Welcome to the wonderful world of chair selection! Whether you're looking to add some new seating to your home or simply refresh an old, worn-out piece, there are so many options available that it can be overwhelming to decide which type of chair is the right fit for your space. Below, I've put together a quick guide to help you navigate the different types of chairs available, and how to choose the perfect one for your home. Let's get into it!
1. The Wingchair
Wingchairs, also known as wingback chairs, are characterized by their high backrest and wing-like armrests. These chairs are timeless and elegant, making them a perfect addition to any living room or sitting area. They're perfect for curling up with a good book or taking a mid-day nap. And the best part is that they can easily be upholstered in a variety of fabrics to suit your style.
2. The Side chair
Side chairs can be dining chairs or accent chairs, are smaller in size and are often used as extra seating in a living room or dining room. They're a great option for adding a pop of color or texture to a room, and they're versatile enough to be moved around as needed. They can also be easily upholstered to match your decor.
3. The Slipper chair
As the name states, the Slipper chair was designed as a chair to comfortably put on or take off your shoes. They are similar to side chairs, but are usually lower to the ground and have a more casual vibe. They're great for adding seating to smaller spaces, such as a bedroom or dressing room, where a larger chair might not fit as well. These chairs are often upholstered in soft fabrics and can be easily moved around the room as needed.
The Chaise Lounge
A chaise lounge is a long, upholstered seat with a backrest that can be adjusted to different angles. They are designed for reclining or lounging, and are perfect for creating a cozy reading nook or adding extra seating in a living room or bedroom. They can also be used as an accent piece and come in a variety of designs and styles and can also be easily upholstered to match your decor.
An ottoman is a low, upholstered seat that is often used as a footrest or additional seating. They're a great option for adding a casual, comfortable seating option to a living room or bedroom. They can be easily upholstered in a variety of fabrics to suit your style.
When selecting a new chair for your space, it's important to consider the style, comfort, and overall functionality of the chair. Don't be afraid to mix and match different styles to create a cohesive look, and remember that choosing the right chair is not only about the look but also comfort and use. If you have a piece that you would like to have upholstered, feel free to reach out for an estimate. I would be happy to help you bring new life to your favorite chair and give everyone that sees it #ChairEnvy!
