Lots of people really do not think of the Adirondack as being a high back armchair, but that is what it really is! Perfect for usage outdoors or even with antique decors, this particular design was first designed in the early 20th century and known as a plank chair. These are created using eleven wooden planks, and also have lower seating, plentiful arm rests along with a sloped back. Cutting-edge versions are manufactured from numerous kinds of wood, and you may also find them manufactured from plastic material (although they are not as comfy, or as rustic, as the timber kinds).
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 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.
Adjustability Everyone is physically different, so you want your chair to allow you as many adjustments as possible, for example for your height. Some swivel armchairs come with a foot pedal near the base, this raises or lowers the height of the chair and can easily be changed to suit different peoples needs. Other chairs have a dial instead; the problem with these is that they can easily become stiff or too loose when over used.
