Fauteuil Chair: Pronounced as 'Foe-toy', This chair has a literal meaning as an armchair. This uniquely designed upholstered armchair was born in the late 1600 BC and got to taste the fame in the early 18th Century. With its use by the esteemed Emperor Louis XIV, this chair got more modified with the passage of time. This ornate design was supposedly used by mostly the men in the society. Therefore, another version of this prestigious chair, named Fauteuil à la Reine, was invented only for the use of Queen.
Thinking of the rocking chair, the first thing that conjures up in our mind is, either the image of an elderly person sitting on it and gently swinging or a pregnant mommy knitting woolens for her expecting baby. But this is not done because it is stereotypical, in fact, rocking gently on the rocking chair can give you boundless health benefits. If you have a sedentary lifestyle, then you do not have to worry much, instead try to ensure that you sit on a this chair more often. This is because swaying on the rocking chair can tone your leg muscles and releases endorphin, that decreases stress and increases mental stability.
If you are looking for the perfect chair to accent your living room furniture, a leather recliner is probably your best bet. Keep in mind however, that if you need the back of the chair to rest against a wall, a non-reclining lounge chair would be better suited. It might also help you to decide whether you would rather have a standalone ottoman, or a built-in foot rest. Some recliners have foot rests that automatically deploy when reclining. This would not be ideal with a standalone ottoman.
These are not cheap investments - you can expect to pay four to five digit figures - but definitely fulfilling, especially for those who love to collect antiques. One of the rules with antique chairs is that, the older and more worn out the condition, the greater the value. The quality of the workmanship and the amount of imperfections (remember this is a good thing) would also influence its pricing. If there are any replaced parts in it, the cost would - and it should - most likely go down.
