Oversized chairs can make a room appear cozy and comfortable and is ideal for large rooms. Oversized chairs are upholstered and cushioned chairs that are larger than a standard chair or recliner, but not quite as large as a loveseat or sofa. These chairs are sometimes known as a chair and a half, and they are designed to be comfortable and spacious. They often come with a hassock or footrest as well, and this unit is generally upholstered and cushioned as well. Oversized chairs will take up more room in a living area than a normal chair or recliner, so anyone considering purchasing one will need to take accurate measurements of the room before purchasing.
The specific designs of oversized chairs can vary in much the same way that the designs of normal chairs will vary. The materials used for construction and upholstery can vary; upholstery can be cotton, synthetic materials, leather, and so on. The materials can have an impact on the appearance of the chair, as well as its durability and comfort. Oversized chairs are often overstuffed, which means the cushioning is often quite deep and soft. Some even come with matching throw pillows for even more comfort options.
