How to Choose The Perfect Accent Chair for your Space

There can be times where I find myself designing a whole room around the perfect accent chair. This is the piece of furniture when your own personal style can really shine through. Unlike a sofa or sectional, the accent chair is where it is more than acceptable to take risks with fun fabrics, colors and, patterns. Sometimes adding an accent chair with fun touches such as throw blankets, and pillows, is all you need to create a room that looks like it’s from Pinterest. Here I’m going to show you some of my favorite accent chairs and some fun ways to use them!

First, I recommend starting with what kind of style you are going for in the room. The Thatcher Chair looks like a piece of art with its exposed stick like back. Combining this unique exposed wood frame to a fabric chair brings an earthy feel to your room an creates a bohemian look.

Exposed brass legs with a pop of color in the body fabric is perfect for a mid-century modern look. Adding a fluffy throw blanket or fun accent pillow to any upholstered chair can finish off the look.

Trying to fill an empty corner in your room? That is the perfect place for an accent chair! By adding a chair you can create a little reading nook where you can read or enjoy your morning coffee. The chairs winged shape is great for fitting into small corners and will add a bit of glam to your room.

Some rooms deserve the ultimate in luxury design and this tufted leather chair might be the perfect focal point. This chair is truly unique and features beautiful tufted detailing on every surface of the chair. Its scooped seat provides a comfortable spot to read your favorite book or chat with friends.

Picking an accent chair can be one of the most fun pieces of furniture you'll buy for your home. Accent chairs allow you to have a little more fun than sofas or sectionals by choosing fun patterns or bold colors. If you are looking to furnish a small home or apartment accent chairs are a great alternative to loveseats. Let your own personal style shine through by finding an accent chair that really brings your space together or create your own with custom design options.
