Often it just takes one item to make a space really sing, and seating is one of our favorite ways to accomplish this. The right chair offers so many design solutions: Color and functionality, plus a healthy dose of whatever your personal style is, whether it’s mid-century or boho or something else. Need a little inspo? Take a cue from these Instagram influencers who took statement seating from the modern design pros at Industry West and personalized it for their own homes.

Natural Vibes

The handwoven wicker of the Perle Noir Chair is a study in how to do breezy and lightweight two different ways. Savannah McNeill of Hey Wanderer uses the natural materials to fit into her mini “jungle”-inspired spot with the pink really standing out…

…while the same chair in the grey colorway adds harmony to Black & Blooms‘ Sara Toufali’s bedroom book nook by using the pink as visual balance.

Organic Modern

In white, the sleek and chic Voyager Chair balances the folksy estate sale finds in Leela Cyd‘s dining room…

…but in brass, Rachel Paxton of Maison de Pax uses the Voyager to warm up her fireside spot. It becomes an unexpected modern moment in an otherwise classic space.

Lush and Luxe

How stunningly blue is that petrol velvet? The Carmel Dining Chair is a big blue exclamation point in the eclectic home of the Hommeboys (aka Austin Carrier and Alex Mutter-Rottmayer)…

…and in Ludo grey it becomes a strong anchor in the colorful living room of Ariel Pietrobono of City + Shells.

The Little Black Chair

The slim and unique profile of the JOI TwentyFour Chair fits in and stands out. Just like a Chanel LBD, the black piece can be dressed up more formally, like Restoring Home‘s Angela Meuller did in her living area…

…and can be dressed down just as stylishly, like in this playroom styled by Anna Smith of Annabode + Co.

Mod and Versatile

With an endless array of color and base combos, this mod TA Armchair can work anywhere. Rikki Snyder reinforces her rustic-contemporary style in ocean blue with a black base…

…while Doreen Corrigan completes her dreamy desk setup in white with a chrome base.

Whether your space needs a piece that’s meant to be the focal point, or to subtly pull it all together, a stylish chair will fit the brief. And these versatile designs from Industry West prove that it’s easy to pull off, whether you’re a novice or an aspiring decorator.
