Project Upper East Side: My Favorite Seat In The House – The Club Chair


As far as accent chairs go, club chairs are easily at the top of my list. They are the perfect piece to add to a living room or bedroom if you’re looking for an extra-deep seat, perfect for curling up with a book!

As you guys know, my design process has been moving extra slow. I want to be selective with the pieces I incorporate and not rush any major design decisions. You can take a peek at my original to-do list here! As I mentioned over the weekend, I’m going to be sharing more apartment updates from here on out – I promise! I started a whole category dedicated to my Upper East Side apartment so in case you miss a week, you can always refer to this page to see the latest apartment updates! I’ve been sharing more behind-the-scene looks at my apartment on my Instagram stories as well so if you don’t follow me already, be sure to follow me on Instagram at here: @_laurennelson_.

Any who, I was originally thinking about investing in this spindle chair (isn’t she pretty?) from Williams-Sonoma. I also love this Blaine Chair from McGee & Co. However, I finally decided on investing in a skirted club chair! I’ll do an additional blog post dedicated to my custom club chair but in the meantime, I wanted to round up a few of my favorites on the market right now.

One Kings Lane has several club chair options from upholstered to leather to tufted. I love the trim on this chair. A bold stripe, slip covered and a swivel chair?! Sign me up. Last but not least, I absolutely love the look of the rolling arm club chair. The club chair is seriously so versatile that it can easily become your favorite seat in the house for years to come. You can shop my favorite chairs below.

Happy Monday, friends! Xo. Lauren

The Club Chair

KEY FEATURES: A roomy, upholstered armchair with an extra-deep seat! Perfect for sipping coffee in the morning or curling up with a book on the weekend.

FREQUENTLY SPOTTED: Club chairs are often seen in pairs, accessorized with an ottoman, or is the ideal companion for your living room sofa.

MOST LIKELY TO: Have a skirt, tufted back or nail head trim. Leather club chairs are also largely popular!

FUN FACTOID: The club chair originated in France under the name fauteuil comfortable (also known as “comfy chair“). Club chairs can be correlated to the historic gentleman’s club back in the 19th century (England) where one would find classic tufted, leather chairs. So Ralph Lauren!
