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.

The seat panel has two slots cut in it, corresponding to those cut in the front edge of the side panels. Each slot is located 64mm from and parallel to the short sides and is 368mm in length.
If you trawl through the enormous array of different styles that the various manufacturers, you may notice that most armchairs seem to lack in originality. The problem with many designers is they seem to forget people have to sit in the chairs and it's the act of sitting that inspires the design of the chair... not the other way around. Furthermore, the armchair is designed to be sat in with comfort in mind: where backs, buttocks and arms should be supported ergonomically to take the pressure off the muscles across the shoulders and lower neck.
