Why our chairs mean so much
We don’t tend to think much about our humble chairs, but they give us so much. They support us when we need to rest, allow us to snuggle up when it’s cold outside and also have the ability to make a room look stylish and contemporary. We should all sing the praises of our chairs, whether they are large, soft much-loved armchairs or smart, straight-backed dining ones. Here are some examples of how chairs impact our homes in ways we don’t often realise:
- Aesthetic appeal
A chair can define a room. Whether it’s a statement, antique armchair, a mid-20th century style piece or our well-worn much-loved leather sofa. Chairs can set the tone for the style and design of a space, depending on what look you’re seeking to achieve. The furniture you choose reflects your taste and style and is usually an investment that lasts for many years. The chairs we choose are more than functional pieces of furniture but reflect our personalities and help us to define the spaces we inhabit.
Apart from our beds, the chairs and sofas we buy for our homes are among the next most comfortable pieces of furniture we own. When we come home at the end of the day, we want to sink into our favourite fabric and chair shape, into something that fits us like a glove. Whether you love the cool smoothness of leather or the plush luxury of velvet, you want to feel like you’re being hugged and to be able enjoy a space of relaxation and leisure. There are so many different styles of chairs –perhaps you’ve always wanted a chaise longue or an extending armchair, a funky egg chair or an ergonomically-designed lounge chair?

For those who love to have people round, you might want your chairs to make a statement. You might think that chairs aren’t important, offering a simple place for a person to rest their legs for a few moments. However, chairs can be a focal point of a room’s design. You want your guests to be comfortable, but you also want them to admire your furniture choices. The age of the people who are most likely to be visiting will also affect your choice. Teens, hipsters and young professionals might find your egg chairs irresistible but don’t expect your aging nan to take too kindly to getting in and out of one.
Chairs provide outstanding function every day, but only if you choose the right chair for the occasion. You wouldn’t want to eat your dinner from an armchair, just as you wouldn’t like watching a film sitting on a dining chair or kitchen stool. The chairs in your main living space are likely to be sofas or armchairs, which are available in a huge range of shapes, sizes, prices and materials. Dining room chairs are likely to be high back and firm or a bench-style seating arrangement. Chairs in the bedroom are often a stool-type that sits with a vanity table, or an armchair.
