From where I'm sitting, using it as a summer dining area seems unnecessary. Your summer dining area will be your garden or patio if you have the space, and if the weather is good enough, so why would you need what is effectively a tertiary dining area?
We can be ever so rigid in our thinking at times. Armchairs and sofas go in the living room, don't they? That's where they've always gone. That's where we relax in front of the TV, open Christmas presents, and have lazy evening takeaways when we can't muster the energy to set up the dining room. It's where we entertain and relax.
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.
Why restrict ourselves, though? There are a number of rooms that armchairs would easily fit into, and in fact, there are a number of use cases that are crying out for armchairs above all else. With handcrafted furniture companies (see below for an example), you have ample options to tailor an armchair to those specific environments. No need to worry about your armchair looking like it's been pulled straight out of the living room and is being held somewhere else temporarily.
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.
Conservatories are difficult to contend with, furniture-wise. Do you make the conservatory a secondary summer dining area, a bright working space, or a living room without a TV?
