Providing more than just additional seating, feature armchairs are versatile in their application and the purposes that they serve. When used in isolation, they can accentuate an interior design scheme, inject a burst of colour and/or add another textural element to a room, whereas when used collectively, feature armchairs can unite to create a functional, yet decorative furniture arrangement. Placed within your home office, bedroom or living room for example, feature armchairs can be utilised to complete an existing seating area. Alternatively, you can create a separate space entirely by positioning a plush armchair in a low-traffic area, such as next to a window, accompanied by a small table and lamp, to create a cosy reading nook. Whether it is championed as the focal point of a room or supplements the furnishings that sit alongside it, a feature armchair or two can add visual interest.
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.
The high back armchair has always been a common selection for hundreds of years. Armchairs generally speaking are normally found in almost every home, because they offer a high level of comfort. But a high back armchair takes things up a step! A combination of a high back and arm rests will mean the ultimate in comfort and support for your back, whether you are watching television in your lounge room or sipping a coffee and looking at the sun rise from the deck of the cottage.
Does it recline This feature completely depends on your own personal preferences. Some people prefer the added comfort of a swivel armchair that they can lean back in for a few minutes and take a good break from work. Others prefer a chair that has a strong, straight back and keeps their posture good; people have also commented that the stiffer chairs allow them to stay awake and keep working.
