Relaxed Seating

27 December 2022

Relaxing is an important function of our living spaces, sometimes forgotten while we emphasise personality or aesthetic. With clever and intelligent interior design, comfort needn't be compromised. A classic piece of furniture that can really allow you to sit back and relax is the recliner, so here we’ve identified some contemporary chair designs that bring this function into the 21st century.

The Isa Relax Armchair by Sits is a bold and unique design with a distinctive headrest profile and a slimline backrest that can be tilted for comfort. The chair comes with either a swivel or fixed base depending on your needs and has the option of an electric or manual reclining function, allowing you to truly create your ultimate sitting experience. Add an optional footrest for a really ‘laid back’ reclining position. The Stefani Armchair by Sits is a more retro style that also offers a manual reclining option to its backrest when selected with a swivel base — so that you can truly curl up in its cocooning upholstered seat and armrests.

You can explore a reclining option with dining room chairs too, as many designs now come with a flexible back allowing you to lean back and relax between courses. The Sofia Chair by Bontempi Casa is a striking padded dining chair available in a low and high back style to suit your comfort needs, or for a more understated look the Tai Chair and the Malik Chair by Bontempi Casa both offer sleek frames with high back seats. All these options have flexible back options giving you the comfort you need to complement your dining experience.

Ending our relaxing design curation is a bold and striking design. The Casanova Chaise by Cattelan Italia features a swivelling and adjustable S-shaped seat with a black or satin finish steel frame. Available in a selection of leathers and finishes, the chaise almost fully extends, resembling a reclining therapy chair. 

Extending your chair options to include a reclining feature not only creates a relaxing and comfortable functionality for you, it adds a playful hidden design element for your guests too.
