How to Revive Your Living Room with Statement Seating

How to Revive Your Living Room with Statement Seating

October 21, 2016 by Tanya Riz Tan

The living room is one of the most important areas of a living space: it’s where you can entertain friends, read a good book, or settle in with a glass of wine at the end of a long day. If you don’t currently love your living room decor, sometimes all it takes is a new statement chair to instantly revive your seating area.

Just like an art piece, a statement chair draws the eye’s attention, so it’s the perfect piece to reflect your personality. (It also doubles as a great conversational piece when you’re entertaining company!) From geometric accent chairs to transparent ghost chairs, here are a few ideas for your next statement chair, no matter what your budget is. 

  1. Geometric Chair

Rather than splurge on a new painting or print for your walls, try adding a geometric accent chair instead to liven up the aesthetics in your living room. If you’re searching for an accent chair on a budget, go for a Konstantin Grcic-inspired geometric chair. The distinctive design will add an eclectic look to your living room seating area and can be moved to the dining room for additional seating as well.

  1. Wegner Style Shell Chair

There’s no doubt a Wegner-style shell chair adds a sleek look to any living room. While it's not as attention grabbing as a geometric chair, we love how its beautiful design functions as a more subtle accent piece. If you already have a light hued sofa, go for a shell chair in a birch wood with caramel brown leather or pale grey upholstery like this one: https://www.wazofurniture.com/products/wegner-style-shell-chair

  1. Eames Molded Lounge Chair and Ottoman

If you’re thinking of splurging on one piece to update your decor, a leather lounge chair is a great investment that will instantly add a mid-century look to your seating area. A leather lounge chair with warm wood accents like the Eames Lounge Chair will complement any existing wood pieces that you have (like a coffee table or bench). As a plus, this lounge chair is very comfortable as well.  

  1. Ghost Chair

If you’re a minimalist but still searching for your ideal accent chair, a transparent chair is a great budget-friendly way to add an eclectic feel to a monochromatic living room. Ghost chairs are a lot more than meets the eye: they can add a modern feel to your seating area and help give the illusion of an airy, brighter space.
