A Guide to Choosing the Right Chair for your Home

October 5, 2021

If you are moving into a new home, re-decorating, or just looking to buy a new item of furnishing for your house, you know how difficult it gets at times to make a decision about the smallest and simplest decor items. Most of our confusion these days comes from the fact that there are just too many options. We’ve all been there, right? It’s the same feeling as being a child in a candy-store and being perplexed by the sheer number of choices around us. When it comes to luxury shopping for luxe decor over the internet, the choices are no less. In fact, the decision making gets even tougher because most, if not all, of the products that you see on ecommerce stores and in catalogues, are of the highest quality.

In recent times, as we see that more and more people are spending most of their time in the comfort of their homes, we also see ourselves getting more invested in our spaces. And we’re not only paying more attention to what our space looks like, but also towards how comfortable we feel in them, everyday. While looks and styles can be evaluated by looking at a piece, it is hard to imagine how soft or plush or comfortable it will be for everyday use in the long run. A comfortable chair that you intend to use everyday is as important an item of decor in our home as anything else, like a carpet, sofa-set, or a table, and definitely deserves some pondering over before making the final purchase. And given the large number of choices available, it is quite easy to be overwhelmed. To overcome it, we have come up with a few things that you can keep in mind that will help you in making the right decision.

The type of chair:
The first thing you need to decide is the type of chair that you intend to buy. If ergonomics and comfort are the only things that you are looking for, then an office-chair is your best bet. These are fully adjustable and come with a lot of features such as lumbar support, rotating mechanism, and rocking ability, and are made strictly for comfort. These, however, may not always go with your luxe decor as they are mostly available in just basic colours. However, if you are flexible on the type of chair, then you can consider anything from a recliner to a couch-like single-seater which you will definitely be able to match or contrast with your home decor.

Upholstery material:
Most office chairs come in vinyl or leatherette upholstery, but other types of chairs can be found in other materials as well – think suede. When deciding this, always opt for a material that is easy to clean and maintain.

The colour:
The colour of your comfortable chair should depend on the surrounding decor colour. You can choose to match, or to contrast with your decor as well. Using a colour that accents the rest of your decor is always a great idea. Red and gold, green and silver, or blue and gold, are classic examples that will almost never fail.

The make of the furniture:
A comfortable chair is not only easy to sit in, but also easy to move around. Bulky sizes no longer work, and lightweight and modern looking styles are definitely in. They also look great in contemporary and urban spaces, and can do wonders to glam-up your space.

When choosing luxe décor items, it is always okay to break the rules. A bit of compromise towards, or away from, comfort or style is always okay. We hope that the above points will make chair-hunting easier for you. Happy decorating!
