An occasional chair is the perfect stopgap between your beloved armchair and something more upright like a dining chair. Strictly speaking, they’re just meant to be a bit of extra seating for guests, or perhaps a seat for a bedroom or alcove, but they can be whatever you want them to be, and at Dunelm, we’ve got occasional chairs that you’ll be happy to use all the time.
What’s lovely about a beautiful occasional chair is that it becomes part of the decor of the house as soon as you put it in place. It sits there looking elegant, obediently awaiting your much-loved guest, ready to welcome them with open arms.
Style is whatever you want it to be with an occasional chair. You can choose something very glamorous, the kind that stands out no matter what else, or who else, it is sharing its space with. Or you can choose one that’s perfectly understated to sit tidily away in the corner until called upon. We’ve got the complete range at Dunelm, drawing from all the most design-conscious eras, as well as reaching into the future.
Our Esme and Isla chairs, for example, have the unmistakable hallmarks of the Roaring Twenties, their Art Deco proportions and dimensions sitting perfectly in whatever colour you choose. The Oswald is like an old friend, a relaxed, comfortable one with bags of personality. And the wing chair is a drawing-room classic, always ready to accommodate a friend for a lengthy gossip.
With plain and button back, ribbed and cushioned designs to choose from, you’re going to find an occasional chair that matches the theme of the room. There’s also a super range of sizes, from a light wicker style to our magnificent 2 seater cocktail sofas, which are an interesting and versatile take on the idea of an occasional chair.
We even stock some fantastic swivel recliners. They’re probably our most comfy occasional chair, which many of our customers buy as their main chair as it’s such a cosy seat. Available in a range of covers including leather, they rotate, recline and come with padded arms and a handy footstool so you can relax to the max.
So whether you are looking for a few spare chairs to dot around the home, or are after something to become your new favourite TV chair, you’re going to find it at Dunelm. Take a look through our extensive range of occasional chairs and order now for swift delivery.
