A large, comfortable chair with armrests, the Chesterfield is a popular choice for modern and sophisticated living rooms. It is more compact than the Chesterfield sofa, making it the perfect place to relax with a good book or a cup of coffee. Although normally associated with traditional aesthetics, Chesterfield chairs can also enhance a glamorous or maximalist living room style. A lounger is a long chair that allows you to stretch your legs without having to use an ottoman.
Klismos chairs are popular for modern interiors and outdoors, and come in a variety of materials and coverings including metal, wood and leather. The bottom of a rocking chair has curved parts that allow it to move back and forth. When choosing the right living room chair, comfort is key. Folding chairs are still comfortable surfaces to support the head for naps, lounging or reading.
Recliners are specifically designed for impromptu naps and rest sessions. One-and-a-half chairs are less popular than other chairs because of their unique size. Globe-shaped chairs look great in corners of the living room facing out, or placed on either side of a traditional fireplace. Designer chairs or iconic occasional chairs such as the original Barcelona chair by Knoll can add a unique touch or a bit of color to any room.
Poufs come in many sizes and styles, making it easy to add an ultra-padded look that evokes relaxation to your living room. Some chairs are small, while others are oversized or dramatic in size and design that act as a conversation or decorative piece in a room. An occasional chair can be as simple as a small, unupholstered armchair or as modern as a bubble-shaped chair.
