How to Create Accent Chair Perfection
Is there a more versatile piece of furniture than the accent chair? We think not. Whatever your style, there is an accent chair for your space. Read on for everything you need to know about accent chair form, design and styling.
WHAT IS AN ACCENT CHAIR?
Accent chairs take in a wide range of styles and shapes. More than just seating, accent chairs add colour, interest and a style moment to any room. They’re at home in living spaces, bedrooms, reading nooks, and even as a feature of dining tables.
HOW TO DECORATE WITH ACCENT CHAIRS
ACCENT CHAIRS FOR SMALL LIVING SPACES & BEDROOMS
With their petite form, a slipper chair is the one for you if you have a small space to style. Armless and generally upholstered, space-saving accent chairs can be slipped in next to a coffee table or sofa.
Style tip: When slipper chairs are placed in a bedroom, their deco contours create an elegant and chic focal point.
ACCENT CHAIRS FOR LARGE LIVING & DININGS SPACES
If you have a large space, a wingback chair may work for you. The generous scale of a wingback chair makes it an ideal friend for a large sofa, and the size and weight of this style means it gives a sense of balance and consistency of scale in a room.
Style tip: The grand feel of these chairs means they also work surprisingly well as end chairs for a dining table.
