Desk chairs – A real seating arrangement in a room that not only provides comfortable places to sit but it also encourages conversation, directs the flow of pedestrian traffic, and draws attention to key hubs in the room. Many of these items are accomplished through the use of secondary seats also known as accent chairs.
Select desk chairs that are in a style that complements the existing sofa, or other furniture in the room. Although accent furniture does not have to be exactly the same style, it should be alike. For example, stuffed accent chairs look better near sofas than straight back accent chairs. Select accent chairs in a color different from the sofa. The accent chairs should look different than other seats but melt in at the same time. Determine where the accent chairs should be placed. If the chairs are to be used to read, place them near a window. If you will use the chairs as overflow seating in a room with a sofa, place them close to the sofa.
Place a coffee table, ottoman or other focal point in the center of desk chairs. Choose a table that is round or oval to counter the straight lines in the chairs. Position the chairs diagonally towards each other, with the seats turning a center focal point. Leave a distance of 2 1/2 meters around the edges of each chair to allow for walking in the room. Place small side tables near accent chairs to hold drinks and table lamps. Floor lamps also work well next to accent chairs if you do not need a side table.
The wingback dates back to the late 1700s and has been designed with an upright back and wings rose from the arms that meet the back of the chair at an angle. This design has been carried out in an effort to protect the chair’s rides from drag. Many traditional wingback chairs have wooden legs and claw feet. They are stuffed, with varying degrees of plushness, or covered in leather.
