Armchairs

Side elevation of a standard armchair design

Armchairs are variations of common chairs, but are designed with fixed armrests and are often upholstered and cushioned. The inclusion of arms on a chair provide extra support for users to enter and exit the chair with greater ease. Popular variants of the armchair are the reclining chair with hidden mechanisms that allow the chair to fold-out and the rocking chair with legs affixed to curved slats. Armchairs are often seen as essential furniture pieces for living rooms, lounges, reception areas, and larger bedrooms.
