An armchair is a type of furniture which your colonists can sit on. Armchairs can be placed at tables to allow your colonists to eat there; in front of televisions to let them watch; or in front of production benches to provide comfort as they work, improving their mood and allowing them to work longer before needing a break. Armchairs are more comfortable than stools or dining chairs, but can only be made from textiles.

Acquisition

Constructing an armchair requires Complex Furniture to be researched, a construction skill of 5, Building Material (steel, wood, plasteel, etc.) 110 Stuff (Leather/Fabric), and 14,000 ticks (3.89 mins).

Analysis

Armchairs are more comfortable than stools or dining chairs, but can only be made from textiles. This makes armchairs difficult to acquire early on, but very affordable once your colony has established itself, has filled its early textile needs, and either is habitually hunting or has tamed animals that can provide wool, such as alpacas or muffalos, or a cotton farm. The material used does not affect comfort, however it does affect beauty, hitpoints, flammability and value.

Chairs in general, and armchairs in particular are useful for preventing the "Uncomfortable" mood debuff and can even grant mood buffs at good qualities. For pawns with jobs that can done sitting in an chair, a normal quality armchair will maintain the "Very Comfortable" buff (+6) all day. Once excellent quality armchairs are available, with a comfort level of 99%, the armchair can maintain the +10 bonus all day. This is a significant bonus, equivalent to a drinking 2 beers a day but without the time constraint and without the cost, the addiction chance, the increased social fight chance and decreased manipulation. It is also relatively achievable once sufficient textiles are available - with a level 13 constructor has a ~25% chance to build an excellent or better armchair.

Thus, every dining table, recreation item, and production bench that allows sitting should have armchairs installed on them. Priority should be given to objects in continuous use, such as stoves and research benches, with less used objects such as telescopes and tables changed over last.

Comfort

Comfort is a measure of how fast a pawn will refill their comfort meter. A pawn sitting in a chair a higher comfort value will regain comfort proportionally faster. Comfort varies by quality but not material. Armchairs of the same quality level will all have the same quality, regardless of what they're constructed from.

  • Trade

    As of 1.2.2900, armchairs and dusters are the most of efficient method of turning textiles into products for sale in the core game, assuming a moderately skilled builder or crafter respectively, is available. If the Royalty DLC is enabled, this role is instead taken by formal vests and corsets.
