We all want our guests to feel right at home and the easiest way to do that is have a place for them to sit! We are all about clever seating solutions that can serve multiple purposes and functions throughout the home. Here are some of our favorites in our Edge Home #22 Vanessa in the Utah Valley Parade of Homes by Gatehouse no.1 designers Stephanie Holdaway and Chanelle Anderson.
End chairs or what we call “Captains Chairs” are larger, upholstered chairs that proudly sit and the ends of the table. Having upholstered dining not only makes for a more comfortable seat, but brings warmth into a space that usually consists of hard surfaces. Best part? Upholstered chairs are so gorgeous that can easily transition into other spaces throughout the home when additional seating is needed!
Ottomans & Poufs
We love pairing poufs or small ottomans in family rooms, living rooms, or sitting areas. Not only do they look adorable and are a fun way to bring in color and pattern, but they serve many functions: foot rest, coffee table, and additional seating! When looking for ottomans, consider upholstered over hard surfaces. That way it’ll be ready and inviting for anyone to take a seat. Leathers and durable fabrics are best since they get a lot of use. We love adding a tray with accessories on top so that it can easily be moved!
