Finding the right chair to complement a space can be an intimidating job. Instead of looking for one which blends in with your current decor, why not include a chair which makes a statement? — Danyelle from Dandee Designs


Parlour Bold Seat – $799

I have never seen a lot of color on a single chair. If your area needs personality, this guy has plenty of it.

West Elm

Ryder Rocking Chair – $599

I don’t think I have noticed a rocker this sleek. It appears so comfortable that I’d be tempted to put it in the bedroom, but it’s so beautiful I would like it out where everyone can see it.


Howell Wingback, Soleil Linen – $1,898

This really is actually the not-so-classic, classic wingback chair.


Lunet Chair – $1,698

The fact that this chair is made from reclaimed French jute sacks gives it a lot of character — but add the colorful welting, and it’s a piece that’s hard to pass up. The tufting is also a charming touch.

Pottery Barn

Arlington Leather Armchair – $1,399

I didn’t think a leather armchair could be so elegant. Slim tapered thighs and slender arms give a usually manly substance a nice feminine feel.

Room & Board

Anson Chair – $1,299

I’m not sure if it’s the cheery yellow or the posh design, but this chair makes me happy just looking at it.

Pottery Barn

Brighton Chair – $399

I think that the neutral peacock print injects just the ideal quantity of interest to this very conventional slipper chair.

Ballard Designs

Toulon Chair – $499

If I own a cottage in France, this is the chair I want to get nestled in by my fire. The black check fabric pairs perfectly with all the French Proven├žal style.


Clara Chair – $999

This chair looks so soft and luxurious. Even with a neutral color, it calls attention to itself.

West Elm

Oliver Chair, Ikat Print – $399

I really like that the dimensions of this chair makes it easy to tuck into almost any corner. Even more, I really like that the cloth ensures it doesn’t go unnoticed.


Mitchell Armless Chair – $139

The ice and brown blue on this chair make it pretty; the cost makes it irresistible.


Carly Chair with Cobalt Blue Length – $899

With its daring cobalt blue frame and crisp white fabric, this chair is similar to some other wingback I have ever seen — and that is not a terrible thing.


Astaire Leather Wingback Chair – $2,199

A metallic wingback is the perfect way to glam up that dull corner. I love the luminosity of this little woman.


Curves Button Chair – $159

I’m imagining this chair in a bachelor’s well-decorated space. It’s manly but accessible.

Restoration Hardware

Couturier’s Chair – $495

The exposed metal frame on the rear of this couturier’s chair makes it look great from every angle.

McCoy Rocker Recliner – $1,256

When I think of a gentleman’s study, this is the type of chair I imagine in the area.

Room & Board

Otis Swivel Chair – $599

It’s around and it swivels. Need I say more?

Room & Board

Leonardo Leather Chair – $999

Who ever thought the words”blue leather” could look so timeless?

Pottery Barn

Charleston Chair-and-a-Half – $1,049

Whenever you have the distance, nothing is more cozy than a chair-and-a-half. This guy would be perfect in front of the TV with a bowl of popcorn and a hot throw.

Restoration Hardware

Versailles Domed Chair – $1,795

Even if you don’t reside in an 18th Century chateau in France, then it’s still possible to pretend like you’re doing. This domed chair will bring instant”ooh la la” to any area.
