Hi. I'm John Eason, Principal of John Douglas Eason Interiors. And I'll be talking with you about how to use chairs for decorating a living room. When adding chairs to an existing living room scheme my first consideration is the legs of the furniture that is already in place. In rooms with primarily narrow legs on furniture I'll add chairs that either have a skirt or a low leg so as not to create a forest of legs. In the opposite scenario with existing furniture that is low to the ground I'll usually want my chairs to have narrow legs. When there's a mix of both my goal is to add the type of leg that would best help to make the room feel balanced. Another important consideration is high back versus low back chairs, ideal to use as a sculptural focal point. While chairs are both sculptural and flexible pieces of furniture it is important to not overcrowd a room with them. They should be balanced with other seating types, sofas, chaise and ottoman. Chairs should be positioned either as part of the conversation area, individually or in pairs as reading areas, or flanking tables or case pieces as flexible pull-up chairs. This is John Eason and I hope you'll find this information useful when you're ready to use chairs for decorating a living room.
