When you look for any chair with moving parts, go to a showroom and try it out first. Does the mechanism move smoothly, without any grinding or bumps? How difficult is it to move? Be sure to sit in the chair the way you will at home. Check the comfort, the level of the headrest, and move the footrest and any other moveable parts. Since moving parts get more wear than the rest of the chair, you want to be sure they'll hold up to use.
Speaking of timeless styles, wingback chairs, slipper chairs or leather chairs, with or without arms, can make beautiful accent pieces to your living room and supply additional seating at the same time. Place one on either side of your couch or loveseat, or offset one extra chair with a plant or lamp on the other side.
Living room chairs should be lightweight and easy to move since they may need to be shifted to accommodate various activities and even differences in lighting at various times during the day. It may not be a great idea to use heavy varieties of wood like oak or rosewood. The color scheme should blend well with the colors of the couch, wall paint and other elements of soft furnishings like curtains and wall treatments. Chairs made of painted wood fit the bill, in terms of the ease with which these chairs can be blended into the decor, coupled with adequate strength.
One of the most popular types of chairs are wall hugger recliners. Wall huggers are extremely popular because they are very comfortable and can fit in a small space. They are called wall huggers because they can be put within inches of a wall and will not hit the wall once it's reclined. They can have cup holders, pillows, and many other different things to make the experience of sitting in one more comfortable and convenient. They vary in price as some cheap models can be found for about $300, and the high end ones usually go for about $900 or so.
Chairs that promote relaxation can also be added. What would be more relaxing than a massage chair? A massage chair has built-in electronic motors and gears that are designed to massage the person sitting in them. This living room furniture can be quite expensive. Homeowners can opt for ordinary recliner instead. This chair tilts back when occupied and has footrest that allows this chair to provide comfort to the person sitting than most of the conventional chairs.
