If you are preparing to buy an armchair then the first thing that you have to keep in mind is the size of the room where you are going to keep the armchair. It should also match with the décor that is the other furniture that is kept in that room. The color of the material used in the armchair should be in harmony with the color of the materials used on the other pieces of furniture of the room. While buying the armchair choose the armchair according to the person who is going to use the armchair.
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.
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.
Wood is used for the basic frame. Pine or some other softwood is suitable, but a satisfactory and cheaper alternative is 16mm plywood. As with most manufactured materials, there are different grades of plywood and you should choose a high quality type, such as Finnish birch, which takes a very good painted finish on both surfaces.
There is a danger that this chair might end up being used as an incredibly luxurious shoe fitting point, however. If you don't think anyone in your family is likely to actually read under the stairs, the armchair may end up being more decorative than functional - which might not be a problem for you, depending on your circumstances.
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.
