After a long day we all need to have a cozy place to rest and to do nothing for a while. That’s why designers provided us a great assortment of chairs of any size and form you can imagine.
Sometimes there is nothing better than a good book in a big chair. Oversized chairs can satisfy all our needs regarding comfort and rest, as they are impossibly cozy!
When choosing a chair, we consider not only the convenience, but also a general view of our interior. How would it fit our apartment? Will it suit the overall style or look like a black sheep in the interior?
Sit & Try
It is not a simple part of an interior, it makes us comfortable and relieves our tension, so be serious while choosing the armchair.
The first step is to investigate the offered range of production. In most cases, it is not the thing that can be easily ordered online, because you need to take into account so many factors while purchasing that it is better to try all of them personally.
Then, according to the design of your interior decide what suits and what is not. The chosen group must be practically examined, try all of them, and admit what do you like and what is wrong to consider it when buying.
The armrests should not be too high, the position of your hands should be natural and comfortable. If armrests are too low you will crook your spine while reclining.
The seat should be as soft as you want, ask the consultant about the stuffing of the seat. The most important is the position of your spine, the backrest should take the natural form of your spine, or after sitting for a while you will feel pain and no sense of relaxing. Also, explore the capacities of this item, make sure it has an extra space inside the seat, combine utility and look.
Don’t worry if you haven’t found the needed color of fabric, the form and frame are the most important features.
The frames made from hardwood and combined with staples and glue, or in some models from forged iron, are the durable enough, but made from staples or plastic ones will not serve you for a long time.
You can order upholstery of your choice, it will make your room look unique and individual. It is even more interesting than the offer in the store, you can have the color and pattern designed personally for you.
Oversized chair can be pared with the furniture you already have, but it is not obligatory. Just be certain it doesn’t seem out of place and is of the same style and palette with your furniture.
As an option easy chair can play key role in the design. It works when it has the bright color or interesting shape that coordinate with the total style and look of the room setting.
Decorate the seat with cushions, as they are soft, downy and beautiful. Cushions may be the same color as the chair itself, but also may add some pattern or contrast to the furniture set.
It is the cheapest way to change something in your interior. Blankets can also add some heartwarming atmosphere to your room.
The models that provide special comfort are usually coupled with ottomans. The first convenience – comfort to your feet. The second – an empty space inside the ottoman – the place where you can keep your books and magazines that you like to read in such coziness. The third – is a possibility to use it as a coffee table or as an extra seat when you have a lot of friends invited. Furthermore, ottomans and oversized chairs go well together and create a space for an imagination while decorating the room.
As a part of a style it is widely used in classic ( with buttons, usually made in velvet or microfiber, with legs), contemporary (of straight forms oriented on the comfort), industrial ( of interesting shape, with iron frame and leather seat), traditional (of different forms and homey look) ones.
Remember that regardless to style if the chair is too big in the small space it would visually make the room smaller. However, if the lounge placed properly and suits the space it would play for you and widen the room.
For the living rooms where you want to spend evenings with friends and family 2 or 3 chairs with ottomans are convenient enough. One ottoman can serve for two seats placed opposite, it is an excellent alternative, if you like to seat near fireplace with someone, or to read there together.
