What Is Armchair World?
Our company is Armchair World and our "dot com" name is armchair.com. We have been on the Internet since 1995.
We chose the name Armchair World to metaphorically make the connection between being at your computer (the armchair) and exploring the world by way of the Internet. By making this metaphor we are not advocating a passive approach to experience and exploration. Rather we view the Internet as a portal to first hand experience and the "armchair" as representing convenience in doing your research. In fact we at Armchair World are runners and Yoga practitioners who believe seriously in staying fit.
Our topics are diverse and our articles are written by individuals with specific expertise in the fields they write on. We have sections on travel, cuisine, psychiatry, science, self defense and history. We think our take on these topics is unique.
In one respect we're like a magazine; however, unlike a magazine many of our visitors don't come through our front page. Those using search engines generally come to a part of Armchair World dictated by their particular interests. We chose to keep our separate topic areas under one roof so our visitors could take advantage of "search serendipity". You may be looking for a food recipe and also find just the answer to your travel needs or learn how a rainbow is really formed.
About our Company Store
Initially, we formed the Company Store to provide a source for a few hard to find items requested by our visitors. We then expanded little by little and now carry a fairly broad range of products - some even by our own design and manufacture. We take Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discovery, have an 800 number for ordering and have a shopping cart system to make your shopping experience a snap.

About Our Site Design
At our Internet inception in December 1995, we made the decision to keep our site information intensive rather than graphic intensive. This position hasn't drastically changed. Whenever we contemplate a functional and/or cosmetic upgrade to our site we use accessibility as a major upgrade criterion. Our site is easy to navigate and has a unique look and feel.
On the Internet we can be reached by pointing your browser to either armchair.com, www.armchair.com, armchairworld.com or www.armchairworld.com.
