Occasional Chairs

Occasional Chairs

Whether they’re featured prominently in your living room or tucked away in a cozy nook in your bedroom, occasional chairs offer comfortable solo seating for everything from reading important documents to staring out your window in a solitary reverie. You can also group multiple occasional chairs together or pair a single occasional chair with a larger seating piece such as a sofa so you can invite conversation and provide the perfect social seating setup. Add a comfortable occasional chair to your home office for guests to sit in, or give yourself a little seating area to enjoy in the kitchen. There are so many possibilities for these versatile chairs.

Williams-Sonoma Home’s occasional chairs come in a variety of styles, and you’ll find great options to fit in seamlessly with both modern and classic home decor. We offer padded swivel chairs on metallic feet and wingback armchairs in a variety of different colors and sizes, giving you the power to choose exactly the right look for your home. From delicate high-back chairs to cube-like, squat club chairs, our options in this product category give you several different options to consider as you look for the ideal occasional chair. Find styles that coordinate perfectly with other furniture pieces from our collection and create a cohesive seating setup for any room.

In addition to coming in a variety of different styles and sizes, our club chairs typically offer a variety of different upholstery options for you to consider as well. Choose from multiple different shades of leather, printed cotton, plush velvet and natural raffia to find the exact color and texture you want. You may even be able to customize details such as nailhead trim finish color and cushion fill material to create the ideal occasional chair for your needs. Some of these chairs are made to order to your exact specifications and therefore cannot be returned, so consider your options carefully as you make your final decision.

Some of our occasional chairs are artistically designed to be eye-catching. These stylish occasional chairs are the perfect interior design element to use as the focal point for a room. Use one or more occasional chairs in a bold print or bright color to shape and define the elements you choose for the rest of the room. Some of our upholstery fabrics may be available by the yard, so you might be able to use the same fabric from your focal-point occasional chair to create small accents elsewhere in the room.

You can also choose a subtle occasional chair style to fit in with a tranquil, minimalistic decor scheme. If you like having a serene, calm bedroom, you can choose an occasional chair in a soothing solid fabric, perhaps in a sumptuous material that perfectly suits the quiet, relaxing setting. Having a separate seating area in your bedroom can actually help you get better sleep at night – some sleep scientists suggest that reading or watching TV in bed can actually make it harder to fall asleep. With a comfortable chair just steps away from your bed, you’ll have the perfect place to relax before you’re ready to turn in for the night.

Once you get your beautiful new occasional chair in place in your home, whether it’s in your living room, bedroom, home office or kitchen, pair it with some comfortable accents so you can make the most out of this new furniture piece. Soft, warm throw blankets are a great accessory to drape over the back of your occasional chair, and if you like to put your foot up, don’t forget to look for a matching ottoman or stool.
