The ottoman is a multipurpose piece of furniture, which can also be used in other settings if not being used with a chair.

These are ultra comfy chairs with a lot of soft padding, and the leg supports are foldable for a variety of seating options. The elbow rests are also padded and can be tilted at any angle. Considered ideal for movie viewing, these chairs are also great for a nice coffee when you are back from work. Also along with comfort, they enhance the interior décor of the room.

4: Chaise lounge –

A single piece of furniture with no concealed or foldable parts, this is nearly like a sofa, but with the back fixed on the narrow end instead of the broad one like a couch and no handles. Sometimes there is a back attached but it is more for a decorative purpose than anything else. The lounger is generally fitted with very comfortable cushions and upholstered well for maximum comfort. This is an ideal pick if your area is a little open and there is no chance the lounger will choke it up because it looks bulky. Pick your chaise lounge carefully as there is no guarantee the bend, this type of chair has, will be properly shaped.

If your home is towards the smaller side, a simple armchair with a small stool is enough if put together. No need to go for space consuming furniture elements unless there is room for them. Choose comfortable chairs, not just some designer fancy piece on sale. The chairs are your comfort and unwinding zone when home, work it that way.
