John Lewis Compton Leather Wing Armchair, Antiqued

Special offer

Product information

This traditional fireside chair, upholstered in antiqued chestnut brown leather, will add a classical gravitas to any drawing room, front room or even bedroom.

Constructed from a hardwood frame, it has a traditionally webbed back and the cushions are filled in soft feather and down for that "squidgy" feeling.

Featuring turned "leaf" front legs in antique mahogany finish, the much-loved, been-around-for-years look is completed by an expertly-applied aged effect. Slight variations will occur from chair to chair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oh so comfy!! This chair is excellent, although some may think it to be a bit pricey it is worth every penny. It's getting better the more it is used, excellent quality and extremely comfortable. Delivery was excellent, very good service all round. 06 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceptional quality. Exceptional quality and classy look. Both chairs got more comfortable as days rolled by. 22 June 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Compton winged chair This is a really lovely chair to look at but unfortunately it isn't very comfortable to sit in. The cushion is very lumpy and uncomfortable. Perhaps with different filling in the cushion it may be better. 10 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Good Old Friend We purchased four individual leather armchairs for our front room from John Lewis a number of years ago. Compton was one of them and soon became a firm favourite with us (and our dogs!) although all the other chairs have weathered really well too. It is still a wonderfully comfortable and comforting chair. Hopefully we’ll manage another one for our bedroom soon. 05 February 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely Armchair beware of the size for fitting through doorsframes I have been looking at this chair for a while now & I finally ordered it with the matching footstool. As always the quality of the both items is exceptional & really do change the look & feel of the lounge. However, do be aware that you have enough room to get the armchair through your door frames, it is not just the measurements but also the shape or the chair & the dimensions you need to be aware of. The wings of the chair do flare out making it difficult to get through a door frame at any angle. You need room to turn the chair to the side behind the door frame to angle it as the legs of the chair do not come off. The delivery men were excellent & very polite & did everything they could to get the chair into the apartment, as always very professional & skilled at what they do. . This is a lovely item & compliments any home. 05 February 2013
