Fitting in Your Room
Typically, accent chair sizes include small, standard and oversized. When incorporating a stylish accent chair into your living room, use an attention-grabbing statement piece. For placement around dining tables or in the nook of your bedroom, stick to chairs that are lightweight and take up less space.
Staying within Budget
Create a budget based on whether you want one accent chair, a matching pair, or an entire set. Often, sets are sold at reduced prices to encourage shoppers to purchase larger quantities. When you're only buying one chair, you'll want to compare prices of different sizes, styles, and fabrics, as these all factor into the cost. Assess how much you spent on your sofa or dining table, and then allot a smaller budget for a complementary accent piece. Accent chairs can be under $100, or as much as $200 or $300.
The Perfect Color & Style
Liven up your space with patterned or multi-colored accent chairs that combine tones from your existing furniture with contrasting hues for a subtle accent. Bold solid colors brighten up a room, while subdued neutrals blend easily into existing decor. Complete any of these charming looks by choosing the best style to match your room and color scheme.
When the other furniture lacks pizzazz, the best way to spice up your room is by adding a patterned accent chair. The pattern should pull colors from the other furniture but can bring in additional colors as well. A patterned accent chair can be a stellar focal point for a room or it can simply add a bit of depth. When you use a pattern well it showcases your eye for design, which will impress all of your guests.
For a contemporary feel and optimal comfort, check out slipper chairs, which are armless and low to the ground, or club chairs, which feature extra-deep, plush seats. Arm, swivel, and side chairs are classic and practical. Commonly, dining rooms benefit from slender side chairs, as these offer portable, stylish seating. Swivel chairs, which rotate with ease, and armchairs that offer refined elegance and side supports, look great in living rooms and dens. Accent chair colors include:
Picking Out the Fabric
Homeowners with young children or pets might opt for accent chairs with higher-quality durable materials such as leather and suede, as they often last longer and have a stronger resistance to stains. If you're looking for a simple decorative piece to be used infrequently, consider velvet, or less costly fabrics like Microfiber.
