All Living Room Chairs

Not all living room chairs are created equally, and at west elm, we offer modern and contemporary styles that not only enliven a space and add flair, but are subtle and elegant enough to complement existing decor and furniture. Whether you are in search of a recliner to sink into after a long day, or want a chair that’s an attention-grabbing conversation piece, there is a myriad of choices available to suit your needs.


Bring back the retro styles of the 1950s and 1960s with a selection of egg-shaped and throwback chairs that are sure to wake up your space. While they may look a little space-age, these chairs are durable and comfortable, with quality construction that’s meant to last for years of comfortable use. Great as conversation pieces in the living room, or simply for extra seating, these chairs don’t disappoint. For comfort and versatility, perhaps opt for an armchair to add extra seating to your living room. Choose from a variety of different colors, fabrics and styles to brighten up your space. Colors such as red, blue and even yellow help make a chair not only a focal point in the room, but an important piece of your decor. You may also choose neutrals and grays for more of a subtle effect.


Swivel chairs are another great addition to your living room, although many of these also work well in your home office. Choose from luxurious materials, such as leather, velvet or tweed, in contemporary and modern colors and styles that are sure to please. Swivel chairs also look great in your mudroom or enclosed porch, and they add extra seating to your entryway or foyer.


For a high level of comfort, opt for a recliner or glider in your living room. Elegant, mid-century styles assure you that the chair will fit in seamlessly with your existing ensemble, while leather and high-quality wood construction promises durability and comfort for years to come. In addition to your living room, recliners work well for reading in your master bedroom.


Wing and upholstered chairs are also a pleasant addition to your living room or bedroom. Add one of these chairs in the corner of the room to create a reading nook, or pair them with an end or side table to complete your living room ensemble. These chairs work well when matched with a mid-century, modern coffee table, adding extra seating to your living space for entertaining friends and family.
