At this time of year, people start thinking about freshening up their homes for the summer season, and a great way to do this is with a new chair.
A less pricey option than a sofa or a three-piece suite, a chair can either blend in to existing décor schemes or make a strong statement - the choice is yours! In this blog, we look at some important things to consider when picking out the ideal armchair for your living space.
Here is our advice on what to consider when researching your ideal armchair:
Size matters, but how does it fit in with your décor?
Firstly, think about the style of your home. Do you have a traditional decor scheme, or do you like to reflect the latest trends in your living space? It is sensible to decide in advance whether your new chair should team gently with existing furniture or if it should stand out for its modern good looks. We think our classic wingback Eden Herringbone chair fits the bill either way. The chair’s classic design and herringbone pattern fabric will easily blend in with most furnishings and yet the beautiful, modern shades keep this chair right up to date. What’s more, the Eden has a clever push-back recline system, so you can enjoy a comfortable and stylish chair, without taking up a huge space!
A practical yet stylish choice?
Reflect on how you are going to use the chair. What type of covering do you need? If you want an armchair that offers a nice place to relax after a busy day and yet makes a grand statement, look no further than the Ascott recliner. The advantage of having a leather chair is the fact that you can simply wipe down the cover when it needs a clean. Not only that, but the Ascott’s heritage styling will make a fabulous feature in any living room. Leather chairs are very comfortable and often represent great value for money, as they last a long time. And, with a leather chair, you know that you are making a furniture choice that is unlikely to go out of fashion.
A touch of class and comfort?
Last but by no means least, think about how comfy you want your new armchair chair to feel. If you are seeking a cosy place where you can snuggle down with a good book and a cuppa or glass of wine, then maybe the Orlenca accent chair is an ideal choice for you. The midnight blue velvet fabric certainly adds a touch of class to any room and makes a beautiful statement. What’s more, the comfortable deep cushioning and smooth velvet is soft to the touch; this timeless classic is also unlikely to go out of fashion.
Even though a new chair doesn’t represent as big an investment as other pieces of furniture, it’s still worth taking the time to think about your purchase. Sometimes, the choice can seem bewildering, as there are such a huge number of chairs on the market. Obviously, you want your chair to last a lifetime, so it pays to consider the style, fabric and level of comfort you need before making a final decision.
