The Armchair Affair

Hooded Chairs

Who doesn’t love to snuggle up in a comfy armchair? This classic piece of furniture may not seem essential, but is, in the words of Voltaire “le superflu, chose tres necessaire” or superfluous but very necessary. The luxury of the armchair is expressed in its architecture: a deep, soft seat for your rump, a back (high or low) to sink into, and those devilish arm rests on which to lean leisurely.* The beauty in the armchair is that there are infinite options. You can literally find any seat in your favorite style at various price points to fit how you want to sit.

*If lazy comfort is your goal, experiment with ottomans and prop your feet up after a long day at work.
