Add more seating to your living room and make your space cozy and inviting. Our seating collections offer a wide range of options, from mid-century recliners to roomy armchairs. Coordinate your chairs with a new west elm sofa or choose a piece to pair with your existing furniture.
Common Living Room Chair Styles
When it comes to adding seating to your space, you have plenty of choices. The club chair is a popular option, with its deep, roomy seat and lower back. These chairs are ideal for seating that gets heavy use, as they’re comfortable and sturdy. Wingback chairs are similar, but feature sides that flare out at the top. These chairs are statement pieces, so they work well with less imposing furniture such as small sofas. Recliners let you lean back and put your feet up, so they’re wonderful pieces to add to a TV area. Swivel chairs and gliders offer movement, which comes in handy when entertaining. If you want a simple style that you’ll only use occasionally, browse our collection of accent chairs. These modern chair designs feature clean lines and often include wood or metal frames, making them easy to match with statement pieces such as mid-century TV stands and large media consoles.
Our chairs come in a variety of different materials. Upholstered fabric chairs are popular, as they’re durable and easy to maintain. Fabric options also come in various colours and textures, offering a great way to get creative with design. Leather chairs offer classic looks that pair well with mid-century decor schemes. A bit of wear adds character, so they still look great after decades of use. Leather chairs are good options for industrial and distressed living room designs. Pair your leather chair with distressed rugs or metal side tables. Some chairs feature wood or metal frames or legs. These make it easy to clean under the chairs and offer a lighter, more open look.
Decorating with Your Living Room Chairs
Because they’re smaller, living room chairs are fairly flexible. You can arrange them as you like to create a comfortable, sociable seating area. If you like entertaining, arranging them around a coffee table is a good option. You can also place one on either side of a sofa to expand your seating options. If your space is on the smaller side, you can stick to a single armchair and use bar stools for extra seating when guests come over. Once your chairs are in place, add some flair with a decorative cushion or two. You can also drape a throw blanket over the back or arm to add a pop of colour to your space.
