Decor : 6 types of chairs for your home
Chairs for your home come in many different varieties, with a chair to suit every type of space and need. You may be wondering what some of the designations mean. Next we are going to explain some types of chairs most used in homes, choose the one that most interests you for your home!
Chair with ears
Although the wing chair is a very traditional type of chair, many modern designers have reinterpreted it and given it a more contemporary flavor. Chairs with ears are distinguished by the side panels or “wings” on the back, which were originally intended to protect against drafts in a room or excessive heat from fireplaces. Today, the wings provide a comfortable surface to rest your head for napping. A wing chair is perfect for lounging or reading.
An occasional chair is just that, a chair that is used occasionally. It is usually an additional chair that is used when you have guests. Occasional chairs often end up being accent pieces in a room, selected for their decorative value more than anything else.
Typically dining chairs are side chairs. A side chair is a small chair with a frame that is not upholstered. It has a solid frame and may or may not have arms. The seat and backrest may or may not be upholstered. In addition to use in the dining room, side chairs can add additional seating in a living room or other spaces. They are not bulky.
A sliding chair is an upholstered armless chair with short legs that allow you to sit closer to the ground. It’s its low height that sets it apart, and it also makes it a comfortable option for many.
While sliding chairs were originally used in women’s bedrooms to sit or aid dressing, they can be found in any room in today’s modern home.
A reclining chair is popular for reading and watching TV. You can find traditional and elegant versions in leather or fabric. A recliner or chair allows you to put your feet up and relax, then put the footrest away when you’re done.
Chair and a half
A chair and a half is a very useful piece of furniture, as it is slightly larger than a chair and smaller than a loveseat. The width of a chair and a half makes it an ideal piece of furniture to rest. It may have a tight back and a small seat, or have loose back and seat cushions. It could also have a tight back with a loose seat.
This type of chair is versatile and can work in various settings such as a small living room or bedroom.
All these chairs can fit very well in the decoration of your home, in any corner where you want to add a chair for your rest or that of your guests.
