  • What is an antique occasional chair?

    Antique occasional chairs are perhaps the most decadent piece of furniture in the home. They aren’t dining chairs, sofas or armchairs. They don’t serve a particular purpose. And you don’t need to use them every day. Antique occasional chairs are beautiful to look at, and perfect when you need the occasional extra seat. Antique occasional chairs are over 100 years old. These beauties have stood the test of time. You’ll find careful carvings, beautiful craftsmanship and a sense of the lavish times they came from. Choose from a range of styles in our antique occasional chair collection. There are tassels and frills for pure decoration. Luxurious velvet perfect for sinking into. And deep, rich woods to add to the rest of your antique furniture style.
  • How to style your antique occasional chair?

    Antique occasional chairs liven up any corner of your home. They’re bold. They’re fabulous. And they’re beautiful. Here are a few tips for styling your antique occasional chair. Add an occasional chair to the hallway next to your console table and allow them to make a grand entrance. Pair them with an antique mirror to brighten up a dark corner. The mirror will reflect the light, and a boldly coloured antique occasional chair will add brightness and comfort. Use an antique occasional chair in the bedroom. They’re perfect for yesterday’s clothes and other items that are on their way to their permanent home. Or you could pair them with a dressing table for true luxury. Add in a vase and a hand mirror for an antique boudoir feel. Add a pair of antique occasional chairs to the dining room. These pretty pieces can be used as extra seating during parties, and as beautiful show pieces in everyday life. Make sure the wood and upholstery match with your dining chairs and dining table for a cohesive dining room look. A pair of antique occasional chairs can also be used to frame a piece of artwork you love. Add them on either side to frame the piece, or place them opposite and allow people the opportunity to admire your favourite art. In the sitting room, occasional chairs can be used around an antique fireplace. They’re comfortable on warm, cosy nights. Or they can simply frame the fireplace and draw attention to the area. Wherever you choose to put them, antique occasional chairs can add decorative style to any room. Browse our selection, or choose even more styles from our full occasional chairs collection.
