Small Scale Occasional Seating

At west elm, we know that there is much for you to consider when designing a smaller home or apartment. That’s why we offer a wide range of furniture designed specifically for small spaces or to help you create cozy nooks throughout your home. Our Small Scale Occasional Seating is ideal for creating small living room spaces that encourage intimate conversation. If you have a little extra room, pair these chairs with small sofas and sectionals to create extra seating for all of your guests. Choose from sturdy arm chairs or slipper chairs for a refined look or go for laid-back vibes with stools and beanbags that can easily be hidden away to open up floor space.


Our small scale occasional seating chairs can also be used with our small kitchen tables to create a cozy nook that is perfect for enjoying a delightful breakfast or savory dessert. Choose from round rectangular or square tables to fit your room and design preferences. Round tables are a terrific choice for rooms where you want your table in the center since there aren’t any sharp corners to bump into when moving around. Pub tables are another suitable choice as they take up little room and open up floor space below for decorative baskets and bins that help you stay organized.


Use our Small Scale Occasional Seating in your home office to create a space where you can meet with clients or simply add one to your small desk for comfortable working conditions. Our occasional seating features push comfort and back support so you can spend long hours working away without feeling tired. If your work is casual, add a pouf in fun designs to liven up the space and welcome clients. Our poufs feature a wide range of patterns including stripes and paisley as well as fabrics from Mongolian lamb fur and cowhide to shag and velvet.


Set your occasional seating pieces around small coffee and console tables for the ideal conversation nook that provides surface space for everything from drinks to books and accessories. Add a tray to your coffee table to collect loose items while adding style and personality. Match chairs and tables for a cohesive look or mix things up with contrasting pieces that add a bold look to even the smallest rooms. Make sure to mix and match decor items in patterns and muted tones to keep the small room from feeling overwhelming. Choose one occasional chair and table or add stools and extra seating if you like to entertain and have guests in your home.
