Living Room Chairs
For some, the sofa is the go-to spot when it comes to relaxing in the living room, but for others, it’s all about the chair. Think of lounging in your favorite chair when taking in the daily news, watching your favorite show or having a meaningful chat with your a member of your family or a friend. Consider a chair that enlivens your living room but also provides you comfort, offering you years of enjoyment and durability. From modern to contemporary and every style in between, west elm offers you a bevy of choices in comfortable and classic style.
One of the most popular types of living room chairs to invest in is a recliner. This type of chair offers you comfort and support when it comes to reading a book, enjoying television or perusing a newspaper, but also offers to the ability to kick back and even maybe snooze a little. Consider one with a midcentury feel, then opt for different materials that work best for your comfort level. There are a myriad of materials to choose from, such as tweed, faux suede, microfiber and velvet. Choose one that is comfortable and soft, and opt for a color that matches your existing living room palette – or start a whole new trend in your living space. Neutrals and beiges are always safe colors; however, you can create a focal point with a pop of periwinkle blue or a conversation piece with a bright red. If you have children or young pets at home, perhaps consider a darker color to stand up to years of hard use.
A swivel chair also adds a beautiful touch to a living area, whether it is in a corner by a large window or sits next to the sofa or loveseat. Opt for a leather swivel armchair in a variety of colors to bring you comfort and relaxation all year long. Swivel chairs also work well in your home office or hobby space, providing a variety of uses. For more modern styles, consider midcentury wood upholstered chairs. Although at first glance they may look to be a good match for your dining area, these comfortable, modern-styled chairs are meant for lounging in your living room or family room. Again, you are offered a choice of a bevy of different fabrics, essentially allowing you to build your own chair as you see fit. Choose from twill, tweed, velvet and more, while selecting a color that works well with the room. For an artistic flair, opt for a patterned fabric on these chairs. For a truly modern look, consider a leather sling chair. Reminiscent of 1960s and 1970s styles, this chair is a definite conversation piece. Its bright color renders it a perfect choice for a window or next to a lounger. The sling chair is a quick ship chair, part of a group of chairs that you are able to receive nearly immediately after ordering with no extended wait.
Those that prefer simple, classic styles may prefer a simple armchair as their favorite spot in the living room. Choose from different styles, from modern to contemporary, to suit the existing feel of the room. A wing glider or wing chair is a perfect idea for your sitting room. Match these lovely chairs with distinctive rugs to create a showplace of a room. Tulip-shaped chairs also work well as end chairs, in the corner or by the window. A simple, swivel armchair in a neutral color is a safe, solid choice that works well in any living or family room, while a soft, boxy swivel chair is perfect for playing games or watching sports on television. For a recliner feel without the recliner, always remember to match your armchair with a comfortable ottoman so you are able to put your feet up.
