Blue living room chairs sold by Overstock.com provide a calming, relaxing, and inviting vibe for your space. Blue also contrasts with white, accentuates black, complements grey, and offsets orange and red. In a light-colored room, a blue living room chair can dampen the overall brightness. In a dark-colored room, a light shade of blue can brighten the space without a full decor overhaul. Overstock carries several national brands of blue living room chairs, including Madison Park, Safavieh, Signature Design by Ashley, Abbyson, Chic Home, Meridian, and Copper Grove. You’ll have plenty of options to choose from when you shop for blue living room chairs at Overstock.com.
Traditional-style blue living room chairs range in color from light to dark, and they may have button tufting to create an elegant look. Nailhead trim is dark against light blue upholstery, and silvertone, brass, or goldtone pair well when your chair contains a dark shade of blue. Wooden legs with a dark shade of stain are common. High-backed chairs are prominent in traditional styles, which increases your blue canvas for maximum decorative impact.
Modern and contemporary blue living room chairs feature sleek designs and updated fabrics. Rather than leather, velvet, or traditional linen, you might find polyester fabric or microfiber. Rather than rounded arms, you may see integrated arms that are extensions of the back for a cohesive sea of blue that welcomes your guest to sit down and relax. Modern and contemporary pieces in light blue add subtle hints of color to your room when you have a small piece. Larger blue living room chairs make a greater statement in terms of your overall decorating scheme.
Transitional blue living room chairs blend more than one style into a single piece. You might find a powder-blue upholstered chair, typical of mid-century modern designs, with button tufting and a high back from traditional styles. Discover a wingback chair with round arms that has a paisley pattern in the upholstered fabric to let you complement more than one type of blue in your overall motif.
Blue mid-century modern living room chairs normally feature one soft color done in upholstered fabric, such as turquoise, light blue, or straight blue. Look for flared legs and a low back for a minimalist piece that adds a touch of blue to your living room.
Features of Blue Living Room Chairs
High-back blue living room chairs create a larger palette of blue, which can act as a transition to a wall, accent table, piece of artwork, wall hanging, or another room. Blue on a high-back chair contrasts beautifully with the white of a wall or the light coming through a window. Low-back chairs work well next to a small end table and with a set of matching chairs. Pillows in matching or complementary shades of blue add elegant touches to low-back chairs.
Patterns come from various sources, including tufting and nailhead trim, but also from the design of the fabric. Blue floral patterns often stand out against a white background, but a contrasting pattern may include white flowers on a blue background. Stripes form complementary or contrasting patterns, such as transitioning from light blue to dark blue across a piece or simply alternating a dark shade of blue with white or light blue. Paisleys are popular in both traditional and modern chairs, while geometric patterns in diamonds, squares, and chevrons form mesmerizing waves over the entire scope of the chair.
Modern manufacturing allows for a wide variety of upholstery materials for blue living room chairs. Velvet has a traditional shine and very soft fibers, and it lightens a blue surface. Microfiber has an elegant sheen that feels smooth, and it's very durable thanks to tight weaves. Blue microfiber lightens the dark areas a bit. Cotton and polyester both have similar textures, and these fibers let you play with all kinds of color schemes and patterns to brighten or darken a room.
Sets of blue living room chairs let you produce a cohesive look while adding more blue to your room. Sets of dark blue work well in a room with white walls, while light blue furniture does well when other elements are darker. Sets generally come in two to four pieces, or you can mix and match single pieces.
Blue Living Room Chairs FAQs
How do blue living room chairs spruce up a room?
Blue living room chairs can fill out an empty corner alongside a lamp and end table to create a cozy spot. Near a window, a single chair doesn't necessarily need a light source due to the available natural sunlight. An entire set can lend a relaxing effect in light blue or an energizing cobalt blue can really liven up a space.
How do you keep blue living room chairs clean?
Clean up liquids as soon as possible before a stain sets in. Remove stains with lukewarm water and mild dish soap while using a cloth to blot the stain. Let the spot air dry to complete the process.
What types of firmness do blue living room chairs have in their seats?
Blue living room chairs vary in firmness from firm to very soft. Thin cushions normally mean a firm seat without any springs. Thick cushions may contain springs, memory foam, and polyester fill to achieve an extremely soft and bouncy seat. These chairs may appear thicker and sturdier than thin-cushioned chairs.
