Classic Chair Designs For The Living Room

A classic chair can make or break the aesthetics of the room. Adding a chair that doesn’t complement the room will make it stand out like a sore thumb. Choose wisely, and it can elevate the space to five-star quality. 

Living rooms are the first recipients of a classic chair. Apart from providing extra seating, they add another layer to the decor. Since the chairs here would be used often, they should be stable with sturdy legs, comfortable seating and lovely fabric that holds well against wear and tear. If there are enough seating options in the living room, you could place design and style over comfort. The choice is yours.

Classic Chair Designs For The Bedroom

Classic chairs are not just for the Monday morning quarterbacks. Your bedroom could do with them too. Be it a wingback in a pastel shade, an armchair with an interesting weave or a tufted chair for snuggling up with your favourite book and a cup of tea — each of these modern classic chairs will look great when matched with the room’s colour palette.

Keep in mind the proportions of the room and the rest of the furniture. Pretty is fine, but comfort is the primary requisite in the bedroom. Choosing fabulous over function will hurt in the long run.

Classic Chair Designs For The Dining Room

The more, the merrier. Nevermore accurate than in the dining room. Uplevel your dining space with classic wooden chairs or cushy ones that you can sit on for hours after the meal is over. You could go for the same set of chairs or a combination of designs. You could also use cushions and throws to embellish the chair. Remember to balance the visuals — negative space is as important to not overwhelm a room.
