The size or the scale of the chairs should also be considered while buying comfortable chairs for living rooms. Chairs which are too big or too small will appear extremely awkward when it is placed in the rooms. The size of the chairs should be appropriate enough not to draw too much attention away from the focal points in the living room. It should neither be too small in size. It should blend with the other furniture and enhance the décor of the room or home.
One of the first things to consider while choosing comfortable easy chairs for your home includes the color and style of the chairs. It is important to choose chairs that blend perfectly with the existing decor of the room. Choose colors that blend with the drapes, curtains and upholsteries of the living room.
A point often forgotten when purchasing chairs is restoration, as few surviving examples would not have been repaired at some stage. When purchasing chairs, it is not unusual to spend more money with a good restorer than you actually paid for the article itself. The repair of a chair, the most used object in the home, is expensive when compared to, say, a chest of drawers. If restored properly, a chest of drawers may need serious attention only once every 50 or so years, where a set of chairs may need attention on a frequent basis. Sets of chairs that are let go for generations often need a lot of attention, even to a point of needing to be steamed apart and re-glued which takes time and patience. A single chair often consumes more time than for a dining table. Even now in our local area, it is not easy to find a competent tradesman to repair sets of chairs, as they all look upon them as 'charity' jobs.
Australian chairs followed the designs of their European counterparts very closely, the major distinguishing factor being that our local cedar timber was not as hard or as tight grained as the mahogany used in England, and was prone to breaking through the short grain of the back legs or in the shallow turnings and tenons. Bearing these problems in mind, cedar chairs will often have larger proportions to allow for the lesser structural properties, and most examples show considerable wear to the legs, especially the front pair. Fine quality examples of Australian cedar chairs are made of select cuts of cedar utilising the closest and straightest grained timbers for strength and also for their similarity to mahogany. There was quite a prestige associated with being able to afford goods from abroad, primarily England.
