Types and Usage

Do you know there are more than 100 types of Chairs. From that today I will share with you all home Chairs.

There are mainly 9 types of home Chairs:

1. Wing Chair: Although the wing chair is a very traditional kind of chair, it has been reinterpreted and given a more contemporary flavor by many modern designers.

2. Occasional Chair: An occasional chair is just that, a chair that is used occasionally. It is usually an extra chair that is used when you have guests over. Occasional chairs often end up being accent pieces in a room, selected for their decorative value more than anything else.

3. Club Chair: A club chair is a cushy, upholstered chair with arms. It has arms and a low back and is usually upholstered in leather. The term comes from 19th-century England where gentlemen’s clubs that had this type of chairs for relaxing.

4. Side Chair: Typically, dining room chairs are side chairs. A side chair is a small chair with a frame that is not upholstered. It has a solid frame and it may or may not have arms. The seat and back may or may not be upholstered. Besides use in the dining room, side chairs may add extra seating in a living room or other spaces. They are not bulky like club chairs.

5. Slipper Chair: A slipper chair is an armless upholstered chair with short legs that let it sits closer to the ground. It is its low height that distinguishes it, and also makes it a comfortable choice for many.

6. Recliners: A reclining chair is popular for reading and watching media. You can find traditional and stylish versions in leather or fabric. A recliner lets you put your feet up and relax, then stow the footrest when you’re done.

7. Chaise Longue: A chaise is essentially a long chair, one on which you can stretch your legs without having to use an ottoman. The back is usually at a semi-reclining angle, and this is the chair you use for relaxing.

8. Chair and a Half: A chair and a half is a very useful piece of furniture, being slightly larger than a chair and smaller than a loveseat. The width of a chair and half makes it an ideal piece of furniture for lounging. The chair featured here is modern in style, but you can find one in any style. It may have a tight back and a tight seat, or have loose cushions for the back and seat. It could also have a tight back with a loose seat.

9. Klismos Chairs: The graceful curves of a klismos chair have assured its popularity throughout the history of furniture. The klismos chairs were first used by Greeks, but the form has been reinterpreted over the centuries.
