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.
Despite the fact that you will find lots of versions and types of chairs, 3 happen to be the most enduring and the most used all through the years.
Sitting in an armchair for the entire day can make it difficult to stand up if joints and muscles are particularly weak or painful. The Arran manual riser chair contains a manual seat lift that greatly assists the rising and lowering of the user gently into and out of the seat. The luxurious Arran armchair is also available with a king size seat or the seat depth, height and back height can be customised to the users specific measurements for optimum comfort.
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.
