One almost universally beloved factor about furniture like armchairs is the level of comfort that they provide. After all, whether a chair is designed for relaxation or seating company, everyone loves to feel comfortable. At Pottery Barn, we know that you value soft seating with firm support. So do we. All of our armchairs have thick cushions into which you can sink. They’re also made with high-quality materials by master artisans, so they last a lifetime. Our armchairs deal is the time to add that piece you’ve had your eye on to your furniture collection.
There are many other factors that can help you pick out an awesome armchair for your living room, bedroom, dining room or other interior space. For example, an armchair’s size comes into play both when looking at the dimensions of the room where it’s going and activities that take place there. There are no hard and fast rules for contrasting sizes. In fact, sometimes an oversized armchair makes a striking artistic statement in a smaller living room. Being aware of size simply lets you give the room the kind of ambience you want, whether it’s spacious, intimate or just right.
It’s also good to keep in mind the way you usually like to sit. If an armchair is for curling up with a good book, a wider chair is helpful because it provides lots of space for your legs. Something with a low back is very fashionable and lets you stretch your arms all the way out. This kind of style is popular for conversation areas since you can see everyone easily. However, if leaning back for a nap is one of your favorite activities, go with a high back that supports your neck. Accent pillows and throws also play a part in adding extra comfort for your body, so you can be pretty flexible with both design and functionality.
Another thing to think about is whether you want an accent piece, one that stands out in the room, or complementary furniture. To use an armchair as an accent piece, go for something that looks distinctive, either because of bright colors, sharp contours or some decorative detail, such as a tufted back.
One of the most important aspects to consider is your taste in art and decor. After all, the arrangement that gets you most excited is usually the one that’s sparked by your imagination and creativity. If there’s something you just know you want to have, get it. It’s not hard to find a spot for pieces about which you’re passionate.
A lustrous upholstered wingback chair can fit beautifully into traditional layouts, for example. However, with a faux fur throw and a metallic floor lamp nearby, you instantly give it a chic and vintage look. The takeaway from this is that you should have some fun with it and don’t be afraid to take a leap for something awesome.
It’s OK to think outside the box when deciding where an armchair fits best. One traditional place is across from a sofa or sectional for talking with guests. That’s a wonderful possibility since it gives the room some sophistication while still staying comfortable. However, you don’t need to stick with the same style as your sofa. A leather armchair looks amazing as an accent piece with an upholstered sectional.
Want some other cool spots for an armchair in the home? Give your dining room a modern vibe by replacing the dining chairs at the head and foot of a rectangular dining table with large armchairs. A group of pendant lights overhead enhances the room’s sleek and artistic flair. Give your home office some second seating with a corner armchair and a side table for drinks. One purpose is that, sometimes, ideas come easier when you sit back and close your eyes for a second. Plus, if a friend comes to visit, you can chat a bit while still staying close to your laptop and office phone.
