The back could be a bit wider. Also, how to make it more realistic depends on the style/design of the armchair; details…


Fabric doesn’t reflect light so strongly and smoothly. There are some areas on the chair that, because of the way the light is reflected there, make it look unrealistic. You need to lower the energy of the lamp. (I’m not sure if that’s the solution but you should definately tweak the lighting setup, because of those bright areas.)
The legs of the chair are shadeless black…
The fabric should be more “grainy” IMO. (Check out the attached images…)
Here are some images of armchairs that you may find usefull.
