The home is a space that inspires relaxation, leisure, and respite. To achieve these outcomes, we need to have comfortable furniture, such as chairs where we can sit on. 

When it comes to the living room, there are many chair options to choose from. We will discuss the most common modern chairs that will be a beautiful and functional addition to any home. 

Living Room Chair Types 

Chairs must be installed in the living room. Apart from the large sofa or couch that somehow represents a family unit, the living room also needs stylish modern chairs that will bring much-needed personality to your living room. 

Modern chairs are also perfect conversation starters when you have first-time guests at home. Your preference in modern chair styles reflects your sense of style and your perception of what beauty should look like in this day and age. 

Here are the most common options for living room seating: 


A chair is not only a furniture piece where one can sit on, but it is also a medium for self-expression. You may choose a standard or normal-looking sectional for your living room, but your choice in the style of chairs will significantly influence the final look of your home.  For instance, an armchair accommodates only one person. Modern armchairs come in various shapes and sizes, but their common denominator, of course, is the arm support section on both sides of the seat. Make sure to buy an armchair that reflects your personality and that which is within your budget, too. Unless you have extra cash to splurge, it’s best to limit your spending on armchairs to a minimum. 


Recliners are modern chairs that exude luxury and comfort. It is believed that it was Napoleon Bonaparte who first owned this specific chair type. Since then, the recliner has undergone many changes. Today, recliners may feature simple mechanisms to slide the seat down, and there are also modern recliners that adjust automatically with a few clicks of the button. Recliners are also ideal if you have family members who find it difficult to get out of traditional chairs. Lift-assist recliners are modern chairs in that they feature mechanisms that assist persons with disabilities in practicing independent living at home. 

Round Chair

Modern round chairs aren’t for everybody. They might not fit well if you like the conventional shape of boxed chairs. But if you want space and freedom when sitting down, modern round chairs have oversized seats for you. Standard dimensions of oversized round chairs are 58 inches in width and cushion depths of up to 30 inches. This means that modern round chairs may seat two people, an excellent chair for relaxing or snuggling with someone. 

Choose The Right Chairs

Chairs also make as excellent accent pieces to any living room. For some, you may choose to personalise them by choosing a fabric covering. To stay true with the contemporary style of your home, suede and leather are highly recommended for stylish chairs.
