A Bergere arm chair is an enclosed upholstered French armchair with an upholstered back and armrests on upholstered frames. Fitted with a loose, tailored seat cushion the Bergere is designed for lounging in comfort with its deep and wide seat. The loose seat cushion is what keeps it from feeling overly formal. Bergere chairs may have flat,“raked” backs or have coved backs which sweep without a break in to the armrests.
Scale is one of the most important considerations when purchasing furniture. For any room, the size of the accent chair should be in proportion to the space so the room doesn’t diminish it, or vice versa. Make sure the height of the seat is in balance with other seating in the room. For tall guests, avoid chairs that are too low to the ground; for petite guests, avoid chairs with a deep seat length.
The good thing is that there is no hard and fast rule about how furniture accents should be chosen and placed so its good to know that these stylish single chairs, with or without arms, can be used just about most areas of the home. Make up a cosy nook in a corner of the room, Use as a single chair that serves as a great companion for the sofa, Set it up as a private seating area with a small coffee table and reading lamp, Looks nice when set in place as “duo seating” (with a little round top table) at the foot of your bed.
The stylish occasional chair: Typically light and chic, this type of chair is a multi-functional piece of furniture that can be used throughout your home, including the living room, parlour or your home office. The generous wingchair: The large size makes it the perfect accompaniment to a sofa and great alternative to a love seat. Place it near the fireplace in your bedroom or living room or be creative and use a pair as the head chairs at either ends of your dining table. Note that since these chairs are heavy, they cannot be moved around too much.
