Featuring the exact same angles and silhouette as our full-size Soto, its smaller sibling boasts the same design in a compact form and pairs perfectly with the Soto apartment ottoman.
Strikingly modern, Soto’s shape reflects the ultimate in museum-worthy craftsmanship, while maintaining an ultra-comfortable accessibility that even pets and children love. Though it may look intimidating at first, Soto’s lovability reveals itself the moment it arrives in your home. It’s sure to become the seat everybody wants - all the time.

Mid-Century Meets Modern

Yes, it IS possible to get museum-quality style in a size that doesn’t crowd your whole studio apartment. Our perfectly proportioned Soto apartment chair is ideal for pairing with the Soto apartment ottoman as both have significantly lower-profiles than their full-sized counterparts. Inspired by the Danish-modern Selig “Z” chair, this smaller Soto features a narrow silhouette and minimized legroom, true to Danish form.

Head-to-Toe Beauty

A modern twist on a classic piece, the Soto’s clean, sharp lines complement its comfy, durable, and long-wearing cushions to create the total package. And just when you think it can’t get more irresistible, its back panel features slats that make it look stunning coming and going.

    Chair, great; wait time, not so much
    We love the look of our new Soto apartment chair -- we needed a smaller chair for our space, but still wanted an investment piece. This fit the bill perfectly. We ordered before Labor Day and although the website said it would be delivered in 6 weeks, I had to reach out to Joybird to get an update after waiting ... 
  • Joshua S
    Beautiful wood and fabric
    We have a small living and decided to go with the apartment size Soto Chair. The two chairs fit perfectly, are quite comfortable, and very well crafted. Our only complaint would be that the stain on the two chairs are just a hair off in color, almost unnoticable. Otherwise, we are completely satisfied.
  • Michelle K
    Gorgeous and comfortable!
    I know... you feel like you have seen this chair by many other companies... but trust me, NONE are this comfy! Worth every penny!
  • Timothy S
    They are great
  • Jimmy C
    Classic Mid Century Design
    These Chairs Are amazing. I love the construction, the craftsmanship and the attention to detail. You have to see it in person to believe it. Looks like, and is built like, furniture that cost 3 times as much. Fabric color is very brilliant and is sewn so well. Couldn't be happier!
  • Stephen S
    Perfect reading nook chair
    Very pleased with my chair. The apartment size is good, but wish it was a bit deeper Very well made. The wood is so smooth, it feels great. Bought to fit into a tight part of my apartment that I turned into a reading nook and very pleased with how it fits in. The Vibe Sunkist material is comfortable and ... 
  • Sean M
    Comfortable and good looking chair
    We bought this chair for our condo three years ago. We've enjoyed that it is comfortable and has a relatively small footprint while still being distinctive to look at. It complements a walnut end table (purchased elsewhere) quite well. Despite getting a considerable amount of direct sun, it has resisted fading quite well so far.
  • Nicole G
    Love this chair!
    We love our new furniture! This chair turned out perfect: sleek, sturdy and comfortable.
  • Nicholas E
    Perfect addition to my office
    well worth the wait, this chair is beautiful. I had a small issue with shipping but the team was quick to respond and took care of me right away. would recommend!
  • Julian D
    Great Fit
    We ordered a quick ship version of the Soto chair to compliment the sectional we also ordered from Joybird. It was delivered quickly and without issue, and is a great comfortable addition to our home.
  • Thomas C
    beautiful addition
    My husband and I were looking for the perfect addition to our joybird couch and ottoman. The Soto without a doubt was our pick.
  • Matt T
    Perfect fit for our small bedroom
    Our 100 year old cottage home some tight spaces and this apartment-sized chair is a perfect fit. It is also such a pleasure in this day and age to be able to buy old-school quality while using today's buying technology.
