CLUB CULTURE

BY RIMAL HAQ

CLUB CHAIRS ARE COMFORTABLE AND ROOMY ARMCHAIRS that have extra deep seats, perfect for dozing off or curling up with your favorite book. These armchairs are reminiscent of French décor and have been a classic feature in the interior of French homes since they were invented in the 19th century. They were originally referred to as “fauteuil confortable,” but gained the name “club chair” when an abundance of gentlemen’s clubs began to use them during the 20th century. Despite the original French design of a square back, scroll arms and a thick cushion, contemporary construction of these chairs has broadened the look, and club chairs have invariably become an American classic.

Annelia tufted red fabric club chair, $239. Visit dotandbo.com.
