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.
Define your style and space — Accent chairs come in a variety of styles. First, consider whether you prefer a more traditional, or a sleek, contemporary look. The style of your home and how you want to use the space in which you’ll be incorporating your accent chair are important. To add a bit of sophistication to the room and showcase your unique personality. If you prefer comfort, an oversize accent chair provides a cozy place to curl up at the end of the day to read a book or watch television. In terms of colour, it’s often wise to choose something that could work in more than one room so that you can switch things up later if you desire.
In certain cases, depending on the size, scale and seat height, accent chairs can work as host chairs for your dining table, if you’re going for a more unique look. Step out of the box and use four chairs and a large ottoman, instead of the traditional sofa and chairs, to create a conversation area. Sometimes once a room is finished you realize that something is lacking in the personality or color department. Maybe it’s a quirky or fun little accent chair with distinctive details, a unique shape, or colorful fabric.
Think about how you’ll use your accent chair — and who will be using it. Are you looking for something comfortable in which to relax and read your Kindle, or do you prefer a unique statement piece? Accent chairs in recreation and living areas are likely to be used frequently, so durable, yet comfortable and stylish leather chairs could be a perfect fit. Chairs situated in hallways or bedrooms can be chosen more for their style, so a hand-crafted wood or antique chair might be a good choice. To use your accent chairs as extra seating in the dining room, select firm, sturdy chairs that are the correct height (usually with a seat 16 to 18 inches high).
