Next time you are browsing your favourite store, for living room furniture, online or off check out these three armchairs.
1. Knoll Saarinen Tulip Side Chair and Cushion
These are rather pricey for the average consumer but if you can overcome the $1200+ price tag then you will be pleasantly surprised. It features a removable cushion, protected by a zippered cover, and is available in a wide variety of colors. The replacement cushion gives you the versatility to switch your décor on the fly.
If your original cushion suffers from overuse then the extra one helps protect your investment while putting your mind at ease. Designer Eero Saarinen considers this to be an ultra-modern chair in which you can spontaneously find a place throughout the home to put it to good use.
2. Panton Classic Chair
Another great, arm free, option is Danish designer Verner Panton’s classic solid plastic one piece chair. The shape is refreshing and the lacquered surface adds a glossy finish into the mix. Not just a great piece of viewing pleasure, attracting comments from guests, but manages to offer a comfortable place to sit.
It was designed to contour to the body, with a wide base giving enough room for your legs to hang freely. This is another pricey chair, $1400+, although feasible due to the fact it has won many awards over the years. Most notably would involve the achievement of earning its right in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
3. Tub Chair
The comfort factor in these chairs makes it a great addition in any home office. If you are a student then you may want to have this on your list for that perfect study room. Many of these chairs, depending on the brand, offer swivel capabilities making it easier to get away from your desk.
If facing the front of a desk is not your style then no problem it will work well with occasional furniture, such as an ottoman. Who doesn’t want to put their feet up on those late nights squinting at a laptop or reading a good book?
Lastly you may want to do as much research as possible when buying to get the most out of this chair. They are sold in many different colors, sizes, shapes and styles to suite your personal taste. However, if you want top of the line quality the most popular model is the leather version of this chair.
There you have it, three great armchairs that look great in any room of the house but have the functionality to work well with any living room décor.
Final recommendations: If buying from a store or warehouse the best option is home delivery as they are rather bulky products. Online purchasers have the option to have it directly shipped to their home or arrange a pickup at the local retailer, if available.
