Incorporating accent chairs into your room arrangement can provide functional and stylish decor. Centering a small table between two accent chairs in a living room nook provides a decorative conversation area. Position a sofa in front of a fireplace flanked by two accent chairs facing each other to form a decorative “square” furniture arrangement. Or center two accent chairs and a table across from a sofa in a room without a fireplace.
Creating the ambiance you want in a room is important. Your new accent chair should make your room look more inviting — not cluttered. In a bedroom, an accent chair can provide the perfect sitting area. Placing a chair next to a window with a small table and lamp creates a cozy reading nook. Comfortable chairs that recline or pair with an ottoman are great for low-traffic areas. It’s also important to ensure traffic can navigate comfortably around whoever is seated.
A Bergere arm chair is an enclosed upholstered French armchair with an upholstered back and armrests on upholstered frames. Fitted with a loose, tailored seat cushion the Bergere is designed for lounging in comfort with its deep and wide seat. The loose seat cushion is what keeps it from feeling overly formal. Bergere chairs may have flat,“raked” backs or have coved backs which sweep without a break in to the armrests.
Scale is one of the most important considerations when purchasing furniture. For any room, the size of the accent chair should be in proportion to the space so the room doesn’t diminish it, or vice versa. Make sure the height of the seat is in balance with other seating in the room. For tall guests, avoid chairs that are too low to the ground; for petite guests, avoid chairs with a deep seat length.
