8 Wildly Creative Seating Arrangements That Excite & Enchant
It wouldn't be an overstatement to say that most of our time at home is spent either sleeping or sitting.
So why not do it in style?
After all, if we're going to pass so many hours in one place why not make it pleasurable?
Chairs and other furniture used for seating should be elegant, comfortable, practical, and most of all unique. They should reflect the individuals that own them while being able to draw people together in a fun and sociable setting.
What follows are 8 of the most beautiful, exciting, eccentric and singular chairs and seats you'll ever see.
1. Cool & Contemporary
Sleek, modern, curvy, yet comfortable—these chairs fit right into the contemporary decor of this room, complimenting the floors yet contrasting nicely against the darker walls.
They're easily the most noticeable items in the picture.
2. Swivel & Chic
You can't have a bar without stools, and these ultra-modern pieces of furniture blend perfectly into this futuristic interior.
After a long day at the office there's nothing like inviting some friends over for a drink. And what better way to celebrate than clinking glasses together on your favorite stool?
Cool. Informal. And social. These stools have it all.
3. Totally Groovy!
Chairs are so commercial, man! Bring back the 60's with this bean-bag that hippies are sure to love.
Such a bright and colourful arrangement is perfect for lying back and relaxing; plus, the floor cushions are a great addition to the 60's throwback theme.
4. Where's the Chair?
Speaking of cushions....Here we have them as the only seating option. While not for everybody, this hip, stylish setup is perfect for young couples, bachelors and free-spirited artists.
The raised seating is aesthetically unique, but also serves a more functional purpose by aligning our eyesight with the TV.
Simple, clean and artistic, this arrangement harmonizes effortlessly with the rest of the apartment.
5. Eccentric Appeal
This wildly florid chair sticks out in a room of grays and blacks, adding splashes of life and colour to the decor.
Fun and unrestrained, this seat simultaneously manages to stand out yet also conform to the eclectic vibe of the room.
6. This Booth's Taken
Ever feel like grabbing a quick bite at a good ol' fashioned American diner? Now you can in the comfort of your own home.
This very cool and retro booth makes a fantastic design statement, its vivid red colour helping it to catch the eye in a roomful of whites. At the same time, its sharp-edged frame allows it to blend nicely into the highly geometric and angular surroundings.
Best of all, booths are social gathering places by nature. So look forward to conversing freely with friends and family if you have one of these at home.
7. Natural Charms
The aesthetic appeal of these chairs is obvious: their materials contrast starkly with the modern appliances in the background; their unique grains and patterns make them one of a kind (as opposed to the mass-produced metallic goods), and they harmonize with the room's more natural elements, such as the floor and arched wooden ceiling.
While not as practical or comfortable as most chairs, their charm lies in their remarkable beauty.
8. Seats With a View
One of the great allures of apartment living is the view. Here we have a fun, social arrangement of hanging chairs and other seats.
Perfect for summer afternoons or late nights, balcony seating encourages conversation between friends but is also great for some “alone time.”
Eight very different seating arrangements each with their own unique styles and strengths.
Chairs, stools, cushions and beanbags—there's something here to meet everyone's home decor desires.
