Occasional chairs are functional and stylish. As the name suggests, these chairs work for just about any occasion. They often have beautiful designs so that they add to the decor of the room when not in use, but are lightweight and durable enough to move around when you need extra seating. Place slip covers over chairs to have your extra seating match your larger upholstery. Or, bring a chair into the living room for an extra spot around the glass-top coffee table.
Recliners and wingback chairs are among the largest chairs to work with. Their size and design have a presence in the room and are sure to draw attention. The larger size of these chairs is the ideal counterpart to a sofa or sectional, helping to balance out the room.
