The last harvest has been cut and the nights are drawing in fast, soon summer will be just a distant memory once again. So why not welcome autumn and winter with a new chair that will help you stay warm this year?
Classic Fireside Chairs
The classic fireside chair is designed to help keep you warm. The large wings are not just for show or somewhere to rest your head, they are designed to help capture more heat from a fire and create a warmer environment on your chair. So a good fireside chair with large wings is a great investment. Of course, fireside chairs do not only work with open fires – if you sit close to a radiator or by a sunny window, you will feel the benefit of the extra warmth that they provide. Not all modern fireside chairs are built with large wings, so here some of the best that do:
The Queen Anne Fireside Chair is a quintessential fireside chair with quality hand crafted wooden legs, patterned fabric and large wings and padded arms. You’ll enjoy many hours relaxing in this chair by your fireside or soaking up the sun in your conservatory, with a book in had and cup of tea by your side. An optional matching footstool is available too, so put your feet up and embrace winter.
Another popular fireside chair is the Kemble. It has a slightly higher seat than the Queen Anne, and the the seat cushion is 7cm deeper, making this a perfect choice for taller people. This chair allows you to sit more upright too, making it a great chair if you prefer to read rather than snooze. The tartan fabric will make this chair stand out among your plain leather and fabric sofas.
As well as the classic fireside chair, many of our riser recliners have high backs and wings to help keep the heat in, and some are heated too! These are the best of our heated and un-heated chairs.
The Ellen Riser Recliner Chair comes in a warm mink (other colours are available) and has waterfall back cushions to provide the ultimate in support and comfort. You can recline back to a lying position for the perfect snooze, and the small wings provide some additional warm and help block drafts. The lift function is ideal if you find it hard to get up from your armchair, especially after enjoying a hearty winter dinner!
For greater comfort we recommend the Jubilee Riser Recliner. It comes in 3 sizes and a choice of lateral back (pictured) and waterfall back, to allow you to chose the most comfortable chair for your body shape. It has a dual motor action that controls the backrest and foot rest independently, allowing you to find the perfect position to enjoy watching autumn turn to winter.
If you prefer a heated seat, then the Lynton Rise Recliner Chair with Heat and Massage is a winner. This chair not only warms up the leather upholstery to provide warmth where it is needed most, it also has mechanical massagers built in to provide a soothing and relaxing massage. As with the Jubilee, the chair will recline back and also gently lift you up to a standing position.
A Heated Cardigan
Another great way to stay warm without firing up the central heating system is with a heated cardigan. Our Comfi Heated Luxury Cosy works like an electric blanket, but is worn like a shawl or cardigan. Just put it over your shoulders, button it up and switch on. The mains powered heated cardigan will keep you warm all day long. It’s made from a thick fleece material, so even when not plugged in it helps to keep you warm. The front buttons allow you to open it up in case you start to feel too hot!
If your feet tend to get cold, why not pop them into our Deluxe Massage Foot Warmer? This snug foot cosy heats up to warm your feet and also provides an optional massage too. The inside is fleece lined and the outside is a soft-touch micro-suede that helps to retain the heat inside and keep your feet warm all day and evening.
With a few simple changes to your living room you can be sure to fend off the cold and enjoy winter a little more this year.
