Let’s face it, sometimes you just want to sit by yourself and enjoy a cup of coffee and some alone time. What better place than curling up in a cozy lounge chair? But finding that perfect chair is sometimes the biggest hurdle, and many come with price tags that might make you want to spring for a ticket to Europe instead. To help, we rounded up 6 of our favorite lounge chairs under $500 so you can find your happy place without breaking the bank.
See one you love? Let us know and we’ll show it to you in your living room, designed with your style.
1. Tobacco Leather Butterfly Chair, $399
A playful take on a familiar camping staple, we can’t get enough of this leather butterfly chair. We love it because it’s a great statement piece at an even greater price that works well across many styles – pair it with your mid-century modern, industrial, rustic, bohemian, or even contemporary decor scheme.
We also think the leather butterfly chair is great for small spaces, making it one of our most-used products in apartments. It has a small footprint so it won’t eat up valuable real estate, and the leather seat creates a comfy cocoon, so it feels like a substantial armchair.
Stylist Tip: Take your butterfly chair look from day to night by swapping your mug of coffee for a glass of wine.
2. Book Nook Armchair, $349
This chair was an easy pick for our under $500 hit list. We love the Book Nook armchair because its curved shape makes for the perfect place to cozy up with a book (or with Netflix, we don’t judge).
Sporting a sleek, no-frills yet approachable form, we love how this chair melds with any style. So whether you’re a hard core mid-century modern fangirl or if you prefer a more contemporary and clean look, the Book Nook armchair will fit right in. And at $399, this chair is a great pick for those who are looking to invest in a great quality piece that transcends style and will work with you for years to come.
3. Agency Chair, $349
Do you have pets who destroy all things upholstered? If that sounds like your daily struggle then please allow us to introduce you to your new BFF, the Agency woven wire mesh chair. Consistently described as “surprisingly comfortable,” this chair is another of our under $500 favorites.
We love how this chair is durable, easy to clean, and totally pet-proof. The open and airy frame makes this another favorite of small space-dwellers, and it’s a great way to add an industrial accent to your home.
Stylist Tip: Pair this chair with a sheepskin throw for an extra dose of comfort and glam!
4. Dhurrie Occasional Chair, $498
A petite little number, we had to add this nugget to bring some color to our favorite chairs under $500 list. We love the colors and vintage-inspired pattern, rendered in a washed velvet for a little extra glam. This chair is a great way to bring a little pop of eclectic, bohemian vibes to your space (and when we say “little” we do mean that this chair is pretty petite so you might want to try it on in your space to see).
5. Chinese Chippendale Chair, $499
For those of you who identify your style as a bit more on the classic and formal side, this Chippendale style chair has your name on it. With a frame rendered in a chinoiserie bamboo motif, this chair harkens back to a sense of tradition and will bring an element of formal elegance to any space.
Available in a rainbow of colors, we love this chair for anyone with a taste for finer things (but maybe not the budget).
6. Windson Wood Arm Chair, $230
Love the look of mid-century modern furniture but can’t swing the prices? Fret no more because we’ve got you covered with this amazingly affordable mid-century style armchair. We love the sleek shape of these chairs, which flaunt a mid-century silhouette but aren’t over the top.
So even if your style isn’t mid-century, we think these chairs lend a lovely modern aesthetic to any space. Weighing in at only $230, we extra love them because you can even get a pair under $500 to really fill out your living room look.
