A great rule of thumb is the fact that the bigger your space, the 'heavier' your armchair could be (and the other way round). A study covered with walls of book shelves and wood panels can accommodate a heavy, dominating chair. Look at armchairs for sale who have rich detailing and more classic design. For a more modern space, especially a smaller space, look for free standing legs and slimmer arm rests, and straight, clean lines.
Should the armchairs for sale you're taking a look at are to be alongside a sofa, then you want to leave at least 2 feet between them. You also want to leave at least two feet between the armchair and coffee table to stop banging the knees each and every time you stand up!
Now mark and cut out the slots which house the back panel. These are 165mm long, 13mm wide, and run at an angel of 82° to the top edges of the side panels. Use the methods detailed above to mark and cut them accurately.
A continuing trend in modern furniture design has been the sacrificing of comfort for economy and space. While agreeing that those huge Victorian armchairs were really luxurious, designers today would argue that they would be very much out of place in a modern house, as well as being inordinately expensive. So, designers concentrate on producing chairs which can easily be mass produced and which fit contemporary tastes. Unfortunately of course, the result of such thinking is that most chairs manufactured now tend to merely ornament a room without being very comfortable.
The conservatory as TV-less living room argument is persuasive though. Perfect for entertaining guests before dinner, or even for day-to-day reading, web browsing, or just for sitting down with a cup of coffee and looking out at the scenery. You could start with an armchair, and then add other living room accoutrements if the armchair trial proves successful and desirable.
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.
