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 and a good set of cushions.

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.

Eaton Wingback Fireside Herringbone Reclining Sofa Chair

1 / 2
2 / 2

One of the best-selling reclining conservatory 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.

Comfortable padding in chair and arm

High-quality reclining system

Althorpe Wingback Fireside Reclining Armchair

1 / 2
2 / 2

Like the model above, this Eaton 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.

TecTake Luxury Aluminium Wicker Chair

1 / 2
2 / 2

This delightfully old-school and very traditional-looking wicker chair comes in an aesthetically pleasing natural brown colouring, offseting and contrasting 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.

Key Features:

Aluminium frame ensures stability

Seat cover removable and washable

Suits all weather (if used outside)

No assembly required

Warmiehomy Modern Velvet Occasional Chair

1 / 2
2 / 2

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.
