No matter what design style you favor, if you are creating a comfortable living space at home, chances are you’ll require an armchair or two. Since we have lived with white decor and white living rooms through the decades, I have snagged my share of ivory, putty, alabaster and ecru arm chairs too. 12 Stunning White Living Room Chair Ideas is a collection of some possibilities to consider.
12 Stunning White Living Room Chair Ideas
Why a white armchair? For starters, should your living space be on the cozy small side like this sweet little Saltbox tiny house living room above, white won’t be visually overpowering.
If you’re living room is lofty like mine, light, bright and neutral can come together for a serene and tranquil (even monastic–which I love!) mood.
Lovely Chair No. 1: Belgian Linen Swivel
I collected the Belgian linen chairs in our own living room over time, and they have lived in different rooms over the years.
That’s the beauty of neutrals, right!?! Find more decor and furniture to get a European inspired look I love RIGHT HERE.

The Belgian linen upholstered Copenhagen chair from RH is my favorite, and while it’s no longer offered at Restoration Hardware, you can sometimes snag one HERE.
I can’t say enough about how easy Belgian linen is to live with.
Pieces in our living room have experienced their fair share of red wine, chocolate, and various ‘oops.’ Spot cleaning has always returned them to glory.
Gorgeous White Chair No. 2: Slope or Track Armed Lovely
Another design element I love about a gorgeous linen armchair is a beautiful slope or track arm which Belgian designers have ingeniously mastered.
Gorgeous White Living Room Chair No. 3: Wings & Swivel
I’m serious about my admiration for swivel. It’s just more fun, not to mention the ease for conversation, television watching, and overall function.
Pretty ArmChair No. 4: Barrel Chair With Swivel
Here’s an option when you need a couple of neutral barrel chairs for not a lot of barrels of cash.
Living Room Chair Idea No. 5: Compact Barrel Chair
I opted for inexpensive Tullsta barrel chairs from Ikea for our Arizona master bedroom, and there are wonderful examples, most with cost-conscious price tags. If messy slipcovers bother your eye, you may not be a fan of the Ikea ones I used. (You can also see the wrinkles of my Belgian linen panels at the window…never bothered me!).
Chair No. 6: Accent Chairs in Living Spaces
Let’s face it. For many of us, the kitchen has become the true living room. In my own kitchen, I approached the breakfast nook as more of a living space with Belgian linen slope arm dining chairs (RH) and a floor lamp as well as lots of pillows on the window seat.
Here’s a beautiful possibility!
Chair No. 7: Timeless Bergere
Oh, the beauty of a French armchair in any room!
Chair No. 8: Modern, Comfy & Unexpected
This chair! It’s on my list of ‘someday pieces’ for the dream house I am designing in my head. Who can forget how designer Pamela Pierce used one in her timeless Houston living room?
Chair No. 9: Sexy Peek-a-boo Linen
Here’s another one of those fantasy white linen chairs for me. It can’t go in just any ol’ space, but I can imagine designing a room around a pair of them. Wouldn’t 4 of them in lieu of a sofa be a sexy start for a chic and conversational living space?
You can snag it in chrome too if that better suits you.
White Chair No. 10: Traditional Wing That Feels Modern
Sometimes a living room can be in need of a freshened design element to save it from ‘granny factor’ or ‘one note-ness.’
Chair No. 11: Swing Chairs
So it’s well established that I love to swivel. But I also love to swing! Here’s a trio of yummy examples, and I’d love to hear your favorite.
Chair No. 12: Timeless & Swedish
Here’s a wildcard that reminds me of something I would see in a modern farmhouse or a space inspired by Patina Farm (read about the Giannetti’s latest venture HERE).
In case you need a sweet accent table…

Thanks so much for reading, friends. If you are the praying type, I welcome your prayers. I will be undergoing two procedures in the morning and a third the following day, but that’s not the request.
It is our beautiful son. The last few days have been a living nightmare as a sudden onset of illness caused full blown colitis and constant stabbing pain. We learned tonight he is positive for an infection (not corona), and it is very serious. Pain meds are not helping enough, and he is unable to lift his head or talk. The reflexology I am doing helps him get through some of the pain. I can think of nothing else but helping him heal and feel loved.
My heart is so heavy – thank you.
