Who doesn't live a side chair? It's one of the most versatile furniture items because it's petite enough to make itself at home in the smallest of spaces.
Don't believe me? Let's take a look at how the side chair can work in any room.
1. Put one in your foyer as a place to slip on shoes or toss your bag when you get home.
2. Keep it in your living room and pull it out for cocktail parties and movie nights.
3. Store it next to your dining buffet and pull it up when you need extra seating.
4. Stack coffee table books on top and use it as a side table.
5. If your bathroom is big enough, use it as a place to stack towels and get primped.
6. Pull it up to your desk or vanity for an extra special seat.
The best part of the side chair (besides it's versatility) is that it's the perfect place to take a decorating risk. It's a safe place to experiment with a bold pattern or color. It doesn't have to look like the rest of your space! That's the point!
