TOP 10 0CCASIONAL CHAIRS
1. The Velvet Chair
The Granville is a beautifully understated tub chair, available in two on-trend dusky colours, Duck Egg and Smoked Pearl. The two colours complement each other perfectly and the velvet texture of the seat adds maximum comfort to this round backed chair, giving it an exquisite finish. The simple yet stylish seat would work in a hotel lobby or a salon, but would look just as good as an occasional chair in a living or dining room.
Style it with: The Hammond Scandi Style Side Table
Mood: With its rustic, wooden legs and muted colourways, the Granville lends itself to an interior full of depth and moody hues. This look embraces cosy, darker spaces.
2. The Leather Chair
Warm coloured wood, supple leather seats and a round, chrome base, the Belfast Leather Swivel Chair would make a fantastic statement piece in a luxurious interior. Drawing inspiration from the art deco marine style of the 1930s, the seat and arms of the chair are made with a supreme slimline leather, which gives off a beautiful shine, only adding to the chair’s charm. The supple leather seats are extremely relaxing, so put your feet up and unwind with a newspaper and a scotch. If you have some extra space, you could also try adding the matching Medusa Pouf.
Mood: Think Gatsby, glamour and cocktails! Rich chocolate and midnight blue with metallic accents make up this interior scheme. Integrity of material and nods to Art Deco and 1930s styles are also key to creating this lavish environment.
3. The One You Can Colour Coordinate
Whether you’re designing your living room or your restaurant, colour coordination is a very important factor. You could choose a 10% accent colour to work with or a colour generating app to find out which colours to add to your mood board. Whichever way you choose, it’s exciting trying to figure out which colours are best to incorporate. The Sorrento tub chairs come in four different colours which perfectly complement each other. Mix and match the chairs, working the ‘Wine Red’ and ‘Dusky Pinks’ or the ‘Golden Honey’ and ‘Pine Green’ together or add a mix of all four colours to a minimalist white space to make a bold statement.
Mood: The jewel colourways and gold legs of the Sorrento chair make it a perfect addition to a scheme with a luxurious feel. Think of rich chocolate box colours with warming neutrals and flecks of gold styling for this scheme.
4. The Accent Chair
If you’re looking for something to add a splash of luxury to your space, the Lourdes Velvet Button Back Chair is upholstered in a sultry blue shade of velvet, with stud detailing and a pressed button back - very elegant! This unique chair will bring even the dullest of spaces to life. Use it in a hotel lobby, a bar, your dressing room or your study – whether your interior space has a modern feel or is pure vintage, the Lourdes chair can work wonders for your interior.
Style it with: The Keaton Round Wooden Coffee Table
Mood: A scheme of classic shapes and colours. Furniture pieces would be matching and an emphasis on quality would be apparent here. Styling would be minimal and have purpose – think statement lamps to create the perfect lighting and highlight key pieces of furniture in the room.
5. The Retro Chair
A retro inspired space sometimes needs that extra quirk to keep it looking fresh. Bold reds, blues and yellows are fundamental to completing a retro look. Add some extra warmth to a bare bedroom or a splash of rich colour to an uninspiring space with the Lille Velvet Cocktail Chair. The retro style of this chair makes it a charming feature which will add character and luxury appeal to a retro inspired room.
Style it with: The Metal Lattice Coffee Table
Mood: The burnt orange colourway of the Lille brings 70’s luxury to mind. Mid-century modern pieces are a must for this scheme along with geometric details in furniture and artwork. Styling is kept simple and usually includes references to books or music.
6. The One With the Pressed Button Detailing
For something classic and stylish that would look great in both vintage and contemporary spaces, the Chambery is a delightful occasional chair. With a traditional Chesterfield design and scroll arms, the Chambery is a quintessential vintage inspired addition to any home or country pub. The emerald velvet upholstery also gives the chair a luxurious appearance whilst still maintaining its traditional roots.
Style it with: The Dijon Velvet Chesterfield Sofa in Smoked Pearl
Mood: A bold interior with a focus on dark wood pieces. The scheme is without a doubt a classic, with a substantial nod to vintage elements. Styling would evoke elements of the past but in a minimal and luxurious way.
7. The Curved Back Chair
The curved back chair is one of the most sought-after styles of 2020, because of its curvy, unusual design, the chairs can create a fantastic focal point. Our take on the curved back chair is the bold and beautiful Salisbury. The shell-like detailing on the back of the chair is very unique and on-trend. The Salisbury’s minimalist legs give the chair a mid-century inspired look, making it a smart choice for a retro or vintage inspired coffee shop, boutique hotel or dressing room.
Style it with: The Haymarket Sideboard
Mood: A very contemporary scheme. Abstract artwork and typography will be seen here and bold use of monochromatic colourways with splashes of vibrant saturated colour. Styling is maximalist yet sleek keeping to only the colours within the scheme.
8. The One Representing Continental Couture
The Victory Leather Armchair represents the continental couture style of the 1930s. Inspired by furniture from those grandiose ocean liners, this is the godfather of armchairs. With a smooth supple leather available in a rich Black and subtle Cream, this handsome chair would work as an occasional chair in a library or study, or a lavish bar or restaurant. By the time you’re finished styling, your contemporary space will be oozing with glamour.
Style it with: The Langley Coffee Table
Mood: This scheme is timeless. Neutrals and minimalism are key, items are well-considered and purchased with a long shelf life in mind. Styling is kept to only flora and fauna to keep the scheme fresh and sophisticated.
9. The Floral Occasional Chair
Looking to create a bold statement for your interior? Floral patterns are set to make a return in the Summer months and it’s great to keep on top of the ever-changing trends. Be courageous and use the Venice Patterned Armchair as an extra chair in your living room, or kit out your orangery will the full set using the armchair paired with the stunning Verona Sofa. The chair would also look fantastic in a country pub next to tall Georgian windows to add a bit of contrast to your space.
Mood: For those who do things differently. An eclectic bazaar resembling Aladdin’s cave. This interior is styled to perfection packed with treasures collected over time. Anything goes in this interior and boldness is key!
10. The One with a French Pink Twist

The Carver and Side chair in Blush Pink have a luxurious appearance with their pressed button backs, giving the chairs a dramatic French twist. The velvet upholstery also brings softness and life to an interior thanks to its elegant characteristics.

Style it with: The Valance Velvet Blanket Box in Pink
Mood: A chic, French inspired bedroom with a certain je ne sais quoi. Layered with moody pastel tones, this room will have a subtle, romantic feel, creating a sanctuary for sleep.
