How to shop for modern occasional chairs

  • Define your style - Take a moment to define your personal style and the overall aesthetic of your space. Are you drawn to minimalist designs, bold colours, or unique shapes? Understanding your preferences will help you narrow down your choices and create a cohesive look.

  • Consider comfort - While style is important, comfort should never be compromised. Test the chairs in person whenever possible, paying attention to factors such as seat depth, cushion firmness, and back support.

  • Materials and durability - Modern occasional chairs come in a variety of materials, including leather, fabric, wood, metal, and plastic. Consider the durability and maintenance requirements of each material, keeping in mind factors such as ease of cleaning, resistance to wear and tear, and suitability for your lifestyle or the intended use of the chair.

  • Size and proportions - Carefully assess the available space where the chair will be placed. Measure the dimensions to ensure that the chair fits well without overwhelming the room or appearing too small. Pay attention to the chair's proportions, considering the height, width, and overall scale in relation to other furniture pieces in the space.

  • Versatility and functionality - Think about how the chair will be used. Will it primarily serve as an accent piece for occasional seating, or will it be used for everyday purposes? Consider chairs with features like swivel bases with reclining, gliding or rocking mechanisms for added comfort.

  • Quality and craftsmanship - Invest in a chair of good quality and craftsmanship. Look for reputable brands or manufacturers known for their attention to detail and use of high-quality materials. 

  • Budget - Determine your budget range early on to help you streamline your options. Modern occasional chairs can vary greatly in price, so having a clear budget in mind will ensure you stay within your means while still finding a chair that meets your expectations.

How to style an occasional chair

Styling a modern occasional chair involves careful consideration of various elements. Start by choosing the location for the chair, whether it's a corner of the room, on its own in a cozy reading nook or part of a larger seating arrangement. Play with colours and patterns to add visual interest, and accessorize with coordinating pillows and throws for comfort and style. 

Pay attention to scale and proportions, and consider adding an end table or ottoman for functionality. Incorporate lighting and personalize the space with accessories to reflect your personal style. Experiment with textures and materials to add depth, and keep the chair functional and accessible.
