Questions and answers

How to choose the best color for an armchair?

The color scheme in one's space can be a result of necessity, but it has considerable effect on how you feel in your space. The two main things to consider for everything color is balance and associations. Balance means that the colors should be coordinated in some way, so that it looks like a unit. Usual techniques to achieve this are considering a color wheel, and selecting colors that are either quite close to each other, or relatively far, like on opposite sides of the wheel (giving you complementary colors like blue and yellow). Other color combinations are likely be somewhat jarring just based on how our eyes and brains process color. Associations with and emotions connected to colors are also important, and there are many guides for these from those by 19th-century Impressionist painters to modern interior design guides. In all likelihood these associations are cultural and learnt, which means that they can be very different in different cultures or for different individuals. Blue is often associated with productivity, but also stability, calmness and even sadness. Green is clearly the color of nature, and is considered to be associated with safety, luck and envy (though in other cultures this latter is yellow instead). White can be connected to peacefulness, innocence, cleanliness and emptiness, and, for example, mourning in India. Red is thought of as the color of friendship, willpower, leadership, desire and revenge - a very wide range of emotions. But it is clear that in nature, it signals danger or importance, so you probably need to put it next to a neutral color to allow the eye to rest. These emotions point in so many directions that these guides seem to boil down to just one piece of advice: pause and see what the color means for you.

How do I measure the space to fit an armchair in?

Measure both the width and the depth of the space where you'd like to put an armchair. The most accurate way is to use a measuring tape. Hold the start of the tape down at the edge of the area, and let it run to the other edge. Make sure the tape is not diagonal, or else you would overestimate the available space. If the distance is larger than what you can stretch to, ask someone else for help, or divide the distance up into multiple parts. This can be done by either holding the tape down halfway and continuing running it while letting the first end go, or by marking how far you have measured on the floor or wall, and start a new measurement. If you would not like to make a mark on your floor, you can position a pointy object like a pair of scissors there instead. Make sure to avoid dead places where the piece of furniture won't go like skirting boards. Also it may be necessary to take the height of the space and the item into account wherever the ceiling is uneven.

From the history of furniture: Chairs And Sofas Part 5

"Windsor chairs made and sold by William Gautier. High-backed, Low-backed, Sack-backed, and settees, also dining and low chairs."

The Windsor rockers are not so common as the side chairs, and of these latter those are most esteemed" which have a little candng on the arms — five fingers," it is called — but it is very crude work.

In the next Figure (88) is shown a Windsor chair and a Pembroke table, which are of more than usual interest. They belonged to George Washington, and were in use at Mount Vernon. In the year 1774 there was a sale of the furniture at "Belvoir," the Virginia seat of the Fairfax family, where they had hVed with almost feudal magnificence. George Fairfax and his wife went to England to attend to the estate in that country, and never returned to Virginia, so the next year they instructed that their dwelling and its con tents be sold.

George Washington, Colonel Washington he was at that time, seems to have given more attention to ac quiring household possessions than did Madam. There are constant records of his purchases, and he was a large buyer at the vendue which took place at Belvoir. He bought mahogany, brass, and copper ware, a toasting-fork, pillows and feather-beds, pewter plates and pickle-pots, china ware, Persian carpets and curtains. From Colonel Fairfax' own room he chose a shaving-table and a desk, and also a mahogany Pembroke table, for which he paid £l 12s.
