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.
A chair’s upholstery can add textural colour to a living room. Buttery leather upholsteries in rich brown or brick red add a warm elegance to a living room. White or shiny black leather sets a lively, modern tone. Fabric chairs upholstered in cozy chenille, corduroy or velvet add inviting texture to a space. Microfiber is an ideal upholstery choice for homes with kids and pets; it’s durable and easy to clean. Choosing a neutral upholstery — such as beige, brown, gray or off-white — allows you to punch up the colour with toss pillows and furniture throws. An upholstery fabric in a stripe, paisley, geometric print or other pattern can help to “turn up the decorating heat” in a living room.
In certain cases, depending on the size, scale and seat height, accent chairs can work as host chairs for your dining table, if you’re going for a more unique look. Step out of the box and use four chairs and a large ottoman, instead of the traditional sofa and chairs, to create a conversation area. Sometimes once a room is finished you realize that something is lacking in the personality or color department. Maybe it’s a quirky or fun little accent chair with distinctive details, a unique shape, or colorful fabric.
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.
