Chairs

Everybody likes a comfortable armchair. But if the chair doesn’t ‘fit’ you, no matter how soft the fabric or what the style of cushions, you will never be really comfortable for anymore than the shortest time. And the more time you spend in your chair, the more important it is that you’re spending it in a chair that fits you.


What do we mean by ‘fit’?


There are some key dimensions – matching your measurements – that your chair should have. Whether we measure you (and we measure all our chair customers) or whether you get a friend or family member to do it, these measurements are the key to your future comfort:

  • The height of the seat – too low and your feet will get uncomfortable; too high and your thighs will feel the pressure
  • The width of the seat – too tight and your hips will become uncomfortable; too wide and you’ll not get the support you should have
  • The depth of the seat – too shallow and your bottom will feel the strain; too deep and your knees will never feel comfortable
  • The height of the seat back – the right height to give you the support you need
  • The height of the armrests – too low and you’ll find it difficult to sit straight; too high and your elbows and forearms will feel the pressure


Finding a chair that ‘fits’


There are three routes to go about finding a chair that fits you:

  • Most chairs come in just the one size – but it’s quite possible that the one size could be just what you’re looking for. We can help with the looking
  • Look for manufacturers who make the same style of chair in a range of different sizes (there are quite a few) and see whether amongst what they have to offer, is the one for you. Again - We can help with the looking
  • Buy yourself a chair which is made to measure – Something of an indulgence? No!

Think of it as an investment. You know you deserve it! Again, there are different options - We can help with the looking Finding a chair that does what you want it to do

Ask yourself a few simple questions:

  • Do I need any help getting out of a chair that fits?
  • Do I want to be able to recline the back?
  • Do I want to have my legs raised when I’m sitting?
