Armchairs are the Must-Have Furniture Item of 2017

It only takes one item to really claim a space as your own. Enter, the statement armchair.

With apartment living continuing to boom in Australian cities, many of us don't have a huge amount of space to work with in our living rooms. Even if you do, capitalise on this space by foregoing more than one chunky sofa, for a few stylish armchairs.

Not only is an armchair a practical and efficient space-saver, it can also be a thing of gaze-drawing beauty, with no shortage of bold designs currently in the market.

For example, retro Sixties and Seventies designs will continue to dominate well into 2017 - an ideal trend within which you can find a statement armchair.

Paired with other retro-inspired pieces-of-the-moment - i.e. drink trolleys and patterned wallpaper - a statement armchair is a great way to cap off that Mad Men-style living room or office.

By recently announcing their bold green Colour of the Year, Pantone also signalled bright colours are here to liven up 2017, so don't be afraid of really buying pieces that speak to your personal style, in your favourite colours and patterns.

Danish furniture will also play a big role in interiors in 2017 - with armchairs being a staple of this design movement. Following the recent passing of pioneering Danish furniture designer, Jens Risom, this style will be front and centre for admirers this year. 

So, sit back, relax and browse our pick of stunning statement armchairs.
