Recalling signature Mid-century modern designs, this sculptural armchair is an everyday work of handcrafted art.
Make a meaningful first impression in your home with the Paley chair. From its elegant upward curving wood arms and plush cushioned seat casually slated back, it’s the ultimate Mid-century echo with a contemporary tone. Embrace its design charms in your personal space, either as a welcoming foyer piece or a family room fixture.

Knock on Wood

Carefully crafted from our finest kiln-dried wood and plush eco-friendly padding, the Paley chair carries it’s sharp, minimalist style on it’s sleeve. Sure it's got a bit of laid-back attitude with it’s angled seat and all, but it can certainly still get into the formal living room. Punctuate this classic with the shade suited for your space.

American Beauty

With good design, it’s often hard to tell which feature is its most endearing. For us, it’s a toss up between Paley’s upwardly curved arms and subtly reclining back, defined by handcarved wooden slats. Ideal for homes with a thoroughly modern perspective, the Paley chair puts style anywhere you need it most.

    Beautiful and Comfy
    Having ordered a few pieces of furniture online with poor results, I was skeptical. Don't be. The chairs are better than expected. They look fabulous, are comfortable and most importantly are well made. Buy with confidence, I highly recommend and will use again.

    Paley Chairs Bring Back Memories
    I love these chairs! I grew up with furniture just like this. It feels right just looking at them, but sitting in them is better. Thank you, Joybird, for keeping craftsmanship alive!
  • Julie D
    Most comfortable and stylish chairs
    We ordered two Paley Chairs for accent chairs in our living room thinking they would be used for extra seating and they are the most popular seats in the house! My mom is even ordering them because they are so stylish & comfortable!

    Loving this chair
    Loving this chair. The fit is perfect for my post- hip replacement body without appearing "orthopedic". Hip angle is relatively open, knees are comfortably square to the floor, and back is both relaxed and upright (with small lumbar pillow). Looks great. Doesn't take up too much space. Will be ordering a second one.

    Paley Chair
    Comfy and good looking. It's my cat's new favorite perch.
  • Jennifer D
    Great chair!
    We love our Paley Chair in Maple and Cordova Picante! It's firm and comfortable and looks great in our place! Only reason it's 4 instead of 5 was the delay in getting it to us, took nearly double the quoted time.
  • Connie G
    Good chairs, good memories
    These chairs are well made and look great. They are reminiscent of the first furniture my husband and I bought when we married in 1959. The style was called "Danish Modern" then, Mid-century Modern now. Love them!
  • Angel H
    Awesome Design!!
    Remarkable design and ergonomics. A truly beautiful piece of furniture. Unfortunately the wood color wasn’t exactly as expected! Other than that no complaints.
  • Nicole A
    Beautiful and comfortable
    We love our new Paley chair. The style is both modern and classic, with beautiful lines and shape. And, it's so comfortable! We love it.
  • Marci
    Great for living room conversations
    We purchased two of these chairs to face our Joybird sofa. Together they make a comfortable and organized conversation space. Originally I wished the chair back laid back was another 10 degrees, but since sitting in them several times I have decided that they are perfect the way they are. These aren’t curl up and read a book chairs, ... 
  • Erin T
    Not Worth the Wait
    My chair was delivered almost 3 months late. It is a nice chair and seems to be well-crafted, but for the price, it was definitely not worth the hassle or the wait. I wish I had just gone to West Elm or Pottery Barn. I am disappointed in the customer service I received throughout the process (not proactive at all ...
