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.
One answer to the problem, which has been developed over the last few years, is furniture which can easily and quickly be stowed away when not in use. Nowadays it is possible to buy inflatable chairs, and more conventional chairs which can be assembled or dismantled in a matter of seconds. It is on this latter principle that the knock-down chair has been designed.
Planning out your space is absolutely crucial when you are living in a small space. For safety you need to allocate a safe space between articles of furniture. In the case of between chairs and the sofa, a space of between 2 to 3 feet should be adequate to prevent hitting the exterior against the furniture every time you move. You also need to have a minimum of 2 foot between the front of your chair or sofa and your coffee table to allow you sufficient room when you stand up. You don't really want to overbalance and keel over across the coffee table if you lose your balance!
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.
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.
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.
