Look no further for the latest in contemporary armchairs.Swathed in cosy sheepskin, super-soft wool or fluffy faux-fur, each of these chairs is a delight, providing snug comfort and maximum style points in one hit – not always an easy combo to find.
Given the temperature drops and design heritage in the Nordic countries, it may come as no surprise that three of the shaggy chairs in our edit are classic Scandinavian pieces. Little Petra became an example of the ‘Funkis’ design movement in Denmark in the 1930s and the Arctander is the stuff of design legend, having been ignored for decades only to resurface in the 90s and continue to win style fans ever since, ever more so, following its recent reupholstery in sheepskin.
Some of the newest models take their influence from instantly recognisable mid-century shapes, others are a stylish take on more traditional wing-back forms. Either way, the shaggy chair is having a style moment.
So choose your favourite piece, hunker down in the warm, sit back and relax…
