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 colour, texture and pattern of your bedroom and living room furniture impact your décor in a big way. So choose the upholstery and finish of your accent chairs carefully. Here are some tips to help. Go bold with pattern and colour, but make sure the background is neutral to avoid a chaotic and messy look. For a classic look, stay neutral and accessorize with colourful art, a rug, throws or show pieces instead. Experiment with shape. Make it that piece of art that will stand out anywhere in the room.
Choosing furniture can be daunting but the key things to look out for is style and type of materials the chair is made of. Coordinating these two will let you use chairs from different sets without having to buy all in one set. Difference in style and texture can be good especially if you are after an eclectic look. Just make sure the accent chair accents the colour scheme of the room in which you are placing it.
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.
