Wing-back chairs are an enduring favorite for living rooms. They are designed with high backs, arm rests and winged sides, providing a formal touch. The generous size of a wingback makes it an ideal counterpart to a large sofa, since it can give the room a sense of balance in scale. It’s most commonly placed next to a fireplace. Protecting the inhabitant from drafts and the heat from a roaring fire was the original purpose of the chair’s side wings, and some things, like Canadian winters, never change.
Stylish occasional chair The stylish occasional chair: Typically light and chic, like the iconic Chivari chair, this type of chair is a multi-functional piece of furniture that can be used throughout your home, including the living room, parlour or your home office.These accents chairs run the gamut in terms of shape and style, but the one common denominator is that they’re lightweight and easy to move when the need, or “occasion,” for more seating arises. Most are armless due to the weight factor.Because occasional chairs need to function anywhere in the home, they typically have an especially eye-catching or shapely design.
The colour, texture and pattern of your bedroom and living room furniture impact your décor in a big way. So choose the upholstery and finish of your accent chairs carefully. Here are some tips to help. Go bold with pattern and colour, but make sure the background is neutral to avoid a chaotic and messy look. For a classic look, stay neutral and accessorize with colourful art, a rug, throws or show pieces instead. Experiment with shape. Make it that piece of art that will stand out anywhere in the room.
Rather than perceive them as just a couple more extra seating, these single chairs must be appreciated as additional home decor pieces that enhance any furniture they are placed around, and any space (or zone) they are set in. So, what ways can you use accent chairs and how do you know the best style chair to choose? And how do you use them to complement a space? For instance, should they be placed directly in front of your sofa or to its left or right side or should you use a bench-style accent chair against the long hallway wall? Additionally, how do you know when it’s best to use just one accent chair, or if it is better to use them as a pair?
