Every room needs seating of one form or another. Lounges will often uses sofas or settees but these are space hungry and inflexible items of furniture. In a small room they consume all the space, making it difficult for people to move around behind the sofas. Ironically in a very large room a sofa or even a couple of large settees can look badly out of place, because there is just so much room outside the space enclosed by the sofas.
The majority of occasional chairs are from a European background in 18th century design. Regardless of what theme you would like to have for your room, remember that in addition to occasional chairs, you may have a sectional sofa or some other type of furniture, even a futon, that may need recovering or replacing. Before you purchase new furniture consider many options such as futon covers, slipcovers, duvet covers, and more.
