    Re: meaning

    I am comfortable sitting in this chair. - the experience of well-being.

    It is convenient for me that this chair is near to the telephone. - fits my requirement to be near the telephone.

    Note also that both these words can be used either impersonally It is comfortable/convenient to ...., or personally I find it comfortable/convenient; they can also be applied to the subject It is a comfortable chair and It is in a convenient place. But the senses remain as Anglika says; those senses often overlap, but the difference is still there.
