Can you imagine being comfortable on a chair that has no armrests? It’s actually not that uncommon and definitely not a new trend. Plenty of traditional or vintage chairs featured an armless design. The idea is even less odd and unusual when you take into consideration that armless sofas and loveseats are also a thing and in some cases they don’t even stand out because of this design detail.
With a deep seat and an upholstered backrest that wraps around it, the Carol chair offers great support and a very comfortable experience. It’s part of a collection which includes a matching sofa and these can be used together in a setting such as a family room or lounge area. The chair has oak wood legs and a design that’s as unusual as it is comfortable.
The Casamance autumn-winter 2016 collection is focused around a stylish chair which combines a curved seat with a wingback backrest and the result is a very stylish design which can complimented with extra cushions. Consider placing a side table next to the chair to compensate for the lack of armrests.
Armless chairs come in a variety of different forms and styles. You can find a ton of cool chairs that fit this description in stores and if you want you can even use the idea as your inspiration for a new DIY project. Feel free to customize your old chairs not by adding something to their design but by actually removing an important feature. There are lots of uses for armless chairs.
One option is to use them as accent seats for the living room. You can use them in combination with an armless loveseat or sofa to create a casual seating arrangement. Another option is to have a set of armless chairs placed around the dining table. Their comfortable seats and backrests would be the key features in this case and, when you think about it, the armrests would only be in the way.
Other configurations can be just as promising and enjoyable. Picture a comfortable chair with an upholstered seat and backrest and a matching footstool or ottoman in the corner of a bedroom or in a library. It would be a pretty great reading nook. Add a side table and the image is complete.
