Fun shapes also come in the form of chairs centred on a solid chrome or stainless steel base with wool upholstery being common. Modern chairs in this category are available in an abundance of colours and designs ranging from bright red tulips to white studded lazy chairs. These and everything in between can be situated in your lounge, bedroom and even office!
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.
The squat style chairs with heavy backs that were carved like a piece of paneling gave way to taller, more slender and elegant chairs. The framework of these chairs were less carved and new directions were taken as far as how these chairs were ornamented. Cabinet makers of the Restoration began to take advantage of the opportunities given to them to design these new chairs. Chairs began to take on an elaborate construction with graceful semicircular ornaments that connected all four legs by a vase shaped knob in the center. The arms and legs of the chairs of this period were scrolled with the splats of the back containing a rich arrangement of spirals and scrolls.
Although much English furniture comes from French and Italian influence, the early forms of English chairs owe very little to influences outside of England itself. This is especially true towards the end of the Tudor period. It was during this time that the French began to take their chair designs from the English.
