Occasional chairs, or as they there are sometimes called, exposed-wood chairs, are generally smaller than fully-upholstered chairs. Their frames are usually visible in a quality that is easy to discern even from a fair distance away. The usually have a solid feeling that results from the proper joining of frame parts, and they don't twist when you lift one corner. Suitable for a dining room or any type of formal room, they have clean, smooth joints with a minimum of nails and screws. Since they have fewer parts that are able to the bent and shaped, they are generally much stronger. If you have an old, occasional chair that you simply can't part with, there is always the option of using a fleece throw blanket or slipcovers instead of replacing the entire chair.
When making a change in the room, removing and discarding the chair seems pointless, especially if you buy a high quality occasional chair. You need to the ability to use the chair in any room and have it blend in with ease.
Before you start shopping around you have to find where you want to place the occasional chair. Walk into the room and choose a focal point. If it's the bedroom then the bed is your focal point, in the living room it's your dining table and in your office it's your work desk.
Fabrics used were not necessarily subdued or subtle. Bright patterns were seen in both colonial and Georgian drawing rooms. Restorers of 18th century antiques often prefer plain coloured fabrics, but this is not necessary for authenticity. Leather upholstery is also a valid option.
