The armchair in the bedroom helps with a very 21st century issue - the quandary of laptop, tablet or phone use in bed while your partner is trying to sleep.
While the rich and famous might have the space for a thirty-seating cinema in their basement, the rest of us don't. So the rows of plush cinema seating that the stars have aren't really of any use to us. A handful of armchairs would neatly achieve the same objective, though.
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.
Provided both side panels have been cut to exactly the same size, there is no reason why you should not clamp them together with all edges flush and cut out paired slots at the same time.
It is possible to have cushions made up for you by professionals, but they are easy to make yourself from rubber and the covering of your choice.
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.
