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.
As a result, we're sometimes forced to poke at devices in the dark, all while finding brightness settings that strike the delicate balance between readability and how much it disturbs our sleeping partners. We could always move off the bed, but what's more comfortable than a bed in a bedroom? An armchair could be a close second. It's a wonder more people don't have comfortable seating in their bedrooms for this very scenario.
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.
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.
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.
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.
