9 Conservatory Chairs I’d Recommend To Sit On (2019 update)

Conservatories are normally designed as a bridge between the outside world and your home. They are perfect hideaways from the rest of the house, where all the hustle and bustle occurs. You can take yourself off to your conservatory and enjoy a bit of peace and quiet from the rest of the household. To get the most out of this relaxing spot though, you need to invest in quality conservatory chairs.

Even if you don’t anticipate spending more than a couple of hours in your conservatory a day or even a week, you will still want it to feel part of the home, a place to relax, unwind. But where to even begin? It’s easy to feel intimidated by the sheer choice of conservatory chairs available.

The decision becomes a lot easier when you begin thinking about the key things you want from your chairs. For example, what style of chair would you prefer? Do you have any conservatory plants that consume much of the floor space? Does it fit the interior design of the conservatory? Sometimes it depends on what colour paint your conservatory walls are. Wicker and cane conservatory chairs are all immensely popular.

If you’ve only got a small lean-to, you may want a smaller build or if you like to layback in that special area of escape, you may benefit from one of the bigger reclining conservatory chairs available.

We know only too well that the sheer variety and choice available can be intimidating, so we’ve listed 9 recommended chairs we think would make a great fit for varying types of conservatories. We have broken down the guide into three sections –Reclining Conservatory Chairs, Wicker Conservatory Chairs and then A Handful of Our Favourite Chairs.

Most of the time this decision relies on the design of the conservatory and of course personal preference, hopefully these 9 will give you that ‘wow’ factor.

Recommended Reclining Conservatory Chairs

Do you like the idea of laying back in your conservatory on a summery day with a good book and a nice glass of Chardonnay? Reclining conservatory chairs are just the kind of furniture you need.

  • Comfortably padded, this chair offers superior comfort and support due to its soft padding, superb lumbar support and full chaise seating.
  • High-quality Push Back Recliner Mechanism - to recline the chair, place your hands on the armrests of the recliner and push forward on the arms, as you lean backwards using your bodyweight.
  • High-quality Herringbone Fabric upholstery.
  • 12 Month Warranty for true peace of mind.
  • All our products are fully fire retardant and meet or exceed UK safety regulations.

One of the best-selling reclining chairs from More4Homes, the Eaton is from their Premier collection and a very attractive chair indeed. It features high-quality herringbone grey fabric upholstery and has a push-back recliner mechanism that’s easy to use. We love it because the mechanics involved in its design are well hidden, and don’t distract from its class and sophistication.

What’s more, the pillow back support and the arms are filled with soft and soothing foam to give you the most comfortable experience possible. It means that you can sit back and just watch the world fly by for hours and hours.

They also benefit from thoughtful lumbar support, meaning you’ll never inadvertently do damage to your back or other delicate areas. Once you sit back in this chair, and use the recliner mechanism, you use your bodyweight to push it back and as the back reclines, the supportive footrest raises up.

  • Add a touch of heritage to any room with the Althorpe’s stylish wingback design. Whether you want to create a bold statement with the bonded-leather material, or a slightly softer look with one of the fabric options.
  • Comfortably padded, gives comfort and support where it's needed the most. This model offers soft padding, excellent lumbar support and full chaise seating.
  • High quality Push Back Recliner Mechanism, place your hands on the arm rests of the recliner and in conjunction with pushing forward on the arms lean backwards using your bodyweight to recline the chair.

Like the model above, this wingback fireside reclining armchair is also part of the Premier collection from More4Homes. The main difference is the upholstery has a beautiful gingham pattern and beige colouring. Everything else is the same, so if you like the above and wanted another chair that has the same structure and reclining mechanism, but wanted a different colouring, you could invest in both. We think either or both would look delightful in just about any conservatory.

Although they do have that old country and traditional feel about them, either would still bring a touch of luxury and eloquence to a more modern conservatory.

Recommended Wicker Conservatory Chairs

There is just something undeniably attractive and appealing about wicker chairs that make us want to slip into comfortable slippers and slump down to enjoy forty winks or a good read. If you are the same as us, you will undoubtedly appreciate the beauty and elegance of the wicker conservatory chairs we have picked out below.

TecTake Luxury aluminium wicker chair seat armchair garden conservatory poly rattan natural + seat cushion and back cushion - different colours - (brown mixed | no. 401975)
  • aluminium frame - very stable
  • artificial rattan/wicker modelled after the natural original
  • seat cover is removable and washable (hand wash)
  • Total dimensions (l x w x g): approx 71 x 60 x 84 cm - Weight: 7.6 kg
  • plastic feet protect underlying surfaces

First up, we have this delightfully old-school and very traditional-looking wicker chair. In an aesthetically pleasing natural brown colouring, it will offset and contrast the pure brilliant white of most conservatories perfectly. Made with an aluminium frame, you can be sure you won’t have any problem with this falling apart easily. As much as we all love wicker, one of the problems with traditional wicker is caring for it. That’s where TecTake have been clever and used an imitation rattan wicker, rather than the real thing.

If the idea of harsh and sharp aluminium legs on the delicate surface of your conservatory floor doesn’t sound especially appealing, don’t worry. TecTake have fitted the legs of their wicker conservatory chair with plastic feet. That way your wood, tiling, lino or carpeting will be safe from damage.

To provide that much needed comfort, the seat and the backing have soft cushioning. What we love is the fact that the cushion covers can be removed and washed, helping to keep the chair looking as new all the time.

Allibert by Keter Rattan Ice Cool Box Outdoor Garden Furniture, Graphite, 39 x 39 x 43 cm
  • Ideal indoor/outdoor ice cool box for use in gardens, conservatories and entertaining spaces
  • Built to keep all of your refreshments cold and fresh; can also be used as a side table or an extra seating solution
  • Sleek and sophisticated garden furniture with a rattan - style flat weave that is tough, durable and low maintenance
  • Lightweight design with practical hand grips for comfort
  • High quality garden furniture with 3 years guarantee

Admittedly, this has a bit of a different look to it than the more traditional designs with arms and a backing. However, because of its wicker-style material and design and its very functional and practical shape, it will work just as well inside as it would outside. What’s more, if you invest in more than one of these beauties, you can use one as a side table and one as a stool.

What if you already have a perfectly comfortable conservatory chair? You could still make use of the Keter Cube Garden Seat as a nice footstool. All that and we haven’t even mentioned another of its great functions and selling points – the fact you can store up to 60-litres of stuff inside it.

So not only will it look great, help you to feel great, but will also help ensure that your conservatory stays neat and tidy. As it’s waterproof, it also can be used safely outdoors. So, when the sun is extra hot and you want to move into the garden, you can take The Cube with you.

A Handful of Other Favourite Chairs

In the final section of our guide we’ve gone off the beaten path somewhat. The last handful of chairs are our favourites for different reasons, and each can be used to fulfil slightly different purpose.

  • The wingback chair is an ideal piece for compact spaces for living room, bedroom, hallway, dining room, office or conservatory with modern and stylish looking.

It may be listed as an occasional chair and depending on how often you find yourself to the side or back of your home in your conservatory, that might be all you use it for. However, occasional chairs are often known as accent chairs, because they add to the overall look and feel of a room.

That’s exactly what you get with the Warmiehomy Modern Velvet occasional chair. Just look at the wingback design and that deep and striking velvet fabric that the back and seat are upholstered with. It’s got a sturdy base in the form of the solid oak legs.

The only thing you need to assemble, in fact, is those beautiful and rich hued legs. So, within just moments of receiving this great chair you can be relaxing on it or marvelling at it as you go about your day to day chores and activities. One thing’s for sure, you may find your guests fighting over who gets to sit on it.

How about this practical thing? Except for The Cube, most of the conservatory chairs we’ve featured in this guide have had high backs. This, on the other hand, looks like something from a classic living room or even a reception area.

From FoxHunter, this armchair also stands out because it has a circular-shape design. It has been built to last but is not so hardwearing and robust that it’s uncomfortable. In fact, it’s incredibly soft to touch. The button-style stitching on the back rest, really sets it apart from other chairs and gives it that sophisticated and classic look.

Like many of the chairs we’ve featured, it benefits from being hand-made using traditional methods that gives you the promise of a product that’s of the highest quality. Perfect for a corner or next to a little table in your conservatory.

Final Thoughts

Then, all that’s left to do is just sit back and relax, with that glass of Chardonnay or Merlot and enjoy some quality time doing nothing at all. You deserve it!
