Chair And A Half

Get Extra Comfy in Your Chair and a Half

When is a chair more than a chair? When you add just a little bit of extra room for you to sprawl out on.

More is always better. And at Bassett Furniture, we couldn't agree more. That's why we offer a great selection of oversized accent chairs to be enjoyed by you, your family, and your guests. Add that extra space to lounge and relax with our beautiful selection of chairs.

More room, more comfort, more style, more functionality. A chair and a half simply offer more of your favorite seat. Find the perfect chair and a half for your home at Bassett, online or in-store.

What is a Chair and a Half?

In this case, the name describes the furniture perfectly. A chair and a half offers about half of a seat extra than a traditional living room chair. This oversized chair is deeper, wider, and overall larger than a regular-size armchair, but not as wide as a loveseat. This gives plenty of room for one person to spread out and relax or two people enough room to snuggle up with each other comfortably.

How can you use a chair and a half?

Unlike a loveseat, a chair and a half is meant for the company of one. It's perfect for curling up alone with a book or enjoying your favorite shows, movies, or sports on your TV. The plentiful armrests and pillows allow for browsing the internet comfortably with your laptop or smartphone. There's also something comforting and jubilant about being surrounded by an oversized living room chair that takes you back to your childhood.

Fair warning, if you like to keep your feet firmly on the ground while maintaining perfect posture as you sit, these wonderful creations may just not be your speed.

Best Place to Put a Chair And a Half?

The beauty of a chair and a half is that you can add one to almost any room in your home. One excellent way to use one is an oversized living room chair. Your media room and family room are also natural locations.

Despite the extra room that it takes, an oversized accent chair is actually perfect for a small bedroom. It fits better than a loveseat does, while still providing ample room for sitting or laying out your clothes. It also perfectly accents bedroom furniture, blending in seamlessly with your room's design.

There really isn't a room in your home that couldn't welcome a nice, comfy oversized chair.
