armchairs don't necessarily just have to be in the living room. A tub style chair is equally at home in a bedroom or even a bathroom if you have the space. Don't limit your comfort to just the living room. If you have a cosy corner in the kitchen, you could have an armchair or armchairs in there. After all our kitchens are often the warmest places in our homes, and a chair in there is a great place to sit with a book or newspaper.
Deemed the original accent chair, wingback chairs have long held pride of place in the living room. Evoking sophistication and refinement, high backs, arm rests and winged sides are characteristic of a wingback chair.
The notion of reconnecting with the past may spur us to find antique furniture pieces and welcome them in our homes, but this is not the only reason why we do so. Our taste for old glamour sends us back to adoring beautiful carvings and exquisite craftsmanship of traditional and classical designs. Nothing beats Victorian armchairs in magnificence and intricacy. They are luxurious to look at and even more luxurious to sink in to. The luscious velvet upholstery envelops your body like a warm embrace. Chippendale armchairs with their pagoda or gothic designed backrests attract the eyes with their complexity and fascinating fusion of style. Chinese yoke back armchairs have light and curvaceous silhouettes with smooth and rich solid wood that reminds you of another dynasty, another culture. Some of the most extravagant looking antique armchairs came from the Queen Anne period when they served royalty and nobles, now they provide a comforting piece of sitting and lounging furniture in a modified classical living room or a masculine and eclectic library.
There is a danger that this chair might end up being used as an incredibly luxurious shoe fitting point, however. If you don't think anyone in your family is likely to actually read under the stairs, the armchair may end up being more decorative than functional - which might not be a problem for you, depending on your circumstances.
