Fabric chairs are lifestyle pieces - ready to adapt and meet your every need.

This is a paradise for reading, tasting tea, and getting away from the hustle and bustle of the world. The space is limited to one person, it is your personal relaxation area.

Every interior designer knows that the right fabric accent chairs can set the style tone and comfort for an entire room. The challenge is finding the fabric chair that works best for you.

Here are the best tips from WLAND's upholstered furniture experts on how to choose upholstered and feature chairs to complete your living space.


Functionality is always the first consideration. How will the fabric chair be used? Will it be a reading chair, a statement piece, or both? Their main purpose is functional seating, but also as decorative elements to enhance the aesthetics of spaces.

Fabric chairs and upholstered chairs are versatile pieces of furniture that can be used in a variety of settings. The primary use depends entirely on your needs and the room your chair will be in.

They are especially useful in a living room setting, where they complement sofa seating because of their proportions to be both visually and spatially lighter.

Knowing the main function is the best starting point before focusing on aesthetics.


The style you choose will be a personal choice. The balance is finding a unique fabric chair that you like while making sure its style complements the overall aesthetic of the room.

The color palette, textures, and existing patterns of the room will all be considered, as well as the desired mood and atmosphere. The shape and proportions of fabric and accent chairs can also change the feel of a room.

A less relaxed area might feature soft curves and upholstered fabrics, while a slightly more formal space might lend itself to more structured chairs.

Low-profile occasional chairs allow you to see the scenery in your living environment. And higher backs tend to make chair settings more formal.


A comfortable fabric chair can be the most popular seat in the house. Every interior designer carefully considers the cushioning, support, and materials used to ensure that fabric chairs provide long-lasting comfort.

Even if your occasional chair is just decorative, or an accent, it needs to be comfortable. It also needs to allow you to sit with good posture, or take care of you if you want to lounge around and snuggle up with a book.

Getting the support right is especially important since many fabric and specialty chairs end up being reading chairs that take hours to read. Comfortable fabric chairs are a must.

If you need back and neck support, a taller profile or back design may be better for you. Also, check the depth - it doesn't make sense to sit on it and feel like Goldilocks with your legs dangling out front instead of dangling comfortably over the edge.


The right fabric and accent chairs can help create cohesion and balance in your living space.

Your occasional chair should 'talk' to the rest of the living room seating area, or it can be installed in the corner of the space as a resting reading area.

By considering the layout of the room from all angles, you can find the right placement for the fabric chair and ensure it fits seamlessly into the overall design.

Instead of installing another sofa, you can install two chairs and a sofa to increase seating capacity, create visual interest, and lighten the environment. They are also good for placement between different areas, like from the living room to the dining room, because you won't see the back of the sofa, which looks visually dominant. For reading chairs, natural lighting is also worth considering in layout design. 

Nooks of the room work best as reading areas—especially if they’re flooded with natural light. For the perfect match - add a footstool as well.


With every piece of furniture, durability is always a top consideration. Finding a design made with high-quality materials will ensure that the statement chair you choose will last.

Durability is an important consideration. Long-lasting products are best, they can last a long time if used frequently or located in a high-traffic area.

Cleaning and maintenance requirements are another aspect to be aware of before making a final buying decision.

The durability of the upholstered chair fabric or leather you choose is critical.

Material quality can really determine the longevity of your creation. At WLAND, all fabrics are strictly tested.

Fabrics and Finishes

Simply choose a fabric chair fabric to create a fabric chair with a lot of personality.

Bright colors, rich patterns, or textured fabrics will add a whole new dimension to the look of a room.

You need to decide if you want a more performant chenille fabric chair or a velvet fabric chair that looks luxurious. Color choices can be as creative as you like. Textiles are a real opportunity to add character.

Both feel and finish is very individual. For some, the fabric may feel warmer and more comfortable, while others will simply opt for the smooth feel of premium leather.
