You'll have plenty of fabric choices when it comes to re-upholstering and you also have a choice of wood finish, but since this is such a specialty chair, custom jobs usually take longer and you should plan for it to take 8 to 12 weeks to complete. If you're having one made specially for yourself, some of the more popular designs are French or Italian, and there are many styles to choose from.
Occasional furniture in the modern home comprises items of furniture, usually relatively small in comparison with the other pieces furnishing a room, which can be used on occasion when required. Such items need not be placed in a permanent position, but can be moved around according to its needs. It is not optional, but usually comprises useful items such as coffee tables and side tables.
Flexibility is exceptionally important when buying occasional chairs. The chairs, even when purchased for a specific space in a certain room, should give you the ability to move them to another room at a later stage. Chances are that you are not going to keep your room exactly the same for years to come, over time you will want to make a change.
You'll also find occasional chairs come in a variety of different carved and elegant designs. With their solid feel, when you sit in one, you know that your back is well supported, and you can rely on its sturdiness even for a larger person. The frames, as a rule, have a smooth finish that complements other pieces in the room they are used in. For example, if you have a gorgeous den finished with mahogany wood, you might just as well choose to have mahogany occasional chair. A fleece throw blanket or even a mink blanket laid over the arm adds a tone of casual comfort, too.
