Accent chairs are way more than just an extra seat. They can make a statement about you and your home. Here’s how you can spice up any room with a comfortable and stylish show-stopper. An easy way to add interest to a room with a neutral palette is with a chic, standout armchair. Stick to the same hue — a white accent piece will complement the comfy ambiance in the living space. If you have a large window, make the most of the natural sunlight and place the chair in front to create a cozy reading spot.
The stylish occasional chair: Typically light and chic, 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. The generous wingchair: The large size makes it the perfect accompaniment to a sofa and great alternative to a love seat. Place it near the fireplace in your bedroom or living room or be creative and use a pair as the head chairs at either ends of your dining table. Note that since these chairs are heavy, they cannot be moved around too much.
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.
If you want to try something a little daring and different, use your wingback chairs as end chairs at the head and foot of a dining table. There’s something undeniably thronelike about the stately shape of wingback chairs, and as dining chairs they give meals added gravitas. The wingback chair’s style and sexy curves can turn any room from drab to fab. Don’t be afraid to show this one off in a colourful hue!
