Small-Space Furniture for Any Room

Not every room can fit massive chairs and sofas. Some people live in smaller homes or have a small room that can't fit a massive furniture set. It's essential to provide a variety of sizing options to fit everyone's specific furniture needs.

Big rooms are common, but the demand for small furniture is still considerable. There is absolutely no reason why you can't furnish smaller spaces with nice things. If you're looking for great chairs for small spaces, you've come to the right place. Bassett Furniture has what you need to create cozy seating areas anywhere in your home.

Choosing the right chairs for small spaces is crucial. Shop our online living and dining room furniture collection for some inspired ideas in seating for small spaces.

Build the Perfect Room for Small Spaces

Large floor spaces are more versatile to design for, but our designers have several tricks up our sleeves for small spaces. Bigger rooms work better when you divide them up into a few different areas for different purposes. Smaller spaces generally follow more simple, uniform designs with distinct functions.

Where and how can you create those intimate little places in your home? Here are a few ideas to consider.

Conversation Oasis in Living Room

Usually, the living room is dominated by a big sofa or a large sectional, typically set in front of a TV. This arrangement is usually ideal for watching the big game with friends or a movie with the family.

So what if you want to have a quiet conversation away from the crowd?

One solution is to set up a conversation oasis in a corner away from the big screen. A couple of small living room chairs, a floor lamp, and small coffee or end table will do the trick. Finding comfortable chairs is easy with our vast selection of living room chairs.

A similar theory applies to the dining room. All you need is a small dining table set with a rug, and you've got yourself a perfect space for inviting friends or families over.

Reading Nook

Suppose you're a fan of disappearing into a great book or perusing your collection of magazines and other hobbies quietly. In that case, you may want to separate yourself from the TV/entertainment area. For the literary inclined, a cozy reading nook by an oversized bay window is heavenly.

All you need is a comfy accent chair and a side table to hold your warm cup of tea.

Sitting Area in Bedroom

Small bedrooms are more versatile than you might think. You don't need a whole lot of space to add a place for you to sit or lay your outfit options out the night before.

All it takes is a small upholstered bench by the foot of the bed. Voila, there's your small bedroom sitting area.

Breakfast Nook

You don't need a large living room table for every meal. A breakfast nook is more the way to go for most of us when it comes to the first meal of the day. Unless you're having your butler serving it, of course. In that case, the dining room is the right move.

However, if you don't have live-in help, a couple of small chairs and a small kitchen table or some bar stools by the kitchen island can make a great breakfast nook.

Break-out Area in Home Office

Sometimes it's nice to have a separate, dedicated space for brainstorming. Sometimes it's difficult to be productive behind the same old desk every day. A change of scenery can often stimulate creative juices.

Working with other people will help you appreciate close working spaces and how easy it is to collaborate. A small, neat break-out space – featuring a couple of simple accent chairs and a small table – can help with both of these goals.
