Whether you want a comfortable seat for your book nook, or you plan on making a special spot for guests to relax, west elm’s small scale occasional seating selection includes the perfect accessories for any small living space. An occasional chair and a coffee table by a large window creates a cozy area for reading the morning papers or enjoying coffee while the world goes by, but occasional chairs also work in a guest room or wide hallway for providing convenient seating for visitors. Look for something with elegant curves and a sleek, modern style to give the room a spark of glamour, and do not be afraid to make a statement with something bold and beautiful, which contrasts with the surroundings and creates a focal point. When space is limited, homeowners should look for versatile furniture that serves several functions depending on the immediate requirements. For example, an occasional chair is ideal for use in a loft apartment, where homeowners move it between the living area and a small office as the need arises. Occasional chairs with arms provide the most comfort for reading and relaxing, but chairs without arms are less restrictive, making a room feel more spacious and allowing for double duty as a dining chair when it is necessary to make space for one more person at the kitchen table. Regardless of style, a well-chosen occasional chair is the perfect accessory for a range of occasions and situations, and is the ideal way to use limited space efficiently.
