5 Seating Options for Extra Guest

Major holidays may be over but hosting season never ends. Whether you’re hosting a casual event like Sunday football or a formal dinner party, extra seating is always a common concern. The majority of us can agree, there has been a time while preparing to host an event that you wondered, where is everyone going to sit? So we’ve complied some ideas for extra seating for guest – that aren’t plastic chairs!

  • Ottomans – ottomans are the ultimate way to add comfortable extra seating. Ottomans can be staples in a living area but also provide a comfortable way to add everyday style and to pop your feet on and watch television when guest aren’t around.




  • Stackable chairs/barstools – stackable chairs don’t have to an eyesore. They now come in stainless steel, a variety of colors and are ultra stylish. They’re perfect to add seating to a dinner party or just pop into a living area for more guest to lounge on. This is a customer favorite because they're easy to stack and store away in the garage with minimal space taken.




  • Bench and storage benches – Storage benches are an excellent way to add extra seating for your guest. They can easily be moved from guest bedrooms and can be used as storage when you don’t have guest. Tip: Use a classic wooden bench as a functional display in your entry so it's never in the way when you're not hosting.




  • Accent chairs – accent chairs are a great way to add extra seating for guest and the majority of homes already have them. You can easily pull up accent chairs to a dining table or from living area to living area so that you can dine or watch TV in style.






  • Lounge bags aka beanbags – The lounge bag is the sophisticated way of saying ‘bean bag’. Beanbags have come a long way since the old school kids room staple. They now come in difference lux fabrics and are ultra comfortable. They are a more casual way to adding seating to a movie or game night.





  • Floor cushions - we know that offering the floor to your guests may not be your first instinct but when you add in comfortable floor cushions, it's a great option - especially for kids! This is also a great option for playing games around a coffee table or lounging around the TV.
