Be just like Sherlock Holmes with a classic Sherlock chair. It’s a steampunk home essential. This comfortable high backed chair is smart and refined, with a touch of class. Sherlock chairs come with and without studs, in leather and fabric. They also come in different dimensions.

The classic Sherlock chair is also know as a ‘Chesterfield’ and a great place to start would be second hand shops or Ebay. You may be able to pick up a nice second hand Sherlock chair like this gorgeous Ox-Blood red one. However, you can still get these style chairs new on Amazon and other stores.

The two main deciding factors on your Sherlock chair will be comfort and style. A nice high back studded chair is popular in steampunk living rooms, but if you are bothered about issues such as height and back support it’s always best to try before you buy. Some excellent steampunk colours are grey, black, brown, bottle green and ox-blood red.
