They often appear bulky, old-fashioned and dusty. Lounge chairs combine comfort and style and can be strategically placed in the room. In this way, they become an eye-catcher and can enliven the room. You can stage them specifically as a centrepiece, or integrate them into the room as part of the whole. The different designs and styles of lounge chairs are discussed in more detail below.
A perfect symbiosis of comfort & design
Lounge chairs come in many different styles and shapes. As a rule, they are characterised by a deep and wide seat. The backrest is usually half-height to high. Many lounge chairs also have armrests or a side border to rest hands and arms on. The most important trademark of lounge chairs is their stylish design, which does not compromise on comfort. Lounge chairs come in many different designs and shapes. Their design ranges from modern-minimalist to retro, but most designs are chosen so that the armchairs fit in with as many interior styles as possible. Relax chairs are particularly comfortable. This form of lounge chair has a reclining function and is equipped with a stool. This makes it particularly comfortable to lie down and invites you to take a power nap. Such an armchair fits best in the living area as a complement to the sofa or as a separate individual piece. Variations such as the wing chair are also very comfortable versions of the lounge chair. When the word wing chair is mentioned, many people think of the classic upholstered sets. However, these chairs are now available in modern designs, which include stylish bucket seats or comfortable executive chairs. These pieces are closest in shape and use to a classic TV armchair, but are much more stylish and slender. Characteristic features are the high backrest and a lateral boundary at the head to be able to rest it comfortably. These designs enable the versatile use of the wing chair, which is not only limited to the living room. Other variants, such as club chairs and cocktail chairs, are particularly suitable for furnishing a seating group. They have a smaller format than the previous variants and are also well suited for smaller rooms or corners. They have chair format, but are characterised by a lot of padding and high comfort compared to chairs.
Style, material, shape and colour set the tone
Many variations in covers and colours
The choice of covers is versatile and offers solutions for different requirements. Leather has a particularly noble and high-quality look, but needs occasional care and is durable and robust. The smooth surface makes cleaning easy and uncomplicated. A cheaper and easier-to-clean alternative is imitation leather. In the meantime, imitation leather can hardly be distinguished visually from real leather. Whether imitation leather or genuine leather, both covers give a lounge chair a high-quality and serious design. The materials are not only durable and easy to care for, they are also particularly suitable for allergy sufferers. Whether velvety and shiny or discreet and woven, fabric offers a wide choice for the personal lounge armchair. In this way, the armchair can be optimally adapted to the living room, office or garden. Waterproof versions can be used well outside on the balcony or in the garden and are usually wipeable. A particularly soft and pleasant option is a fabric made of velvet. This is a good choice for rooms that you want to make particularly cosy. Classic fabrics such as cotton, are breathable, durable and available in a wide range and variance. There are hardly any limits to the colour of the fabric. Muted colours such as beige, grey, brown or black are classic. These colours are neutral and can be integrated into many environments. Black, grey, beige and brown have a particularly noble and high-quality effect. If you want more colour, you can also use colourful covers. These can be used specifically as colour accents. Red and green are colours that are just as high-quality as muted colours and bring a retro flair to the furnishings. If you want to furnish with trendy colours, you can go for light pink or light blue. These colours look inviting and cosy.
Finding the right style
Since there are many different types of lounge chairs, there are also many frames. Classics are the typical frames made of metal. These are particularly stable and durable. They are therefore often found in lounge chairs for the garden. Metal frames offer the advantage that they are simple and at the same time look modern and timeless. This makes them suitable for many furnishing styles. Wooden frames provide a cosier atmosphere. They not only provide a stable foundation for the armchair, but also enrich the living area with a natural, cosy flair. Swivel armchairs offer a particularly practical frame. The seat can thus be turned around in a practical way. Well-known versions of lounge chairs are club chairs, recliners, wing chairs and cocktail chairs. Cocktail chairs and club chairs are ideal for seating groups because they are comfortable to sit on. Wing chairs and recliners are particularly suitable for relaxing. Lounge chairs can be found in many styles. Modern and minimalist armchairs are typical for offices. The straight-lined design looks noble, professional and of high quality. Furniture in retro style is more personal and romantic. The furnishings are given a particularly nostalgic touch and lend the surroundings a cosy atmosphere. Furniture in Scandinavian design has been highly trendy for a long time. The Scandinavian style is characterised by wood, light colours and clear shapes. It appears minimalistic and cosy at the same time.
The versatility makes the lounge chair a favourite piece
Lounge chairs are real all-rounders for the home. If you want a comfortable armchair for relaxing, watching TV or reading, you are well advised to choose a recliner or wing chair. For seating groups, cocktail chairs and club chairs are well suited because they offer greater comfort than chairs and are space-saving. Lounge chairs can also be placed well in the garden or on the balcony. This way, you can also relax comfortably outdoors. For the best experience, it is worth paying attention to certain features. A stool is a good choice if you want to lie comfortably on the armchair. This way, you can comfortably put your feet up and stretch out in a relaxed manner. If you want to rest your arms, you can choose a lounge chair with armrests. Models with adjustable backrests are ideal for optimum comfort. Lounge chairs with swivel feet and castors are practical. This allows the armchair to be optimally adjusted and used flexibly. Cushions can be used to set small accents and increase comfort. These can be upholstered according to individual taste and give the furniture a particularly personal touch.
