The solution is the judicious use of occasional chairs. These come in a wide variety of traditional and contemporary styles, and come covered in a myriad of fabrics, suedes and leathers, but all are practical and flexible solutions to seating.
If you look at antique French wing chairs, or newer chairs echoing the Louis XIV or Louis XV period, you may well see a lower seat in the bergère style. Similarly, in 18th century England Hepplewhite tried lowering the seat in his designs. He called the wings saddle-cheeks, perhaps knowing that they were called cheeks, not wings, in France. Ears is their other name, used in some parts of Europe, and remembered in the old-fashioned British name lug-chair. (Lugs is slang for ears.)
