Living Room Chairs & Occasional Chairs


Nothing quite adds taste and elegance to a living room or den like a comfortable, yet elegant chair. Perfect for late-night reading beside a floor lamp, or for watching your favorite television show, a good chair is a must for relaxed living. You may decide to have several chairs in your living space as opposed to loveseats or sofas for an individual, eclectic atmosphere. Mix and match chairs in your living space, or follow a common color theme to complement your decor.


Leather chairs add sophistication and style to any room in the home, adding a tasteful look to a living room or a comfortable vibe to a home office. Chairs range in colors from tan to deep espresso, adding warm, rich brown tones to your space. Opt for a deep and comfortable leather recliner, or a sleek leather armchair with a swivel function. Leather’s soft material lends it to damage if you have young children or pets, so do keep this in mind as you’re choosing your household furniture.


If you are in search of durability and longevity, woven and wood chairs are absolute essential. Woven living room chairs and occasional chairs easily light up your patio or outdoor space, and stand up to years of the elements for long periods of enjoyment. Wood chairs either offer a rustic, relaxed look in your living space or comfort in your patio, mud room or enclosed porch. Adding ottomans to your chairs offers you some extra leg room, as well as some extra storage space where you place your chairs. Delightfully colored slip covers and pillows also add a theme to your chairs. A blue and white nautical theme, for example, works well near the shoreline.


A chair in a corner nook is always a brilliant idea, especially near a window. Decorate your space with a comfortable swivel chair for comfort and elegance. Turn to look out the window, or swivel back toward a floor lamp to read your favorite novel. Easily complement your decor with a myriad of choices from Pottery Barn, offering woven, leather and fabric chairs for your every color and material need. White and beige tones offer brightness to a living space, while brown and tan add warmth to an office or den. Many swivel chairs already come complete with slipcovers to help protect against stains and damage.


Enjoy some of the most comfortable, plush chairs if you chose a soft recliner. A leather recliner allows you to put your feet up after a long day at work, or to curl back and read the morning paper before you head out for your day. Pair a comfortable recliner with a matching ottoman or end table, not only to complete a look, but to allow you extra space to place your needed items. Warm tones from tan to espresso complement any decor in the home, from a family room to game room.


When choosing a chair, an ottoman is the perfect complement for many reasons. For non-reclining chairs, ottomans allow you to put your feet up, and also give you a wealth of storage space. If you have young children at home, an ottoman is also a good alternative to a coffee table with sharp, potentially harmful corners. Match a sectional or leather ottoman to your existing living room chairs for a complete look. Stools also add a rustic air to a living space while adding deep tones.


Even if you don’t have young children or pets at home, slipcovers are an absolute must to keep your chairs well-protected from damage. Choose from basic, yet comfortable slipcovers that complement your existing decor without leaving your living room chairs and occasional chairs wide open to damage. White to deep espresso colors are able to match the color of the chair and complement the room.
