by Vedank Singhania Marketing Manager

When you are shopping for your new apartment, there are a few things that you can never miss. Like a sofa set, bed and a dining table, but there is a thing that lets you create a cosy spot in the abode to enjoy some leisure time! It is the armchair!

Yes, armchairs sound like a simple furniture unit but the one that takes most of the limelight. Arm chairs are the statement decor piece for your abode. The beautiful cushioned back and the perfectly cushy arm all together defines a typical arm chair.

These can be placed anywhere in the abode, be it in the living room, bedroom or on the patio, and these will bestow the area with a gorgeous and elegant appeal. From traditional florals to solid modern colours, every colour is available in their fabric upholstery.

These are available online in a variety of designs, sizes and styles, hence making the selection process of a perfect armchair, a daunting task! So, to help you out and to get you rid of this arduous task I have mentioned below a few points that could make your purchase worth every penny.

Give yourself plenty of time to think about what you actually want in your chair and consider these below-mentioned points while purchasing an armchair for your home.

1. Size of the armchairs:

Size plays an important role in purchasing any furniture unit including chairs as well. So, the first and foremost step to the buying guide of the armchair is to select the perfectly heightened chair. Decide where are you going to place it! Whether it’s next to a table or next to a sofa set. Measure the height of the furniture unit beside whom you are planning to set it up!

For instance, if you are placing it across a dining table then make sure that the person sitting on it reaches the table top with ease and does not have to strain his back to have a meal on the table.

Thus, making the proportions equal should be your priority. This will help you attain a unified look within the room.

2. High backrest armchair or low backrest?:

The backrest will define what are you actually looking for. For instance, if you want an upright sitting position in your armchair or you wish to be surrounded then get a high backrest armchair.

High backrest arm chair will allow you to read peacefully and the back will be highly comfortable if you are sitting for prolonged hours. Use it with a study table so that you can comfortably work on your PC while your back is completely relaxed. The low backrest can be the perfect chair for the dining table or a coffee table. 

3. The material of the armchair:

For the armchair to last longer with you; you have to choose the premium quality material for the foundation. These are present in wooden as well as metal material. But the wooden material is given the highest priority, the solid wood such as sheesham and mango wood are known to have perfect durability and excellent sturdiness.

Moreover, the material of the armchair upholstery can also be chosen. These are available in leatherette, cotton, velvet, etc. Choose the one that fits well with your decor theme, for instance, if you have a contemporary theme abode then go for leatherette. And if you have a traditional home then go for floral cotton fabric!

4. Customise the armchair:

From style to intricate patterns on the armchair to colour to be chosen, everything can be designed exclusively according to your desire under the customisation facility.

Decide the size, material and colour of the fabric for upholstery. Go for subtle shades that do not get affected by the direct sunlight. Go for greys, pinks, corals, reds, yellows, etc., that can instantly light up the decor.

If you are worried about the stains, then opt for removable upholstery cover that can be removed and washed and can be changed if you ever get bored with the colour. Choose the thickness of armchair as well, decide whether you want a thick upholstery or a thin one. Thick upholstery can last longer and can bear all the weight!


Give your abode, a beautiful and fantastically designed wooden armchair. Use the above mentioned steps to get the desired armchair that is worth every penny you have spent!
