I’m not going to lie- this post is solely for my husband. Emmett has been begging for a leather lounge chair and keeps texting me the most hateful options in hopes I’ll give in, despite the ugly options he keeps finding. I promised him once we move into our next home, he can pick a leather chair from a giant list of my favorites. Well… he’s still bothering me about this chair he’s been dreaming of, so I figured a giant roundup was in order. I’m going to let him choose one from this post (maybe for Christmas) and thought it might be helpful for you guys as well! I do love a quality leather piece of furniture. I mean, our leather bed is one of my favorite things in our home. Leather chairs are no exception- they’re timeless, durable, classic, and is there anything that says sophistication quite like a leather lounge chair? I think not. Click through to see the options I’m giving him!
Shop the roundups by clicking directly on the products, or using the numbered links below. There are a few chairs that wouldn’t link, so I made sure to link them at the bottom of the collage!
01: maddox leather chair // 02: zara armchair // 03: wells leather chair // 04: berkley leather chair // 05: peyton leather chair // 06: acme leather chair // 07: capilano leather chair // 08: hastings leather chair // 09: everett swivel chair // 10: chesterfield leather chair // 11: chestnut leather chair // 12: wrenton leather chair
When moving across the country into our home two years ago, the first thing we bought was our sofa (best decision, BTW). While we were at Pottery Barn, Emmett fell in love with chair #3 after plopping down into it and we actually ended up buying it!! If you’re wondering why you’ve never seen this particular chair in our home… it’s because it never arrived. We were both really bummed and pretty angry with Pottery Barn at the time, so we just gave up.
Both of us still really like and want that comfortable, swivel chair… so who knows- maybe he’ll choose the one that got away? In fact, he sent me to the local PB warehouse sale in hopes that I could snag the floor model. It wasn’t apart of the sale, so I came home empty handed, but hopefully this post of leather options will make him feel better about our loss. Ha!
Next up, camel colored chair options! This color of leather feels a bit more feminine to me. It’s probably what I’d choose for my office or a space that solely belongs to me, but I don’t see Emmett gravitating toward this soft, lighter palette- although a girl can dream.
If I had to choose my top three from the roundup above, I’d pick #4, #1, and #2… in that order. How’s that for specific?
Moving onto the black and gray options… these definitely feel very masculine, just because of the dark leather. Some of them even have an industrial aesthetic. The gray chairs skew a bit more neutral in terms of masculinity.
01: quest leather chair // 02: worthington leather chair // 03: brass base leather chair // 04: greer club chair // 05: tufted black leather chair // 06: thorp leather chair // 07: banks leather chair // 08: harley leather chair // 09: wingback leather chair // 10: oren swivel chair
If Emmett were to select a black option, I really hope he chooses #6. It just feels very classic to me. From the gray chairs, I’m digging #8 and funky #10.
Lastly, let’s jump to the cognac colored lounge chairs. These are very close in color to our leather bed in the master bedroom. I live for this warm and orangey hued leather. It feels inviting and super cozy! It also wouldn’t feel foreign in our house, since we use this palette often.
01: square arm leather chair // 02: sven leather chair // 03: burrard leather chair // 04: swivel leather chair // 05: sloane leather chair // 06: mid century leather chair // 07: hart leather chair // 08: leather recliner // 09: kearns leather chair // 10: garrison leather chair
So there you have it… the giant roundup of leather lounge chairs I’ll be presenting to my husband tonight. Want to place any wagers on which one he’ll land on? I’m pretty confident I can narrow down his top 3! How’s that for knowing a person well? Do you guys want me to report back with the winner or his top 5 picks? It might be fun to listen to his reasoning. Regardless of his selection, I know a leather chair is a great investment piece that we’ll both love for years to come.
*UPDATE : He’s currently trying to narrow it down between #3, #4, #10, & #12 from the very roundup (chestnut colored leather).
