Chairs

It’s easy to create a comfortable and relaxing living room when you furnish it with the right chairs. Usually, this type of setup consists of a love seat, sofa, or corner chair, but each can be bought separately depending on how you’d like your space to look. Oversized accent chairs can play both fashionable and functional roles in any seating area.

With their large size, these chairs can visually balance a large sofa or sectional or make grand, expansive rooms feel more intimate. Their generous proportions also provide comfortable seating and can even allow two people to cuddle up comfortably. Sit and Sleep Gallery makes it simple to reap all of the benefits of oversized accent chairs with this diverse selection of pieces that you can browse and buy online.

Choose the right upholstery:

Cotton and twill oversized accent chairs can hold up to heavy use and have a pleasant texture to ensure comfort. For chairs that will be used less frequently, consider a luxurious fabric like velvet, linen, or chenille. Genuine leather and faux leather also have a sumptuous feel but are very simple to clean. Polyester and polyester-blends will remain vivid in areas that are exposed to intense sunlight.

Consider frame construction:

For oversized accent chairs that can hold up to years of daily use, focus on pieces that feature kiln-dried hardwood frames. Ones with reinforced corner-blocked joints or screwed, glued, or dowelled joints will be the absolute sturdiest. Plywood and particleboard frames are a more economical choice.

One final consideration when considering oversized accent chairs is filling. If softness and plushness are your top priority, look for chairs that are filled with down or feathers. High-density foam filling is commonly used in accent chairs due to its durability and comfortable support. Prefer chairs with a smoother look? Options with wool or cotton batting will suit your tastes.
