If you’re looking to update your living room but can’t face the prospect of redecorating, then a new item of furniture could be the way to go.
Undertaking a little bit of feng-shui and moving your pieces around is a fantastic way of making a room feel new without anything actually being “new”. Try placing your sofa against a different wall, or move artwork and pictures around for an instant update to your space. However, if you’re still feeling the urge for something brand new to lift your living room and take it from ‘drab’ to ‘fab’, then investing in a standout piece of furniture is definitely the way to go. Here are 7 chair designs for the ultimate living room update.
- The cocktail chair
It might be small, but a cocktail chair is a beautiful option for smaller living rooms and spaces. How about making a focal point of a bar or drinks trolley with a striking cocktail chair sat next to it for maximum wow factor. We like the Fitz cocktail chair by Swoon Editions.
- The leather armchair
You really can’t go wrong with a classic leather armchair. They seamlessly blend into almost all interior schemes and will never date – making them a sound investment for now and the future. Whether you like the smooth, sharp look of a new leather, or the cracked and rustic look of a worn leather, you won’t regret investing in a leather armchair. Explore the stunning range of leather armchairs available from Arlo & Jacob.
- The high-back fireside chair
Bring some height to your space with a high-back fireside armchair. Traditionally they might be sat in pairs next to a grand old fireplace, but they can work just as well on their own. The extra height means they draw your attention and eye level up, giving the allusion of a grander space. Despite being a more traditional style of chair, this version from Ikea still manages to look modern thanks to the bright yellow fabric.
- The loveseat
If you have a little more room, why not consider a loveseat style chair? They really do make the perfect ‘curl-up’ reading spot for one, or the ideal spot for watching a rom-com or scary movie with your loved one. There are plenty of styles and shapes on offer, but this version by Marks & Spencer caught our eye.
