Top 10 Lounge Chairs
Since the lounge is where we spend the majority of our time relaxing in the home, it is important that the furnishings are stylish, robust and most importantly of all, comfortable.
From iconic design classics to the innovative and contemporary, we have selected our top 10 lounge chairs available at Nest.co.uk based on a number of different factors. Whether you are after maximum comfort or a striking and intriguing design, we have the ideal lounge chair for you within our extensive collection.
Swedese Lamino Easy Chair – the looks are deceptive
At first glance, the Swedese Lamino Easy Chair doesn’t appear to be the most comfortable lounge chair in the world thanks to its lack of cushioning. However, the Lamino always surprises visitors to our Sheffield-based showroom when they take a seat! With a simple and elegant design and soft Skandilock Australian Sheepskin upholstery, the Lamino is a beautiful and well-loved piece by Swedese’s founder Yngve Ekström. The Off White version is our personal favourite, which can be complimented with a textured or patterned cushion.
Vitra Eames Lounge Chair – a forever classic
We couldn’t forget this well-renowned design classic from 1956 by the legendary design duo Charles and Ray Eames. Sturdy, soft and roomy, the Eames Lounge Chair is the perfect choice for maximum comfort. The chair also has an executive feel to it, which gives it a sense of importance.
Modus Part Armchair – contemporary with a twist
This simple and contemporary design by Modus is one of our favourites here at Nest.co.uk. Its chunky and uncomplicated structure makes this high-quality product a suitable choice for comfort. The crimson red feet add a quirky touch to an otherwise conventional design.
Zanotta 888 Gilda Armchair – adaptable for you
Dynamic and functional, this attractive lounge chair can be adjusted into four different positions for optimum comfort. The structure is made from oak-stained ash, for a traditional and understated appearance.
Fritz Hansen Ro Easy Chair Wooden Base – new love
‘Ro’ means ‘tranquillity’ in Danish, which is what the designer Jaime Hayon has tried to capture with this lounge chair. The arched back of the Fritz Hansen Ro Easy Chair is almost regal-like and allows for people to relax in their own private space. The Ro Chair was also designed to fit a parent and a child, which makes it ideal for a family environment. Available in subtle pink and light grey with a delicate wooden base.
Hay About a Lounge Chair Low AAL82 – 4 Leg Base in Light Grey – Scandinavian simplicity
The smooth contours and simplicity of this design makes the Hay About a Lounge Chair a perfect choice for elegance and style. Combining form, function and comfort, the chair is practical as well as minimalist and aesthetically pleasing. We particularly love the Divina Melange Fabric in Light Grey, although the chair is also available in a Steelcut Trio Fabric in a variety of subtle autumn colours.
Onecollection Finn Juhl 45 Armchair – craftsmanship
Designed in 1945, the 45 Chair was one of the first chairs to free the seat and back from the frame. Iconic and simple, with a rich walnut base and traditional frames, the Onecollection Finn Juhl 45 Armchair is an ideal choice for sophistication in the lounge. We love the smooth and almost chocolate-like appearance of the chair’s frames.
For the WOW factor
Arper Leaf Lounge Chair – organic elegance
It may not appear particularly comfortable, but the Arper Leaf Lounge Chair is full of surprises. The Leaf collection was designed under the notion that leaves are both nostalgic and forward-thinking. With subtle hints that demonstrate the irregular principles of nature, the versatile Leaf lounge chair tells a story, as well as looking beautiful. The Mocha Lacquered Steel version would be ideal in both indoor and outdoor environments. Be sure to purchase with the Arper Leaf Lounge Chair Seat Cushion.
Moroso Paper Planes High Armchair – it’s all in the detail
Inspired by the simplest form of origami and graph paper, the Moroso Paper Planes High Armchair is both a functional and extravagant design. Although the Paper Planes armchair has a thin fold-like structure, it is surprisingly strong and comfortable. We particularly love the Blue Crystal/Yellow version, which is reminiscent of the 90s contrasting geometric designs.
Carl Hansen CH07 Shell Chair Oiled Oak – it will never age
A famous design classic, the Carl Hansen CH07 Shell Chair is a minimalistic and iconic lounge chair with a unique three-legged triangular base. Having recently celebrated its 50th birthday, the Shell Chair is evidently timeless and a design favourite for comfort and durability. We love this lounge chair due to the fact it can be adapted into both traditional and contemporary environments and comes in a variety of fabrics and finishes.
