Planning your decor according to the size of your space is critical, no matter whether the room is large or small. Home furniture needs some space in between it to ensure proper room flow, traffic flow and safety.
The notion of reconnecting with the past may spur us to find antique furniture pieces and welcome them in our homes, but this is not the only reason why we do so. Our taste for old glamour sends us back to adoring beautiful carvings and exquisite craftsmanship of traditional and classical designs. Nothing beats Victorian armchairs in magnificence and intricacy. They are luxurious to look at and even more luxurious to sink in to. The luscious velvet upholstery envelops your body like a warm embrace. Chippendale armchairs with their pagoda or gothic designed backrests attract the eyes with their complexity and fascinating fusion of style. Chinese yoke back armchairs have light and curvaceous silhouettes with smooth and rich solid wood that reminds you of another dynasty, another culture. Some of the most extravagant looking antique armchairs came from the Queen Anne period when they served royalty and nobles, now they provide a comforting piece of sitting and lounging furniture in a modified classical living room or a masculine and eclectic library.
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 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.
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.
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.
