Support and comfort

The perfect reading chair should be supportive but not too laid back like a reading sofa. Usually, a design with a high, firm back and comfortable seat is winning combination.

Armrests

Armrests are an essential part of every reading chair. They help you hold up your tablet or book. The style, width and shape of the armrests can vary a lot, however, it will determine the look and feel of the reading chair.

If you are looking for an antique reading chair you should go for more classic and traditional armrests.

If you fancy something more modern and sleek there are arms made of metal without upholstering which would suit perfectly.

 

Height & Depth

Reading chairs look more inviting if they have short legs. A chunky leg always looks more casual, while narrow legs are more formal.

Also, your chair must be comfortable which means the depth of the seat is an important factor to consider. If you are taller a deep-seated chair will be ideal for you.
