Are you looking for an oversized accent chair with that sink-in comfortable cushioning? Do you want a beautiful, rich brown leather chair that looks and feels better over time? If you answered yes to either of those questions, then you will be delighted by what you discover in this review.

Haven’t you heard of Sunset Trading? We’d be surprised if you had. They don’t have a high profile, but they’ve been making and selling top-quality furniture for years. And they have a reputation both for excellence and for taking good care of their customers.

In the sections below, we’ll tell you everything the Sunset Trading Milan armchair offers so you can decide if it would be the perfect addition to your home. Let’s take a closer look at the details, starting now.

Key Features of the Sunset Trading Milan Deep Seating Armchair

The leather is the first thing you notice about the Sunset Trading Milan armchair. It is completely covered in 100% top-grain leather. It’s the type that softens over time and takes on a warm, rich glow that adds ambiance to whatever room it’s placed in. The color will mature into a vintage patina. Each chair will have its own depth of natural color. It’s the sign of true quality leather. Simply put, these chairs look amazing.

It gets better, though, because, in addition to looking like slowly evolving works of art, the company has taken pains to protect your investment.

Normally, spills kill leather furniture, but the upholstery on this chair has been triple-waxed. It doesn’t provide bullet-proof protection, but if you respond quickly to occasional, inevitable spills, the wax treatment’s protection works very well.

The next thing that grabs your attention is its large size. It’s an imposing piece of furniture with a wide and deep seat. It’s got plenty of room to accommodate just about anyone and boasts an impressive 400-pound weight limit.

As large and imposing as it is, you’ll be struck by the fact that there’s nothing ornate about this chair, which would run the risk of turning into an ostentatious piece of furniture. It has the clean, simple lines and styling of a contemporary club chair. As such, it will blend easily into just about any room you put it in and will work with a wide range of home décor schemes.

It’s also worth mentioning that Sunset Trading’s brand page features a wide range of furnishings designed to complement this chair. If you want to complete the set, check out the matching sofa and ottoman!

Dimensions Stats, Sunset Trading Milan Armchair, Brown Color

Chair Specifications

Moving on from the basic look and feel of the chair, let’s take a quick look at the dimensions and other statistics:

  • Overall Product Dimensions: 31” H x 40” D x 46.5” W
  • Seat Dimensions: 17.5″H x 23.5″D x 26.5″W
  • Back Height: 12” H
  • Arms: 22.5″H x 23.5″D x 10″W
  • Seat to the Top of Arm: 5” H
  • Feet: 1.5” H
  • Chair Weight: 93 lbs
  • Maximum Supported Weight: 400 lbs

The first thing to say about these stats underscores our earlier point. This chair takes up a lot of space, and since it weighs a hefty 93 pounds, you may require an extra pair of hands if you decide to move it or rearrange the room you put it in.

Also, note that putting this chair in a smallish room might overpower the space or make it difficult for other pieces to fit in. On the other hand, the generous piece size adds to the chair’s comfort level. There is plenty of room to nap or curl up with a good book. It would be great in a living room, office, or library if you have the space.

Adjustability and Comfort

In this section of our Sunset Trading Milan armchair review, we’d say that the chair isn’t all about looks. Its best feature is how comfortable it is. It’s going to knock you off your feet!

Let’s start with the seat. The 2” down feather topper gives it that luxurious, sink-in feelingThe second layer is fast-recovery memory foam. Memory foam softens and molds to your shape when you are sitting and then returns to its shape when you get up.

The third layer is a 2.75-density foam padding of the highest quality. This layer provides the cushioning’s comfort, support, and longevity.

The foam padding is reinforced with no-sag Pirelli elastic fiber decking individually encased in pocket coil springs. These high-quality materials give you superior support, which is exactly what you want.

Now, onto the back cushion. At 12” high, it is standard for a chair of this style, but we wish it were a little higher. Nothing is better than leaning back in a comfortable chair after a long day. Taller buyers may be a little disappointed, but the low back is still packed with comfort.

The back cushion has a long horizontal tuft that provides lumbar support. There is more of that high-density foam. The foam and dacron fiber is bagged and channeled to maintain the shape; then, it’s reinforced by no-sag springs. 

Last but not leastthe arms are wrapped in super-dense foam. This chair is defined by comfort from top to bottom.

(Almost) No Assembly Required

Unlike most chairs you can purchase online, this chair will arrive at your door 99% assembled. The only thing you’ll have to do is attach the four feet. Once they are attached, you won’t be able to see them at all because they are recessed.

Even better, they come with floor protectors to keep all types of flooring safe from scratches and damage, meaning you can put this chair anywhere and on any flooring without worry.

Pros and Cons of Sunset Trading Milan Armchair

We like almost everything about this chair. In no particular order, here are the things we think you’ll like best about it:

  • It’s upholstered with top-grain leather that looks great and ages well.
  • The leather is protected with a moisture-resistant layer, making the chair easy to clean.
  • It is delightfully comfortable.
  • It is built on a rugged, durable frame that can support a generous amount of user weight.

On the other side of the coin, the chair has weaknesses. Here are things you’ll probably like least about it:

  • It’s got a disappointingly low back that will probably be underwhelming for taller people.
  • It’s an incredibly expensive chair.

And despite the quality of the leather, it’s still not what we’d call a pet-friendly chair. Over time, sharp claws or objects may still puncture or damage the leather.

Sunset Trading Milan Armchair Review Conclusion

We can’t say enough good things about the Sunset Trading Milan armchair. Sunset Trading has used top-quality materials, and we are impressed.

If you prefer comfort, this accent chair is on your shortlist of options. If you want a leather piece of furniture that provides that lovely patina over time, you will find it. Its timeless, classic styling will look great in just about any home. This chair might be the most popular seat in your home or office!

The price is on the higher end, and that may be a deal-breaker for some. You can easily find lower-quality but similar-looking chairs, but you get what you pay for. This chair was built to last, making it an excellent investment.
