The armchair in the bedroom helps with a very 21st century issue - the quandary of laptop, tablet or phone use in bed while your partner is trying to sleep.
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.
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.
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.
Some of the most comfortable furniture pieces are the ones that have been in your home for several generations. They exude a welcoming and lived-in ambiance to which people easily resonate. A rococo armchair in the living room may resemble the chair that your great grandmother sat on in the black and white photograph hanging on the wall of memories. This brings a vivid sense of nostalgia that compels you to look back to the past. Furniture pieces made long ago have a valuable history attached to them. Resting in an antique armchair that was passed down through several generations, you can let your imagination take you away to those earlier times and make connections with those who sat upon that very chair as the decades passed.
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?
