Decorating With Occasional Chairs


We all hear the term “occasional chairs”.  What exactly is an occasional chair? To put it simply, they are chairs that are used occasionally but should make a bold statement in the room where they are used. 

Some call them accent chairs and many use them in pairs.  Really, they can bring a room together or they can work as a contrast of what you already have going on.  It all depends on the look you are going for.

Traditional or Modern Occasional Chairs

Mixing styles of furniture is acceptable these days.  If done well the look can make a positive impact on your room’s décor.  Using a traditional style occasional chair or pair of chairs? Then consider using a straight-line side table, coffee table, metal or even a glass table.

Modern occasional chairs can mix with traditional wood pieces.  Depending on the leather or fabric you have selected for your occasional chairs, mixing wood colors and patterns can make your room more interesting.  If you have selected a lighter leather or fabric color for your new chairs, darker accessories look best.

Even though occasional chairs are only really used on occasion they should still be cozy and comfortable.  You can add texture to a leather occasional chair by using a throw blanket over the arm or back.  It will not only add another dimension it will also add another layer of coziness and warmth.  Bold is beautiful these days so be brave and go outside the box with your accessories.

Combining Occasional Chairs with Textures and Patterns

Occasional chairs can be fun or boring depending on how you pair them.  If you use a fabric with patterns, use solid colors elsewhere to balance your room or the opposite if you choose solid for your occasional chairs.

Solid leather occasional chairs can be complimented by using a textured rug or throw pillows.  A cool floor lamp close by also works well next to an occasional chair.  Always keep it interesting!  Your occasional chairs should be interesting and functional and most of all comfortable.
