Armchairs with Wooden Arms

Buy the best armchairs with wooden arms selected and recommended by interior designers. By Chloe Hughes.

Traditionally, armchairs’ upholstery fully covers the shape of the frame except for the legs. But there’s something special about choosing an upholstered armchair with exposed wooden arms. This allows the beauty of the frame to be seen without sacrificing comfort in the seat and back areas. Exposed wooden arms give extra scope for the elegance of the chair’s lines to be seen and these 10 chair designs make the best of the opportunity.

Description

As well as gray and taupe, this chair comes in light blue and teal polyester blend upholstery. These both offer a pretty color contrast to the solid wood medium-brown frame. Supports up to 300 lbs and requires partial assembly with all tools required included.

Leather Wooden Armchair

Leather Wooden Armchair

Description

This mid-century modern chair is upholstered in either black or brown genuine top-grain leather. Use a specialty cleaning kit to care for the leather. The sculptural frame is made from solid ash hardwood and finished in a warm honey stain.

Designer Advice

With its compact shape and size this lovely chair can find a place anywhere in your home. At 33.44 lbs overall weight, you can even easily move it when you need an extra seat in a different room. As the line of the wooden arm gently curves upward, consider choosing an upholstered sofa with the same gently curved arm.

Solid Wood Armchair

Solid Wood Armchair

Description

A solid wood, oak-finish frame supports this armchair. It allows frame details to outline the chair as part of the design treatment. The fabric is a 100% linen blend and comes in two tones of distressed gray — medium or dark. 

Designer Advice

If you’re looking for elegance in an armchair with wooden arms, look no further. The style of this Bérgere chair has been around since King Louis XV and is especially noted for its extra wide and deep seat. If you find the seat deeper than is comfortable, this furniture line created a companion ottoman that can be ordered separately.

Camel Armchairs with Wooden Arms

Description

Both price-friendly and stunning, this armchair wins on all fronts. The polyester-blend back and seat cushions are removable for easy cleaning with a damp cloth. Made of solid rubberwood, the frame holds beautiful caning panels on the sides and back of the chair.

Designer Advice

The combination of camel-colored fabric with a walnut-stained frame and caning sets this apart from other armchairs. The frame height is continuous throughout the back and the arms at 28” high. While this is higher than most armrests, it’s not so high as to be uncomfortable when resting your arms. Position these pretty chairs at the head and foot of your dining table and then choose similar, but armless chairs for the balance of the table seating.

Mission style Armchair with Wooden Arms

Lark Manor™

Description

Microsuede upholstery is known for being easy to clean along with its water-repelling properties. The microsuede seat and back cushions are removable for easy cleaning but still give you excellent support with an interior coil spring seat. The frame is made of solid rubberwood.

Designer Advice

This Mission-style chair is as solid as it is true to the American West style and can comfortably hold up to 250 lbs. The chair itself weighs almost 41 lbs so is not as easily moved from place to place as some other armchairs with wooden arm options. Continue to decorate in this style by adding other furniture with straight lines and blocky 90° angles. The most common woods used in the furniture style are solid red and white oak.

Armchair with Wooden Arms and Legs

George Oliver

Description

This modern chair design is iconic in its styling with curved arms, straight sides and flared tapered legs. Polyester blend fabric covers two attached fiber-wrapped foam cushions on the seat and tight-back cushion. The seat depth is standard and can carry up to 300 lbs.

Designer Advice

We love the mid-century design of this chair in combination with the fabric color selection. From ivory to gray to apple green, azure and seafoam, you can choose this classic frame and pair it with a neutral- or brightly-colored upholstery. The apple green and azure upholstery colors are clean so should be paired with other cleaner colors, while the seafoam is slightly more muted and its color will be enhanced by pairing with other more muted colors.
