Accent chairs can add extra flair and comfort to any room. With countless design choices, it’s easy to find the right chair to match your style and space. Here are some that we recommend.
Choosing an Accent Chair That’s Right for You
Here are the main things to consider:
- Size: The size of the chair and the room you put it in are equally important. You don’t want the chair to take up an unnecessary amount of space, but you also don’t want it to be dwarfed by the rest of your furniture. While an accent chair is meant to stand out, you also want it to match your room’s design.
- Function: When purchasing an accent chair, you need to think about how it will be used. For example, will it be in your bedroom acting as a chair for your vanity? Will it be somewhere for your clients to sit in your office? Or will it be a lounge chair in the living room?
- Design: Similar to its size, it is important to keep the chair’s design in mind. A mid-century modern chair wouldn’t look right in an art-deco-style home. You also need to decide what features you want the chair to come with, such as storage capabilities, armrests, or an ottoman.
