Choosing the Perfect Armchair

by Aoife Ní Dhonghaile

There is a reason armchairs have been christened Accent or Statement Chairs by the interior design community. The armchair you choose can greatly add to your decorating scheme. Here’s a list of everything your Perfect Armchair should be.

It Should be Comfortable

Koko Armchair - €549.95

It should be the chair your family squabbles over sitting in. The hot seat – if you get up for any reason you could safely bet that your seat will have been re-assigned and happily occupied in your absence.

It Should be Beautiful

The chair should be like one of those things that you spy through a shop window on a stroll and are still thinking about not only hours but days later. My theory is that if it’s calling to you that strongly and you’re remembering it fondly up to a week later... it’s meant to be. You’ll be looking at this chair every day for a long while so you don’t want to tire of it. Ensure you are blown away with the style and glamour of it from the start.

It Should be Worthy

Pop in to whatever shop you spied it in, to suss it out. Assess the price, colour, size and delivery charge (if necessary). Gather all the necessary info and take a picture of the product so that you can reevaluate when you get home and visualize how it might suit the space you have. We often recommend to customers to map out the dimensions of larger products in the space they are considering it for. This way you’ll have a clearer idea of how much of the room it will be occupying.

It Should be Worth It

Get your money and your times worth! I view this purchase as an investment. Not only have you been investing your time into sourcing the perfect accent chair for you home, you’ll also be spending some cash. So make sure you are beyond happy with it i.e. you love Love LOVE it and that it is of good quality; perhaps check whether it comes with a guarantee as it is bound to be in your home for years to come. Choose one worthy of all your time, efforts and dollas.

It Should be Cherished
