Armchairs (especially the squashy, sink-into-it kind with brightly patterned fabric) are a great place to sit and read. They're also a great place to dump your clothes when you're too exhausted to hang them up at night. If you're using the one in your room more in the latter capacity, consider selling the chair. Adam Hutter, owner of Hutter Auction Galleries
, says classic wingback chairs by Baker
are popular at auctions and can sell for $600 to $1,000 apiece.
