As the new year ramps up, I’m saying hello to new trends. Today, I’m eager to share that if you love to kick back at home (and who doesn’t?!), you’re in luck. Upholstered lounge chairs — almost like the kind you’d find outdoors poolside, only fluffier, a bit fancier, and somewhat more compact — are popping up indoors, and I’m most definitely here for it. After all, anything built for the sole purpose of kicking back and relaxing is a winner in my book.

Thinner than chaises and less bulky than accent chairs with separate ottomans, these small space-friendly loungers are ideal for placing in an empty corner of a living room or bedroom and make for a wonderful place to curl up, watch TV, or even work from home. As temperatures drop, maybe you’ll be more than okay with the idea of snuggling up on one of the trendy chairs below. These pieces are investments that you won’t regret!

Gowans Tufted Armless Chaise Lounge

If you love classic design, you’re likely a fan of anything tufted. In that case, this chair is an excellent option all around, given that it looks significantly more expensive than its under-$600 price tag and comes in two different fabric shades (with a third, beige, on back-order until February). The rounded feet add a nice traditional detail, too, making this piece a fabulous choice for an English-inspired reading nook.

Two-Toned Metal Base Lounger


Bouclé enthusiasts, I found the perfect lounger for you! This on-trend chair is an A-plus pick for those who are all about texture and love a boho, contemporary look. The white hue is excellent for minimalist homes but can be jazzed up with throw pillows and blankets, too.
