WHAT IS AN OCCASIONAL CHAIR AND HOW TO USE IT?

Occasional chairs are truly a design miracle. Occasional chairs are both stylish and functional and can be used in virtually every room in your home. When styling an occasional chair there is no need to choose style over function or vice versa when it comes to the décor solutions an occasional chair offers.

There are many benefits of using occasional chairs in and around your home. Occasional chairs also known as accent chairs, can be strategically placed around your home to create an option for additional seating. Occasional chairs should be strategically placed in your home to complement the space and add to the overall look and feel of your room.

If you are short on seating in your living room, an occasional chair or two can be used to provide extra seating for your family and friends. When styling an occasional chair in your living room, it can either match your current living room furniture or you can use your occasional chair as a statement piece. If you are shopping for an occasional chair for your living room, a Leather Gallery Furniture Store near you is sure to have the perfect occasional chair for your home.

When styling your master bedroom, we often first start with furniture items such as a bed, side tables and dresser as these take first priority, we often forget about the smaller finishing touches. An occasional chair can be the perfect addition to your master bedroom. Accent chairs are the perfect home furniture item to use when you are looking at adding or experimenting with colour, patterns and textures. An occasional chair is a perfect spot to cuddle up with your favourite book or unwind after a long day. If you are looking for a way to add style and function to your bedroom you might want to look at adding an accent chair.

When using occasional chairs as part of your home furniture, whether it is for functionality or to add a ‘wow’ factor to the living space where the occasional chair is being used, the next important purpose of occasional chairs is a placement feature. If you’re using the chairs for their pure function of creating extra seating, make sure that you aren’t just randomly placing chairs around the space, resulting in it feeling cluttered and busy.

If you’re using an occasional chair as a placement feature item, ensure that you choose a placement for your occasional chair that adds to the ambience and aesthetical component of your space and that it does not detract from this.

When choosing an occasional chair for your home, it is important to be creative but also conscious of the space you’re filling. Accent chairs are great furniture pieces to test your creativity on around your home. Firstly, it is important to be colour conscious when choosing an occasional chair; do you want your occasional chair to stand out and catch your guests’ attention, or are you after something more neutral and timeless, that will look good in almost any setting.

When selecting colour, shape and material for your occasional chair it is important to take the style of the room into account, look at furniture items that are already in use in the space, consider their shape, colour and upholstery. By doing this you will ensure that you make a choice that compliments and adds to the overall look of your interior, making your occasional chair versatile and not just a token piece that you can only use once.

Once you have selected the perfect occasional chair for your space, do not forget about the finishing touches. We like to add a scatter cushion or a luxurious throw on our occasional chairs to complete the look. Not only will this add to the look and feel of your space, but it will also create a warm and inviting space to have a seat and relax.
