Your living room is the number one place in your home for social gatherings. The most popular piece of furniture that you could get for a living room is a stylish accent chair. The more living room chairs you have the better it is to host your guests.
You can use accent chairs to create a secondary seating area inside the living room or place the chair in such a way that it complements the textures and colors of larger pieces of furniture, like a sofa. Here are 10 types of living room chairs to spruce up your home decor.
Club chairs are roomy armchairs with deep comfy seats. They go well with a living room sofa and are usually covered in leather. It was first created in France and the name is believed to be a reference to the gentleman’s club.
Slipper chairs are low rising and armless chairs. These living room chairs are great for persons with a petite stature. Due to their low height, they aren’t ideal for tall persons. But, their small size allows you to place them in tricky areas where spacing is limited.
Wingback chairs have a tall back and winged sides (hence the name). These chairs have been popular since the 1720s. They make for good additions to a room where there’s a large sofa. They can even be used as the end pieces of a dining room table. These chairs can be a bit difficult to move around your living room due to their size and weight so it’s a good idea to plan ahead when decorating.
Wooden frames and covered backs and seating are the key characteristics of the bergère chair. The cushioning is loose making it easy to replace or customize to your liking. Normally, you’d find these chairs next to a sofa or matching ottoman in the living room.
Rocking chairs are typically joined to two curved pieces of wood that allow you to swing back and forth. There are rocking chairs with arms and others that are armless; sometimes upholstered, other times with cushions. The key benefit of having one of these chairs in your living room is for comfort and relaxation.
Tub chairs have arms that connect to the back of the seat. The arms are usually higher in comparison to other types of chairs. They are also round in shape and not rectangular like other chairs.
Roundabout chairs allow you to place extra seating in your living room. Their main purpose is to be able to fit into small rooms and spaces. Most have wooden legs with one leg that faces outward a square seat.
Chair and a Half
This is an accent chair that is very comfortable. A chair and a half is an over-sized chair that is wider than a standard chair but narrower than a love seat. They can come with loose cushions or they can have a tight seat and back. A combination of both tight seating and back with loose cushions is not uncommon.
