When it comes to armchairs, there are plenty of reasons to have but also not to have one. And I can understand completely if you choose not to. They can take up valuable space if you don’t have a big living room. You can end up with an unused piece of furniture if you don’t have a big family or people around often. It can even end up being just an excuse for you to leave your clothes or bag on it and just end up making a clutter.
But, in spite of all of the reasons above, you can make the armchair be the best piece of furniture you own. And I won’t just leave it at that. I will tell you in the following lines exactly how you can use a simple armchair as a key piece in your design. And why you should get your very own armchair as soon as possible.
I know that there are many different designs and sizes out there. But, in the end, we have to admit that armchairs don’t take up that much space. No matter of its size you can just put it in a corner until you need it. And even if you place it in the middle of the living room, it will work. Plus, the more integrated in the design it is, the more you will feel the need to use it.
We agreed above that it is an overall small piece of furniture, compared to many others. So, you can make it easily stand out without turning it into a sore for the eye or ruining your design. But make sure you do this smart. For example you can buy your arm chair in a very bold color, just like the first example in the list below. If you have a neutral colored living room it will fit right in and will be the star of your design. You can also take it a little further by adding a couple more accessories in the same color. Be it an accent pillow, a lovely vase, or even a small lamp, if you match the colors, it will bring the room together beautifully.
Since they are usually rather small, armchairs are also very versatile. And this gives you the freedom to do almost whatever you want with them. You can put them in any room you need, be it living room, bedroom or even office. You can place it in any part of the room without any problems. Furthermore, you can also move it whenever you like, depending on your needs, preferences, and ideas. It can sit very well near the couch when you have guests to entertain. And it will go back into its preferred corner when you want more space in the center of the room.
4. Reading Nook
I have to confess that I’ve always wanted my dream home to have a picture perfect reading nook. But then again, I don’t want an entire space to go unused when I’m busy with other things. And the perfect reading nook also requires a bit of an investment. So why not take more advantage of a cozy and comfortable armchair and make your very own budget friendly reading space? This would be, as the famous quote says: “hitting two birds with one stone”.
