Leather and Fabric Occasional Chairs

As we enjoy the great indoors, many of us like the idea of our own sofa space or favourite armchair to cosy up in. Today’s modern home furnishing is all about coordinating and contrasting with furniture pieces adding a splash of colour where needed. The traditional 3 piece suite still holds favour with many, but you can now find eclectic furniture ranges with a mix of bright and quirky sofas and armchairs that can bring a new lease of life to a room. Living room furniture can be made up of wide snuggler chairs, 2-seater small sofas and occasional armchairs or chaises.

Occasional Chairs

Buying an occasional chair not only provides extra seating, but it can also be used as an accent piece in a room. These stand-alone chairs can draw the eye with bold designs or blend nicely with keyed-down versions of existing furniture sets. They can be used in living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms and conservatories. Extra seating has come a long way from cheap folding chairs. You can now buy quality compact armchairs in a wide variety of designs to suit the mood of any room.

Leather Armchairs

The natural warmth of leather and its unique markings that enhance its beauty is a popular choices for many. Leather was once considered a luxury, but nowadays, new techniques have seen the production of more affordable options. Customers buying chairs made from real leather can benefit from the quality and natural finish of the product. Best of all, with the right care and attention, leather furniture should last a lifetime. There are plain styles and traditional choices with studded arms and button-backs. A leather occasional chair covered in a rich shade of brown or black gives a vintage appearance and adds elegance to a room.

Fabric Armchairs

Fabric upholstery offers a bigger range of colour options and choices of fibre mixes and textures. Upholstery swatch services are also available from many stores helping you choose the best colour and material. Fabric armchairs and occasional chairs can be bright and cheery in plain, pattern or floral. Modern styles with a contemporary twist and smart traditional armchairs with quality finishes can be found. There are love seats and snuggler chairs in unique styles of upholstered leather and fabric for wider seats and roomy chairs.
