You also need to ensure that you measure the outer dimensions of a piece of furniture - when you are limited for space, it is the outer dimensions that are going to be the important ones. It is as well to remember that whatever the outer measurements of your armchair are, the interior measurements are going to be smaller - so make sure you will have enough room to actually be comfortable when sitting in the armchair.
The size of a chair needs to be taken into consideration when you do not have a great deal of room to manoeuvre. When you are considering armchairs for small spaces you might consider a smaller version of a standard chair. This should be between 24 inches and 32 inches wide - usually ample room to allow somebody to be seated comfortably. Never leave sizing to chance, hoping that it will slot into that rather neat little place you have planned for it. You need to be ruthless with measurements - make sure you measure the space you have and the furniture you want to fill it with.
For centuries the armchair represented status in society and now is commonly seen, accompanied by an ottoman, in living rooms around the world. Individuals of great power and authority sat in these chairs giving them complete control over their people.
