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.
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 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.
Should the armchairs for sale you're taking a look at are to be alongside a sofa, then you want to leave at least 2 feet between them. You also want to leave at least two feet between the armchair and coffee table to stop banging the knees each and every time you stand up!
The chair itself has to be in comparative proportion to your room you're placing it in. If you've got a large area, with heavy furniture, then a compact, thin-armed chair will appear delicate and out of place. If you've got a small room, then an armchair that's got thick arms and curved features will overpower all of your furniture. Either way, a room will appear and feel off-balance.
In the modern trend the armchair has become an important piece of furniture along with the sofa and other furniture that you buy to decorate your house. Purchasing the armchair requires special consideration as it will not only add to the beauty of the room but will also provide comfort and relaxation when you recline in it to watch your favorite show on the television or read the newspaper or just relax after a tiring day.
