If you secretly want to feel like a movie main character making the most important plot-driving decisions or the boss who controls the entire town, do yourself a favor and grab a cigar chair. These bad boys are ideal to introduce a fascinating, old-fashioned sense of tradition and classic movies while blending majestic and cozy vibes.
Don't let this vintage look fool you, though! While they're obviously a must in retro and period-based décors, they can easily work in more contemporary settings too depending on which model you opt for.
These chairs can be placed in the living room or even in your studio or home office, especially if you wish to immediately convey a sense of authority.
So how do you find a cigar chair that matches your needs and room?
First of all, these models are usually made of leather---although you can now find some faux leather options---and showcase a warm finish. Whether you prefer a lighter or darker look, that entirely depends on your personal preference and the existing style of your room and furniture.
As for designs, there are two main types of cigar armchairs:
throne-style designs are the most elegant and majestic (perfect if you want to emphasize their sophisticated feel!) and they usually include brass nail heads;
rounded-back chairs are more casual and relaxed, which makes them more versatile and suitable to complement other recent, less specific interior styles.
Be sure to decide where exactly you're going to place your new chair, first: you don't want it to look cramped by leaving little to no room around it!
We also recommend choosing a spot that doesn't lead to your chair being constantly exposed to direct sunlight: sadly, leather furniture can actually fade after a few years if you do so.
