07 Aug Oppulently occasional
Occasional chairs can be stunning pieces of furniture that can bring a whole room together. Often when you have a sofa, two chairs, an ottoman and end tables the room still looks like it needs something. Just adding one occasional chair to the setup can finish off the room beautifully.
You can also accentuate colour with an occasional chair. For example, if your furniture is covered in neutral colours and the scatters on your sofa are in different shades of blue, upholster the occasional chair in a toned-down blue.
Another stunning look with an occasional chair covered in a neutral fabric, is simply placing a folded throw, vertically underneath the seat cushion and over the back part of the seat.
It also works quite well to have two occasional chairs in your dining room, that, when looked at, is a nice little seating area, but functions as extra seating if needed. This little seating area can also be used by you and your partner for having coffee or a glass of wine after dinner. Small seating areas also work beautifully if you have a symmetrical room, where you can then have a seating area at both ends of your dining table, for example.
There are hundreds of different designs of occasional chairs, which makes it ideal for any themed interior. And by upholstering an occasional chair in your choice of fabric, also makes it a very personal and unique piece.
So if you have a problem with a room that does not feel finished, add an occasional chair and see the magnificent difference it will make.
