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.
First tale the two side panels and cut out the angled rear edge. To do this accurately, mark a line 25mm from the rear edge, then draw a line diagonally from opposite corners. Provided your two side panels match exactly in size, you can clamp them together and cut along the diagonal line to give a matching pair.
Now mark and cut out the slots which house the back panel. These are 165mm long, 13mm wide, and run at an angel of 82° to the top edges of the side panels. Use the methods detailed above to mark and cut them accurately.
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 important fact that you have to consider is the function that the room will involve. It means that if the room is such which will be utilized for frequent movements then it is better to buy an armchair that is not to bulky as shifting it from one place to another will be problematic. The position of reclining is also important that is if you want an armchair that should give support to your head then choose an upright armchair with hand rest.
A great rule of thumb is the fact that the bigger your space, the 'heavier' your armchair could be (and the other way round). A study covered with walls of book shelves and wood panels can accommodate a heavy, dominating chair. Look at armchairs for sale who have rich detailing and more classic design. For a more modern space, especially a smaller space, look for free standing legs and slimmer arm rests, and straight, clean lines.
