Finding the Right seating for You

With entire areas of our homes reserved for “sitting rooms,” the value of quality antique and vintage seating cannot be overstated.

Fortunately, the design of side chairs, armchairs and other lounge furniture — since what were, quite literally, the early perches of our ancestors — has evolved considerably.

Among the earliest standard seating furniture were stools. Egyptian stools, for example, designed for one person with no seat back, were x-shaped and typically folded to be tucked away. These rudimentary chairs informed the design of Greek and Roman stools, all of which were a long way from Sori Yanagi's Butterfly stool or Alvar Aalto's Stool 60. In the 18th century and earlier, seats with backs and armrests were largely reserved for high nobility.

The seating of today is more inclusive but the style and placement of chairs can still make a statement. Antique desk chairs and armchairs designed in the style of Louis XV, which eventually included painted furniture and were often made of rare woods, feature prominently curved legs as well as Chinese themes and varied ornaments. Much like the thrones of fairy tales and the regency, elegant lounges crafted in the Louis XV style convey wealth and prestige. In the kitchen, the dining chair placed at the head of the table is typically reserved for the head of the household or a revered guest.

Of course, with luxurious vintage or antique furnishings, every chair can seem like the best seat in the house. Whether your preference is stretching out on a plush sofa, such as the Serpentine, designed by Vladimir Kagan, or cozying up in a vintage wingback chair, there is likely to be a comfy classic or contemporary gem for you on 1stDibs.

With respect to the latest obsessions in design, cane seating has been cropping up everywhere, from sleek armchairs to lounge chairs, while bouclé fabric, a staple of modern furniture design, can be seen in mid-century modern, Scandinavian modern and Hollywood Regency furniture styles.

Admirers of the sophisticated craftsmanship and dark woods frequently associated with mid-century modern seating can find timeless furnishings in our expansive collection of lounge chairs, dining chairs and other items — whether they’re vintage editions or alluring official reproductions of iconic designs from the likes of Hans Wegner or from Charles and Ray Eames. Shop our inventory of Egg chairs, designed in 1958 by Arne Jacobsen, the Florence Knoll lounge chair and more.

No matter your style, the collection of unique chairs, sofas and other seating on 1stDibs is surely worthy of a standing ovation.

Questions About Armless Living Room Chairs
  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 28, 2021
    For a living room, there are many types of chairs that can qualify as “comfortable” depending on individual preferences. When choosing a comfortable chair, consider the seat, which supports your weight, the back, which provides lumbar support, and the arms, which are especially important if you use the chair for long hours. Comfortable chairs are generally popular furniture pieces, but Mid-Century Modern, Modern and Art Deco styles are often sought at 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    No, accent chairs in a living room don't have to match. In fact, you're free to mix and match accent chairs as you see fit. To tie the room together, choose chairs that have something in common, such as color or materials. On 1stDibs, find a large collection of accent chairs.

  • 1stDibs ExpertJanuary 23, 2024
    Many people call a lounge chair for the living room a chaise longue, meaning "long chair” in French. It's also perfectly acceptable to call a living room chair a lounge chair, as the term doesn't only apply to outdoor furniture. Find a wide variety of lounge chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 2, 2023
    What kind of chairs you put in a living room is up to you. Many people furnish living rooms with accent chairs, which are crafted with both comfort and style in mind.

  • 1stDibs ExpertDecember 12, 2023
    To choose an accent chair for a living room, first measure the floor space available for your chair and the height of the seats of the other furniture in the room. You'll generally want to select a chair that will fit your floor plan and has a seat height that is no more than 4 inches taller or shorter than the other furnishings in the seating area. Next, consider the style and color scheme of your room, looking for chairs that will match. Once you have narrowed down the options, compare materials and prices to select the chair that will suit your preferences, coordinate with the rest of your space and fit your budget. Explore a wide range of accent chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertDecember 12, 2023
    What big living room chairs are called depends on their style. A chair that has an integrated footrest is a lounge chair or a chaise longue, while one with a tall back that curves in at the top is a wingback chair. Chairs that feature footrests that raise and lower with the touch of a button or pull of a lever are recliners. A chair-and-a-half is an extra-wide living room chair with a deep seat. On 1stDibs, find a wide range of living room chairs.
