Occasional chairs.

They finish a room.

Our decorative chairs and dining chairs —our "occasional" chairs — encourage creativity.

By the fire, on the landing, or in a quiet spot in the bedroom, to say we adore these chairs is an understatement. Our customers love to get inventive, creating pieces that finish rooms.

There's many ways to tailor these bespoke chairs: detail on the arms, buttoning or fluting on the back, seat depth, feet or skirts — there's a lot to consider, but it's fun.

Whether you are after a traditional wingback or a modern interpretation of an occasional chair, it's your choice. Get stuck into the range below!

Decisions, decisions…

Each piece of furniture from Balmain & Balmain is handmade to order to your specifications, and our occasional chair range is no different. There are a number of options available to tailor each piece to your tastes. These are a few of the options available to customise on our chairs...

A straight upholstered back, meaning no back cushions. Often this style is seen accessorised with scatter cushions.

Button details add a great deal of character to the chair's back — especially in a contrasting colour.

An elegant showcase of the upholsterer's art, a fluted back's vertical lines accentuate the chair's height.

Back options

Button Back

Fluted back

Plain back

A choice of frilled, boxed or kick-pleat corner skirting can create a much more delicate finish to your chair.

A tapered, geometric leg gives a plain finish to your chair's legs. For those that like neat, clean lines.

Very much the traditional finish, a turned leg is characterful and adds interest to the base of the chair.

Feet options

Turned legs

Skirted finish
