Lounge chairs are designed to be the ultimate in chair comfort, allowing you to lounge – quite literally, or sit and appear alert, complete with the required back support. Traditionally they lacked armrests, but a lot of contemporary models forgo this limitation; however many still include the classically styled ottoman – a theme stemming from the gentleman’s club of old England.
Leather lends a sense of grandeur and timeless style, and as with most leather sofas or leather accent chairs, the color and richness increase with age. A well-made lounge chair should last for generations, looking better each year!
