Take a load off your feet with our pick of the perfect chairs to lounge in this season
1 Stripy sitting
Sink into Andrew Martin's classic Capulet Chair. Striking button detailing on the back and arms is paired with sturdy black timber legs. The chair can be upholstered in any Andrew Martin fabric, but we love this understated pinstripe design.

2 Conceptual lounging
BoConcept is unveiling its 2014 collection this month. There are plenty of new designs, textures, colours and shapes to choose from, as well as a reworking of existing models. The new collection is defined by contrast: natural materials are mixed with metal, wood is combined with pops of neon and the raw is paired with the polished.

3 Mellow yellow
New at Ikea is the Stockholm swivel chair, which will make a bright and cheery addition to any room. The chair is made from high-resilience moulded foam, so it is comfortable, supportive and will keep its shape for years to come. It also comes in green and dark beige.

4 Bridging the gap
All slinky curves and elegant angles, the Bridge Chair was designed by Carlo Cordaro for Italian furniture label Atelier A, and is available now from Interior 360. We'd set the dark and light wood versions across from each other to create a sophisticated reading corner.

Designed to sit with Indigo Living's predominantly wooden Miller Collection, this low-lying armchair is perfect for smaller spaces. Channelling simple Scandinavian design, the low-slung, curvaceous, solid-wood seat comes in grey and olive green, and is hand-built and upholstered.
