Surely everyone will agree with the statement that the living room can be considered the beating heart of every home and flat. This is where we relax after a hard day at work, with a favourite book or film as our evening companion. It is also where we experience pleasant moments together, spending time with friends and family. Because of how important it is for us to have a functional living room, it is very important to choose the right lounge furniture.
In today’s article, we take a little closer look at the variety of armchairs and living room furniture sets available. We invite you to read the text!
Which living room furniture to choose? A lounge suite for the living room
The look and feel of any given living room depends entirely on our preferences. With small additions and decorations, we are able to fill the space so that its spirit fully reflects our aesthetic. Not everyone is aware of this, but lounge furniture also has a huge impact on the final look of our living room. When choosing the right models of corner sofas or armchairs, we should therefore pay attention not only to the comfort and practicality of their use, but also to the look, style and colour, which should be matched to the space. Another important element influencing the final character of the living room is also the matching of the furniture in question. A lounge set for the living room usually consists of several pieces, for example: an armchair, a corner sofa, a sofa. In such a case, it is best to buy the whole set at the same time from one manufacturer, so that we get a harmonious décor that creates a coherent and aesthetic whole.
Comfortable armchairs for the living room
The armchair is a unique piece of furniture that, whether it is part of a larger set or a stand-alone piece of décor, always looks good. Placed next to a bookcase in combination with a well-chosen lamp, it can create a cosy and comfortable reading corner that is a refuge for all bookworms. Placed in the company of a coffee table, TV and a corner sofa or couch, the armchair will be perfect as a classic piece of leisure furniture. An armchair with a relax function will allow you to unfold the sliding elements, which will turn a classic piece of furniture into a relaxation centre for every fan of long film screenings and more.
Leather or fabric armchair?
Both natural leather and furniture upholstered in fabric have their advantages and disadvantages. Choosing the right armchair is entirely dependent on our needs and preferences. To make the purchasing decision a little easier, we will try to briefly characterise both types of material.
Among the greatest assets of leather furniture are its durability and very elegant appearance reminiscent of exclusive interiors. Natural leather is safe for allergy sufferers as it allows for easy cleaning. Small dirt and dust accumulated on the furniture can be easily removed with a microfibre cloth. The downsides of leather furniture, apart from its much higher price, include, for example, the need for maintenance, which will help keep the leather in good condition for longer. A leather armchair can be a great choice for vintage-style spaces.
Fabric upholstered armchair
Fabric upholstered furniture is of course much friendlier to our wallets, but that doesn’t mean that it is unequivocally the better choice. Armchairs are available in many colours and styles, so the choice is much greater compared to leather versions. The pleasant-to-touch material “breathes” well, and does not produce the characteristic cold feeling of leather on first contact. The downsides include a much greater problem with the possible cleaning of dirt and less durability.
We hope that our brief overview will make it a little easier to decide on the ideal armchair for comfortable relaxation at home.
