Contemporary Lounge Chairs and Ottomans
No living space is complete without an accent chair. There are many different types of accents chairs, but lounge seating is one of the best types for use throughout the home. Furnish a living room, office, or bedroom with a contemporary lounge chair to create additional, comfortable seating. Or opt for a matching lounge chair and ottoman for added comfort. Modern lounge chairs can be distinguished from other types of accent chairs by a few key features. Often, a lounge chair is cushioned and upholstered, creating a welcoming seat for relaxing. Next, a lounge chair features a backrest. Some are low and others are high, but a backrest is a key feature of lounge seating. Finally, many lounge chairs are available with a matching ottoman, allowing the sitter to recline and sit comfortably. Keep these key features in mind as you search for lounge seating and comfortable chairs for every room.
Types of Lounge Chairs
Although lounge chairs share some common features, there’s still a wide variety and different types from which to choose. Lounge furniture includes armchairs, high- and low-back chairs, and swivel chairs. Armchairs provide cocoon-like comfort with a place to rest your arms. Some armchairs take the form of a traditional club chair, with a low back and wide arms, while others are high-back armchairs, such as a wingback.
However, not all high-back lounge chairs have arms. Some high-back styles envelop the sitter without arms. It’s easy to do computer work from this type of seat. A swivel lounge chair rotates up to 360 degrees. This seat is ideal for large, open-concept homes since the chair can pivot from one seating arrangement to the next. A low-back chair is an excellent choice for a small room. Its compact size and small footprint won’t overwhelm the space. Lounge chair and ottoman seating is available in a wide array of upholstery types, including fabric and leather. Leather and wool-blend fabrics are well-suited to high-traffic seating or homes with pets and children.
