Living room furniture: unique chairs

Sheila Byers Sheila Byers
Loading admin actions …

A couch and a table undoubtedly belong to the basic equipment of a living room. And, when it comes to comfortable furniture, you can never have enough—that's why we like to use lots of chairs to have additional flexible seating for ourselves and our guests. While the sofa and coffee table are almost never moved out of place, we can realign a chair at any time, moving it around to our favourite positions—maybe towards the window, near the radiator or simply facing the television.

To give you an idea of how diverse chairs for the living room can be, we have put together a couple of different designs of our experts.

Bold colours

​While we can sit quietly on flat, non-upholstered chairs in the dining room, seats in the living room should be soft and cosy. A padded seat and, ideally, some extra pillows can increase our comfort tremendously. And that's why this chair is also an ideal piece of furniture for the living room: Thanks to the upholstered seat and the padding on the back, we can sit comfortably. A strong shade of blue geometric patterns make the chair also an eye-catcher in any room.

For animal lovers

 Living room by Adele-C



From the front, this piece of furniture looks like an ordinary, plain chair. But viewed from the back, the chair surprises us with an XXL print. The portrait of the dog, which is done in a black-and-white pixelated design, would add a fun modern element to any style of living room.

Since the exceptional detail is located on the back, this chair is an ideal a piece of furniture to place in the centre of the room, perhaps to the side of the couch.

Scandinavian design

Koila Lounge Armchair


The furniture of French furniture manufacturer Alki is popular for its simple and functional design. With its mix of natural materials and subtle colours, the furniture fits perfectly into any living room with a Scandinavian style. 

The model seen here, the Koila, is a lounge chair with legs made of solid oak and multi-layered wood in the seat and the back. This construction creates stability, while ensuring comfort. Two pillows are included in this model, increasing the level of comfort. 

The perfect TV chair

The mere sight of this relaxing and reclining chair sets with us at ease somewhat. We can not wait to put our feet up and lean the backrest back, all ready to settle in with our favourite book or the latest blockbusters on television. The integrated headrest and rounded armrests allow for a very comfortable seating experience.


Is extravagant furniture exactly what you living room is missing? Then fill that need stylishly with this sumptuous chair. The baroque pattern of the fabric is crowned with a sparkling black cushion. Even the frame itself is embellished with decorative elements, as can be seen curving along the armrests and delicate chair legs.

Retro style

With its glossy finish and the specific structure, this chair reminds us immediately of the fifties. It is, therefore, the ideal seat for a living room done in 1950s style. The bright blue is also a unique colour for living room furniture, something that brings a pop of fun to the room.

Cars in the living room

​Fans of retro designs will also appreciate these creations modelled after classic car designs. They let you park an old Mercedes or VW Beetle right in the living room.

A contemporary rocking chair

Here we see the world's first rocking chair made of carbon-reinforced concrete. The ergonomic shape of the chair and the comfortable upholstery make the rocking experience something very special. To protect the floor of the room, the rocker of the chair has been covered with a rugged leather. If you like to decorate in the industrial style, try this wonderfully eye-catching piece of furniture.
