Wood is used for the basic frame. Pine or some other softwood is suitable, but a satisfactory and cheaper alternative is 16mm plywood. As with most manufactured materials, there are different grades of plywood and you should choose a high quality type, such as Finnish birch, which takes a very good painted finish on both surfaces.
If you are preparing to buy an armchair then the first thing that you have to keep in mind is the size of the room where you are going to keep the armchair. It should also match with the décor that is the other furniture that is kept in that room. The color of the material used in the armchair should be in harmony with the color of the materials used on the other pieces of furniture of the room. While buying the armchair choose the armchair according to the person who is going to use the armchair.
There is a danger that this chair might end up being used as an incredibly luxurious shoe fitting point, however. If you don't think anyone in your family is likely to actually read under the stairs, the armchair may end up being more decorative than functional - which might not be a problem for you, depending on your circumstances.
Use a tenon saw to cut the slot, following the rules on correct sawing techniques given in most DIY manuals. If you cut exactly to the marked lines, you will make the slot slightly too wide. Instead, position the saw so that one face is just inside and parallel to the line. When you have cut down the lines, cut out the short edge of the slot with a jig saw or chisel.
Many of the armchairs don't do that and many have seats at the wrong angle. Making it completely uncomfortable to sit in. However, a few manufacturers seem to take comfort, style and size into consideration. And from these few, it's possible to choose some that are not only suitable sized armchairs for small spaces but ones that evince plenty of real style as well.
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.
