The most remarkable antique armchair is a treasure to be found especially if it is in excellent condition and maintains its original magnificent appeal. Purchasing an antique armchair requires a serious decision-making task. They are a challenge to combine with your contemporary furniture pieces and they cost more than most of the new designs that are available today. You have to be an excellent scavenger and must have a keen and adoring eye for the beauty possessed by the old and the classical.
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.
Feature armchairs feature quite heavily in the interior design schemes of many of our projects. Regarded as quite important pieces by the design team, they play an integral role in pulling a design scheme together. Quite often we select couches in more neutral colour schemes and then accent these with armchairs in vibrant prints that inject a burst of colour. With the style and comfort deemed paramount, the feature chairs that we tend to gravitate towards are those with a unique point of difference to create visual interest and a hint of the unexpected.

For this amount of money you get a chair made with a walnut finish and covered in quality leather. The chair offers a number of adjustments for your overall comfort; it actually looks similar to a first class seat on an airplane. You can adjust the head rest position, back support angle and height, armrest heights and raise or lower the whole chair. This model also comes with a matching footrest, just in case you want to sleep a little.
