Take A Seat in Luxury With Kare Design

Chair design has come a long way but there are so many classic designs that we still use today. Now more than ever, we are all longing to create comfortable deluxe spaces at home that we can call our own. Kare Design gets it right with sophisticated seating that brings a wow factor into any room.


10 chair styles that are timeless:

Yes, the world of chair design continues to evolve, but some of the traditional forms and shapes prevail. This includes timeless chairs that are used in both traditional and modern interiors. The top 10 chair styles we still see today includes:

  • Wingback chairs. These feature statement side panels and a chair back (often tall).
  • Club chairs. Commonly created in leather, these comfy chairs are a classic living room addition.
  • Windsor chairs. These beauties are defined by their sunken saddle seats, solid wood design, complete with a round-tenoned back and legs.
  • Egg chairs. As the title suggests, these chairs feature a curved egg-like form which is perfect for modern interiors.
  • Wassily chairs. These striking chairs feature chair a tubular steel frame and come in various replicas, but most models are created with a polished chrome finish with leather or fabric slings.
  • Tulip chairs. Designed to be paired with the complementary tulip table, this Eero Saarinen-designed mid-century chair is defined by its single pedestal base that offers a sleek, clutterless appeal.
  • Wishbone chairs. Marked by its steam-bent backrest and handwoven seat, this Hans Wegner-designed chair is inspired by Ming Chairs and boasts a delicate design.
  • Rocking chairs. We all have come to know the famous rocking chair – perfect for gently swaying babies to sleep.  Commonly made of wood, the rocking chair was actually invented in the early 1700s and originally used in gardens.
  • Chesterfield chairs. A statement of luxe living, the modern chesterfield is comfortable, tailored, and undeniably sexy. It features rolled arms, button tufting, and nailhead trim.
  • And last but not least, the humble armchair – a statement chair in many homes around the globe. Another style that’s name says it all, armchairs are accent chairs designed with separate side panels that form a structure to rest your arms.

Some of our armchair top picks from Kare Design:

Aunt Betty Armchair

If you like retro seating you will love this armchair. Aunt Betty makes an impact with its finest 50s design and looks very contemporary due to numerous modern details. The soft velvet cover provides a refined feel and a fine sitting experience. The refined filigree frame design, soft but contrasting colours and the elaborate side design with piping complete the attractive look. This armchair adds style to any interior. Also available as a chair.

Portrait Turquoise Armchair

If you think an armchair for reading is comfortable but boring, you haven’t seen this model yet. On closer inspection, this classic surprises with an unusual detail: dazzlingly beautiful macaws have made themselves comfortable on the back. The trendy design of the velvety cushioned furniture meets the taste of jungle fans and people who go for flamboyant styling.

Session Green Armchair

Nicely quilted. A charming cocktail chair from the Session range by Kare Design. What can you expect? Striking diamond quilting on the seat and backrest set this beauty apart. Furthermore, you’ll find details full of character such as metal caps on the legs and a cover in leather look.

Matteo Brown Armchair

This all-round upholstered armchair with an extra back cushion literally embraces you. Thanks to its attractive design from all sides, the lounge chair can stand freely in the room. The pleasant cover in a brown velvet look shimmers lighter and darker depending on the angle of the light. Furthermore, it is a real eye-catcher with the luxurious steel covering. Add safari glamour to the interior!

Regency Zebra Armchair

Drama, baby! – Only the best will do! Those wishing to live elegantly in line with this motto have a taste for flamboyance. That means the dining-room chair can occasionally look like a throne, not to mention a cross between African wildlife and the opulent style of antique seating. The metal-covered frame with its splendid ornamentation and fine details is the ideal combination for the classy velvet upholstery of the seat and backrest. This upholstery with its attractive zebra pattern creates additional excitement and an added touch of glamour.

Desire Velvet Khaki Armchair

Armchair: relaxed sophistication. An enduring delight. My Desire turns the living room into a salon. As a modern homage to the legendary style of the Chesterfield armchair with its typical details such as the armrests and backrests at the same height and the all-round buttoning, this armchair reinterprets the familiar design idiom in a brilliant way.

With so many modern takes on traditional classics, we are certainly spoiled for choice. How will we choose? Check out the wide selection of luxe seating and make the choice for yourself – now at Kare Design.
