The Armchair- A Versatile Piece of Furniture
| May 27, 2015

We have all grown up reading classics where atleast one character was sitting in an armchair near the fireplace or there was someone looking out the window while sitting in the armchair in the den. And then there were those who enjoyed a cup of tea with biscuits while sitting in a comfortable armchair out in the porch or balcony. How nice it would be if you had an armchair in your living room that blended with the colours, and was perfect for that lazy evening? Place a stool or a table next to the chair to hold your drink or books, and you are set for the evening.

Some might call it a sofa, some might call it the armchair, either ways it is one piece of furniture that everyone has in their home or longs for. Over the years, the armchair has evolved in design and style, and today we see numerous styles available in the market. In today’s day and age, the armchair is all about a symbol of comfort and elegance. If you had to pick one for your home, which would it be? We present you with a range of options from our design experts:
