The different styles of feature armchairs vary greatly, and thus must be chosen carefully in order to effectively accentuate and enrich the interior of your home and ensure that they serve the desired purpose. Those boasting clean lines, sharp corners and crisp metal features suitably enhance a more modern interior design scheme, whilst armchairs that are punctuated by elegant, soft lines, rounded corners and earthy finishes have a tendency to complement traditional decors. Here are just a few of the armchair styles that you can choose from.
Padding softness and shape This is one of the most important factors to decide on when choosing a swivel armchair for your office. You do not want a cushion that is too soft, as this can cause back and neck problems. There are also certain brands that offer padding that has been specifically shaped to fit the curves of your body; because everyone is anatomically different it is advisable to try sitting in the chair at the store. Remember you will be sitting in this chair for long periods of time, so get something that is comfortable above all else.
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.
Retro style The retro swivel armchair is actually inspired by the designs of the late 60s and early 70s when solid, simple loud colors and unique shapes were a popular aesthetic in furniture making. This chair is a great addition for those who like all things retro, but the downside is that it has limited adjustability. The chair rests on a single swivel post and a circular stand, you can use a foot pedal to raise or lower the height of the seat and that is about it.
