Multifunctional rooms are a gift in any household, especially if space is of a premium. And whilst our bedrooms should be used first and foremost as a sanctuary to escape the day to day, they are increasingly becoming a place to work, to read, and to unwind with Netflix of an evening.
If you use your bedroom in such a way, adding a small bedroom chair in an empty or underused corner is the perfect way to diversify your space, and create a peaceful zone to work or relax away from your bed.
Depending on the space available to you, a compact yet comfortable armchair, a neat swivelling tub chair, or a petite slipper chair (more on that below,) can become a spot from which to get productive, lose yourself in a good book, or just have some peace and quiet away from a busy household.
When it comes to organising your bedroom, there are many ways to make the most of your floorspace. If you have natural recesses, a floor-to-ceiling bay window, or empty areas next to a wardrobe or dresser, adding a small accent chair won’t compromise on critical space for essentials like a bedside table. Those with ample room can use bedroom chairs to create a comfortable home office, or a reading nook by adding task lighting and piling on cushions and throws.
Whether you’re considering plush velvet, a traditional buttoned back armchair, or a sleek mid-century design, we’ve collated the best small bedroom chairs to shop right now.
