For centuries the armchair represented status in society and now is commonly seen, accompanied by an ottoman, in living rooms around the world. Individuals of great power and authority sat in these chairs giving them complete control over their people. During the period of 6000BC, which dates back to ancient Egypt, ancient chairs were created out of lavish materials. Gold, silver, bronze and an array of jewels were etched or carved into these seats. Many of these chairs were decorated with such distinct qualities only the Pharaoh was deemed worthy enough to sit in one.
Ancient Greeces (8BC -6AD) take on chair placement and the people who sat in them were a great deal different than the civilization before them. The concept of lesser citizens sitting on the floor or stools was entirely the same. Greek culture thought of placing extra chairs in various temples in order for the gods to make their direct presence known to the land. Advance time thousands of years forward to modern day living this would be like another occasional piece of furniture that does not always get used day in and day out. If the gods truly sat in these extra chairs one would think it would not be a daily occurrence.
Living room chairs are a great way to expand seating options in your home or apartment. Not everyone wants to crowd together on a couch or loveseat, and older people or people with mobility challenges may not look forward to struggling out of a soft couch. Think of a pregnant visitor and you will understand how important a few living room chairs can be.
Recliner chairs that come with a separate ottoman are best used as design accents, alongside other living room furniture, given their unique look that sets it apart from plush sofas and armchairs. While you can choose to select one that matches the other sofas or loveseats, choosing a recliner that mildly contrasts with the other furniture can serve to turn the piece into the rooms focal point. For example, if your sofa set is all white, choose a recliner and ottoman done in a bright splash of color to make it stand out and draw guests eyes towards the space.
