Dorm rooms can kind of be downers. After all, the furniture that’s provided might be built to last, but it’s certainly not built for style. Your dorm room is supposed to be your home away from home and ugly dorm furniture does not make it feel comfortable or hospitable to any degree. That's why it’s important to make the space your own.

One essential addition to any dorm room is a chair. While your college or university might provide desk chairs or maybe one extra chair, it's likely going to be uncomfortable or not particularly stylish. So having at least one extra chair of your own is a must for any college student.   

Here are nine chairs ideal for dorm rooms. From extra cozy bean bag chairs, to trendy hanging chairs and chairs perfect for reading/studying corners — these will fit both your space and lifestyle.
