Tub chairs: 10 of the best


10 best-selling tub chairs

Some of the best options around for this furniture item synonymous with comfort

By Jason Podesta |

An excellent feature of a tub chair is the support it provides to the back. Furthermore, it has superior support thanks to the big armrests that surround it. Their high arms and backs, often plush cushions, and low seats can make any room feel more comfortable and luxurious.

Smaller households are opting for tub chairs in particular as they have the comfort of an armchair but don’t require as much room as a sofa. Many find the idea of purchasing one appealing as they’re able to keep it in their living space as an extra chair or even as a decorative option.

The following designs are proving popular on the search-and-discovery website for furnishings and furniture ufurnish.com, which showcases products from more than 110 retailers all on one website.
