Furnish your space with these cozy picks


The best thing about living in your own home is that you have the liberty to choose the type of furniture that matches your style. However, given the countless choices in the market today, it can be overwhelming to choose just one piece that can tie the entire area together.

To guide you, here are five types of chairs that you may want to consider for your space. Remember to choose the piece that matches your home, lifestyle, and needs. 

Wing Chair

Wing chairs are pieces with tall backs and have a distinct wing-like feature along the sides of the back. Ideally, the purpose of these “flaps” was to envelop the person in warmth coming from the fireplace and protect him from the cold air. Nowadays, wing chairs have become a symbol of elegance with its imposing size and stately character.

Ottomans are known as great space savers in every home. It's a versatile piece that can be used as a footstool or even as a coffee table. You may even store your linens and pillows inside—making it an ideal addition to the living area.

Side Chair

Side chairs can be used as extra seating in the living and dining areas. It is generally known as a chair without arms that can be made out of wood, acrylic or metal.

Armchairs are generally more comfortable to sit on and are therefore added in areas where people sit for prolonged periods: formal dining rooms, living rooms, or reading nooks. It can also be fully upholstered, semi-upholstered or with a frame such as wood or metal.

Contrary to popular belief, love seats are not for lovers to sit on. In the 1th-18th century, women used to seat on them to comfortably fit their wide ball gowns. Now, loveseats have evolved into an inviting piece that can be placed at the edge of a bed or as an extra seating option.
