Lounge chairs, armchairs, and occasional seating for your home

Whether functional or purely decorative, occasional chairs provide the opportunity to add design interest to any space and give it that extra edge. Popular as living room furniture, they can also be placed in the dining room as a contrast to dining chairs, the bedroom, the office and anywhere there is an empty spot that needs a stylish boost. Match them to your home decor or contrast them using colour and pattern for a creative twist.


Tips for choosing the right chair for your space

Occasional seating is a fantastic way to flex your design muscles. Check out these top tips:


  1. Consider it’s purpose. Will it be for extra seating or will it be purely decorative? Decorative chairs can add interest to bare corners while seating chairs can be in prominent location with cushions and throws for decoration.
  2. Try out different locations before picking the right one. A chair in the wrong position can throw off the entire balance of a room.
  3. Choose the perfect contrasting colour for your design theme by looking at a colour wheel. Pick the colour that is the primary tone of the room and choose a chair in the colour that’s directly opposite to it for a contrast that complements without clashing.
  4. You can also coordinate your colours. Choose a key tone in the room and select a chair that matches it to highlight the hue even more.
  5. Think about pattern and texture. Patterned chairs add loads of visual interest and look great against a plain backdrop. Textured chairs like leather and boucle are more subtle and add cosiness and warmth to a space.

Different kinds of armchairs

Occasional seating comes in all shapes, styles and sizes. The most popular types you’ll find in Australia include:


  • Swivel chair
  • Rocking chair
  • Tub chair
  • Leather armchair
  • Fabric chair
  • Wingback armchair
  • High back armchair

Adding an accent chair to my bedroom

Accent chairs aren’t restricted to just the living areas. Pop one into your bedroom for visual interest and match it to the quilt and pillows. Try different positions; in an empty corner, in front of a dresser and mirror, next to a bookshelf, beside the bed. Occasional chairs in the bedroom can be for sitting, reading, decoration or even laying new clothes out for the day.


Styling your space with an accent chair

Occasional chairs are meant to stand out and add that extra point of difference in a space. They contrast against the surrounding furniture by being colourful, patterned or uniquely textured and provide additional seating when needed.


When styling your space with these chairs, consider the upholstery and make sure it adds to the current design theme rather than detracts from it. Look at the existing furniture, from footstools and coffee tables to the sideboards, side tables and lounge suites with sofa beds. Do you want to coordinate or contrast with these pieces? Matching colours create harmony while contrasting colours create striking visual interest.


Modern armchairs to uplift your home

Modern furniture is always in and adds instant style to any sleek interior. We have leather, leather look and fabric chairs in classic black and white as well as neutrals that are easy to match with your benches, corner lounges, 2 seater sofas and 3 seater sofas. Discover minimalist tub chairs, spacious armchairs, chairs that swivel, sculptured chairs and recliners that are equipped with all of the luxurious features you’d expect for modern living.


Add patterned or textured accent chairs to your living area to tie in with your decor theme

Our patterned and textured chairs come in a wide variety of colours and designs to match your existing interior style. Floral chairs look beautiful in a bohemian theme, adding a vibrant pop next to leather lounges and textured ottomans. Rattan chairs provide a refined touch to a Hamptons theme and cosy boucle armchairs are right at home in a modern setting.


Luxe leather chairs work well in themes that focus on natural textures, such as Scandinavian and boho, while pretty teal armchairs contrast against the white furniture in a French Provincial room.


Relax in one of our comfy armchairs

Comfort is key with our armchairs. Sink into buttery soft leather look tub chairs with a curved back and thick padded seat or settle into a fabric armchair with wide armrests and extra wide seat for maximum space. Kick back in a chaise chair with full foam seating or make working from home a breeze with a comfy swivel chair with 2 scatter cushions.


Choose from the large range of fabrics and colours

Occasional chairs stand out from their surroundings through their fabric, design and colour. We’ve got chairs that elevate every room and create contrast while tying everything together.


Get a luxe look with our genuine leather and faux leather chairs in rich tones. Sleek and ultra-comfortable, they look stunning sitting next to a lounge suite or on their own in a corner with a floor lamp for reading at night. Splash some colour into a room with fabric chairs, from floral and tufted velvet chairs to sculpted fabric chairs in bold red, yellow or blue. Pop them here and there around the home to add visual interest and texture.

What is the difference between an accent chair and a regular chair?

Accent chairs do more than just provide an extra seat for friends and family. They’re designed to create a visual point of difference in the living room by contrasting with your lounges and sofas. These chairs are typically eye-catching and can stand out in colour, shape or texture. They give you the opportunity to play with patterns and bold hues while maintaining a more neutral colour scheme with the rest of the furniture.


How do I position an accent chair in my living room?

You’ve got plenty of options. A popular choice is to position the chair perpendicular to the lounge which creates a nice, cosy space for sitting and conversation. Other options include:


  • Next to the coffee table
  • Across from the lounge or sofa
  • In an empty corner
  • Next to a fireplace
  • Teamed with a matching ottoman
