What do you need to think about when choosing armchairs? For me, the first thing I consider is comfort. There is no point in having a great looking chair if you cant sit in it comfortably for any length of time. Being comfortable in armchairs is crucial, as how else are you going to sit and enjoy that two-hour movie! Obviously, the material covering the chair is important too. Leather is an incredibly popular choice these days and understandably so.
Don't think your choice of armchairs needs to match every other piece of furniture in your room. It's often with great effect that designers mix and match single pieces of furniture for a more individual eclectic look. So indulge, pick a lovely comfortable armchair and make it your space, you could have a throw to hand to cosy up on dark cold winter nights. Winter is a time when we appreciate our homes even more, when we come in from the elements. armchairs look inviting and most rooms have the space for at least one.
The notion of reconnecting with the past may spur us to find antique furniture pieces and welcome them in our homes, but this is not the only reason why we do so. Our taste for old glamour sends us back to adoring beautiful carvings and exquisite craftsmanship of traditional and classical designs. Nothing beats Victorian armchairs in magnificence and intricacy. They are luxurious to look at and even more luxurious to sink in to. The luscious velvet upholstery envelops your body like a warm embrace. Chippendale armchairs with their pagoda or gothic designed backrests attract the eyes with their complexity and fascinating fusion of style. Chinese yoke back armchairs have light and curvaceous silhouettes with smooth and rich solid wood that reminds you of another dynasty, another culture. Some of the most extravagant looking antique armchairs came from the Queen Anne period when they served royalty and nobles, now they provide a comforting piece of sitting and lounging furniture in a modified classical living room or a masculine and eclectic library.
