An armchair is simply a single-seater couch, generally living up to its name by having a comfortable back and armrests. A good armchair works well with most lounge suites, but can also look good in a study, perfect for settling into with a good book. If you want to take your comfort to the next level, you can purchase a reclining armchair.
Let us start with what most people associate with contemporary seating; thought provoking shapes and vibrant colours. These can provide a burst of colour to areas of your home you never thought possible. Plastics, in particular acrylic is a popular material used in modern chairs due to it being easily mouldable and durable. Eero Aarnio's ball and bubble chairs are a prime example of this; the way in which plastic is used to encapsulate the user in a cocoon-like surrounding, whilst simultaneously dampening outside sounds and amplifying inner ones, gives the user an individual seating experience. Acrylics are also used to construct extravert shapes that would be extremely difficult when using other materials. Silhouettes consisting of swirls, S shapes and sharp curves are dominant features of plastic chairs and will look amazing in most interiors aspiring towards a modern vibe. Their freestanding ability allows them to appear as if they are almost floating in the air, a feature that is unique to acrylic contemporary seating.
Ah, pure luxury! You may have seen a beautiful, velvety chaise lounge, which is basically a long chair whereby you can stretch your legs out without having to use an ottoman or foot stool. Naturally, its translation from French means "lounging chair", and that's exactly its purpose. Chaise lounges come in various sizes and designs, with some holding onto their French influence with regards to their style and finishes. A more vintage chaise lounge will most likely be made out of luxurious suede or fabric. Due to its relaxed reputation, the chaise lounge will usually be found outside on the patio for some real lounging. Chaise lounges are excellent statement pieces in your living room, or alternatively at the end of your bed, if your bedroom is large enough. Only use chaise lounges outdoors however if they are made of a hardy, weather-proof material.
In the past, a chair was just that - a place where you would rest your aching back. Designs were straightforward and simple and you would be foolish to expect anything more from chairs. These days, however, chairs have become art in themselves. Some pieces are so cleverly made that they look like objects of art but double up as comfortable chairs too.
