Vintage leather flea market chair

Cigar brown leather armchair

Comfy armchair

In some respects, it’s a slightly strange idea for a retailer to call a brand new piece of furniture a ‘flea market chair,’ as it gives connotations of it being old and worn. But when you see this leather armchair, you can understand why.

The somewhat aged look of the leather of this 1900s vintage style armchair makes it look like the kind of chair that’s typically found in a market and coveted by bargain furniture hunters. One of the main benefits of buying it new though, as opposed to secondhand from a flea market, is that you don’t have to worry about how you’re going to get it home or whether you can carry it as far as your car.

The chair is made from a lovely shade of soft cigar brown aniline leather. Its compact size (H76, W86 and D88cm) makes it perfect for use in small spaces – like the corner of your bedroom, in the hall or in a study – or as an occasional chair.

The Flea Market chair is sold by House of Fraser and was originally £1399, but is now down to only £799 in their sale.

If this chair isn’t quite to your taste, then there are other leather chairs and sofas in the sale too, including the leather Colorado sofa and chairs, the Milano occasional chair and an academic sounding leather Professor chair.
