Haus Tech: take a seat

Mid Century Rocking Chair

We're all for the merging of comfort and style in our homes, so in this Haus Tech, we've compiled a list of our favourite armchairs that look amazing without having to make any compromises on being comfy too.

Mid Century Rocking Chair - £350

Rocking chairs have long been reserved for our grandparents' houses, but there's no reason why they shouldn't get a contemporary upgrade. This rocking chair takes a classic concept and modernises it with the use of bold colours and simple lines.

Komplett Lounge Chair

You'll get the chance to flex your DIY muscles with this lounge chair as it comes flat-packed, but once that's out of the way you'll be left with a simple and stylish lounge chair built from solid bamboo grown in sustainable forests free from the use of chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers.

Tired Man Armchair - £2209

The classic Tired Man Armchair was designed in 1935 by Flemming Lassen, a progressive modernist architect and designer who, as well as chairs, also designed the Sollerod Town Hall near Copenhagen. Lassen said the armchair should feel "as warm and safe as a polar bear cub in the arms of its mother in the middle of the ice cap". Wise words.

Geffrye Chair - £2295

Using House of Hackney's now iconic Hackney Empire print featuring anthropomorphised animals up to all sorts of mischief (there's a shisha-smoking sloth and a ukulele playing squirrel) makes this Deco shaped armchair into a definite conversation piece. The brand also offers a bespoke service so your chair can be made a custom height and width.

Moon Lacquered Small Armchair - £823

Probably the least comfortable looking armchair on the list – but perhaps the most striking, this Tokujin Yoshioka designed chair marries modern Japanese aesthetic with simplicity and natural imagery having been inspired by the light and shadow of the moon. Yoshioka's been named as one of the '100 most respected Japanese by the world' by the Japanese Newsweek so his accolades as a designer speak for him.
