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.
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.
The good thing is that there is no hard and fast rule about how furniture accents should be chosen and placed so its good to know that these stylish single chairs, with or without arms, can be used just about most areas of the home. Make up a cosy nook in a corner of the room, Use as a single chair that serves as a great companion for the sofa, Set it up as a private seating area with a small coffee table and reading lamp, Looks nice when set in place as “duo seating” (with a little round top table) at the foot of your bed.
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.
