Club Chair Buying Guide

To add some dimension to your living room or bedroom, consider a new club chair. They can be a comfy solo spot to read, or a group of them can become a conversation area, centered with a coffee table or ottoman. Before you search for a club chair, make sure you know how much space you have for it in your living area. If the chair you select is too big, it will obviously not fit very well, and if it’s too small, it will look awkward.

What is the difference between a club chair and an armchair? Basically, an armchair is always modeled to have arms. Club chairs don’t necessarily have come with arms; they can be armless or feature just one arm.

The following club chair buying guide will help you in your search for the perfect addition to your living space:

Formal Club Chairs

If you’ve got a traditional living room or bedroom, and you want a chair that’s a little more upscale, take a look at the following selections:

The traditional Queen Anne design of this Office Star Chair makes it a piece of art in itself. It also stands out with its red leather finish and espresso finished hardwood frame.

Microfiber Club Chair

For a true sense of comfort and tranquility, the Southern Enterprises Club Chair is upholstered in soft, smooth microfiber and stuffed with a padded pillow top for the comfiest seating spot.

Leather Club Chairs

Durable and classy, a high-quality leather club chair is a great investment for your home. The first club chairs were upholstered in leather in the late 1800’s. They naturally scuff and wear over time, but it only adds to leather’s great look. Here are examples of best-selling leather chairs:

Brown Club Chair

Upholstered in the finest Italian top grain leather, the Coaster Brown Leather Club Chair gives off an antique vibe with its decorative brass nail heads and rich brown colour. It’s been stuffed with down blend cushions and a foam core for a super comfortable seat.

Modern Black Club Chair

Modern and chic, the Monarch Modern Black Leather Club Chair is also upholstered in Italian leather, giving off a rich, bold look. It features a stainless steel exposed base frame that allows you to sink into it deeper than other chairs.

Fabric Club Chairs

If you’re all about colours and patterns, fabric chairs offer dozens of different styles for you to choose from. Fabric is also offered in a selection of materials. Choose from:

Comfy Club Chairs

Try the Broyhill if you’re looking for a neutral like tan or green.

Printed Fabric Club Chair

For a stylish look try a club chair with a bold print.

Club Chairs & Ottomans

There are club chairs out there that come with matching ottomans, either to put your feet up on or use as a makeshift coffee table. They can also be used as extra seating if you need it.

Armless Club Chair

If you love the look of leather but can’t afford the price, try a club chair in vinyl, like an armless club chair and ottoman set.

White Club Chair

The Monarch White Club Chair and Ottoman is upholstered in white leather with a visually appealing curved back.

Club Chair Backs

You can also select your living room chair on the way the back has been modeled or upholstered.

Tight Back Club Chair

Tight-back chairs can either be straight up or tilted, but normally aren’t cushioned. They are still comfortable, though, because they have flexible slats that cradle your back. The innovative Alphaville Wassily Tight Back Club Chair features a polished stainless steel frame and Italian leather slats for luxury comfort.


Instead of a cushion for a back, a separate pillow lines the back for extra comfort. Combine retro with modern styling with the Van Gogh Designs Slim Retro Club Chair. Choose from your choice of fabric pattern and colour to customize the look of your chair.

Remember that you don’t necessarily have to match your new chair with your sofa or bedroom furniture. When club chairs have their own distinct style apart from the rest of the room, they can almost act as a focal point or accent piece. And most of all – they must be comfy to you! What’s the point in having a nice-looking chair that isn’t even comfortable to sit in?
