Scale is one of the most important considerations when purchasing furniture. For any room, the size of the accent chair should be in proportion to the space so the room doesn’t diminish it, or vice versa. Make sure the height of the seat is in balance with other seating in the room. For tall guests, avoid chairs that are too low to the ground; for petite guests, avoid chairs with a deep seat length.
This low, armless, upholstered accent chair is an excellent choice for a cozy room that is tight on space. If space is a scarce resource around your home, a slipper is a great option. Place it near the coffee table, pull it up to the dining table for extra seating, particularly in small rooms or use it to pretty up your bedroom as a duo at the end of the bed.
Consider the available space in your living room when decorating it with accent chairs. Chairs that are not in proportion with the room size can make the entire room look awkward and off balance. For example, an armless chair or a petite accent chair suits a living room with limited floor space. A chair without arms takes up less space than a chair with large, rolled arms. Likewise, accent chairs are designed to accommodate smaller spaces. An oversize chair-and-a-half fits well in a large living area and provides a cozy spot to snuggle.
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.
