Occasional furniture is functional rather than decorative, and can be used when needed rather than being essential items such as sofas and chairs. Yes, many believe a coffee table to be essential, but only on the occasions when you need it to rest a drink or a plate. You can spend an evening comfortably watching TV from your sofa without having to use an occasional piece of furniture.
However these chairs are not the earliest pieces furniture to use this approach to keeping comfortably warm. Wings were also used on some of the high-backed wooden settles found in English manor houses and pubs/inns. Usually these settles were bare wooden benches but sometimes long cushions were added for comfort, long before the new kind of upholstered chair brought an extra level of comfort to the late 17th century.
