Frequently asked questions about our occasional chairs
What are occasional chairs?
An occasional chair is a type of chair that isn’t intended for everyday use but serves as a decorative piece, adding aesthetic value to your space. They are often referred to as decorative chairs or feature chairs depending on their use.
Are occasional chairs the same as accent or statement chairs?
An occasional chair is used for its specific purpose on an “occasional” basis. For example, it may be a chair in the bedroom used when putting on shoes, or an extra chair in the living room used when there are guests. It is not intended for continuous, daily use.
An accent chair is a type of occasional chair that’s used to add a burst of colour or unique design to a room. A statement chair is also an accent chair that makes a bold statement and stands out from the rest of the room’s furniture. They are typically chosen for their aesthetic purposes.
So accent chairs and statement chairs can be types of occasional chairs, but an occasional chair might not always be an accent or statement chair.
These terms are often used interchangeably.
Are armchairs and accent chairs different?
While armchairs always have arms and are traditionally upholstered similarly to corresponding sofas for comfort, accent chairs may or may not have arms. Accent chairs are considered decorative and serve to inject a splash of colour or personality into a room. Armchairs are primarily chosen for comfort.
How to coordinate an accent chair with a sofa?
Coordinating an accent chair with your sofa can depend on your personal style and the existing decor. You could choose a chair that complements the colour of your sofa or pick a contrasting colour to make a statement.
Is it okay to have only one accent chair?
A single accent chair can be a striking addition to a room. It can serve as a focal point and create a unique style statement, adding personality and flair to your space.
