Prefer a traditional bedroom style?
Do you even really need a bed when bedroom chairs come as soft and deep as the Petersham armchair from The White Company? If you have the space for a large marshmallow of a seat then we say go for it.
6. Get a retro vibe with a cocktail chair
More velvet. But we just can’t get enough of velvet upholstery paired with the retro shape of the Hudson armchair from M&S. Plus you can choose from over 100 different finishes, so you’re guaranteed to find something to suit your style.
7. Love Mid-century styles? Go for a sculptural design
We love the simplicity of this wishbone design from Rose & Grey. It’s such a classic that would look gorgeous as a bedroom chair with a sheepskin rug thrown over, but could work equally as well in a home office or even as a dining chair. Plus the compact footprint makes it perfect for smaller bedrooms.
8. Prioritise comfort with a cosy armchair
Surprise, surprise, even more velvet. But does it get any more luxurious than blush pink velvet? We especially love how it looks in this maximalist-style room mixed with the dark wood and brass accents of the Meghan armchair from John Lewis & Partners.
9. Opt for stripes for a classic touch
Ah, stripes. If you love a classic scheme, you can't do better than a striped slipper chair (yes, that’s a thing). The Madeline chair from Neptune is perfect for adding softness to the corner of a bedroom; team it with the Olivia headboard to complete the look.
10. Add colour to a neutral scheme
As the name would suggest, the Munchkin chair from Loaf is on the smaller side, perfect if you are working with a smaller bedroom. The chair pictured below is upholstered in Azure plush velvet (what else?) but you can choose from over 150 fabrics and finishes.
