armchairs do not necessarily just have to be in the living room. A tub style chair is equally at home in a bedroom or even a bathroom if you have the space. Do not limit your comfort to just the living room. If you have a cosy corner in the kitchen, you could have an armchair or armchairs in there. After all our kitchens are often the warmest places in our homes, and a chair in there is a great place to sit with a book or newspaper.
The swivel armchair is a great invention that adds an element of comfort to our homes or workplaces. Would you believe that the designer of this wonderfully functional piece of furniture was Thomas Jefferson the third president of the U.S.? He is actually known for creating various different devices that now make our lives a little easier.
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.
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.
