Choosing The Perfect Chair

Trying to balance the current style of your furniture with no compromise on comfort can be difficult. An Occasional chair or Armchair can have a huge impact on the design of a room; it can make or break the space around it. What works in one space may not work in another, consider the following points when you decide which chair will be perfect for you.


What do you need it for?

Are you after a small chair that just sits perfectly at the end of your bed, or maybe a chair to sit in the hallway? Then a statement piece is what you are after. This is a chair that probably won’t be getting much sitting, so fabric and styles are more important here. As a statement piece, it’s considered a feature item; maybe go with something slightly oversized to make more of an impact.


If you are a fan of contemporary design, the DylanHolly & Harvard Chairs are a perfect choice, with its narrow arms and simple styling. It’s compact and ideal if you have a small space or corner.

With a bit of love and care, your chair should last a lifetime. Choosing the right fabric can have major influence on the longevity of your furniture. If you are after something with a warm cozy feel, wool is a great choice, however a linen mix is great if you after something a bit more informal. Pick loud and bold colours or large funky prints or strips to create a statement look, matching your personality – matching cushions or footstools or even curtains can create a real WOW factor.
