Take A Seat With Fechters: 5 Ways With Comfy Seating

Take a seat! And when you do, be sure that it is the most comfortable spot in the house! Fechters brings us a collection of quality seating with options for every room. Here we share some clever ways to create a more comfortable place to sit at home.

A cosy lounge

It’s all in the name ‘lounge’ – a place to relax, unwind and ‘lounge’ about in true comfort and style. This is one of the most important areas in the home where comfortable seating cannot be overlooked. Occasional chairs are a great way to add comfort and extra seating for the whole family in the lounge. Single seaters are versatile and mobile. You can play around with the layout until you get it right. Furthermore, beautiful upholstered pieces will add to the comfort factor of the room!


A reading nook

Create a cosy space to read and rejuvenate from the outside world. A reading nook does not need to fill an entire room. In fact, you can use a cosy corner or unused area in the home and create a comfy spot for reading. All you need is a good, comfortable seat where you can easily unwind. Choose an occasional chair with added cushioning for extra comfort.

In the bedroom

The bedroom is more than a place to sleep. You can bring added comfort and tranquillity to this room by creating a beautiful little seating area just for you. It will be a place that does not need to accommodate any guests or family members but can be used exclusively by you. Opt for a pair of occasional chairs around a small table for a cute, cosy and inviting sitting area in your master suite! Choose neutral textures to bring a sense of calm and serenity to this space!

In the guest bedroom

Give your family members and visitors a place to unwind too. Even a small guest bedroom could do with added seating. A single chair in a corner or under a window is a great spot to rest, read and gather one’s thoughts for the day. Choose a comfy upholstered occasional chair, and pair it with a throw and added scatters for even more comfort.

In the entrance hall

If space permits it, why not create an additional seating zone in your home’s entrance. This can be a welcome spot to take off your shoes, sit down after a long day at the office, or simply give you added calmness in the home. Add an occasional seat next to an entrance table or coat rack and make the most of this underused area of the home.
