From its sophisticated shape to its impressive versatility, Briar is a smart addition to any interior. An invitingly deep seat make it perfectly proportioned for the art of relaxation. Make it your ideal reading nook, a spot for series streaming or a modish throne for that end of day cocktail.

Mindfully Made

Whether upholstered in sumptuous plush pile velveteen or a more structured weave to add some minimalist Mid-century polish, our Briar chair is sure to stun. Constructed by a team of master craftsmen from sustainable materials such as kiln-dried hardwood and premium fabrics, it’s a seat that was built to last.

Boxed Beauty

With its sharp, structural build and button-tufted cushion, the Briar delivers effortless Mid-century cool. Round, full-length bolsters add contrast to the shelter-style frame and offer lounge-ready, adjustable comfort, while iconic tapered wood legs give an airy elegance to the sturdy seat design.

    I love my conversational piece!
    This chair was carefully crafted and it showed once it arrived! the vibrant color! I can’t say enough about the quality of the numerous Joybird pieces I’ve purchased! So glad I stumbled across this site during my mid century modern search for furniture! Trust me...coming from a very meticulous won’t be disappointed!
  • Katie D
    Love them
    We love these chairs - got 2. I love how they are a bit wide and with the removable side pillows. I can curl up in the chair facing left or right or forward. I wanted something we could somewhat lounge in since our other couch is not so “loungey” feeling and these are perfect. My toddler also likes to ... 
  • Maggie G
    Love the fabric, color, and style, but legs could be better
    I wish Joybird offered other leg options for their sofas and chairs. This chair shape is fabulous and super comfortable, and the peacock fabric is gorgeous, but those wood tapered hanger bolt legs are SO overdone and boring. When I visited their Brooklyn showroom I asked about customizing the legs, but was told that if you put on new ones ...

    Fantastic chair for both working and relaxing
    I absolutely love this couch! Yes, it is large, but as a 5'3" person, there are so many positions that I can get in to satisfy my desired comfort position of the minute. I've spent multiple hours in this chair reading on my phone or typing on my computer, and I love that I can customize the experience by adding ...

    Glad I gave joybird a second chance
    I bought the Briar sectional from Joybird earlier this year. The couch is great but I had an absolutely horrible customer service experience - the order took over two months, they delivered a sectional with two different fabric colors, customer service was impossible to reach and it took over a month for me to receive the correct pieces. ...

    Great chair!
    This chair is awesome! Comfy, beautiful, just what we wanted.
  • Kris B
    Love the fabric
    The Briar chair is super cozy. I love the texture of the fabric and it pairs well with the couch I bought with it. I would definitely look for more furniture with Joybird.
  • Anthony P
    Style, substance and comfort!
    The Briar chair’s looks are exceeded only by its comfort! I purchased two chairs to go with my Briar sofa and was not disappointed. Communication was awesome with Joybird, and you are kept in the loop every step of the way! Delivery day arrived before I knew it and had my dream living room. This chair is so comfy and looks ... 
  • Angela M
    So comfortable!
    Just as is the case with my Briar Sectional Sofa, the Briar Chair is equally chic and comfortable. The "Royale" fabric is so lush. I have received so many compliments!
  • Chris B
    Great chair!
    Though it took a while for the chair to be built and shipped, it fits our living room perfectly . The quality appears excellent and the fabric/color is exactly as we thought it'd be.
  • Mandy H
    Amazing chair
    Comfortable! This chair is perfect. Wanted a chair to curl up in and read or have coffee. The Briar chair has exceed my expectations
  • Ted S
    Chair is absolutely wonderful
    The chair is wonderful great craftsmanship. And pretty much as advertised. Only reason I give this 4 stars and not 5 is that i Ordered this chair on February 27th and did not receive it until July 13th. This companies supply chain management is terrible. The furniture is only semi custom. You choose from a large portion of fabrics ...
