What Your Favorite Chair Says About You
Take your pick and have a seat!
We all have a favorite chair. It’s the armchair you plop down on first when you get home, or the dining chair you fight over with your sibs. Or it’s the accent chair you keep guests from sitting down on, because you’d like to preserve its pristine, precious state.
Regardless of the make or type, your fave chair possibly reflects your personality. We’ve rounded up the common favorite chair types, just for fun.
You’re a modernista who knows your midcentury furniture history. You will go straight for the Eames DSW Eiffel, because it’s iconic, relatively affordable, and fits into small spaces.
Update it: Don’t be afraid to mix it with other chairs, whether designer pieces or not—this will give your room (especially a dining room) a more playful edge.
You’re someone who appreciates a more traditional decorating style. Or you’re an almost-Tita—and that’s not a bad thing, especially if you’re attuned to the finer things in life.
Update it: Have your bergere reupholstered in a bright, graphic fabric for a fresher, hipper look.
You’re a DIY diva (or you just want to save money). Why buy a P30,000 pseudo-vintage chair when you can achieve the same hipster effect by taking an old palo china crate and flipping it over?
Update it: Put a cushioned pillow on it, for more comfort. Or go one step further by having a carpenter transform it into an actual chair.
You’re trendy, and you want to make a statement. You like signature pieces, but stick to famous Filipino designers like Kenneth Cobonpue because his designs go well with your lovely tropical home.
Update it: Bold chairs like these are best appreciated as accent chairs. Keep the rest of your furniture streamlined and simple.
You’re a child or a teenager with a PS3. Or you have a very large and sleepy dog.
Update it: For a more grown-up version of a beanbag, get a stylish Sitting Bull beanbag from Boogi, 3/L, LRI Design Plaza, Makati City.
You're a film and TV buff with a Netflix subscription.
Update it: Go for a more gender-neutral upholstery like suede instead of black leather; your wife would love you for it. Get an original La-Z-Boy from Blims.
