How you decorate with accent chairs depends on a combination of the overall look you wish to achieve and where you intend to place them. Also, depending on the general style of your interior space - is it modern, traditional, classic, or eclectic, it is good to ensure you choose one that's the right scale in comparison to other furniture items it will be placed around. The size/area of the zone within which it will be placed must also be considered.
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).
The best thing about accent chairs is that they are so easy to stand alone, especially with stripes or patterns gone mad. Don't worry about mismatching — just place it in the spotlight as the signature piece and flaunt your style. For a large room, place a wide lounge chair in a bare corner that needs attention. The wingback chair: a dapper, celebrity-like piece of furniture with its signature high-back and contoured wings.
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?
