Modern living room with plush armchairs and ottoman

One of the places you can be designing for is a home. The chairs chosen to be placed in a home versus an office will have some differences, but some will even overlap! Plus, each room in the house could have different types and decor needs that will work best in each specific setting.

Whether the need for seating is in the kitchen, bedroom, or living room, there are many options to choose from. Here are some of the most popular chairs for interior design.

Types of Living Room Chairs

Contemporary wingback chairs and pleated couch

The living room is one of the most used rooms in the home, it is often where families gather for entertainment purposes or spending time with one another.

It is also a great location to entertain guests which can potentially require additional seating. Below are some ideas of chairs that would work best in the living room.


Traditional armchair with buttonsNailhead armchair

Armchairs are one of the most common pieces used within any space. They are extremely versatile pieces that take many forms and are especially coveted due to the armrests.

The armrest makes the chair great for lounging and living. To be considered an armchair the only real quality it needs to possess is that it has arms, which means a good portion of chairs will fall under this category.

Armless Chairs

Armless chairs are the same as armchairs except for the fact that they lack armrests. This will make them less expensive, lighter, and more versatile. Without arms, this chair can fit under pretty much any table or counter and it is easy to sit any way you like on it.

Often, in dining rooms with oval tables, the end chairs will have arms while the ones on the side will be armless to allow for more people to fit around the table. Armless seats are frequently referred to as slipper chairs which we cover in more detail below.


Manual recliner chair with black faux leather

Recliner with faux leather

A recliner is chair that allows for adjustable seating levels. This is done by having a built in footrest. These footrests are usually accessible by a lever, button, or by leaning back in the chair.

Recliners are made of fabric or leather and can range in style from traditional to modern. This is typically placed in a living room or entertainment room for easy watching television or activities such as reading books, magazines, or newspapers.


White loveseat

A loveseat is a piece bigger than a chair and a half and smaller than a true sofa. This allows two individuals to sit in the chair but maybe be a little close together if they are strangers.

The idea behind the names suggests that it was meant to get people to sit closer together. In the past, this style was created in the shape of an S where one person sat on either side so that the two were able to see and speak with one another.

Accent Chairs

Gray accent chairs and cream loveseat

Accent chairs are sort of a category within a category for chairs. They will be used as accent pieces that will typically be different than the rest of the chairs in the room, being the accent.

Another way to make a chair an accent will be to create some difference in the materials. Some popular accent chairs will be as follows:

Slipper Chair

Mid century modern slipper chair setMid century modern slipper style

The slipper chair was designed to, as the name suggests, create ease when putting on slippers and other footwear. Slipper chairs come without arms, since the user will not be sitting long and will usually be bending to put on previously mentioned footwear. This allows them to move freely as well as sit at any angle.

To help the functionality of the slipper chair the seat is closer to the ground, allowing the user easier access to their feet. This item can also be used around a coffee table for typical seating, but is recommended for petite and shorter people due to the lowness to the ground, making it somewhat uncomfortable for taller individuals.

Side Chair

Vintage style side chairVintage design

A side chair has a small solid frame that is not upholstered. It can have arms and/or an upholstered seat, but neither of those qualities are required.

These chairs are typically used in dining rooms or lounges and can be added to living rooms as extra seating. They are not very bulky for ease in mobility and storage, making them perfect to bring out when entertaining.

Wingback Chair

The wingback chair is a classic design that has withstood the tests of time to the ultimate degree. The chairs were originally designed to be placed in front of a fireplace where the “wings” (sides) were large enough to keep the warmth to the person sitting, and to block the draft from them. This was important when there was no heating in homes and the fireplace was the full source of warmth.

When wingback chairs were first introduced there were two styles, scroll and flat, now expanding to each style and era having their own type. The scroll-type chairs had more ornamentation to them and were rounder shapes. Flat-wingback models were less detailed and had straighter lines.

Occasional Chair

The occasional chair is one that will be used, as the name suggests, occasionally. This is often classified as an accent piece or a guest chair. These tend to be an extra seat in the home and can be used for many different purposes.

An occasional chair can be any number of types; for example, a wingback style could be considered an occasional chair. Occasional chairs can either be used all the time or can even be something that is put away easily when guests are not there.

Club Chair

Black leather club chairBlack leather club chair – See at Amazon

Clubs chairs are known for having backs that are low enough to flow into the armrests. These were typically used in gentleman’s clubs (hence the name); having the lower back allowed the seating not to separate the room and made conversation easier.

Nowadays, variations of the club chair are amazing accent pieces for many settings. They are usually made with leather to show class and power but some will be made with various fabrics.

Barrel Chair

Brown barrel chair Brown barrel style

The key features of the barrel chair are the rounded back, its size, and the height of the back flowing into the arms. The chair is shaped almost like it is a barrel with a piece cut out, which is where it gets its name.

This creates a flow of the seatback into the arms, all being one height and connected, which creates comfort when the conversation is flowing all around. This type of armchair is typically pretty large for added comfort.

Eames Chair

Another classic chair, designed by the famous Charles Eames, has been an icon and staple in the furniture industry. The Eames chair includes curves and leather cushions that use comfort and style to make it a high demand product.

The structure has been brought up to date with a plywood structure. These can mix and match fabrics to coordinate with the space.

English Rolled Arm

The English rolled arm chair has extremely low arms as well as a very deep seat. This gives the effect that you are sinking into the seat. To pair with this, the seat cushion is extremely soft and plush, which creates an extremely comfortable seat.

As for the chair’s name, though the arms are low, that is not the only exciting part of them. The arms of the English Rolled armchair have a slight roll out to them, which expands the space of the armrests for added comfort.

Chesterfield Chair

The Chesterfield chair is known for the buttoning and tufting that is part of their design. Tufting is created by passing threads through areas of fabric to create depressions adding a decorative look.

Often, buttons are placed in the middle to bring the look together and keep it looking clean. Typically, Chesterfield chairs will be made of leather, while some will still get upholstered. These designs look comparable to club and wing chairs, so they will typically be used in the same scenarios.

Lawson Chair

Lawson chair

The Lawson chair is most commonly known for its firm cushioning. A Lawson design can have square or rounded arms that are lower than the back, in direct contrast to the club chair.

These chairs can be used in a number of settings, especially living areas and studies. Though often subtle, it can be spiced up with eccentric colors and patterns.

Bergère Chair

Bergere chair with french rococo design

The Bergere is a chair with a wooden frame that is exposed around the upholstered back of the seat. It is considered to be part of the French Rococo style and drips with elegance. Due to the exposed frame and the ornamentation that is usually implemented it tends to seem like a regal decor piece.

To avoid making the piece too fancy the seat has a looser cushion, but it still brings sophistication to a room it is placed in. Based on the level of sophistication will decide where the item will most likely be placed.

Chair and a Half

Gray chair and a halfGray fabric chair-and-a-half

A chair in a half is basically a long way to say it is oversized. These designs are between the size of a regular chair and a loveseat. This is used for relaxation due to the ability to spread out and get comfortable.

These are offered in almost every style, color, and texture. This is a good option because it makes anyone comfortable in the seating, even people who could possibly need bariatric seating.

Chaise Lounge

The chaise lounge is one of the most misunderstood seating options. The name comes from the French word for “long chair” which perfectly describes what it is.

A chair that a person can put their feet onto will be classified as a chaise lounge. These models can have arms or can be one long seat. Though it is meant for lounging, the lounge part of the word does not always mean that the design is long.

chaise lounges are often available with either left-arm or right-arm support rests. The model shown above also comes with under seat storage for keeping extra blankets and pillows within easy reach.

Stressless Chair

Stressless chair with ottoman and massage functionStressless seat with ottoman and massage function

A stressless chair resembles a recliner with a padded seat and back with a headrest and ottoman. A lever conveniently placed under the armrest brings it upright or to the reclining position.

This type of chair is meant to provide the utmost comfort possible to drain the stress from the body. They focus on support, comfort, and freedom to move as needed.

The chair balances itself based on your movements to maintain optimum levels of comfort. This allows the user to move freely without worrying about tipping or moving.

The stressless massage chair is commonly used in bedrooms due to the fact that once you get into the seat, you will not want to get up and go too far to get to your bed.

Barcelona Chair

Black barcelona chair and ottoman

Finally, a chair that’s name doesn’t make sense because it was designed in Germany! The chair’s design was a collaboration between Mies Van Der Rohe and his partner Lilly Reich and is one of the icons of modern furniture.

This design has a stainless steel frame topped by a cushion and bovine leather seat and back. The Barcelona chair has been popular since the 1950s and is manufactured by Knoll. It can also be used in the living room or as an accent piece in a bedroom.

Types of Bedroom Chairs

Many of the same types of chairs for the living room are commonly used in the bedroom. The most common designs for the bedroom are armchairs or accent chairs as decor pieces.

Bedroom chairs are typically more used as accents or for lounging; other times, they will be used for reading. Some of the most popular styles outside of arm and accent chairs are as follows:


Glam bedroom with gold satin bedding and tufted ottoman

An ottoman is typically used as a footstool to be paired with a lounge chair. When guests are over and seating is limited though, ottomans are sturdy enough to be used as seating as well. These versatile pieces can also be used for storage or as a coffee table!

Some ottomans can come upholstered, while some are wood. Based on the design choices, we will decide which is best. In the bedroom, this can commonly be used at the end of the bed or as end tables, all while giving a place to store things and also a small seat when putting on clothing.

Hanging Chair

Any chair that is suspended from the ceiling is considered a hanging chair. A good example is the typical hanging egg or hammock chairs.

These will be typically made from wicker or some woven lightweight materials to offset the gravity of it being a seat that is hanging from the ceiling.

These types of swinging chairs will need an extremely sturdy ceiling to hang from, which is why they are typically installed outdoors.

Some outdoor options could be swings or hammock styles. Some models have a base on the ground with an arm overhead to support the users weight.


Cool girl bedroom with hanging hammock and dark color theme

Hammock chairs, while invited into the bedroom for their lounge feel, are also sometimes used outside which is why they are typically made from extra water proofing materials as well as include special cushions. These seats can be inexpensive when compared to other styles.

As with the hanging chairs previously discussed, these models will need a sturdy support system because of the weight of the person, and the pressure on the place where it is strung up.

Makeup Chair

Professionals as well as amateurs can use makeup chairs which are often height adjustable. Knowing whether you are doing your own makeup or applying makeup for someone else will help you decide what size to get.

Makeup chairs are similar in appearance to directors designs. They often come with storage pouches, water bottle holders, or mesh bags for holding small items. These models are typically made of a material that is easily cleanable due to the possibility of spilling makeup products.

Vanity Chair

A vanity chair is, as the name suggests, a type that will be paired with a vanity. A vanity table will be used to apply makeup and do one’s hair. This design will be similar to the makeup chair previously mentioned and will also often be made of an easily cleanable material.

The chair will be either a stool or small seat to bring one’s face and head to the correct height of the mirror and allow one to do their desired primping.

Egg Chair

Egg chair with purple fabric

The egg chair was one of the most popular styles designed in the 1950’s and 60’s. This model curves, and the upholstery still stays true, and it remains popular to this day.

Arne Jacobson designed this chair with inspiration drawn from the womb for a hotel, and from there it blew up and is still a popular staple in homes. This seat can also be made into a hanging chair, which came as a later reinvention of the design.

Types of Dining Chairs

Dining room with upholstered chairs, solid french doors white wainscoting wood flooring and fireplace

One of the main features of a dining room will be the chairs because when you eat, you will almost always want to sit! The dining table will typically allow for four to eight chairs and sometimes more depending on the size.

Typically all of these chairs will be the same, but in recent times, mixing and matching types and styles has become a fad to add interest to the dining space.

While armchairs and side chairs are commonly used some other popular types there are a ton of other options for dining seating as well some of those options are as follows:


Parsons chair in dark brownParsons style

A parsons chair contains clean lines and is extremely simple. This allows it to be used in various styles and settings. It is commonly an upholstered seat which can be anything from lines to leather.

If the chair becomes too plain, there is always the option to add tufting, patterns, or buttons. These options will raise the price of the product but will make it unique to the space and home.

Wishbone Chair

Wishbone chairWishbone style – See at Amazon

The wishbone chair’s most distinguishing feature is the support on the middle back that splits like a wishbone, hence the name. Wishbone designs typically have a curved back to accommodate the split and add support.

Most often these chairs will have a contemporary design look with neutral colors and will be small enough to be used as dining chairs. These seats will often be a focal point and create a lot of attention in the dining room.

Ghost Chair

Ghost chair made of acrylicGhost style

The ghost chair was a quick staple. In only 10 years there were more than 1.5 million of the products sold. This is due to its sleek, innovative design, making a modern version of the plastic chair.

This chair is stackable and, with its clear color lets the focal point of the room be something other than itself. The ghost chairs’ see-through color will make a room feel larger and more open.

These designs can take many different shapes within the style. They are frequently made of acrylic to provide their see-through appearance.

Side Chair

Concrete room with wood table

A side chair has a small, solid frame that is often not upholstered. It can have arms and/or an upholstered seat, but neither of those qualities is required.

These designs are typically used in dining rooms and can be added to living rooms as extra seating. Due to this, they are not very bulky for ease of mobility and storage.

These types are often seen in a transitional design attached to a kitchen. They can also be used for additional seating on the fly while entertaining guests.

Swivel Chairs

The swivel chair was invented to do just that, swivel. From there, the design has expanded to have comfortable seats, armrests and various features and colors. These models are typically used as desk chairs but also can be used outside.

Bar Stools

Bar stools come in many shapes and sizes, just like other chairs. These are commonly used under islands with long countertops or high top tables.

The key to getting a barstool that works for your home is measuring the counter or table first to know exactly what size you will need. Some will have adjustable heights but it is always better to be safe than sorry.

Some barstools will have different features, like rotation, back, footrests, etc. Often barstools with backs are used when people are planning to sit in the stool for more extended periods of time.

In settings where the owner wishes the barstools to be a quick come-and-go spot they will often not provide a back to encourage the stool user to become uncomfortable and move to the next location.

Also, barstools with no backs are quite a bit less expensive than ones with backs, which can contribute to the design choice.

Upholstered VS. Non-Upholstered Seats

Luxury dining table and chairs

While there are many styles for upholstery to choose from, sometimes the functionality is not correct for a specific situation. When deciding to upholster or not think about the setting and the users of the chairs in question.

Will spills be likely? Will anything stain or tear the fabric? Will the fabric become wrinkled if sat on for too long at once?

For example, sometimes adding upholstery to a seat can be a dangerous move, not just for kids but adults too; eating gets messy, and spills happen.

Often slipcovers are available if the answers to those questions turn negative and upholstery is still hoped for. Another solution, too, could be to get a heavily patterned upholstery to take the pressure of spilling since the pattern will hide stains a bit better than, say a plain white fabric. Even choosing something with better cleanability could be an option for a situation!

Leaving an item un-upholstered can add a great look to a space too. Whether the chair is wood or metal, the natural elements are beautiful in their own and do not always need to be covered.

Leaving a chair unupholstered not only takes the staining risk down massive amounts, but it also will usually lower the price and delete a bunch of decisions that would need to be made about fabrics and cushioning.

Dining Chair Styles

Dining space with traditional chairs and wood french doors


The traditional, old school dining chairs include heavy ornamentation. This style will have elaborate rails in the back, often going vertical with a design in the middle. The legs are often curved and carvings will be found all over the wood.

Traditional style chairs include those from the Queen Anne, regency and Chippendale eras, as well as some other traditional styles throughout time. Traditional designs can have upholstered seats as well as wooden.


Room with modern chairs

The modern chairs will directly contrast the previously mentioned traditional style in the sense that they will be extremely organic and not contain much unneeded ornamentation.

These seats are often made out of molded plastic or metal. These tend to be plain in color and do not contain any patterns or upholstery.


Contemporary dining chairContemporary style

Currently, contemporary chairs are very similar to modern designs. This means that the chairs in the contemporary style will often be made of bent wood, metals, and plastic.

These pieces will most often be left as natural and organic as possible. These will also lack ornamentation and patterns.


Ladderback chair

The ladderback style chairs will have wooden backs with rails on the back that will determine the height of the back.

This is how they are commonly referred to depending on the number of rails, such as “four-back” chairs. This type became popular due to its simplicity and versatility. The rest of the design is typically straight lines and can contain a cushioned and upholstered seat or remain wooden.


Mission chair

The mission is commonly lumped in with the shaker style chairs. This type tends to be extremely clean cut with no extras or additions. Vertical and horizontal lines are a big staple for the style.

Some, but only some, shaker styles will have a curved back, but other than that everything is straight and to the point. These can also have a natural wooden seat or an cushioned and upholstered seat.


Windsor chairWindsor chairs – See at Amazon

The Windsor style chair is often considered a classic style. The features of this design are the spindle back and legs. The back of the seat will have many vertical pieces that will be either bowed or hooped.

This often gives a country, rustic feeling. Being entirely made of wood, this is typically used as a casual seat. Be careful using this style with small children because the vertical back pieces are begging to catch a small arm or leg!

Types of Office Chairs

A comfortable office chair is important for maintaining correct posture and avoid back pain. Long hours at the computer can put long-term strain on the spine. Below are popular office chair designs to help you choose the right one.

Desk Chair

Desk chairs are essential because some office workers spend 40 hours a week or more sitting in them! They can have plenty of features that will make it easier to adapt to users. Often, users don’t realize that they have different adjustment settings.

Usually, you can change the height of the seat and arms and how far back you can make the hair lean back. Getting the right fit or switching to an ergonomic chair will make a huge difference.

Ergonomic Office Chair

Ergonomic office chairErgonomic office seat

Ergonomics is the design related to the working environment and the comfort and productivity in it. Some alternatives that have better ergonomics in place of traditional office chairs can be the stability ball, sit to stand models or even stools.

Stability balls not only force you to sit up straight, but they also activate your muscles while you are working to keep you more alert and comfortable.

Sit-to-stand chairs and stools are another great alternative because they offer the ability to change your position and also force you to sit up straighter.


Daybed chair

A daybed chair looks like a lounge with a long mattress that serves as both a place to lay down and relax, or sit upright. It may or may not have backrest and armrests, depending on the design.

This style is frequently used in a home office setting as it provides a relaxing place to read and stretch out compared to the standard office seat. Its versatility is useful whether you’re crashing in the office after a long workday.

Reading Chair

Modern reading room in house

While reading chairs can be anything from a seat with an ottoman to a recliner, the most important factor is comfort. When snuggling up with a good book, you will want your feet up, and if it’s a good book, you could be there for hours, so you will definitely want some space to adjust your positions.

Some reading seats that can be placed into studies will be large wingback styles made of leather to show power and authority. Some, though, could be placed in bedrooms and use more of a stressless design to relax the user after a long day.

Gaming Chair

Gaming chairs have features that you will use when playing entertainment games. These chairs can include Bluetooth speakers and often sit on the floor to position you properly in front of the console. Some models also include these gaming features!

The floor version is typically a crescent shape that sits directly on the floor. This shape allows for rocking motions and mobility to move forward when intense parts of games are going on or lean back for the casual parts. These seats can also be used for viewing television or movies to have a good close sound system.

Types of Kids & Baby Chairs

Nursery with baby lounge chair

A comfortable chair for a newborn baby’s room is important for nursing mothers and rocking a baby to sleep. As a child grows, a seat in their bedroom is useful for reading books to them at night. When they are older they will have a comfortable place to sit while playing with toys or reading themselves.

With a table or desk, a child can do arts and crafts, or homework from their room. Here is an assortment of kids chair ideas to help you find the one that suits your needs.

Glider Chair

Nursery with reclining glider chairNursery glider

A glider chair is commonly used in place of a rocking chair to give a more back-and-forth motion versus the rocking. This keeps the baby moving while still being able to feed them. Often, gliders will include ottomans that also glide with the seat.

Rocking Chairs

Wood rocking chair

Soothing to anyone who enjoys a rocking sensation, rocking chairs are an American staple. Though it is a very American thing, the rocking chair was actually designed in Europe. Rocking chairs, often called rockers, are almost always wooden, sometimes having arms and is mounted on curved rockers.

Nowadays, there are many looks that a rocker can have: metal, upholstered seat & arms, etc. There is even a type that avoids pinching and sits on a stable base while the suspended part of the chair rocks.

Bean Bag Chair

Suede bean bag chair

The bean bag chairs are basically, as the name suggests, a bag of beans! These can be made in any sizes and the shapes change when you sit in the.

Bean bags will get more squished over time, which may require replacing the beans inside (the bag part usually will have a zipper to take out or put in beans).

This is an extremely comfortable seating option due to it conforming to the body of the user. Unfortunately, it can be harder for older people to get in and out of the seat.

Papasan Chair

Papasan chairPapasan style

The Papasan chair is also referred to as the bowl style or the mamasan. Similar to the bowl nickname this is a large rounded, bowl-shaped seat with a slight angle.

The base is made from either wood, metal, or wicker, while the cushion is made from thick cotton or velveteen. There is also an option that the frame can be folded for easy storage, and those are often referred to as “moon chairs”. Papasan chairs are fun for curling up and reading your favorite book.

Upholstery Material for Chairs

Now that the type of chair has been selected, the materials are the next most important decision. Based on the location and type you have selected will greatly impact which materials you should use.

Polyester – Polyester is a good material for durability. This fabric is tested strong against the climate and will still look like it is in tip-top shape. When it comes to any outdoor furniture, such as hammocks or anything wicker, polyester is the way to go!

Leather – Leather tends to be a prestigious material, often given to offices with executive and people in power. This is because leather tends to run more expensive that other materials, so it is saved for the higher up employees or people with more money to place leather things in their homes. Leather is also susceptible to sun damage so it is important to take care of the material.

Cotton Fabric – The pros of cotton fabric will be the way it feels on the skin, the durability, and the vast number of color options available. Unfortunately, this product is susceptible to sun damage and also is flammable if not treated.

Wood – Wood is a lot of peoples go to material, and while it is an amazing material, it is not for everything. It is a sturdy material that comes in many styles and a set of colors and stains. Unfortunately wood can be susceptible to sun damage as well as stains. These will need to be fixed with special cleaners.

Wicker – Wicker is a technique that is used to make woven products. Wicker chairs will be used a lot for outdoor furniture and when looking for something to be lightweight and weatherproof.

Plastic – Plastic is a very cost efficient product and can be used indoors, outdoors, and even with children. Plastic chairs are extremely easy to clean and maintain.

Unfortunately there tend to be much less comfortable than the other materials you can choose from. It is also important to know the durability of the piece you pick out because some plastic chairs are extremely flimsy.

Metal – Metal is often used on stools or dining chairs. Luckily there will be a bit cheaper than solid wood pieces. Metal will also be able to be shaped and color is a wide variety of different shapes and colors and still look phenomenal.

Unique Chair Designs

Others add functionality like storage, while others help create a special experience, such as lounging or reclining.

Sleeper Chair
