5 Modern Chairs So Cozy You'll Throw Away Your Bed

As comfortable as it may be to kick back in a La-Z-Boy, they're just so tremendously ugly and obviously no match for the big boy bachelor pad vibe you've been cultivating. However, there are plenty of better looking, equally cozy alternatives more suited for your apartment, like these five right here.

Armada High Armchair

Price:On request
This sleek lounge and ottoman are fashioned from curved sheets of steel, then covered in your choice of top-notch leather or fur. It sits on a wooden base (your pick of elm, oak, cherry or pear) and also includes a selection of pillows with built-in magnets, making it dead-simple to build out a custom cushy encampment on demand.

Quartz Armchair

Price:$20,000
Admittedly prohibitively pricey, this piece is equal parts art and furniture. The beastly pod is made from 16 geometric cushions that lock into a claw-like wooden frame of hexagonal wooden pieces, forming a cozy nest in the unique crystal shape of the mineral it takes its name from. 

SWAY Rocking Chair

Price:$4,400
A far cry from your grandma's rocker, the SWAY looks a bit like a giant padded bird's nest attached to a steel frame. The way it's engineered, you can prop a pillow, lay back, and sway in all different positions. And should you feel like sharing, it's plenty big to accommodate another body. 

Fritz Hansen Ro

Price:$3,800
This easy chair/wingback hybrid sports a set of brushed aluminum or oak legs, and comes in nine different colorways, which if you're feeling particularly bold can be mixed and matched with. It also mercifully offers a wider seat than most wingbacks of its size, making naps all the more comfortable.

Evil Overlord Skull Armchair

Price:On request
You might recognize this one. The sort of thing you'd expect to find in a Bond villain's lair, this absurdly ostentatious piece can't help but make you feel a little more important every time you take a seat. It rests on an internal steel frame, which is covered in polyester resin and fiberglass to create the glassy black bony visage.
