What Is a Modern Occasional Chair?

While there is no set definition, modern occasional chairs are understood by designers and decorators to be seating designs that are not considered part of a matching set of furniture. These chairs can be used for a wide number of purposes (or occasions&,dash;hence, the name), and their main appeal lies in their ability to add an extra dose of visual intrigue to areas like the living room or bedroom. If your existing pieces—the sofa, loveseat, etc.—are a solid color, a modern occasional chair can introduce a striking pattern that gives your space some texture and energy. The same is true for the reverse, a chair with a single-color upholstery adds visual contrast and breaks up the room without clashing or feeling too busy. At the end of the day, the most important thing to keep in mind is that, even though modern occasional chairs don't have to mirror the rest of your seating, they do need to blend in and fit the theme of the room. So, these designs are best suited in spaces with corresponding modern seating. Want help choosing right look? Just call 800-782-1967, and one of our friendly, professional Lighting & Home Decor Consultants will help you find the perfect piece.
