One of the very classic design staples has to be a pair of seats. While it’s nice every now and then to mix things up with separates, the symmetry of a pair of seats adds grounds and balance the expression of a room. Having a bevy of combinations, configurations and types to select from, a pair of seats is a perfect addition to any space.

Having a bedroom sitting room doesn’t need a lot of extra space. A pair of seats at the end of the bed in lieu of a footboard lends that finished appearance and provides the perfect place for studying or having a cup of coffee. If you are trying to avoid the matchy seem that too many pairs could achieve, try out a pair of mismatched night lamps or tables to mix things up.

Many people decide to place all their furniture against the wall, believing it will make the room appear bigger. A room often appears more inviting, however, when bits like these spool chairs are put at an angle with loads of space around them.

These Barcelona seats by Knoll help specify the living room and dining room spaces without producing the visual block a solid couch can. The seats’ armlessness lends a lighter appearance.

When choosing where to set a pair of seats, consider the focus of the room. In this area the gorgeous mantel is the thing that draws the eye. All the other furniture in this room, such as the two pairs of seats, is placed in a way to accommodate and accentuate which focal point.
Conventional design thinking will have us believe that upholstering seats in large, bold patterns is a risky move and that adhering into smaller layouts is safer. But a bold layout, especially in a room like this where there’s little visual competition, is vibrant and provides a great deal of personality.
For furniture durability and mobility, picking a neutral cloth is key — this way you may add massive pillows in multiple colors and patterns. It is especially enjoyable to have a different pillow for each and every season.
In a room proportioned for multiple sitting areas, using a C-shape configuration to get a couch and a pair of seats may work perfectly. Consider putting the seats at perfect right angles to get a cleaner, more compact look; to achieve a less tailored feel, angle them.
While couches take up a fixed amount of space, a pair of seats adds almost as much seats and infinite combinations. A pair of seats may be used to complement a couch (or pair of sofas) at a U shape, like what’s seen here. To shake the appearance, use one sofa and a pair of seats on the other hand or, to get a bigger room, place the seats in an L shape in relation to the sofa. Whichever configuration you choose, a pair of seats is a flexible addition to the decor.
