Chair Construction

When you're shopping for occasional chairs, first consider what construction you prefer. First, you can select an upholstered chair featuring a sturdy wooden frame. These chairs use materials like kiln-dried ash wood, pine wood and other solid woods. These wood frames combine with engineered wood accents to create a chair that's supremely sturdy. These accent chairs also feature wooden legs available in various finishes, including walnut, dark mineral and natural oak.

Metal chairs are also available. These sturdy designs showcase versatile finishes, including charcoal and antique brass. These finishes are powder coated for durability. Paired with several upholstery options, including leather, these metal occasional chairs coordinate with any home.

All of the chairs in this west elm collection are also designed to maximize your comfort. You'll find features like webbed back support and high-gauge sinuous springs that further support the seat cushion. A polyurethane foam core adds strength and comfort to the seat cushion, making the chair oh-so cozy every time you sit down.

Upholstery Options

Upholstery is the finishing touch to your new occasional chair. Whether you opt for a versatile neutral look or a colorful one, you can design the right chair for your home by exploring this collection. For a luxurious look, choose an aniline leather chair, which boasts a natural look and soft, waxy finish that scuffs over time to add vintage charm to the piece. Or, opt for a polyester or polyester and acrylic twill fabric available in a range of colors. Choose from neutral hues like feather gray, stone, light taupe and stone white. Or, add a pop of color to your room with vibrant upholstery like teal, desert sunset, light pink and shelter blue. You can even find dual-toned chairs, featuring backs and seats in different hues. When selecting a chair color, consider other colors in your room found in decorative accents like window treatments and patterned rugs.

Improve room seating and design at the same time with occasional chairs from west elm. You'll enjoy kicking up your feet and relaxing after a long day in these inviting chairs that are perfect for any home.
