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, through it`s colour scheme, texture and shape.
The feel, depth, width and height are key considerations that must be made when shopping for a feature armchair. The chair should be soft to the touch yet still provide the necessary support and be a suitable depth to accommodate the length of your legs. Additionally, the width of the seat and the height of the back and arms are also crucial for luxurious lounging. It is worth noting that feature armchairs don`t have to match the couch in the living room, but should complement and accentuate the partnering furnishings and chosen colour scheme to achieve an even balance. If you`re struggling to find the perfect armchair or can`t bring yourself to part with a treasured piece, reupholstering an existing armchair is also a great way to breathe new life into a room.
The funny thing about accent chairs is that they have now come a very long way from their old description. In the older days, even the ugliest armchair living room seat can be considered as an "accent" as long as it doesn`t match the sofa set, and it`s comfortable.
Today, on the other hand, with technology being more affordable and accessible, there`s not really that much need to have a specific armchair living room seat, since almost every room in most households now has their own TV sets. So, the traditional purpose of these accent chairs is not only reserved for the old room where the family seats to watch their shows together nowadays, because you can already put these seats anywhere in the house.
