Here’s Why the Turner Chair is the Perfect Seating Choice For the Men in Your Life

If you want to really spoil Dad this Father’s Day, we recommend surprising him with the Turner Leather Armchair. Many of us remember our fathers or grandfathers having a special chair (perhaps this special chair involved naugahyde and a reclining feature). Needless to say, most of the time these special chairs weren’t the most aesthetically pleasing.

Luckily, the men in your life can now have the best of both worlds, since the Turner Leather Chair melds the ultimate in comfort with rugged, handsome good looks you’ll want to show off. In honor of Father’s Day, we’re giving Pottery Barn fans the chance to win a Turner Chair.

We love the styling on the Turner, with its high back, square arms and deep, cushiony seat. Curious about where the Turner got its distinctive look, we turned to Brice, one of Pottery Barn’s furniture designers, for the story.

When we caught up with Brice, he filled us in on the inspiration for this chair. “I was traveling in London and got caught in the rain,” Brice told us. “I happened to look into the window of a pub and noticed a fireplace and two leather chairs next to it, and it seemed like a perfect way to escape the weather. A few minutes later a friend and I were sitting in those leather chairs, sharing cocktails and stories in comfort. Those chairs were the inspiration for the Turner chair.”

From a London pub to your living room . . . our designers find inspiration all over the world for our customers!
