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.
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.
As for the well-lit study suggestion, appealing though it sounds to work under the sun without contending with sudden winds, nothing renders a computer screen unreadable as quickly as sunlight shining directly onto it. Before you know it you've closed so many blinds to block out the sun you've taken away all of the benefits of the conservatory in the first place.
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.
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.
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?
