Next is the style, which must not be too divergent from the style of the rest of the room. Pick the right style that compliments your other furniture. You’ll need to decide whether it should be a recliner which works well in a contemporary setting, wing chairs if you have classic style furniture or slipper chairs that can transform your home décor setting into something out of the Victorian era. Finally, you must pick the right kind of material with the right kind of texture. If your sofa is upholstered with leather, for instance, your accent chairs can be colour coordinated velvet, damask, cotton, or wool.
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?
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.
Bedroom’s are often our place to retreat at the end of the day, and an accent chair or two in the room provide a quiet, private place to decompress. The problem of an awkward and empty corner can many times be solved by adding an accent chair, table and lamp, or floor lamp, to create some cozy. If there’s room, a chair in the entry adds a welcoming touch, as well as providing a space for guests to take their shoes off and on. Use a fun little chair instead of a piano bench to add some style and personality to your music room or piano space. Use one in place of a desk chair, as a spot for clients to sit when conducting business, or for family to sit and chat in your home office.
