Choosing the Perfect Occasional Chair

1. Determine the Chair’s Function

If you are looking for a solely decorative chair, you can go with any seating that fits the image you have in mind. However, if you know you will be using the chair semi-regularly, you want to ensure that it is comfortable as well as visibly appealing. Carefully observe the room in need of the chair and see if maybe you would prefer an ottoman or a chair that allows for storage. Determine the uses of the chair before you begin your search.

2. Decide if You Want it to Blend In or Make a Statement

Occasional chairs make great statement pieces, consider finding one with a unique and bold pattern to serve as the focal point of the room. If you are wanting something more subtle, blend the chair into the room’s colour scheme or stick to a neutral shade that won’t grab as much attention.

3. Measure Out the Space You Have

Before you go out and purchase the chair you have been eyeing for months, take a moment to measure both the chair and the space you are planning to place it in. You may find that the chair looks out of place and too small in its designated space or is big enough to make the area feel cramped. Save yourself time and effort by doing quick height and width measurements to get a rough idea on sizing.
