Understanding the Basics

The Significance of Armchairs and Ottomans

Armchairs and ottomans are more than just furniture; they are the soul of a room, offering a place to unwind, read, or enjoy a cup of tea. This pairing can add depth to your living area, create a cozy reading nook, or offer extra seating with a touch of sophistication.

Varieties to Consider

Armchair Styles

  • Modern Minimalist: Sleek lines, minimal ornamentation, and a focus on functionality.
  • Bohemian Chic: Eclectic patterns, vibrant colours, and a mix of textures.
  • Traditional Elegance: Rich fabrics, detailed woodwork, and timeless designs.

Ottoman Forms

  • Storage Ottomans: Combining utility with style, these ottomans offer a place to store blankets or books.
  • Pouf Ottomans: Soft, often round or square, adding a casual or bohemian vibe.
  • Bench Ottomans: Longer in length, perfect for adding seating at the foot of a bed or alongside a window.

Factors to Consider When Choosing

Size Matters

Measure your space to ensure the armchair and ottoman fit comfortably without overcrowding. Consider the scale in relation to other pieces of furniture and the room's overall size.

Comfort is Key

Sit in several armchairs to test their comfort. The perfect chair should support your back and allow your feet to touch the floor comfortably. Ottomans should complement the chair's height, offering an extension of relaxation.

Material Selection

Fabric Choices

  • Leather: Durable and easy to clean, leathers ages beautifully, adding character over time.
  • Velvet: Velvet offers a luxurious look and feel, bringing a touch of elegance to any space.
  • Linen: Light and airy, ideal for warmer climates or a more casual setting.

Durability and Care

Consider the wear and tear your furniture will endure, especially in homes with pets or children. Choose sustainable materials that match your lifestyle and offer easy maintenance.

Style and Colour Coordination

Complementing Your Existing Décor

Select a colour and style that harmonizes with your current interior design. An armchair and ottoman can serve as a statement piece or blend seamlessly with your room's aesthetic.

Creating Contrast and Texture

Introduce texture through your choice of fabric, adding depth and interest to the room. A contrasting colour or pattern can also serve as a focal point, invigorating your living space.
