Everybody needs a favourite chair that they can sink into at the end of a long day. Here are some of our favorites.
The hot list: Take a seat with the best chairs and sofas
1 Fly perch
• Fly sofa, Dh18,469, D.Tales, Jumeirah Beach Road, Dubai and Al Zahiyah, Abu Dhabi
2 Taking a Strand
If you’re looking for a statement chair that you can sink in to without breaking the bank, we’d recommend Ikea’s Strandmon. The high-backed wing chair comes in dark blue and orange, too, but we like the sombre “Svanby Grey” version best.
• Strandmon wing chair, Dh995, Ikea stores nationwide
3 Lounge act
Low arms and a sumptuous, 108-centimetre-deep seat make Andrew Martin’s Montague chair the optimum vehicle for serious lounging sessions. The chair can be upholstered in any Andrew Martin fabric – and there are countless to choose from – but we like the “Iowa Neutral” fabric, a floral tapestry on a heavyweight carpet cloth, as pictured here.
• Montague chair, price on request, Andrew Martin, DIFC
4 An evil throne
The aptly named Villian Chair will make you feel like you are moonlighting in a James Bond film from the 1970s. Made from leather, steel, chrome and aluminium, and standing 120 centimetres high on a swivel base, it’s the perfect place to put your feet up. We’re just not sure how you’ll stop people stealing your seat.

5 Playing the long game
The Holiday sofa by the Italian brand Molteni & C manages to look delicate and sumptuous at the same time. A light frame and wraparound back are coupled with dainty steel feet, which come in either a shiny chrome or titanium finish. The sofa is fully modular and comes in a range of fabric and leather options, so you can mix and match to your heart’s content.
