Use a Victorian chair style to introduce a sophisticated antique touch into your living room. The best options for period-based interiors include the spoon-back with opulent upholstery, the lower nursing chair without armrests, and balloon-back chairs with an open back and upholstery on the base alone. If you have more traditional or contemporary interiors, however, you could simply choose a model that nods to Victorian styles by relying on darker wood, carved features, harmonious legs, and detailed upholstery.

What Users Say:
Easy to put together, I got ten chairs for my dining room table.
Victorian accent chair
This Victorian chair style is both show-stopping and versatile at the same time. It combines an ornate and hand-carved solid wood frame and beige upholstery in a subtle chicken-wire pattern.
You can use this chair to complement period-based interiors but also to introduce a sophisticated antique touch to different styles, and especially in rooms with a warm palette.
Majestic Victorian armchair
Available in velvet brown and cherry oak wood or velvet ivory and bone white, this Victorian chair style blends antique sophistication and contemporary comforts: just look at that soft tufted back and toss pillow!
Given its carved legs and extremely ornate frame, however, we only recommend it for antique or period-based interiors that already include similar furniture pieces. Alternatively, you could use it as a one-of-a-kind addition to Hollywood regency rooms.
Customizable Victorian chair style
This Victorian chair style involves a solid wood design in a white eggshell finish and pink linen upholstery, but you can get it customized to better suit your interiors and palette.
While you can make the most of its floral motif to introduce a more contemporary twist, the cabriole legs and carved wooden frame are a delightful celebration of Victorian decor.
Comfy modern Victorian chair in a more contemporary design
From the cherry finish to the nailhead trim and the elaborate frame, this chair certainly nods to the elegance of Victorian furniture. The tufted upholstery in a neutral color, however, gives it a slightly more contemporary twist.
It is great for modern or traditional interiors where an antique model would look painfully out of place.
Victorian style chair in a light hue
With decorative shapes and padded arms, this Victorian chair achieves a majestic contrast thanks to the dark wood finish and pale gray upholstery.
The actual seat is a bit lower than in most traditional chairs, so the slender back helps it create an airy visual flow: this is especially useful to balance seating areas that already include taller pieces.
Victorian chair with striped motif
This solid wood Victorian chair showcases elegant Victorian details, but the chenille of its upholstery is unmistakably French provincial.
Because its striped motif is both noticeable and balanced from a color perspective, it can be a handy compromise if you were torn between monochrome and patterned models relying on different hues altogether.
Antique Victorian chair style with monochrome upholstery
This antique Victorian chair pairs up an ornate solid wood design in a dark finish with opulent ochre upholstery.
While the most recognizable Victorian chair styles tend to involve elaborate patterns, this model is a wiser alternative if you’re planning on placing it next to pieces that already include them. That way, you’ll avoid a clashing of textures, shapes, and motifs, introducing an elegant touch instead.
Carved Victorian chair style
This Victorian chair is particularly comfy thanks to its 31” in width and the combination of faux leather (for the actual seat) and polycotton upholstery (for the backrest).
What immediately stands out, however, is the extremely ornate front, with a carved wooden base and legs.
We recommend this chair for antique interiors, but it wouldn’t look out of place in elegant modern rooms either.
Victorian chair with a multi color pattern
30” wide, this Victorian chair style gives you plenty of seating space. The bold paisley print really stands out against the monochrome frame in a dark wood finish.
As this is a particularly eye-catching pattern, we recommend using this chair as an accent in seating areas that mainly consist of monochrome pieces rather than adding it to colorful ones.
Balloon back Victorian chair
This authentic Victorian chair combines a walnut build with a reupholstered seat consisting of a fabric and trim from the early 1920s: a unique decorative statement, for sure!
Elegant and delightfully harmonious, the balloon back is a staple from Victorian furniture, so it’ll instantly elevate any room. As its armrests are primarily decorative, however, we don’t recommend this chair if you were hoping to use them to put your arms down to sit more comfortably.
