The term “club chair” is applied to a certain type of armchair that is typically covered in leather materials. The chair was first invented in France, where it was originally known as fauteuil confortable, meaning comfortable armchair. The chair was named as such to distinguish it from the fauteuil de style, which is a type of chair that has less enveloping form and lines that are straighter. It is currently unknown about the chair’s craftsmen behind the design. The reason why it is named as “club” chair is also unknown. One theory exists that mentions about the chair’s prevalence and link to typical gentlemen’s club.
The chair is comfortable for seating and its form kind of envelopes the user. It hugs the occupier but not so much as it let the occupier sink into it. The chair’s design is lush, oozing luxury and class to enhance the room it is placed in.
The chair reeks with formal feel, which makes it a great complementary piece to a home office or a home library. Placed in a living room, the chair makes a great piece to improve an otherwise bland or overly minimalistic scene.
Characteristics of Club Chair
Club chairs have some characteristics that set them apart from other kinds of chair
Ever since its invention, the one character that sticks to a club chair is its classic appearance. This, however, does not stop the chair from being as relevant as it was. The diversity and charm of the chair have also grown according to progression of time. Flexible-lined and clean chairs were manufactured during the Art Deco Era while the Art Nouveau Era produced chairs that were direct opposite of the former.
Some styles appeared following the Second World War. Some of these styles make their way to modern times, including the gendarme’s hat and the moustache styles, both of which were named according to the shape of their respective backrest. However, the rounded-backrest style is the most common type of such chair.
Elements involved in the manufacture of club chairs are coloring, upholstery, fellmongery, design, and carpentry. Old club chairs were manufactured through cone-shaped double springs that were applied to cushion and the backrest as well as armrests. Suppleness of the springs was supplemented by coir filling.
Progress in industry led to the padding being replaced by no-sag springs coupled with synthetic foam and elastic webbing.
Several types of commonly used covering include cotton, velvet, bicast leather, and calfskin.
