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.
Occasional seating is a fantastic way to flex your design muscles. Check out these top tips:
Occasional seating comes in all shapes, styles and sizes. The most popular types you’ll find in Australia include:
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.
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.

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.
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:
