Unique Lounge Chair For Sale on 1stDibs

At 1stDibs, there are many versions of the ideal unique lounge chair for your home. Each unique lounge chair for sale was constructed with extraordinary care, often using wood, fabric and metal. Find 77 options for an antique or vintage unique lounge chair now, or shop our selection of 11 modern versions for a more contemporary example of this long-cherished piece. Whether you’re looking for an older or newer unique lounge chair, there are earlier versions available from the 19th Century and newer variations made as recently as the 21st Century. A unique lounge chair made by Mid-Century Modern designers — as well as those associated with Scandinavian Modern — is very popular. You’ll likely find more than one unique lounge chair that is appealing in its simplicity, but Johnny Swing, Kurt Olsen and Frits Swart produced versions that are worth a look.

How Much is a Unique Lounge Chair?

A unique lounge chair can differ in price owing to various characteristics — the average selling price 1stDibs is $3,900, while the lowest priced sells for $515 and the highest can go for as much as $55,000.

Finding the Right Seating for You

With entire areas of our homes reserved for “sitting rooms,” the value of quality antique and vintage seating cannot be overstated.

Fortunately, the design of side chairs, armchairs and other lounge furniture — since what were, quite literally, the early perches of our ancestors — has evolved considerably.

Among the earliest standard seating furniture were stools. Egyptian stools, for example, designed for one person with no seat back, were x-shaped and typically folded to be tucked away. These rudimentary chairs informed the design of Greek and Roman stools, all of which were a long way from Sori Yanagi's Butterfly stool or Alvar Aalto's Stool 60. In the 18th century and earlier, seats with backs and armrests were largely reserved for high nobility.

The seating of today is more inclusive but the style and placement of chairs can still make a statement. Antique desk chairs and armchairs designed in the style of Louis XV, which eventually included painted furniture and were often made of rare woods, feature prominently curved legs as well as Chinese themes and varied ornaments. Much like the thrones of fairy tales and the regency, elegant lounges crafted in the Louis XV style convey wealth and prestige. In the kitchen, the dining chair placed at the head of the table is typically reserved for the head of the household or a revered guest.

Of course, with luxurious vintage or antique furnishings, every chair can seem like the best seat in the house. Whether your preference is stretching out on a plush sofa, such as the Serpentine, designed by Vladimir Kagan, or cozying up in a vintage wingback chair, there is likely to be a comfy classic or contemporary gem for you on 1stDibs.

With respect to the latest obsessions in design, cane seating has been cropping up everywhere, from sleek armchairs to lounge chairs, while bouclé fabric, a staple of modern furniture design, can be seen in mid-century modern, Scandinavian modern and Hollywood Regency furniture styles.

Admirers of the sophisticated craftsmanship and dark woods frequently associated with mid-century modern seating can find timeless furnishings in our expansive collection of lounge chairs, dining chairs and other items — whether they’re vintage editions or alluring official reproductions of iconic designs from the likes of Hans Wegner or from Charles and Ray Eames. Shop our inventory of Egg chairs, designed in 1958 by Arne Jacobsen, the Florence Knoll lounge chair and more.

No matter your style, the collection of unique chairs, sofas and other seating on 1stDibs is surely worthy of a standing ovation.

Questions About Unique Lounge Chair
  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 25, 2019

    Lounge chair is another word for chaise longue.

  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 8, 2023
    The difference between a lounge chair and a chair is specificity. A chair is the general term for furniture typically designed to seat one person at a time, and there are many different kinds of chairs, including dining, accent and office chairs. Lounge chairs are another example of a specific type of chair. They are chairs with a footrest that allows you to elevate your feet while sitting. On 1stDibs, explore a large collection of chairs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 5, 2021
    A sling lounge chair is a chair formed of metal or wooden frame to which a piece of flexible material is loosely fitted. It is used to relax while the sitter remains engaged in an activity such as reading a book or having a conversation. Find a variety of vintage and antique sling lounge chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertJanuary 23, 2024
    Whether lounge chairs are comfortable or not is a matter of personal opinion. However, providing a comfortable place to sit is the main function of a lounge chair. After all, the addition of the footrest makes it possible to kick up your feet and relax. Many makers design lounge chairs with comfort in mind, adding features like cushioning and/or ergonomic backrests and seats. Explore a wide variety of lounge chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 2, 2021
    A chaise longue chair — or “chaise lounge,” as it is sometimes called in America — is a reclining upholstered sofa that is long enough to support one's legs. A comfortable common ground between sofas and daybeds, early iterations of chaise longues were discovered in Ancient Egypt and were later frequently used in both Greece and Rome. Shop a collection of antique, vintage, and contemporary chaise lounge chairs from some of the world’s top dealers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    There are a variety of names that a lounge chair can be called, like chaise, daybed and settee to name a few. Lounge chairs add a classic touch to any décor. You can shop a collection of lounge chairs from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Not allowing for deviation, a lounge chair is defined as an armless recliner that is paired with an ottoman and designed for relaxing. It is not a reclining chair and it is not an armchair. This is an interesting category where it’s more about the purpose of the chair than the actual design when you get down to it. Shop a collection of lounge chairs from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 5, 2023
    The difference between a lounge chair and an accent chair pertains to purpose. Typically, a lounge chair is wider and deeper than an accent chair and tends to have a thicker cushion. These stylistic differences owe to the fact that lounge chairs are meant to provide luxurious, comfortable seating for long periods of time, while accent chairs are more often intended to add visual appeal to a living room. On 1stDibs, shop a collection of living room chairs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 21, 2023
    Opinions vary about what the most comfortable lounge chair in the world is. Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to seating. Generally, lounge chairs that feature cushioning and have ergonomic designs that fit the curves of the human body are comfortable options. One iconic example is the Eames lounge chair and ottoman, which its creators, Charles and Ray Eames, designed to serve as "a special refuge from the strains of modern living." On 1stDibs, find a large collection of lounge chairs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertDecember 4, 2023
    Although opinions may vary, the most famous lounge chair in the world is arguably the Eames lounge chair. Charles and Ray Eames designed the chair and unveiled it in 1956. The couple famously called their lounge chair and ottoman "a special refuge from the strains of modern living” and described their design as having the "warm receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt."
