When you decorate your home's interior with accent chairs, you are either adding style to a disregarded space of a room or infusing some charm into some furnished areas that will otherwise look bland. Perhaps what needs pepping up is an empty section along a hallway's wall, a reading corner in the family room, around the 3-seater leather sofa in the living room, or in the bedroom, right by the nightstand. Wherever you place an accent chair or two, you can be assured that it will always accentuate and spotlight the room in an aesthetically pleasing way.
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.
Slipper chairs are one of the most versatile pieces of furniture and can even be used to separate the dining and living areas in a single room. If you’re wondering where the name “slipper chair” comes from, you might be surprised to learn that the name originated from the Victoria era chair that was easy for Victorian ladies to get in and out of when slipping on their shoes.
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.
