The 6 leading brands of armchairs and lounge chairs for a reading corner
That’s what we’re talking about today, about the 6 most prestigious brands of chairs and armchairs on the market. At Molins Design we have used these designers and manufacturers to include some of their designs in our projects.
The reading armchair is a basic piece for any book lover. It is important that it has a firm structure and a textile or leather that provides ease of movement and comfort.
When deciding on a model, it is advisable to consider the general decoration of the reading corner.
The colour of the upholstery should match the overall style. In addition to this, it is clear that having a lamp is essential and it is always interesting to opt for LED technology. Finally, it is also a good idea to include a cushion that multiplies comfort and adds colour.
There are many types of armchairs and lounge chairs, but it is always a good idea to try them out to make sure that their design adapts to our body and our style.
Most common chairs and armchairs
It is difficult to classify the types of armchairs and easy chairs. The reason is that there are as many as there are designs.
However, it is true that there are a number of models that are the basis for many interpretations. These are some of the most common ones.
1. Armchair with footrest
If there is one thing more comfortable than an armchair, it is a model with a footrest. This makes your posture even more comfortable as your legs are stretched out. Our advice is that the footrest should be light so that you can move it out of the way comfortably. In addition, it is interesting that the lumbar area of the armchair is reinforced to keep the back well protected.
2. Armchair with wingback
Undoubtedly, this is the most universal armchair model of all. And perhaps one of the most comfortable. All brands of armchairs and lounge chairs have some model of armchair in their catalogue. They are comfortable armchairs with soft backrests and those two side pieces that we call ears. They are ideal for resting the head. It is clear that on many occasions this reading corner can become a refuge for a nap. Well, the wing chair is the best ally.
3. Rocking chair
When we think of rocking chairs, we always think of the image of the endearing granny and the pleasant swaying of the legs. Without a doubt, armchair and lounge chair brands have incorporated these curved legs into many of their models. In this way, armchairs are produced that combine a firm wooden structure with soft fabrics and legs suitable for this particular movement.
4. Armchair with wings
The last option is the wing chair. These are pieces that include lateral reinforcements that have a double function. On the one hand, they make the structure of the armchair more resistant and, secondly, they provide armrests. This makes the reading corner even more comfortable by allowing you to rest your arms and hold the book in question better.
