What to look for when buying an armchair

There’s plenty to consider when buying an armchair or fabric accent chair - like the fabrics you prefer, as well as style, shape, colour and any extra features you might want (like a recliner function). You’ll want to look for quality, touchably soft fabrics; comfortable seat cushions; and a sturdy, steady frame. Here at DFS, we’ve been making sofas and armchairs for over 50 years, so we know a thing or two about creating quality fabric armchairs, which is why we’re confident enough to offer 10 year guarantees on ours - but don’t just take our word for it. Pop into your local DFS store and try them out for yourself!

What is the most comfortable chair for back pain?

For those who suffer from back pain, we’d recommend a high back armchair (or fabric wingback chair) which gives you additional support not only in the back, but for your head, neck and shoulders too. You could also consider a fabric recliner chair, which can help you to achieve your ideal sitting position, and take the weight off your feet to boot.

What is the best colour for an armchair?

We offer many colour options within our fabric armchair ranges - because everyone likes something different! Some of the most popular options are cream and beige linen armchairs, and black and grey fabric chairs, but you can also mix it up with everything from green velvet armchairs to yellow chairs.

What finishing touches can I add to my armchair?

Our fabric armchairs look wonderful on their own, but if you want to take their look to the next level there’s plenty of options. A contrasting or matching scatter cushion never goes amiss, and a cosy rug is a great way to create a quiet corner with your armchair. You could also add a small lamp table and table lamp to complete your chillout zone.

Caring for your new fabric armchair

Caring for an upholstered armchair is pretty easy - you’ll mostly need to regularly plump the cushions, wipe the piece down with a dry cloth, and occasionally vacuum it with a soft brush attachment to take good care of it. Because there are so many fabric options available, all our fabric chairs come complete with specific care instructions to help you keep them looking their best, and for more advice, check out our upholstery care guide.
