Chairs designed without arms allow seating access from three directions. The temptation for guests to use the arms as a spot to balance a beverage glass also is removed with this design.
If your rooms seem crowded but you need extra seating, try replacing a bulky armchair. You may be amazed by how much more visual space a sleek armless chair can add. Many times you can open up enough space for a pair of armless chairs by just replacing one chair with arms.
Armless chairs are often ideal for small rooms, such as a secondary bedroom. Their size and scale can vary from very petite to comfortable and plush.
They are also great options for dining rooms. It is easier to pack a dining table with additional chairs if you don’t have to contend with chair arms. Think of your guests. They will find it much easier to slip out of an armless chair at a crowded table.
Consider investing in an armless chair that you can move from room to room, which will add to its versatility. It may start off in your living room but end up in a guest room. The Middleton chair from Anna French, upholstered in oatmeal linen fabric from Thibaut, has wonderful tailored details including self-welting and diamond tuck upholstery. Neutral upholstery is always timeless.
Armless office chairs provide many benefits. A smaller width can be a great space-saver. That’s important as many of us transform utility rooms and small guest rooms into home offices where every inch of space counts.
An armless chair may fit easier under the desk and have narrow enough proportions that you can stow the chair out of the way when it’s not in use. The smaller your office, the more important this benefit becomes.
Armless chairs are also easier on the budget. Without adding arms, manufacturers can produce these designs at a lower cost.
Furniture stores are filled with wonderful armless chair options. If contemporary or midcentury modern is your preferred design style, then you have to check out the Lance chair by Bernhardt Interiors. Its sleek lines and metal base allow it to float in a room. With seating that is 33 inches deep, it is spacious and comfortable for watching TV or relaxing.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with bold colors and prints when purchasing an armless chair. These designs let you move a little out of your comfort zone. When it comes to color, it’s a good idea to experiment with smaller furniture rather than a sofa or pair of overstuffed lounge chairs.
Regardless of the color or the fabric you choose, you’re sure to find many benefits in having armless chairs in your décor. They can easily become the best seats in the house.
