Thinking of buying an armchair? Take note of our tips and be sure that it will become your favorite piece of the house.
1. CHOOSE THE SIZE AND STYLE ACCORDING TO SPACE
Not too big, not too small. In order for the armchair to blend in with the environment, it is essential to choose the right size, but you must also take into account the style of the decoration, and bet on eclecticism with moderation. Come on, if the space is classic airs, you’d better forget about the excessively industrial seats, but you can play with the mid-century without fear of being wrong.
2. NATURAL FIBERS TO REJUVENATE THE ENVIRONMENT
It is a fact: the natural fibers rejuvenate and refresh environments. Wicker, rattan… Any armchair you choose will look great in the living room or bedroom, as these types of materials adapt like a glove to different styles. For an even more flirty touch, decorate the armchair with a cushion or plaid.
3. CAPTION: THE ETERNAL UPHOLSTERY
Classic, elegant, chic… The tufted upholstery will never go out of style, and its design is capable of enhancing any room, that’s why we see it so much on headboards and sofas, but did you know that it also feels great in the seats?
4. DON’T FORGET THE FOOTREST
Another essential element for any self-respecting reader is a footrest to match the armchair. Your legs will be more rested, and when you’re not using it as a footrest, you can turn it into a perfect side table to place your book, phone, glasses… Isn’t that a super ingenious solution?
5. LEATHER AND AGED LEATHER FOR INDUSTRIAL FANS
Do you love retro or industrial style decoration? Have you always dreamed of living in a New York loft? You can fulfill part of that dream by getting yourself a leather or aged leather armchair, and refresh it with a cream or beige plaid or cushion.
6. CUSTOM UPHOLSTERY AND COLOR
Another key that will help you find the ideal chair is to choose the right upholstery. We are not only talking about the quality (which must be excellent due to the long hours you will spend sitting in it) but also about the fabric. Are you passionate about leather armchairs, or do you prefer the soft touch of velvet?
Once you have it clear, you will only have to decide the color. Remember that if the living room is decorated in neutral tones, you can create a point of contrast with an armchair in intense color, even stamped. But if the decoration is already colorful enough, choose an armchair in a calm tone that does not clash with the rest of the elements.
